I am wondering if Google uses the data from all Google Chrome users for their weighting of search results. A simple bookmark count would reveal importance, then they could prioritize the search results accordingly.

I only found here the short info:

  1. Chrome Bookmarks: We know that Google collects Chrome browser usage data. Pages that get bookmarked in Chrome might get a boost.

But no more details on that topic.

Is Google using the data? And if yes, to what extent?

    That's a good question, but I doubt you'll get an authoritative answer from anyone outside of Google. – freginold Jan 19 '18 at 12:46
  • I doubt it. If it were true it would be too easy to game. – ale Jan 19 '18 at 17:26
