Would you trust the information presented in this article from Ahmed’s 23 questions mean that you check the trustworthiness of each page separately and directly or is it more in a way that if users trust a page, they might want to engage with the site in the future and recommend it to the others?”
JOHN MEULLER (Webmaster Analyst from Google):
Yes, it’s more like the second part in the sense that this is more of an indirect effect. Obviously, there’s no practical way for us to check every web page individually. I recently for a presentation we’re doing for school kids tried to figure out how many web pages there are on the web and taking the number that we’ve published, which I think is 130 trillion web pages, and if you were to print all of those out, you would have over, what is it? 33 piles of paper that go from the Earth to the Moon. So this is really something where there is absolutely no practical way for anyone to review the trustworthiness or even just to read or scan the headlines of every web page out there. So from a practical point of view, that’s kind of impossible.
