I’m catching up on my RSS and my email. There’s the typical run-of-the-mill emails, like the emails to Googlebot:
Good day Googlebot!
We are an international escrow company.
Now we are looking for a new partners.
You can earn some money – do not lose this opportunity!
It is easy and completely free for you.

I also saw a different email that a group sent to Google. The email is a little prickly. They said things like
our-domain.com is still listed on other search engines and we find it
very difficult to understand why it is no longer listed on Google. We
implore you to reconsider your censorship of our domain name, so that the
spirit of freedom and the hopes of many are allowed to flourish.
Just as a reminder, if your website isn’t showing on Google, you should check your own domain. After reading the email from this group, I checked out their domain on Yahoo! for a couple of minutes. I tried doing a site: query on Yahoo! and saw doorway pages on the first results page. With almost no refinement, I found pages like this:
Hmm. Looks like multiple doorway pages on the site (not even in just one subdirectory). So I go to check out one of these pages and it looks like this:
Hee hee. It says “Copyright 2004 madonna star sex porno Company. All Rights Reserved.” Heh. All the pages have this doorway template.
Google’s webmaster quality guidelines are pretty clear that autogenerated doorway pages are not welcome in our index. So this is a case where checking out your domain would be just a productive as contacting Google. The best advice I could give would be to remove all the doorway pages and then submit a reinclusion request.
