google spam fighterYesterday, Matt Cutts, Google's head of search spam, posted a long video describing what the typical day is like for a Google spam fighter.

First he explains that there are two types of spam fighters, the engineers who write algorithms and the manual action spam fighters who handle specific cases manually.
