All the webmasters who do not care to follow the rules of Google can expect to hear directly from the company. Google has been sending notifications to the webmasters for not adhering to the rules of the company. One such notification has been posted at Search Engine RoundTable Forums by a webmaster who was hiding text by mistake. The mail reads:

This is not the first intimation by Google. But it is noticeable for the sheer attention to detail given by the Google team. Earlier, one would just get a mail saying there is some problem with the site which needs to be rectified. There was no clue as to what could be wrong with the site. But if the above mail is something to go by, Google is certainly rasing the standards in service.
