Novi trendovi u rezultatima pretrage: Kako se SEO spam menja?

The quality of search results on Google has been deteriorating, according to a growing number of internet users. A recent study conducted by researchers from the University of Leipzig and Bauhaus University in Weimar confirms this observation.

The study analyzed thousands of search results and revealed an increasing amount of low-quality content and pages optimized for search engines, commonly referred to as “SEO spam”. These pages are deliberately tailored to suit the Google search algorithm’s criteria for visibility, but often fail to provide users with the desired information.

The impact of artificial intelligence (AI) can further exacerbate this situation in the future as it increasingly influences the creation and customization of web pages for internet search.

Furthermore, the research results highlighted that the top search results often consist of content solely aimed at “affiliate marketing” and benefiting the authors, rather than offering valuable information to users.

Search engines like Google, Bing, and DuckDuckGo have fallen prey to extensive spam campaigns. Many spam contents masquerade as low-quality product reviews. Despite Google’s claim to combat spam, researchers note a continuous decline in the quality of texts displayed at the top of search results.

Despite the findings of this research, Google disagrees with the conclusions and asserts that the analysis was limited to product reviews only, failing to reflect the overall quality of search results.
