« Umbria Almost Releases White Paper on Splogs | Main | Two New Search Engines »

January 11, 2006


Marshall Kirkpatrick

I've been wanting to do a write up on what the various blogsearch engines are doing to fight spam, but they sure aren't very forthcoming with info! I understand that it's an arms race with sploggers, but some assurance that they are meaningfully engaged with the issue would sure be nice.

Anecdotaly I find the least spam in Google Blogsearch (ironic, given the Blogger problem) and Icerocket. The most in Blogpulse and Feedster. I suppose a good way to test it would be to do searches for a location name and a common subject, and see how many of the results are splogs! Maybe I'll go do that right now.
