"John said 'It's-- like, when we try to understand the relevance of a website, on the one hand, we try to look at the bigger picture of the website.' He added 'But we do also look at smaller parts of a website. So it can certainly happen that some things go up, some things go down. And on average, across a domain, you will see some change, or maybe it'll even out even in kind of weird coincidental cases. So that's certainly possible, the way that you're seeing things there.'"
