    Smacks of favoritism. They were even told what caused the ban. The rest of sit around trying to figure out what we did to draw the Googlebot's ire.

    It's normal to have such an approach with big players. Don't feel frustrated. The trend is everywhere.

    Well, good to see that BMW has removed the pages so quickly. But even Google banned themselves longer then that.

    It seems that even some of the big sites get no chance unless your a major corporation.

    To be honest, it's kind of crappy for him to disclose that info in the first place.

    These whole banning was a marketing gimick anyway to stength their image as the "good company", but maybe also to make an example out of it. Fact is that the doorway pages have been removed by BMW again even before Google banned the site, according to BMW because there have been so many compaints in blogs about it.

    Shame on them because they applied the rules ? They should remove all the big sites that do this, this way other sites will think twice before cloaking.

    Just goes to show that google is no different than any other big corporation. They are not going to bite the hands that feed them.
