Splogs back in Blogspot & Blog Search

Doing the regular search for Zoho in Google Blog Search this morning, was surprised seeing some 30 search results having the same post headline. And all these were coming from splogs created by someone named ‘Ray’.

For sometime now, Google was doing a good job on 2 different fronts – 1) not allowing creation of splogs / scrapers and thus 2) making sure spammy sites don’t turn up in Blog Search results. Seems both have gotten a hit.

And there is one more scenario to be solved – not showing duplicated blog entries eg., a TechCrunch or a Read/WriteWeb story being duplicated all through the blogosphere.
