Over at Cre8asite Forums, moderator Barry Welford has spotted an anomaly with the results of Google Blog Search when compared to Google's relevant search results.

Google's Blog Search: Spammy Results

Barry asks what drives the poor quality of these search results. Perhaps it is the domain upon which these blogs are hosted?

How can Google, which prides itself on its search algorithms, possibly present results that are clearly meaningless. To add insult to injury, these items were created with the free Blogger blogging software offered by Google since they all are located on the Blogspot domain.

Most forum members agree that Blogspot is a haven for spammers which isn't surprising or anything new considering the study we reported on in March. It seems like nothing has changed.

However, what is it about relevancy on Google's Blog Search engine? Why is Google neglecting a very useful tool (if I say so myself... when it works?)

I hope that the Google folks are looking to improve relevancy on the Blog Search Engine. I like using it and would hate to see these issues interfere with quality of the Google Search Engine.
