A few of you could know that within the early days of Google, Google’s co-founders, Sergey Brin and Larry Web page would say Google Search was immune to go looking spam.

It was a critical panel speaking about what serps had been doing to fight spam and he rolled it in laid-on skates and he acquired up there and mainly stated we do not actually fear about spam as a result of our algorithm is so good that it isn’t a problem for us mainly.” “However mainly he threw out a problem to lots of people who stated okay cool,” Greg went on to say. It was at that time that he thinks SEOs put extra consideration to Google Search to show some extent.
