French SEO Firms Appear Banned By Google

Several major French SEO firms have apparently had their sites and some of their customer sites banned by Google over spam accusations. All are members of the
SEMA 7 search engine marketing group in France.

ZDNet provides a write-up in French here: French référenceurs
“déréférencés” by Google
(bad English translation via Google
here). Le Journal du Net also has coverage
about large firm Netbooster being specifically targeted: Netbooster déréférencé par Google. The English
translation provided by Google is pretty garbled, but from
what I can read, Netbooster denies any charges of spamming.

French search engine expert Olivier Andrieu provides his take on the events here: “Il ne faut pas blâmer les
référenceurs sanctionnés”
(English translation by Google).
