Google Sub Sub Domain Issues Clearly Visible

Threadwatch reveals some more examples of issues Google is having. They note a search on queer forum returns CraigsList 97 times out of the top 100 results. That is not all, a search on wedding forum returns about 50 of 100 results from CraigsList’s site, just scroll down to number 50 and you will see.

Is CraigsList spamming? No! Is Google suffering? 🙂 Google is clearly having issues with sub sub domains. Continued coverage of Google’s public index issues.

Postscript From Danny: Comments at Threadwatch also note Yahoo has the same issue. MSN does not as badly (but that could be the result of spidering fewer pages) and Ask looks very good.
