>so they might make a system to make those results that you see now and immediately realize won't be useful more enticing

All good points and I'm inclined to agree, but that one remark made me think "Isn't that what they do already anyway?" After all, Google is the ultimate clickbait engine - it's up to me to get my site//page listed at the top their rankings by whatever means necessary because very few people search beyond the first page of results and mine had, therefore, be pretty damn eye-catching.

Because it's not Google's problem where you are ranked, it's yours. Google's problem is to ensure people pay to be at the top - and they've got that bit of it sewn up just by being Google, haven't they? To google - they're a verb!
