Google’s new algorithmic search

Recently Google came out with a new searching algorithm. This new algorithm changes what results pop up at the top of the page. This new page layout presented by the algorithm is “top heavy” which means that it effectively punishes the sites with alot of ads on the top of the page, by pushing them down on the results.

What does this mean? Less ads primarily, but I’m not entirely sure that this will effect. our searching capabilities too much. As for helping or hurting students and teachers, I’d wager to say that there is no difference, because we still will find what we are searching for.
