Google’s head of webspam tweeted early Tuesday morning that Google has taken action on seven Japanese link networks over the past few months.
He’s proud of the team:
Incredibly proud of Japanese webspam team. Over last few months they've taken action on seven link networks! Makes playing field more level.

This revelation follows other announcements made by Cutts in recent months, which have seen Google on the warpath with link networks, mostly in Europe. Last month, Cutts mentioned taking action on a couple of German networks.
Back in January, Google took action on French network Buzzea, which was followed by action against networks in Germany, Poland, and then warned Spanish and Italian networks.
In addition to all of this, of course, has been Google’s attack on guest blogging, with notable guest blog network MyBlogGuest getting famously penalized. .
