We believe Google's technological feats are phenomenal, are they're so far beyond our comprehension, they never cease to amaze us.
And as amazing as Google's algorithms are, we can't help but come up with a theory as to why
they keep them secret and never let anyone know what they are. The convention wisdom is their algorithms are proprietary, and of course, no one, in any industry, ever lets those secrets out.
But not long ago, it occurred to us there might be another reason why Google keeps all those algorithms so secret. Consider the fact that, maybe... just maybe... they don't want the world to know they've been off more than once when it comes to understanding human intentions.
To read our theory in it's entirety, click here.
Our theory is based on the fact that conventional wisdom can be wrong, as it has in the past.
And we're thinking that Google has used some conventional wisdom to base their algorithms on. Of course, it's absolutely nothing to be ashamed of, but what if they were wrong about what they based their algorithms on? Would You want to let on, then have to tell the world you might have misjudged human nature? I can understand why no one can predict human nature, but you still wouldn't want to admit you misread it, right?
So check out one Columbus web design firm's opinion on the subject. We're not saying our theory is the real reason Google is so secretive, it's just one potential scenario. But naturally, we could be wrong!
