According to an official response from Google…
Questions about Google, Google Search, and search engine optimization are not allowed because Google Answers researchers are not employees of Google. Researchers donâ€™t have access to any â€œinsideâ€? information. The information they do have access to is available for free on the Google help pages or by writing to Google support.

Man, I’m such a trouble-maker.
