||Some websites are not maintained or cared for at all by their webmaster. These “abandoned” websites, especially websites which have become hacked or defaced, should be rated Lowest.
A hacked or defaced website is a site which has been modified without permission from the website owner(s). Responsible webmasters should regularly check their websites for suspicious behavior and take steps to protect their users.
Note: You will very rarely see hacked or defaced websites because most webmasters act very quickly to undo the damage to their website.
However, you may encounter pages with a large amount of spammed forum discussions or spammed user comments. We’ll consider a comment or forum discussion to be “spammed” if someone posts unrelated comments which are not intended to help other users, but rather to advertise a product or create a link to a website.
Frequently these comments are posted by a “bot” rather than a real person. Spammed comments are easy to recognize. They may include Ads, download, or other links, or sometimes just short strings of text unrelated to the topic, such as “Good,” “Hello,” “I’m new here,” “How are you today,” etc.
Webmasters should find and remove this content because it is a bad user experience.
While a specific page on a website may have a large amount of spammed forum discussions or spammed user comments, it does not mean that the entire website contains only spam.
Pages on websites which are not maintained or cared for at all should be rated Lowest. Pages with a large amount of distracting, unhelpful spammed user comments should be rated Lowest.
