Google High-Quality Sites Algorithm Launched in Additional Languages

Originally posted on the Google Webmaster Central Blog 

Google, of late, has been placing an emphasis on returning more high-quality sites to users. Initially, this was a change for searches in English, but Google recently announced they’re including their search improvements for different languages. With an increase in internet use from non-English speakers in recent years, this effort by Google makes sense.

I wrote previously about Google’s internationalization efforts, and this just goes as further evidence that Google is taking its global initiatives seriously. Features previously available only in the US are becoming more and more available to international users, which is a good thing.

Google also noted that they are waiting to launch the high-quality search algorithm in Chinese, Japanese and Korean, where they continue to run tests on their improvements.

Things change fast. This Google Webmaster video was posted just days prior to the international release…
