A Search Engine To Search For Sites Manually Penalized By Google

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:
