Google: We Fight Spam All Around The World But English Spam Gets More Attention

Aug 6, 2013 - 8:54 am 15 by

Google SpamGoogle's Matt Cutts said Google does indeed fight spam at a global level both algorithmically and manually.

In a recent video, Matt said they have Googlers who fight spam manually in over 40 different languages and regions. He added that with most of their algorithms, they do their best to make sure they work in all languages and not just English.

If you remember, Panda first rolled out on English queries only and then began rolling out to other languages such as Asian languages later. But with Penguin it launched in most all of the countries.

Google's Matt Cutts did admit that English language queries in Google.com do get more attention because (1) there are more searchers there and (2) there are more engineers who speak the language and use Google.com.
