    What niches are the most prone for manual reviews? Does Google do manual reviews on PPD+cheats/hack/keygen niches? Because those niches are all fake and non would rank then?

    Also, if a manual review is done to your site, will they look at your backlinks or just your onpage content etc?

    Probably anything to do with the recent spam queries updates like for example viagra, gambling ,payday loans etc.

    They probably look at backlinks and seo content unless it's a really lazy employee.

    Payday loans and insurance. May be also pharma but judging by the looks of ranking it is a big fight against windmill.

    For Google it's extremely simple to see which niches are starting to go crazy with Spam by following the footprints from the most popular SEO Tools. For example GSA has some chinese footprints which will appear with high % in the backlink profile of a website if the owner doesn't understand how to remove it.

    Once Google will run one test to see what websites are having that footprint, they can easily gather the anchor text and see exactly which are the trends.

    Regarding Pharma, they will always fight against it, but the reason why they face a windmill is the high profits margin from the industry which allow the big guys to create 2,3,4 almost instant alternatives once one website gets hit.
