Secondly, revlevance, even on an algorithmic basis, is subjective. So what people are after, because they're optimizing in order to rank well, is to create their sites in such a way as to make Google perceive them as relevant.
Yes, I understand that most people are after that, but I stand by the fact that they shouldn't be!

I much prefer (Danny's??) term 'search marketing'.

So... web site optimization, internet marketing, web site promotion...
But hey, what's in a name?

But here is the real clincher. If a site becomes banned by Google they will not tell you why!

Ah... but if other people agree your site is the most relevant, they will link to it, voting for it as Google calls it, In theory, they still had human-reviewed results when links weren't being traded as a commodity.
Partly agree in theory, but what of JQPublic who does not have a site. In the markets I cater, the vast majority of site visitors and buyers do not have sites from which to link back to us. They may find our site the most relevant, but have no way of voting it is the most relevant site, except of course by purchasing which is what they do. This is one of the reasons I have always thought the G PR system was flawed. My concern was not what other website owners thought, but rather what the searcher thought.

How would you determine what the searcher thought?
There was a toolbar thing I used to have back in 2001 or so where you could rate sites as you viewed them. You could also use their random site button and it would just take you from site to site and ask you what you thought.
It was an interesting concept, the same way the Google happyface/sadface was- unfortunately way too easy to influence, like Alexa still is.
