Google's definition of abusive experience includes phising, fake messages, actions that auto-direct with no user action, and any unexpected areas for click-bait.

Site owners will then be asked to make changes to the pages and submit an appeal.

Clearly display billing information: The site should inform users that they will be paying a subscription fee.

Site owners can use the Abusive Experiences Report in their Google Search Console to see if their site contains any of these abusive experiences they need to correct or remove.
