Sort Google Videos by Rating

Google Video has a new sorting criteria for search results: the rating. After relevance, user's rating is the second most important criteria when ranking the results of a search. But Google has a strange way of sorting the results, as you can see in this search for "Madonna", where the third result should be in front of the first two results. Or maybe I'm missing something...

  1. Google would not be what it is if things would be simple and no some math behind it.

    It is obviously some product of number of votes and average score, nonlinear equation. At least I would do it that way.

  2. OK Checked one more time, number of views is very important factor it seems it is number of function (views,avg_rating,no_ratings,?date)
