In an intriguing and informative interview with Google's search evangelist Adam Lasnik, Lee Odden finds out about Adam's responsibilities at the company and information about several aspects:
- Duplicate content issues and penalties.
- Using the nofollow for a PageRank.
- How are international sites best handled in Google?
In an earlier interview with Adam, on being asked about how he became a Google employee, he had replied, "I've been a fan of Google for quite some time, even writing up a 'how to Google' tips article in early 2000 for a former employer's internal newsletterÃ¢â‚¬Â¦. As a happy coincidence, Matt and the Search Quality group had been increasingly interested in extending these sorts of conversations as well, and so you might say we sort of found each other." Moreover, Adam has been outspoken about expressing displeasure with the nofollow, see: Google's Lasnik Unhappy With NoFollow Existence. And we have also heard him speak about Paid Links, see: Google's Adam Lasnik Knocks on Paid Links and at several conferences as well.
