    Hiya

    Basically I was wondering what are the things that set the spam flag in the Google's algo that they decide to manually remove a website.

    I know a few that are definitely there, like

    1 - Over optimized anchor text
    2 - Thousands of crappy pages linking to a website

    I would like to know a few more that you have found to be true. Its quite interesting for me since if you look at something that has gone viral, it will also be linked by thousands of 'crappy' websites. So I guess G would rely on a manual review here (?)

    thanks.

    One thing - they don't waste their time to do manual actions for all the niches - the only do in niches which actually makes profit for them - they penalize sites = destroying business = less customers = they will use adwords = increase in profit of google.

    That is my suspicion as well, if you rank well in tough category, especially if you are not using Google ads you at more risk to get manual review or even manually imposed penalty from google.
