WebAtlas booted from Google
The conversation threadlinked above started by some gloating knob could be very worrying for Directory owners. The knob in question is gleefully informing the members at seozip that webatlas.org has been booted from Google.
Speaking of knobs, this thread at IHU has Dastardly Doug crowing about "spammy directories" - there's not much to be gained from the thread itself (surprise..) but it's indicative of many threads floating around out there over the last couple of months about Directory sites having trouble with Google.
Is Google actively seeking out directories or are there some inherent flaws in the scripts that generate and maintain such sites that are tripping some kind of site hazard at G?
