Web Spam Archive Tool Saves Google’s Live Spam For More Than Just Recent Results
One of the more interesting aspects of Google’s recently released “How Search Works” interactive infographic were the live examples of spam that were recently removed. The features allows users to see live spam that was recently removed (once they clicked through the disclaimer that offensive material may be included.)
Just 4 days later our own RustyBrick (the company of our very own Barry Schwartz) has released a Web Spam Archive Replay tool that aggregates and saves the spam examples. Google appears to only provide 48 examples at a time, but this tool allows users to flip through more than 2222 examples.
Additionally the Web Spam Archive Replay Tool tool shows the URL marked as spam, the page title, the description snippet and the time removed. RustyBrick’s tool is a free source for those that get their kicks seeing what Google kicks out of it’s index.
Update: Users can also do a search to see if their website has ever showed up in the Google Live Spam Results with the search tool:
