Google continues to penalize link networks in Europe, hitting two more over the weekend.

Google has been on a warpath for the last year or so, penalizing link networks designed to game search results. Google now now hit one in Spain and one in Germany.

Typically, Google's Matt Cutts would make mention of the networks on Twitter, but he's currently on leave from work, and probably has better things to do. Johannes Mehlem tweeted about it in his absence:

As others have pointed out, Germany is obviously part of Europe, so that would be two European networks. According to RustyBrick, Google sent a bunch of manual penalty emails in Spain.

Last month, Google said it took action on networks in Poland, which the company said it was focusing on all the way back in February. Since then, it went after various other networks in Europe as well as Japan.
