Not sure if I should be glad that the spammers think my blog’s good enough to spam, or rather be concerned how good this spam is this time. There’s lots of spam in blogs, most of the time you can’t even read it as it doesn’t make much sense. This one is quite good, and it doesn’t even sound too spammy.

Google’s blind love for Wikipedia
I found a great article about Google’s algorithmic failure when it comes to Wikipedia. According to Google most users like Wikipedia entries in the SERPs, so far so good. But Graywolf has some high-ranking (often #1) wikipedia results with nearly no content. He tested with Tour de France cities (Google really likes the Tour de France!), Lannemezan one is my favorite (if there is more content now than please check some older revisions of that article).
Now Google, tell us again that content is everything. 😉

Google and Privacy
Google added – after 8 years – a Privacy link to their homepage. Due to Googles layout – Nazis the “Google” – link had to get removed, apparently there is a word limit for their homepage.
I think its cynical to replace the word “Google” with the word “Privacy”. Google still insists that IP addresses aren’t personal data. Nice try. Sure, an IP address without a date and time is possibly useless (but hey, most companies have static IP addresses, Google forgot about those), but Google surely saves the date and time as well.
Probably this court decision made Google think a bit? Lets see what will happen next…
Google doesn’t love blogs anymore [Update]
So this post is somehow a test, I’ve read it quite often now that Google stopped showing blogs in the SERPs, even though the posts can be found in the blog search.
