Google Says Thank You To Top Contributors

Google Top Contributors SignGoogle posted on their official blog a thank you to the top contributors who spend countless hours helping support Google products and services without compensation.

As you know, the other week, the top contributors were mostly at Google for a special summit. Yesterday, Google recapped the events on their blog and called them a "critical part of the Google family."

I am not sure of the raw number of Top Contributors, but Google did say they "contribute to 250 product communities in 26 different languages." I know many TCs myself and for the most part :) they are outstanding people.

So, here is the answer to my question "Does Google still have loyal followers?" It has couple of hundreds for sure. P.S. Some of them were active Google spammers before, but I assume this is just another proof that they are loyal.

Was the NSA on the invite list?

Google should really get off their wallet and hire some dedicated moderators for their forums. To call some of the comments helpful is grossly inaccurate. Many comments are just plain hostile.

NSA actually made the list so they can spy on guests

Some of them are beyond hostile and just plain mean. They treat everyone there like a black hat spammer and sometimes seem like they are just trying to be hurtful. Not every person hit by an algo update is a black hat spammer and there is no reason to treat everyone that way. I think that Google should moderate some of the comments and not let moderators just looking to take out their frustrations volunteer to "help" on the forum. They often don't offer any advice anyway. Google certainly earns enough to be able to afford to have some paid people helping on the forums. It is run like a non for profit organization.

I agree - they run it like a club of amateurs: they use profane language, attack in packs anybody who tries to question their 'expertise', or whom they consider black hat, and generally create a very negative image for Google. They even select 'best answers' themselves. How does it make any sense? The whole 'support' that they offer is a joke, and I would never say 'thank you' for their service. I wish Google closed this club for good and offered real support.

Volunteer yourself if it annoys you so much. Otherwise get your free traffic elsewhere.

I think it is important that Google should find a better way to separate spammers from genuine hard working and honest webmasters and SEOs
