As for seeds, in this paper the seeds they refer to are only potential page candidates that are likely not to be spam (based on silly assumptions such as above) to kickstart an algorithm for spam detection based on propagation of "non-spaminess" measures.
Fascinating. If so, algo changes could be caused by differing selections of 'seed' pages.
