Accept back in Google index

The German language Web sites of carmaker BMW and technology product vendor Ricoh are back in the search results on Google's search site after they stopped using a technique designed to artificially boost their search engine rating, according to a Google engineer.

Google blacklisted earlier this week after the carmaker violated Google's guidelines by including "doorway pages" that would automatically redirect visitors to a different URL. That Web page was more attractive than the page the crawler saw, but would have scored lower in Google's PageRank system. At the time, Google said it was also planning to blacklist

"I appreciate BMW's quick response on removing JavaScript-redirecting pages from BMW properties," Cutts wrote in his blog on Tuesday. "The webspam team at Google has been in contact with BMW, and Google has reincluded in our index. Likewise, has also removed similar doorway pages and has been reincluded in Google's index."

Google will be expanding its efforts to fight Webspam in none-English languages this year, he added.
