SUBSCRIBE More Google Q&A Spam Barry Schwartz on January 2, 2007 at 9:45 am More Nathan Weinberg spotted Google Q&A spam yesterday for a search on how tall is paris. The results led to an adult site (I saw it myself yesterday), but have now been plugged. This is not the first time Google had issues with spam in the Google Q&A feature. First report was September 2006, which was fixed soon after also.

I’m so glad algorithms have improved.
