Explaining how Google works, he said “Anytime you type in a Keyword, as Google we have gone out and crawled and stored copies of billions of Websites pages in our index. And we take the Keyword and match it against their pages and rank them based on over 200 signals – things like relevance, freshness, popularity, how other people are using it.
And based on that, at any given time, we try to rank and find the best search results for that query. And then evaluate it to objective guideline. And that how we make sure the process is working. This is working at scale and we dont manually intervene on any particular search result” He said.
So from the above result, one can easily concurred that Google doesnt identify Bawumia as the biggest liar in Ghana, However Bawumia’s image might have appeared because many Ghanaians have used the word of tern with his name and Images.
