Calling for link spam reports
First line is interesting
"Google has been working on some new (bolded for those who always claim theres nothing new) algorithms and tools to tackle linkspam"
Knew some of this was coming since they kept saying that Caffeine was just an upgrade so they could do somethings going forward
Second line is not so nice either
"If you'd like to tell us about web sites that appear to be using spammy links"
and gives the links to report. Not new to be able to report sites for link spam but never a good thing when Google starts asking competitors to report sites - especially a competitor in the niche you just ranked a site for with 10,000 links you know Google sees as spam..
There is also this
That goes into some "abuses" that Google is looking at
Sooo discuss. What do you think this means for the future of backlinking and in particular automated linkbuilding which tends to leave a larger footprint for people to identify as spam?
