Google Updates Spam Reporting Page

Last night, Matt Cutts from Google tweeted they have “released the biggest refresh of our spam report form in, oh, say 10 years.”

they break it down by type of “spam”:

Paid links – This page is selling or buying links.
Copyright and other legal issues – This page should be removed under applicable law.
Objectionable content – This page is inappropriate.
Personal/private – This page discloses private information.
Malware – This page is infected.
Phishing – This page is trying to get sensitive information.
Other Google products – This page abuses Google products other than Search, e.g., AdSense, Google Maps, etc.
Something else is wrong This page has other, non-webspam related issues.

Plus they have a button at the bottom that reads, “This page is really webspam. Report Spam.”
