Google Now Targeting Italian & Spanish Link Spammers

google-flyswatter-penalty-600Less than a month after Google targeted Polish link spammers and German link spammers, Google’s head of search spam, Matt Cutts announced that the company is targeting more countries.

Cutts announced warnings to Spanish and Italian webmasters and SEOs not to use unnatural links to promote their sites.

He posted both announcements on Twitter and the localized Google Webmaster Blogs. Here is the Spanish warning on Twitter and it links to the Spanish webmaster blog at Google.

 

Here is the Italian warning on Twitter that links to a translation in Italian of those same guidelines.

 

Recently, Matt Cutts and Google went after two Polish link networks and a German link agency. As you can see, Google continues to target unnatural links both in the US and is stepping it up big time globally.
