Google Creates Chrome Extension To Report Search Spam

Oct 28, 2010 - 7:53 am 3 by

Google loves when webmasters and SEOs report search/web spam to them. Although 70% of SEOs won't report spam to Google, there is still a huge number of people who would. To make it easier for those spam reporters, Google has created a Chrome Extension named the Google Webspam Report.

I don't know for sure who made the extension at Google, but maybe it was Matt? Maybe?

There is a Google presentation on how it works, which I will embed below. The extension has:

  • Adds links to search result and web history pages to report spam quickly.
  • Prepopulates the spam report form where possible.
  • Select a spam url from your Chrome history.
  • Cycle through your recent Google searches to fill fields of the spam report page.
  • Options page to enable/disable features individually.
