Google's New Software to Find Spam Pages

In Google's fight to weed out spam pages and honeypot pages aimed solely to have visitors click on ads, they've requested a patent on software that will detect spam documents in a phrase based information retrieval system.

What does that mean?

That means phrase stuffing pages will be nixed out of Google's database as soon as they are "detected". If you are guilty, your days may be numbered.

The patent application came out yesterday.

Thanks again.
