Learning About and Understanding Web Spam
Here’s some great reading, viewing and material for your reference shelf. With web spam continuing to be a very hot topic, I wanted to point out two papers and the slide presentations that accompany each of them. Both do a great job of describing web spam issues and making them understandable. Both papers were given during the 14th International World Wide Web Conference and AIRWeb05 that took place in May.
