Google’s Matt Cutts Talks Auto-Generated Pages

This is a good video to watch.

Google takes action on pages that are auto-generated, and add no value. You probably know that. Google talks about this kind of content in its Quality Guidelines. But that hasn’t stopped Matt Cutts from discussing it further in a new Webmaster Help Video in response to the user-submitted question:

Here is the video if you don't want to visit the blog to watch it.

I've landed on plenty of those kind of pages that Mr. Cutts talks about in the video, ending up on a page with "0 results" or "0 reviews" and completely overrun with ads.

Mr. Cutts is right, as an end user it is annoying and frustrating.

Though I really don't see why people need to do that auto-generated stuff in the first place?

This is a really good topic considering how many times I see search results pop up in the top 3 spots for keywords that go to search result pages on walmart, target and home depot that have 0 results returned.

Should I start reporting those pages as spam?

If Google did 10% of what Matt Cutts said, they would be easier to work with.

That's a provocative idea. I would love to hear an example or two and understand more specifically what you mean.
