Brisbane: Today, search engines have become a part of people’s lives that they rely on them for all the information they need. Also, there are many businesses that depend totally on search engine to earn leads or it may be the only source of business and marketing.
This being the situation, the search results really need to be spam free. And Google has taken it seriously and has decided to remove all the websites that are hacked. Yes! Google has come up with a hack update that targets the hacked site aggressively and removes them from the search results.
According to Search Engine Land (a SEO news broadcasting website), Google has decided to target all the hacked sites and exclude them from the search results for the convenience and safety of the users across the globe.
According to the news published on the search engine land, Google says that it’s going to roll out a search algorithm to find out if there are any hack spams in the search results.
Google’s Hack Update
- Ning Song, a Software Engineer at Google wrote in a blog post that search monster Google is moving the dial ahead in its algorithms to remove sites that have been hacked from Google’s search results. It’s also been said that the algorithmic changes will eventually affect 5% of the queries based on the language.
- When Google rolls out the new algorithm, the users can notice that for certain queries, only the most relevant results will be shown in the search results filtering out the hacked ones. But why is the Hack Update necessary? It’s definitely a point to be thought on. Ning Song has an answer for this. He writes that the algorithm is to remove large amount of spam content from the search results while keeping just the legitimate ones. This can really be helpful for the users as they can get the legitimate information.
We all are aware that the websites which have been hacked are being troublesome for users in terms of safety and security. These days the cluster of hacked sites has raised a problem for the search giant Google itself.
In the beginning of 2015, an IT security firm called Sophos claimed that it had notified Google about ‘hundreds of thousands’ of high-ranking PDF docs on the hacked sites because of which Google started removing the hacked sites from the search results.
