  • Googlers manually review Google Spam & Paid Links Reports

    Yes, this is true. John Mueller replied to a question on Twitter saying that Googlers manually review all Google Spam and Paid Link Reports. The paid link report tool says "Google uses a number of methods to detect paid links, including algorithmic techniques. We also welcome information from our users. If you know of a site that buys or sells links, please tell us by filling out the fields below. We'll investigate your submissions, and we'll use your data to improve our algorithmic detection of paid links." So, it is not necessary that when a paid link report is submitted, the reported website will be vanished within 24 hours. However, Google says that more than 65% of the spam reports are acted upon immediately.

    I am surprised Priya. I always thought there was perhaps a threshold for the number of times a site is reported that must be met before getting it reviewed manually by Googlers.

      I agree with you Ranson. So, Google not only relies on its algorithms but manually takes care of such sites. This is something great as they want to minimize all the spams and links that spread spam. So, spammers should be aware of this and stop doing spamming.

        You have rightly pointed it out Priya. Thus, when Googlers take manual action on a website, they try to alert the site's owner to help them address issues. Google wants website owners to have the information they require to get their sites in shape. Thatís why, over time, Google has invested significant resources in webmaster communication and outreach.

          True that David. Google being a leader in the field of technology, investing significant resources in webmaster communication and outreach was a good move taken by Google. The main motive of Google is to keep tech environment safe and secure wherein people don't have to give a thought of doubt while introducing something new. And Googlers checking spam and paid links reports manually very will depicts that they are putting in concentrated efforts to achieve their motive.

            Exactly Priya. Some manual actions may not considerably impact the website's organic search traffic and rankings overall. They may only affect pages that the webmaster longer cares about or pages that do not create revenue. At times instead of struggling with the manual action, it may be worth deleting the page(s) in question.

              True Zenita. Such websites will have an impact from SEO perspective as well. Of course, Google's rules and regulations about SEO is very well defined and it has to be followed in order to achieve a higher position in search results. Such websites will not be ranked higher due to its spamy nature and will have to face repercussions for the same.

                After webmasters know that their website has come under the manually scanner the webmaster in contention has to make the necessary changes and once the site is in tandem with the Google guidelines the webmaster can request a site review from the manual action report.
