In his recent blog post Matt says

that one must go through the Google’s webmaster guidelines to know more about the spamming issues.

Here is how you can give your feedback:

  • Go to Google's authenticated spam report form. Make sure that you have a Google account to sign in.
  • In the “Additional details” section, write the keyword “no results” (all one word, all lowercase). You may fill other details as well.
  • Also give an example of the url of “no results found” or “empty review”.
