    there are billions of websites on the web, and i can't imagine that getting a manual review is a high probability occurrence.

    does it usually happen to bigger sites with a large backlink profile? or can it happen to new sites with few backlinks also?

    Your chances of getting a manual review are slim.

    Any website can get a manual review.

    If your site is artificially ranking and it shouldn't and the algorithms aren't taking care of the problem, then you get manual action. If you're not ranking anyway because the algorithms are taking care of it, then you won't get manual action.

    I cant believe that gspam team are looking all the time at all the niches. its fng impossible.
    yeah, they probablay monitor the big keywords, but smaller ones? hardly.
    yeah they go after networks but who cares? nobody on this forum has any website network nor are we gaming any search engine algorithm.

    <-me. a few years ago when lots of am sites went down. Now I won't touch GA/Webmaster etc. Also hide as much as you can and change your hosting. Goodbye my affiliate empire!
