(13) weeks ago, I submitted (4) extremely bad taste splogs that had ripped our members content to Google’s Blogger/Blogspot abuse reporter tool.
What I wanted to find out, was how long does it take their quality assurance team to act on reports of blatant sploggers of the worse kind…so bad that the URL of the blogspot itself was offensive enough to make a reject decision. The answer = 13 weeks.
I suspect we’ll see a faster response from them in the future. The (4) sploggers that I was reporting for abuse in my control group for this informal study did not monetize their activities with AdSense. If they did, I feel very confident that Google would have acted on dumping them in a day or two at most.
Moral of the story: You can feel a little more confident that the above Blogger/Blogspot abuse reporting tool is getting acted on by the quality assurance team at Google.
