We address the problem of large-scale auto- matic detection of online reviews without us- ing any human labels. We propose an efficient method that combines two basic ideas: Build- ing a classifier from a large number of noisy examples and using the structure of the web- site to enhance the performance of this classi- fier. Experiments suggest that our method is competitive against supervised learning meth- ods that mandate expensive human effort.
