<<Scott Huffman runs one of the least-known units at Google: the evaluation team that measures the impact of every little proposed change to the leading search engine. And with some 6,000 experiments run annually, he’s pretty busy. Not to mention, he runs mobile search at Google, too.

In a recent interview for my story on how Google’s trying to stay ahead in search, Huffman explained in detail how Google runs all those experiments—which include the use of hundreds of human evaluators in addition to Google’s massive computer infrastructure.

This is the third of a four-part series that began with search chief Udi Manber and Google Fellow Amit Singhal, who heads the core search result ranking unit. Next up on Sunday is Matt Cutts, head of the anti-Web spam unit.>>
