🤖 Google Gets Gummy with Spam

Researchers discovered a disturbing trend in Google Search: rampant SEO spam cluttering search results, particularly in product-related queries. What made Google Search so valuable was its reliability and trustworthiness. Users are now left questioning the very information they find online, wondering if they’re being fed carefully crafted propaganda instead of genuine advice.

The study points to a worrying cycle. Search engines like Google, Bing, and DuckDuckGo engage in a constant tug-of-war with spammers, achieving only temporary victories before the tide of manipulation rises again.


  • Researchers found spammy reviews flooding product searches, making it harder to find reliable information.
  • Search engines constantly battle spammers, but the fight feels never-ending, and AI-generated spam makes the future even murkier.
  • Google defends its turf, arguing that the study focuses on a limited scope.
