Google Release new Spam reporting facility

Google have really started pushing the boat out today. Hot on the heels of their force page re-index , service they have launched the biggest shake up in manual snitching on your mates… oops I mean Spam reporting that we have seen pretty much since Google kicked off.

The new spam reporting page allows and encourages you to specifically report

Paid links

Objectionable content (good luck on that one google)

Malware

pages that abuse Google products (breaching T&C)

Disclosing personal/private info

Phishing

Something else.

MOST IMPORTANTLY In My mind, Copyright and other legal issues.

Seems like Google really have listened and realised that they need to start delivering some sort of customer service thing. which for me is the one MAJOR LEAGUE element that has been missing.

  1. It’s about time Google clamped down on Copyright infringement, taking into account the amount of time people can spend creating their own content, images, etc.

    Hopefully other search engines, especially Yahoo and Bing will follow suit!

    I for one will be snitching on every one of my mate!(joke)

    Thanks
