This is a list of things Google considers spammy (source):

Note:
That Google web page (source) sucks for finding the links on that page, some of the links (info. below) are images on the Google page, not very user friendly.






PURE SPAM
Site appears to use aggressive spam techniques such as automatically generated gibberish, cloaking, scraping content from other websites, and/or repeated or egregious violations of Google's Webmaster Guidelines.





HIDDEN TEXT AND/OR KEYWORD STUFFING
Some of the pages may contain hidden text and/or keyword stuffing.





USER-GENERATED SPAM
Site appears to contain spammy user-generated content. The problematic content may appear on forum pages, guestbook pages, or user profiles.






PARKED DOMAINS
Parked domains are placeholder sites with little unique content, so Google doesn't typically include them in search results.





THIN CONTENT WITH LITTLE OR NO ADDED VALUE
Site appears to consist of low-quality or shallow pages which do not provide users with much added value (such as thin affiliate pages, doorway pages, cookie-cutter sites, automatically generated content, or copied content).





UNNATURAL LINKS TO A SITE
Google has detected a pattern of unnatural artificial, deceptive or manipulative links pointing to the site. These may be the result of buying links that pass PageRank or participating in link schemes.





SPAMMY FREE HOSTS AND DYNAMIC DNS PROVIDERS
Site is hosted by a free hosting service or dynamic DNS provider that has a significant fraction of spammy content.





CLOAKING AND/OR SNEAKY REDIRECTS
Site appears to be cloaking (displaying different content to human users than is shown to search engines) or redirecting users to a different page than Google saw.





HACKED SITE
Some pages on this site may have been hacked by a third party to display spammy content or links. Website owners should take immediate action to clean their sites and fix any security vulnerabilities.





UNNATURAL LINKS FROM A SITE
Google detected a pattern of unnatural, artificial, deceptive or manipulative outbound links on this site. This may be the result of selling links that pass PageRank or participating in link schemes.

    This is funny. There are almost no views on this post that very clearly points out what people should NOT do and should NOT waste money on.

    ... and what do they do? View EVERY single post where people sell services and snake oil recipes that offer crappy links and stuff. Then they fall over each other to throw their money away on it.

    The classic one of telling a kid: "Don't touch the wall socket, you will get shocked!"... as soon as you turn your back that little finger goes closer and closer... and shock and horror... it actually results in them getting a shock!

    Now if someone was just nice enough to point out the obvious to them...
