A Search Engine To Search For Sites Manually Penalized By Google

Mar 6, 2013 • 8:50 am | comments (7) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Search & Web SEO Spam

RustyBrick IconRemember your favorite part of the Google how search works portal? Yea, how you can see examples of pages Google removed from their index manually on the fighting spam page.

Well, Google shows about 50 results on that page and updates it every hour. I thought, wouldn't it be nice to archive all of those examples, this way we have a collection of pages Google manually delisted from their index. I know, it is not a complete example, not by far, but these are examples and over time, the data will grow and grow.

I launched it yesterday at rustybrick.com/google-spam-results.php.

It includes:

  • Search for any domain name for a match
  • Browse the complete archive (currently up to over 3,000 pages
  • Browse the monthly archive

We will probably add more functionality but hey, this is a good start, until Google blocks us.

Here are screen shots:

Feel free to play with it at RustyBrick.

This is a great tool, thanks so much. Do you have any word whether there has been an algorithm change? A couple of my sites suddenly disappeared about 8 hours ago

While searching it is given the message "No! We do not have any records of pages from abc.com(Note: abc.com is an example) being removed from Google's index. *". Please let me know the reason.

I had the same idea when i first saw the new G tool. It would be GREAT if you could add KEYWORD search capabilities to the list so people can look for sites in a specific niche or by keyword.
