Google announces algorithmic changes and new reporting mechanisms to prioritize high-quality results

Google faced criticism in recent months for delivering search results that were wildly inaccurate or offensive, that’s why Google recently updated its Search Quality Rater Guidelines to limit the spread of offensive or inaccurate search results, which human evaluators use to gauge the quality of search results.
