Google Came Up With A Targeting Webspam Tool In Search Results
Company posted posts on the Inside Search and Google Webmaster Central blogs:
In the next few days, we’re launching a crucial algorithm change targeted at webspam. The alter will reduce positions for sites that we believe are breaking Google’s quality guidelines. This algorithm represents another step in our efforts to reduce webspam and promote high quality content.
Fighting Web Spam
We are also confused about what’s “Webspam”. As Google calls it, or search spam? Pages that try increase position via things like:
- Keyword stuffing
- Link schemes
- Cloaking, “sneaky” redirects or “doorway” pages
- Purposeful duplicate content
May be is this update the reason behind position downfall that various reported last week. Google has already said the cause of that was due to a trouble with a parked domains classifier and reconfirms that today’s fresh spam fighting algorithm update was not part of last week’s changes.
Google says the fresh update will hit about 3.1% of queries in English; 3% in German, Chinese and Arabic. The percentage might be bigger for languages where spam has been sliding through even more, such as in Polish, where 5% of queries are expected to vary.
