Google Officially Confirms Traffic-Power Ban From Index

Google’s Matt Cutts has provided official
of a ban on the Traffic-Power domain
name and some Traffic-Power client sites. Matt writes about how Google hasn’t
usually confirmed or denied if a company has been banned in the past, but it’s a
policy now changing in cases where Google finds it useful to help educate site
owners and others. As for Traffic-Power, Matt wrote:

I can confirm that Google has removed and domains
promoted by Traffic Power from our index because of search engine optimization
techniques that violated our webmaster guidelines at

Matt’s post — which he notes was reviewed by Google’s lawyers — was in
reaction to a recent court filing in the case of Traffic-Power versus
TrafficPowerSucks. As Threadwatch notes, the filing by Traffic-Power alleges
that TrafficPowerSucks has made false and defamatory claims including:

a. Claims that the search engine giant Google has banned and is banning
from its search engine listings websites of clients because
of the search engine optimization strategies used by Plaintiff.

b. Claims that clients of run the risk of being banned
from Google search engine listings if they use services

Fair to say, TrafficPowerSucks now has some pretty powerful evidence to
refute the Traffic-Power allegations.
