    You would think by now that BST sellers would not be using Gmail for their reports/communication, for obvious reasons. It is known that G can and does have access to emails. I mean why even take the chance even if it is small? Just received a order today from a gmail account. So annoying.

    Are you for real?

    If you don't like the fact that they use Google to transmit SEO information, just don't use them.

    Ask before you purchase from someone. It actually is that simple.

    Keep seeing this. Is it really the case that they can read email contents?
    If so do you really think they would monitor it for SEO-busting purposes?
    It seems unlikely to me but I don't know - I have seen many different people mention it.....

    While I used a private e-mail to deliver the packages in my BST, I used it because it looks professional and because I saw people complaining about BST sellers using free e-mails before.

    I personally don't think Google cares very much about scouring through billions of e-mails to find people purchasing web 2.0 backlinks. They have more important things to look through e-mails for than that.

    Google shouldn't be indexing or reading the email content. Otherwise it would be mentioned in their privacy policy, which will cause lots of criticism and some FTC cases. Maybe I am not that paranoid.
