If you see this message on the Manual Actions page, it means that Google has detected user-generated spam on your site. Typically, this kind of spam is found on forum pages, guestbook pages, or in user profiles.
As a result, Google has applied a manual spam action to the affected portions of your site. Actions that affect your whole site are listed under Site-wide matches. Actions that affect only part of your site and/or some incoming links to your site are listed under Partial matches.
First, review Google’s Webmaster Guidelines on user-generated spam.
Next, follow the steps below to identify and correct the violation(s) on your site:
- Identify areas of your site where users can add content, such as forums, user profiles or blog comments.
- Check these areas for the following:
- Posts or profiles that look like advertisements
- Posts or profiles with out-of-context or off-topic links
- Posts or profiles with commercial usernames — names like “Discount Insurance,” that don’t sound like real human names — that link to unrelated sites
- Posts or profiles that appear to be automatically generated, not written by a real user of your site
- Remove any content that meets this description.
- Consider implementing measures to prevent user-generated spam.
Once you’re sure your site is no longer in violation of our guidelines, request reconsideration of your site. After you’ve submitted a reconsideration request, be patient and watch for a message in your Webmaster Tools account — we’ll let you know when we’ve reviewed your site. If we determine your site is no longer in violation of our guidelines, we’ll revoke the manual action.
