Google has been cracking down on link networks like never before in recent months. That continues with a couple more announcements from head of webspam Matt Cutts.

In January, Cutts said Google was taking action on French link network Buzzea. He also noted that Germany was on the list of places Google was looking at. Then, in February, Google put out its German blog post warning about paid links.

Later in February, Cutts told told Twitter followers that Google was not done with Germany, and also that it had just taken action on two Polish link networks.

On Monday, Cutts tweeted about the latest areas of focus:

Cutts has not always been shy about calling out specific link networks, though this time (and others) he did not name names. At least not yet.
