    Google bans iAcquire over paid links

    The search marketing agency, iAcquire, that was allegedly responsible for buying links for clients was just banned from Google’s search results.

    iAcquire was cited as the agency behind Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corporation’s link buy request emails. For more on that see our story named What Can We Learn From The Latest Brand To Be Called Out For Paid Links?

    A site command search for [site:www.iacquire.com] returns no results.
    For full article see: iAcquire Banned From Google After Link Buying Allegations

    Google has been interesting to follow recently
    Some say they only favor "big brands", but in this case they take a slap at them, the expensive linkbuilding, and the guys that did it.

    Your thoughts?

    The latest Google Penguin update favors mega-brands like Amazon by as much as 20%

    In the past Google CEO Eric Schmidt that the Web is a "cesspool" and he believes that brands are the way to rise above the cesspool.

    iAcquire isn't a brand but rather an advertising agency. Though big brands like JC Penny have been penalized for buying links.
