Why is it important to think about it?
All those new, trending items get lost completely when the visits to the site go down during the course of the year, like we see it now, and cant be easily found like in the case of old best selling items with a grand total of sales that happen to be trending too. Something was good about those newly discovered items but when they slip under due to site visit fluctuations they are frankly nowhere to be found.
Would you support such search engine update?
