1 Million Spam Pages Per Hour

Matt Cutts (head of the webspam team at Google) posted a video today on YouTube talking about the types of messages that Google sends out to webmasters via Webmaster Tools.

One of the things he said was very interesting!  He mentioned that according to the search engine blekko, over 1 million spam pages are created every hour!  That’s an astonishing figure and it makes you realise what a challenge the search engines have on a daily basis in trying to combat spam.
