Google’s Matt Cutts: Spammers Rarely Spam Using Multiple ccTLDs

google-web-spamIn a recent video answer by Google’s head of search spam, Matt Cutts, Google said that spammers rarely use multiple or mass number of ccTLDs in an effort to spam.

This comment came from Matt Cutts when he answered a question on if it is duplicate content to have the same content on an IPv4 and IPv6 web sites. Matt said this is not a spam or duplicate content issue.

Matt said it is like to having similar content on multiple country domain names and thus this is okay.

Google’s head of search spam then added that even spammers aren’t likely to use multiple country domain names in an effort to spam. So there is no need to worry that having your content on IPv4 and IPv6 web sites will cause an issue for you.

Cutts said this around 45 seconds in to the video:
