Blogspot Spam Gone?

Wouter Schut in the forum reports Google seemingly got rid of Blogspot spam blogs. Indeed, loading a random Blogspot page for several times I didn’t hit on any splog either. This could mean Google’s blog search (and its backlinks-indicator) improves as well. It remains to be seen if this is a temporary success for Google, or if spammers are already preparing a counter-attack – after all, their splog attempts over at Blogspot were often extremely easy to see through (like a new posting exactly every hour).

Google’s Services

Tristan Louis analyzes the different services Google covered, or didn’t cover yet. I would include a Google video search engine as the strongest missing part in terms of what competitors already have. Google Video is so far only checking user-uploaded media.

Google Mini, For Free

Google gives away a free Google Mini to any company replacing their legacy search solution with the Google Search Appliance.
