User experience drives search engines, and hence their results. Search Engine Result Presentation/Placements naturally follow that route.

This means that search results are no longer exclusively based on just ranking criteria. Amongst other critical factors is understanding the notion of 'ordering vs ranking', the impact of context and many others.
