How Does Google Define Spam?

The Google Webmaster Guidelines specifically state that the following techniques may lead them to remove your site from the Google index:

  • Hidden text or hidden links.
  • Cloaking or sneaky redirects.
  • Automated queries to Google.
  • Pages loaded with irrelevant keywords.
  • Multiple pages, subdomains / domains with substantially duplicate content.
  • "Doorway" pages created just for search engines, or other "cookie cutter“ approaches such as affiliate programs with little or no original content.
