Google: Now With Less Spam!


Just a week after Google 3.0 announced that it would tweak its formula to cut out spam, the new-and-improved algorithm is already out. We just have two questions. 1. If it was so easy to whip up a new algorithm, why didn’t this happen months ago? 2. How pissed do you think Richard Rosenblatt, CEO of content farm Demand Media, is right now? Although he maintains any effort to weed out unoriginal content will only improve traffic for “human-made” articles like “How to Put on a Speedo,” its newly public stock closed down 7 percent.
