Google News Quality Post: Spam Getting Worse?

Jun 24, 2010 - 7:51 am 3 by

Earlier this month, we speculated that Google News is getting spammy, way spammier than it ever was.

We based this assumption based on the number of complaints in the forum thread.

Today, I spotted a Googler, Inbal, posting a single thread talking about quality in the Google News Help forum. Inbal said:

Thank you for taking the time to share your specific issues about the quality of Google News sites. While we usually won't reply to most feedback, please know that your feedback is helping to improve the experience for millions of other Google News users.

Seems interesting to me that Google would say something like this now. Is this a sign that there is an issue or like I said last time, are more people just aware of how to complain?

Forum discussion at Google News Help.
