Google Webmaster Group Calls for Backup

Google's Webmaster Help group is getting some much-needed backup in the form of additional Google Search Quality team members. The site, manned by a team of Googlers led by Vanessa Fox and Adam Lasnik, will soon see more team members publicly answering questions on the group, according to a recent post by Lasnik.

The team has also been undergoing training to "bring this Google Group to the next level," including "online communications workshops, training in spotting issues, and even (eeek!) a review of important legal issues," Lasnik wrote.
