Google Webmaster Notifications Now To Show Example URLs
Google’s head of search spam, Matt Cutts, announced at SMX Advanced that starting in the next day or so, Google Webmaster Tools notifications will now include example URLs of problem areas.
For example, if you receive a manual penalty for unnatural links, Google will provide a few sample URLS. If you have other manual penalties, Google will show examples of where the penalties are or derived from.
Starting in the next day or so, future Webmaster Tools notifications will contain examples URLs.
Update: Here is a video from Matt Cutts on this news:
