How Google Handles Hacked Sites

If you’ve never read my blog before, welcome. I’m the head of the webspam team at Google. And I have a blog for days just like this.

Okay, first off you should go read this post. It’s entitled “Me Against Google” and the author is unhappy that was nowhere to be found in Google for the last 5-6 days. After that post, go read this Slashdot post, entitled “Google De-indexes Talk.Origins, Won’t Say Why.” By the time you’re done, your pulse should be pounding. Hell, you should be angry. Damn that evil Google for not communicating with webmasters!! Or as Wesley put it in his blog:

You might think that a company that prides itself upon advanced textual analysis and automated decision-making algorithms might provide helpful warning messages to webmasters concerning problems found in their sites. You would be wrong.

Okay, ready for my side of the story?
