Google Adds Webspam Reporting Tool To Chrome

Makes reporting webspam a breeze:

* Adds links to search result and web history pages to report spam quickly.
* Prepopulates the spam report form where possible.
* Select a spam url from your Chrome history.
* Cycle through your recent Google searches to fill fields of the spam report page.
* Options page to enable/disable features individually.

I've never been one for reporting webspam. I have better things to do with my time and I basically consider spam catching to be Google's job, not mine.

However, if Google can get a bigger volume of spam reports - and if the data is not too noisy - then just maybe they can take quicker action. I especially hope they can nail those automated "freshness" spammers more quickly.

i hope this helps them but me thinks this will turn into another avenue for certain webmasters to attack the competition which will churn up the noise level.

IMO, sooner or later they would introduce permanent Like/Dislike buttons in Chrome and Google Toolbar. Why shouldn't they? and why haven't they already?

and this is assuming they do something about these spam reports - after all they never have done in the past so whats changed ? nothing - waste of time

they do use the spam reports for large scale analysis to identify general issues. that data helps then helps them make changes to the algo(s).
