Mainstream Media Covers "Google Bans and Buries"

Aug 7, 2009 - 8:36 am 3 by

All of you are well aware of the penalties Google shells out to webmasters for disobeying their word. But does your mom know them? Does your aunt or nephew - probably not. That might soon change as more and more mainstream media outlets begin to cover how Google works and interacts with the web sites that make up their powerful index.

Ki Mae Heussner of ABC News wrote an article named Google Bans and Buries Web Sites: 6 Search Engine Showdowns. In that article she educates the average person out there on how Google manages the quality in their index and thus regulates the Internet. She covers 6 categories of topics that we all know too well:

  • Hutchison's Campaign Site Gets the Boot
  • BMW Germany Blocked for Deceptive Practices
  • Traffic-Power Banished From Google
  • GoCompare's Traffic Tumbles After Google Rap
  • Google Vs. Google (Japan
  • Google Vs. the Entire Internet (Malwaring the Internet)

I love seeing articles like this in mainstream media, it makes our industry make more sense to the public (i.e. your mom). I was quoted in the article, although I am not sure how my quote came out exactly like that.
