Dear Google,

Just in case you are unaware, it appears that you are spamming yourself. It seems that you have identical content on http://www.google.com/dirhp and http://directory.google.com. Surely this must be an oversight.

The proper thing to do would be to use a 301 redirect. I can’t imagine you not knowing how to implement a 301 redirect but by all means please let me know if you don’t. I’d be only too pleased to help!

While you’re at it, you might want to take a look at these as well…

I am truly happy to help you with your ongoing battle against SPAM. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if I can be of further assistance.

You are most welcome!

Dave

    Dave, I’m sorry but I have to admit this. I nearly went “potty” when I read this.

    This mean I get to subspam google now, since they are doing it?

    Another case of “do as I say, not as I do” from Google. If you or I were to spam Google like this, how long do you suppose before we were banned?

    It’s funny but at the same time sad.

    They want to tell everyone else what to do but don’t want to follow the rules themselves.

    Lot like the Goverment.

    http://www.gogole.com is redirected to Google. Might be they bought that too, considering the typos
