Improved result ordering
We now take into account multiple factors such as the population, search volume and popularity of a place when working out which results come first, rather than simply prioritising cities.
The problem is that a place having city status doesn't always mean that it is large. For example, St Davids, a city in Wales with a population of just 1,841 would previously have had the same priority as London, a city with a population of almost 9 million.
This became even more apparent when we included data for the USA, so we've updated the ordering to generate more relevant results.
