Matt shows how a hacked site was identified, dropped and re-included. Interesting stuff.
It is impressive that Google can do all that so quickly.
“Could Google do a better job? Absolutely, and weâ€™ll keep working on it. For example, maybe we can show a more specific message for hacked sites in the webmaster console“
Notice also Matts deft touch associating bad SEOs with hackers:
“If you pick a bad search engine optimizer (SEO) and they make a ton of spammy doorway pages on your domain, Google still needs to take action. Hacked sites are no different: lots of spammy/hacked sites will try to install malware on usersâ€™ computers. If your site is hacked and turns spammy, Google may need to remove your site“
It should also be noted that if you pick a bad whitehat SEO, and there are plenty of those, they’ll charge you money for achieving nothing.
A good SEO, on the other hand….
It’s all about results…
