Google Penguin Update: Google Has Read, Processed Almost All Spam Reports

By: Chris Crum - May 3, 2012

Google’s Matt Cutts recently tweeted that people should fill out a form to report post-Penguin spam. “We’re reading feedback,” he said.

To report post-Penguin spam, fill out and add “penguin” in the details. We’re reading feedback. 5 days ago via web ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

Cutts indicated in a Twitter conversation today, that Google has read and processed almost all of the Penguin spam reports:

@mattcutts Do you guys really actually read the #Google #Spam reports tagged with #Penguin you asked to be filed or were you just saying it? 6 hours ago via web ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

@Penguin_Spam yup yup, we’ve read/processed almost all of them. A few recent ones left. 10 minutes ago via web ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

On the other side of the equation, if you were hit by the Penguin update, and think this may have been an error, Google has a form for that too.

In other news, there’s a Twitter account for Penguin spam.

    Did anyone use the feedback form to report their wrongly hit website? did anyone get a reply from Google after submitting the penguin feedback form? did anyone recover from the penguin update after filing it?

    I’ve sent the form but I doubt they will even read it let alone replying!
