Matt Cutts: Yes, Google is willing to take action on automatically generated pages that provide no added value

automatically generated pagesThere are times when you Google a particular term and end up with blotted search results, for example you Google a search quire “cheap laptops” and through search results you land up at a page that says “sorry, no content available related to cheap laptops” with ads all around. In the recent Google webmaster podcast on Youtube, Matt cutts said Google has set rule for auto generated page and the rules are clearly mentioned in its guidelines and websites with pages that have little or no content value are considered to have violated the rules. He further added that Yes, Google is willing to take action against all such websites, and being a user if you come across such websites you must report them to Google Webmaster Center to enrich user experience.

What does Google do against sites that have a script that automatically picks up the search query and makes a page about it? Ex: you Google [risks of drinking caffeine], end up at a page: “we have no articles for DRINKING CAFFEINE” with lots of ads.
