Do You Report Search Spammers To Google?

SpamJust over three years ago, we polled you asking do you report competitors via spam reports to Google? And the results were that most do not report spam to Google.

But that was a different time. Three years later, I'd be surprised to see 70% of our industry claim to not report competitors for spamming Google's index in order to benefit their own sites.

Since Matt McGee created a discussion on this topic at Sphinn asking that question, I'd figure we run the poll again.

Do you report search spammers, including competitors, to Google's spam report?
