    If you found an exploit in Google Web Master tools that allowed you to remove any page, sub folder or entire domain from the google index when ever you want what would you do????

    This fucking idiot just made a blog post and told google. What a waste.

    Did anyone know about this?

    Summary:
    He found an exploit in the url removal tool that a part of GWT. Basically by medling with the URL you could request a page/folder/domain that you didnt own and request it to be removed. It then seems that even tho its meant to check for 404 and robots.txt it just went ahead and removed it anyway.

    Imagine if you had that power.

    I cant post URL's but you can find the post on hacker news.

    this was patched ages ago and actually when active went through a manual acceptance process. I know this because i used this.

    Now you have a similar this where you can submit a dmca to google to ask to take down any site. But you have to be very good wit your reasoning

    I think you should consider having some ethic and not stealing hard work from others.

    it doesn't look like link bait.
    I think he is making enough money or making lots of it that he doesn't need to remove his competitors off google.

    He should have removed youtube lol since google owned it too.

    I would inform Google immediately so they could fix it. I'm all for exploiting Google, but being Blackhat doesn't mean having no sense of morality. It's a way to beat the system itself and you definitely cross a line when you start tearing down other people's homes instead of building up your own.

    Ethics may not pay your bills, but they do define who you are in this world.

    +1 for a good deed by the blogger :p

    looks like a bunch of bs... does anyone actually say they got any results with this "bug" ? I just see a lot of "what if".....

    what if google stayed a search engine instead of trying to own the internet?

    Even if it's BS, the guy did a great viral blog post and will definitely get some links. :)

    I see so many people trying their best to bring down the rankings for competing sites so their site would rank higher. They should use their time on their own site, because who knows, their efforts to blacklist/lower the rankings of a competing site could have the exact opposite effect intended...

    The part of the quote is a cliche but so true...

    For me black hat does not mean stealing others. My strongest rival in my keywords is a friend or acquaintance. I only try to rise in google, not lower others. OFC rising does mean others are lowered but they got lowered because I was better not because I was bad.
    Blackhat to me is about maximizing my chances by using most available means. Not all available means.
