Because there are still many website owners that don’t perform best practice of standard security can make their websites easily get hacked. Most of the website that commonly gets hacked is government website, universities website, company website, small business website, restaurants website and many more. The problem that website owners facing is that hackers can found access in many ways and what they did is hard to noticed or found. In few cases, a page for some reason is showing blocks of illegitimate text and links but this is not happing in other page.
With many website that they successfully hacked, hacker’s websites generate more traffic than usual.

These algorithms changes are eventually will impact about 5% of queries; this will depend on the language that the site uses.

For instance, if a web page is displaying paragraphs of text about turntable and vinyl, but the webmaster didn’t put those texts, Google can easily display that page for a search on those topics. The next thing that Google will do is to identify the text that mark as spam, with this way Google will remove the page from their search result page.
