Cyber criminals to attack Google
In recent months, cyber criminals have used all optimization techniques contrary to Google's guidelines (Black hat SEO) to manipulate search engine results.

Once the changes made, users should no longer see “as often this type of spam«.

Google noted that many phrases mentioned in the report were quite rare queries. An expression like "1989 Nissan Pickup Truck Check Engine Light Troubleshooting," for example, appears only on sites created by malicious spammers.
