WordPress Spam Saga Developments

The latest news on the WordPress Spamming Saga is that Google has reindexed their site to give it a page rank of 0 out of 10 – effectively removing it from their index at least in the short term. It seems that Yahoo has done likewise.

Along side this WordPress have now removed all of the 120,000 spam articles from their site (smart move).

    I guess to a certain extent they had to allow wordpress back into the page rank system even if only with a page rank of 0 otherwise since google owns blogger it could be argued there was a conflict of interest.

    I think it was abit harsh to penalize them for adding content to their site.
