Anyone else noticing the spam and scam .it domains and sub domains flooding the Google results pages?
(note, not just .it domains, but lots of them)

To see a typical example search for Wheelchair Ramps, go down to page 10+ and you start seeing them

Here is an example screenshot when I looked on page 12 (using google.co.uk searching from UK)

I'm not seeing this (not searching from the UK though), but you can always report spam sites or lousy SERPs by submitting feedback directly from the search result page submitting a spam report. To be honest, I wouldn't be TOO concerned with these because they are so far down in SERPs; however, it never hurts to at least report it to try and get it removed! :)

It's not really where they appear that bothers me, more that they are obviously scraping content from my sites (and many others).

I'm constantly seeing them in Google Alerts that I have set up to point now the alerts are just a waste of time.

Looking in to it more, it's not just .it domains, lots of .de and other domains too.
The common connection though is they all appear to be on sub domains.

Warning for anyone who's inquisitive about them, don't go clicking on any.

I got malicious site warnings when looking at a couple, one redirected to a porn site, I stopped looking after that, curiosity killed the cat, as the old saying goes.
