A Spammy Website is one that has been marked as spam by Google or is using techniques that lend you to believe it should be marked as spam. Spammy websites use forbidden or frowned-upon tactics or marginal techniques and are often associated with scammers or untrustworthy entities.

Some examples of what can make a website spammy:

  • Duplicate content
  • Bait-and-switch techniques
  • Keyword stuffing
  • Gibberish content
  • Scraped content
  • Link farms or paid links schemes
