Google's John Mueller Can See Search Spam In Multiple Languages

Google’s John Mueller is able to see and identify content search related spam without even speaking the language. Supposedly this is not a magical power or even that hard to do by someone who was trained to catch spam, but nevertheless, he is able to spot spammy content in languages he does not understand.

How do we know this? John Mueller replied to a question on Twitter saying “If it’s the site in your profile, it might be worth also getting rid of all the rewritten filler content, if you’re trying to make it shine.” Well, that site is written completely in Hindi, and while John speaks English, Germany and probably a couple more languages – he does not speak Hindi.

This was then noted by Christoph C. Cemper with this tweet:

So is this some sort of mystical magical power that John has? John said no, he said there is “no magic necessary” for spotting rewritten filler content in other languages.

Pedro Dias, former Google spam fighter explained that you can use Google Translate and also a trained eye can spot this stuff in languages they do not speak:

I’ll just tag this as magic. 🙂

Published

on

Here is a recap of what happened in the search forums today, through the eyes of the Search Engine Roundtable and other search forums on the web.


Google had their Search On event yesterday and it was a lot of small announcements that can help searchers in a big way. Google Ads continues to have latency issues. Google said you should really avoid changing URLs. Google Posts may have an issue with submissions. Microsoft Bing is testing traffic analysis in the search results.

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • All The Google Announcements From Search On 2022

    We had another Google Search On event yesterday and in case you missed it or you simply do not want to read through a lot of fluff, here is the short version. Note, I am pretty sure we covered tests of all of these announcements in the past at this site, so everything should look familiar.
  • Google Ads Continues To Suffer From Latency Issues

    Google Ads continues to suffer from ongoing latency issues – mostly from the Google Ads console. This is the place advertisers go in and manage their ads. It has become a joke about how the console can slow down and become almost unusable.

  • Google Really Wants You To Avoid Changing URLs Just For SEO Reasons

    Google’s John Mueller has put down some strong language against changing your URLs for SEO reasons alone. He basically said in most cases, changing URLs will have a negative impact on SEO and that you probably should not change URLs just for SEO reasons.

  • Bing Tests Traffic Analysis In Search Results Snippets

    Microsoft Bing is testing displaying more details in the page insights overlay feature in search. Now Bing is showing traffic analysis, like monthly visitors, the geo-location of those visitors, how they found your site and more.
  • Google Posts Submit Button Not Working For Some

    Over the past 24 hours or so, there has been a ton of complaints that the Google Posts submit button is not working. I personally tested it and it seems to work for me, but a Google My Business help thread has tons of complaints about the Google Posts not submitting.

  • Google Ballroom Dancing

    Okay, this might not be ballroom dancing, I know very little about dancing, but you can see a video below of these Googlers dancing. The post on Instagram says it is during a lunch break.
