Google’s CEO, Eric Schmidt has sparked controversy by claiming that the Internet is fast becoming a “cesspool” of information according to an article published yesterday in Adage.
There is no doubt that the Internet is indeed awash with junk; many of these pages no doubt being served up for no other reason than to allow the Webmaster to make money by selling third party advertising.
