Google update removes sketchy sites in searches in Japanese
An announcement posted on Google Japan's official blog for webmasters explained that the change would affect, “Low quality websites, whose main aims are to raise themselves in the order of a search result.” It said those websites would drop in the ranking with the new update.
It is the first time since October 2012 that Google Japan has made an announcement on a change to its Japanese interface individually.
