Reporting the Garbage Generators

Threaded View
Was contacted by someone claiming to get top rankings in Google, Yahoo,
and MSN. Unlike most of these clowns, this outfit created sophisticated
pages that simulate content with keyword packing and lots of
cross-linking. Engines seem to do a good job of catching and
downranking bogus sites with NO REAL CONTENT, but how does the user
community assist in reporting them?

As example, the folks at run 3 sites,, You search for Estero (or
some city name) Real Estate and get a page with someone's picture and
links to their site surrounded by a bunch of computer-generated garbage
with city keywords sprinkled in the text. Every customer site is the
same garbage and not real content.

How will search engines start adjusting for boiler-plate content that
spoofs them into high rankings? There are more of these charletans
every day.

How do we assist them in identifying those sites?

It's why God gave us spam reports.

You can report all of them as spam in one go...

This ensures or at least motivates someone (not a crawler) to have a look and
judge the site from a human perspective. Remain succinct and punctual. Give
pointers to the vilest violations.
