Google has released the link spam update for December 2022. This is a global update that affects all languages. It is possible that the rollout will take up to two weeks to complete. When Google's automated systems for detecting search spam are constantly in operation, they eventually make significant improvements to how they work. When this happens, Google refers to it as a "spam update" and includes it on the list of Google Search ranking updates. Google's AI-based spam-prevention system is SpamBrain. Aside from directly detecting spam, SpamBrain can now detect both sites buying links and sites used to pass outgoing links. Google said. "Our launch today, which we refer to as the December 2022 link spam update, will take about two weeks to fully roll out. As spammy links are neutralized, any credit passed by these unnatural links is lost. This launch will affect all languages." If you notice a drop in Google rankings over the next two weeks, it could be due to this new link spam update. Make sure your links are natural and that you adhere to Google's webmaster guidelines. Improve your website to attract new links naturally over time.
