Will Google get a webspam team outside of the US?

  • 0:00 - 0:04
    Today's question comes from
    Abroke who asks, "Europe is
  • 0:04 - 0:07
    small compared with the United
    States, so will Google get a
  • 0:07 - 0:11
    webspam team for smaller
    markets?" Great question.
  • 0:11 - 0:14
    It turns out we actually do have
    a webspam team based in
  • 0:14 - 0:16
    Europe, based in Dublin,
    in fact.
  • 0:16 - 0:19
    And they're able to handle
    webspam and tackle spam
  • 0:19 - 0:24
    reports in a wide variety of
    languages, so on the order of
  • 0:24 - 0:27
    well over a dozen, dozens of
    languages because there's a
  • 0:27 - 0:29
    lot of smart people there.
  • 0:29 - 0:32
    So we actually have people
    on the ground in a lot of
  • 0:32 - 0:36
    different offices around the
    world, and we also have
  • 0:36 - 0:39
    engineers in Zurich, we have
    an engineer in Hong Kong.
  • 0:39 - 0:43
    And so there's a lot of people
    who have native experience,
  • 0:43 - 0:47
    people who think about spam in
    Russian, but also a lot of
  • 0:47 - 0:51
    people in Dublin who do a
    fantastic job dealing with if
  • 0:51 - 0:53
    an algorithm misses something,
    they are
  • 0:53 - 0:54
    there to find the spam.
  • 0:54 - 0:56
    They know the lay of the land,
    they know who the big players
  • 0:56 - 0:59
    are, and they're really
    quite expert.
  • 0:59 - 1:03
    And so if there's some really
    unique type of link spam going
  • 1:03 - 1:07
    on in Poland, for example,
    there's a person there, and so
  • 1:07 - 1:09
    those people are on top of
    that sort of situation.
  • 1:09 - 1:13
    So I think it's important that
    Google not be just a
  • 1:13 - 1:15
    US-centric or an English-centric
    company.
  • 1:15 - 1:18
    We want to be international,
    we want to deal with all
  • 1:18 - 1:21
    different languages, and it is
    the case that we might not
  • 1:21 - 1:27
    have webspam full time on every
    single language, but you
  • 1:27 - 1:30
    would be pretty shocked at the
    number of languages that the
  • 1:30 - 1:34
    webspam team collectively is
    able to fight spam in.
  • 1:34 - 1:36
    There's a large group of people
    trying to make sure
  • 1:36 - 1:39
    that people have a good search
    experience, and that users
  • 1:39 - 1:40
    have a good experience overall.
