Google is very secretive about how it decides what sites come up first on any given search. The formula changes regularly to keep people from figuring it out. It’s about to get even harder to predict. A new patent filed by Google on Tuesday would allow Google to analyze information about where on a page users hover their mouse cursor.
The idea is that this will show the search giant what people were interested in, but didn’t actually click on. Sound insane? It does to me. If you are typing, your cursor is just left in some random spot on your screen most likely.
