Google Updated Quality Raters Guidelines Earlier This Month
Google has quietly updated the quality raters guidelines (PDF ) on May 11, 2017. No one seemed to notice but Glenn Gabe posted on Twitter that @ramesh_s_bisht noticed the update this morning. I did not look through to see what changed between May 11, 2017 and when they last updated it on March 14, 2017 . The March 14th update was mostly around how these raters should handle hateful, untrue and insulting content. This might just be a small update. Again, I have not yet read through the changes to compare. I suspect Jennifer Slegg will do a deep dive on the changes, if any - that is her thing. But nothing stands out to me as that big by scanning through the 157 page PDF document. You can read through it over here . If I spot anything new, I'll probably update this story - if it is a massive change, I'll do a new story.
