Matt Cutts: We just started a new ranking update today for some spammy queries. See 2:30-3:10 of this video: [goo.gl...] #smx
Google has officially launched a new search update to target “spammy queries” such as payday loan, #*$!ographic and other heavily spammed queries.
Matt Cutts, Google’s head of search spam, announced this on Twitter saying “We just started a new ranking update today for some spammy queries.” He pointed to the video he published where he talked about upcoming Google SEO changes.
Our summary then was:
While queries that tend to be spammy in nature, such as [pay day loans] or some #*$!ographic related queries, were somewhat less likely to be a target for Google’s search spam team – Matt Cutts said Google is more likely to look at this area in the near future. He made it sound like these requests are coming from outside of Google and thus Google wants to address those concerns with these types of queries.

So is this Google's Altavista moment? It really highlights the utter futility of Panda, Penguin and the rest of Animal Farm. The sad thing is that the solution is so simple.
Bing? - not in a million years. Their index is a fraction of Google's, they haven't got a chance.
Maybe Google's index is bigger because it includes a lot of spam and worthless garbage that Bing screens out.
ok, then, why do you think Google is by far Nr 1? Just "because"?
Bing's pond does not.
OK so the Matt Cutts payday loan link is gone to be replaced with another payday loan link on blog.co.uk and at position 2 there is a tripod.co.uk link.
