Earlier this week, Google’s Matt Cutts ran down a bunch of new stuff Google’s web spam team is working on. Cutts tweeted an extension of that today, noting that Google will continue to tackle link networks, and that in fact, they just took action on “several thousand linksellers” today.

Let the good times roll.

Webmasters continue to anxiously await an upcoming, bigger version of the Penguin update, and Cutts also indicated that Panda would be easing up a bit.

As part of Cutts’ big video, he said Google would continue to be vigilant when it comes to all types of link spam. Already, the webspam team is making good on its word.

    I guess g needs more free r&d…now they sit back and take note of all the changes we make to our sites and they get free keyword research to see the beast keywords to sell and give us “Keyword not defined”.

    At this point it would be easier to get bing and yahoo more users than trying to slave for free to make g happy for a few months!

    I have a question to those who know: I run a design+development company that made HUNDREDS of sites. the sites have a footer with our company name and a link, which users may take off if they want to, but at least 50% of them leave it as a courtesy, and I can see those links are alive if I visit their pages. However, if I check link backs, Google displays only 24 pages distributed in 4 different sites. Is this footer linking discouraged by Google?

    It would be nice if they told us which link networks were penalized.
