Google revised guidance to state spam notifications are not for manual acts

Google simply uses spam notifications to boost its spam protection algorithms.

Gary Illyes (Google Webmaster Trends Analyst) of Google declared on the Google webmaster blog on July 3, 2020 morning at 09:25 AM that it needed to explain that spam notifications are intended to boost Google ‘s spam identification algorithms. Google eliminated all discussion of manual activity in the Google webmaster policy and claim such spam notifications would not contribute to a Google employee inspecting a domain and actively penalizing it.


  • Spam protection automation:


The downside is that once you send a spam report, Google just utilizes this spam report to find out if the search engines might be enhanced. You do not see a page that you mentioned falling off immediately due to a spam message in the Google search results. Google can upgrade their algorithms using this information but not penalize any specific site manually.


  • Manual activity:


Manual acts are fines that can be levied by Google staff on specific blogs or websites if the platform infringes Google’s webmasters. This behaviour is seen in the Google Search Console whenever you request a manual response. Again, no manual intervention is taken on Google Spam files.


  • These are the instructions until this update:


“When you suspect that a website breaches Google’s coherence requirements, please tell us by submitting a spam report. As we seek to eliminate hand to hand spam prevention, Google wants to create flexible and automatic approaches to problems! While we cannot manually respond to each message, the prioritization of spam notifications is focused on consumer effects and contributed to the full elimination of a spam site from the searcher results of Google in some situations. Nevertheless, not all manual acts contributed to deletion. The consequences of such actions cannot be apparent, except though we operate on a published web.


  • Currently, after this modification, the guidelines say:


“When you suspect that a website breaches Google’s coherence requirements, please tell us by submitting a spam report. Google aims to build flexible and integrated problem solutions and uses this study to develop our spam filtering systems.


Google’s Gary Illyes stated: “Spam alerts play a substantial role in allowing us to appreciate the shortage of awareness of our automatic spam identification systems. Many of the case it has far more impact than taking manual action on a particular URL or link because we correct the underlying problem through our automated sensing devices”.


Google makes it plain that you do not take direct intervention or administrative action affiliated with the domain you are monitoring while filing spam complaints. Google may take time to refine the algorithms and to demonstrate the influence on the Web search results of such algorithms.
