A question to toronto person ask head of Google’s Webspam team Matt Cutts about: “What is being done to remove the “no results” pages?”
What is being done to detect and remove results from larger sites when they don’t have unique content that is relevant to a query (e.g. yelp.com results with no reviews, Facebook “business” pages that weren’t actually created by the business)?
Matt Cutts answer with a simple and straight response to “What is being done to remove “no results” pages?” in case you find any page having good positions in search results with bad or otherwise useful content with respect to searched query. Give google a feedback with the no result pages or report spam to google.
@mattcutts Render 404 page. Notify website’s master about not to index annoying no search results pages.

Matt Cutts, head of Google Webspam team, has just released another Webmaster Help Video on youtube explaining that in some case. Search engine has a problem figuring out the original sources of a specific user queries and a video that really helps to explain why this may be happening to your content.
When we create a new landing page with quality content, Google ranks that page on the top 30-50 for targeted keywords. Then why does the rank get decreased for the next 2 to 3 weeks? If pages didn’t have required quality, then why did it get ranked in the first week?
Here’s the video
Conclusion – I am sure that Google is taking the author into account along with the content, back-links, and keywords. My prediction is that good consistent content will continue to be rewarded.
