Matt Cutts: Google Penalizes Seven Link Networks In Japan

Apr 8, 2014 • 8:36 am | comments (17) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google Search Engine Optimization

Google JapanGoogle's Matt Cutts announced on Twitter at 2:30am this morning that over the past few months, Google has taken action on seven link networks in Japan.

Matt said, "over last few months they've taken action on seven link networks!" He said this makes him "incredibly proud" because this levels the playing field in Japan.

Here is Matt's tweet:

There is no specific date as to when these link networks were targeted and penalized, so it would be hard to tell if your site was impacted by this or an algorithm. That being said, most of my readers here likely do not try to rank for Japanese related content (except a few maybe).

So let's see who Google targeted over links in the past few months:

matt cutts must penalize his own hands for spamming (and stupid) actions and for destroying previously best search engine.

According to Fortune, "a good deal" of Facebook's $7.9 billion in 2013 revenue came from small and medium-sized businesses, though as it notes, the company doesn't break out the percentage coming from such advertisers, so that's obviously speculation. Now Google knows where small businesses its lost are going - B Bye, don't let the cyber door slam ya in the rear Google

Google Vs Spammers ---> Never Ending Story

No "spammers" means "No Matt". :-) He risks to be fired if all the spammers eradicate :-)

Like "No crime" means "No police". Crime will never stop. Spamming will never stop. The police and Matt's jobs are safe until we live in a Utpoian Brave New World.
