    Google takes a good decision against spammers

  • PrIyAnGsHu October 20, 2012, 11:21 pm

    That’s the tool we all have been waiting for. Anyone could before build spam links to our site and get it kicked off from the search engines after that. But now time had come to remove all those spam links and kill the spammers :).

    It is a very good news to learn about that Google is now creating a tool that can help you remove spam links in your websites. It will be of great advantage as it will lessen the growing numbers of spammers that are ranking on most search engines.

    The disavow links tool that removes spam links is a great idea because not every blog owner can control each and every link that points to their blogs and other sites. I haven’t checked it out yet, but I sure will in the next few days. Thanks for the heads up!

    Hi,

    Glad to know that finally google has released a new thing which could be magic for those whose sites are affected by recent penguin update.

    thanks

    After the Google Algorithms, many bloggers can’t sleep. Making money from blogs is not an easy task anymore. You have to be very careful at each and every step! This tool is good for those who are penalized due to Penguin.
    Thanks.
