german-agencyLast night, the spam czar of Google, Matt Cutts tweeted the expected, that they penalized a German link network.

This time, Cutts did not call out which network, instead he said Google went after a Germany agency and their clients over their link network. Which agency? Again, he did not specifically say - which is pretty common.

There are obviously rumors which agency Google targeted but I don't want to speculate without stronger evidence.

Here is Matt's tweet from late last night:

We did expect Google to go after German link spam. Google sent a warning earlier this week and when they penalized a French link network a little over a week ago, Cutts said Germany was next.

Now, Matt said that this Germany agency and their clients is not the end of it. Matt added to his tweet last night that there is "more to come in Germany."

Here are some recent link networks taken down by Google:
