    I'm sure the guy was stretching the truth and I didn't care to ask any follow up questions but I don't think any one person knows the entire algo.....its too risky.

    I see google engineers all the time, including Matt Cutts and members of the webspam team at the Search Engine Strategies conferences all the time, and they are more than willing to chat.

    Good luck!

    One thing I here time and time again is they will work your socks off. Working at Google also has its perks, too.

    If you haven't seen Google's jobs page yet, here it is:

    Hi,

    Firstly, all the best mate... Do well.

    It would be interesting to know what sort of question do they ask. I've heard that they have like 2 to 3 rounds of interview in which they have seprate interview for technical, managerial and other skills. Don't know much though...

    Google recieved 1,000,000 applicants in 2006 and only hired 5000 of them. That means only .50% got hired and 99.5% didn't get hired.

    Those are some crazy odds!

    I worked as a search quality rater, only they contracted me out through a 3rd party company... So I wasn't an actual employee of Google.

    No interviews for me... just a series of tests.

    Good luck with your interview(s)... I've heard they are pretty intense...!

    Google doesn't employ anyone who doesn't have a degree or PHD which is crazy because if you have massive amounts of proven experience in the search industry but don't have a piece of paper to say you went to university and got drunk and had copious amounts of sexual partners (ok a stereo type of students I know) then you're not good enough for them.

    Good luck with the getting the job by the way :)

    I can't either. Now I sleep well at night. I am sure that I am not so unlucky to have no clue about that search algorithm. See, even the guys at Google don't know it. Spectacular.:D
