Just tried it too, and went right through.
Many Thanks (especially for coming to WebmasterWorld in your spare time).
Yes, we must fight spam (in all of its forms) but Google also needs to make money and cover the costs of people actioning spam reports.
The spammer in question is so lame - they fill their Meta tags up with web log data. Long lists of peoples IPs and the search query used to find them.
Repeating irrelevant groups of links everywhere….
Extreme Spam. Nothing from google – no action.
I LOVE GOOGLE! I just wish they would get more manpower on eliminating these jerks that screw the hard working webmasters out of valid rankings.
Man, if google could just put more effort into eliminating spammers.
I am starting to wonder if they don’t care about spamming on lower traffic (niche) keywords. Perhaps there so backlogged with spam reports, they prioritize the hardcore ones first, and may not ever get to the smaller keywords..
Love this forum!
Best Wishes to all,

What you think is spam and what Google actually considers spam, are two dozen different things. It's been my experience reading here, that 90% of all spam reports are not actually problems to/for google.

However, Google doesn't go out and eliminate spam on a one on one basis. Rather, it tweaks it's algo to eliminate any similar instance from occurring again.
