Google's Promise to Fight Against CSAM
Google has amended its spam policy and ranking guidelines to explicitly address the issue of child sexual abuse material (CSAM). The company now focuses on quickly deleting bad stuff and lowering the rank of websites with lots of harmful content. Google has done this before, but now its docs show it's serious about tackling this problem.
AI-Generated Content in Google Snippets
A recent incident involving Google's Featured Snippets highlighted the difficulties of AI-generated content. A user's search for “can you melt eggs” resulted in an incorrect answer from Quora's built-in AI feature, ChatGPT. The event showed how AI-made stuff in search results can spread fake info. Google's having a hard time keeping snippets real, and it shows how important SEO is and how we need reliable info.
