Today we've added a new notification to our search results that helps people know when a site may have been hacked. We've provided notices for malware for years, which also involve a separate warning page. Now we're expanding the search results notifications to help people avoid sites that may have been compromised and altered by a third party, typically for spam. When a user visits a site, we want her to be confident the information on that site comes from the original publisher.

Here's what the notification looks like:

This is a really good strategy from Google. I hope it works as expected. Some Black Hat SEO may try to use this too in their favor.

I wonder how long it will take for the bad guys to learn that their tricks will one day, not work.

I wonder how long it will take for some idiot to spam Wikipedia, making it appear as compromised.
I wonder how long it will take for that same idiot to do the same to other websites.
