Manual Spam Action- What It Means
The introduction of the manual spam action by Google a few days back is a straight pointer to the fact that Google’s constant communications with Webmasters guiding them on various factors affecting their site performance, is in no way dying down soon. Earlier Google used to notify the site owner about any spam action thus taken by leaving declaration on the Webmaster Tool’s account. Now, the Manual Spam Action Tool supplements a real time tool that is adept at conducting a live check against Google’s internal web spam system.
Now for a marketing system of an organization to work duly towards delivering desired results, it is important to understand what Manual Spam Action is all about in its entirety. Google generally applies two ways to identify spammy content- one by its algorithmic tool and another by its manual tool. The second one implies that websites have been searched manually by Google’s human team and those which have been regarded as spam or having poor content quality- have been penalized.
Penalization can take place either in parts or in total completion- meaning that the website can be either penalized in some portions (some pages here) or else in its entirety. Google Manual Spam affects organic search results in a major way. The severity of the action taken against a site will go on to decide the measure of penalization for the site.
While the lack of transparency on these kinds of actions had left business owners reeling earlier, today with the introduction of manual spam action Google is clearly spelling out whether the site has been penalized in its entirety or not and which pages of the website have been affected. Those who already been penalized will get to see a thousand other such pages in order to gain a general understanding as to why it has been thus penalized.
