I’m wondering how current this information is...is this document currently in use, or was it current 2 years ago, or 5 years ago? It’s valuable in some sense regardless, but I imagine they update these protocols pretty frequently.

@DarkMatterThe link Aaron posted does not seem to work now in terms of being able to download the original document.  Safe to say he is talking about "Version 2.1 (April 6, 2007)" or later.  I just blogged on this too but, I am still in the process of reading the document.  The version I mentioned is much more detailed than the last version and has far more pages.

Awesome info for the On Page optimization side of SEO... The "human algorithm" labeling process gives me mixed feelings mainly because it’s up to human discretion, but this is great information to have and study.@beussery: thanks for sharing it!@SlightlyShadySEO: You’ve inspired me to read it myself.@everyone: Does anyone know how long this information has been out and available? I’m not asking how old it is, but for how long it has been out.
