  abstract =     "Link spam refers to unfairly gaining a high ranking on
                 search engines for a web page by means of trickily
                 manipulating the link graph to confuse the hyper-link
                 structure analysis algorithms. It seriously affects the
                 quality of the search engine query results. Detecting
                 link spam has become a big challenge for web search.
                 This paper proposes to learn a discriminant function to
                 detect link spam by genetic programming. In this
                 article, the representation of individuals, the genetic
                 operators and the fitness function are studied. The
                 experiments on WEBSPAM-UK2006 are carried out to find
                 the preferable parameters and evaluate the validity of
                 genetic programming. The experimental results show that
                 this method can improve spam classification recall by
                 27.5percent, F-measure by 12.1percent and accuracy by
                 4.6percent compared with SVM.",
