We compare a wide range of semi-supervised learning techniques both for Web spam filtering and for telephone user churn classification. Semisupervised learning has the assumption that the label of a node in a graph is similar to those of its neighbors. In this paper we measure this phenomenon both for Web spam and telco churn. We conclude that spam is often linked to spam while honest pages are linked to honest ones; similarly churn occurs in bursts in groups of a social network.
