Google Patents and Ranking?

Well, I just read an article an it brought up a 2 new Patents that Google filed, which you can read about here: Document Scoring Based on Traffic Associated with a Document and Document Scoring Based on Query Analysis.

    Web page creation date
    Changes and updates of a web page
    Analysis of search queries
    Links, link texts and the changes of the links
    Website traffic
    User behavior
    Web page topics
    Domain related information

Pretty wild and logical if you ask me. All search engines should use some of those as ranking criteria but they will hopefully use it with a grain of salt. You wouldn’t want to get dinged because your site doesn’t update for a long period of time, if it was ranked highly originally.
