Google Algorithm Testing
Google announced that it is testing algorithmic changes for scraper sites – blog scrapers in particular. The company is calling on users to help them.
“We are asking for examples, and may use data you submit to test and improve our algorithms,” the company says on a “Report Scraper Pages” form.
Google’s head of web spam, Matt Cutts, tweeted about the new initiative:
“Scrapers getting you down? Tell us about blog scrapers you see: http://t.co/6HPhROS We need datapoints for testing.”
This testing comes after months of iterations of Google’s Panda Update, designed to improve the quality of search results, though there has been no shortage of complaints about scrapers ranking over original content in that time.
