“Spam results from the likes of Demand Media and other “content farms, and made-for-adsense landing pages.”
I assume Skrenta would classify all “mini-sites” as spam as well.
Skrenta is quoted as saying that:
“”Blekko distinguishes itself from Google and Bing by excluding from its search listings spam results from the likes of Demand Media and other “content farms”, and made-for-adsense landing pages.”
“If you do a health-related search on Google, such as ‘cure for headaches,’ go and try 10 random health queries and tally how much spam you see there,” says Skrenta. “You’ll see nonsesnse domains.”
Not sure if Demand Media is going to be really happy having its sites classified as spam with all the writers they have engaged with ehow.com.
