WGOOGLE.COM - Register DNS Email Matches Google

It is only logical to think that Google would by the ww.wgoogle.com variation, just in case someone hit that period key one step to early. In fact, if you take a look at the whois record for WGOOGLE.COM, you will see that the physical address and email address match that of Google's headquarters. So what is the problem?

I dare you to check out wgoogle.com, you will notice that is basically a cheap doorway page, promoting mysportsbook.com. Mikkel from SEW forums, was kind enough to strip the JavaScript from the page and put it up on his server for us to take a look at http://www.geekbrowser.com/test/index.html.

The main question here is. Google would not be participating in doorway pages. So why would this company register the information using the email address [email protected]? Only Google or a Google employee would have access to this.

Forum discussion at Search Engine Watch, great find Marcia!
