Google makes “real time results” more prominent. Their spam problem gets worse.

Friday, February 11th, 2011


Google recently “real time results” more prominent in search results. So what are the “real time results”? When we search for “Google search spam”, we are shown an article from someone who just discovered how to use the “-” flag in Google search as a news item. We then get  Twitter spam about that news item.

This is yet another failure of  “crowdsourcing”. It’s too easy to spam.
