    googlewebdesign.co.uk

    I thought google would sue these guys for passing off?

    Ranks position 2 page 1 for "web design" in google.co.uk

    Of course its not allowed... :D

    Well, sooner or later this site will be gone...(if google decides that this page is violating their brand name, etc.)

    No . . . It isn't allowed as far as I know. Google has gone after people for using their name in a domain name in the past. So I would imagine that they will soon shut that site down as well.

    Hope that answers your question :)

    Cheers! - "Wiz"

    I say flip the site now while it still ranks. Let someone else take the risk.

    Yeah in this case G will do a C&D as soon as they find out about it. Some companies aren't as hard line so you can do trade name related TLD's as long as you're promoting them, but I know G doesn't even like if you screw with their Adwords Certification images and such.

    Interesting, they registered in June through GoDaddy so they are new. Anyone taking bets as to when it gets taken down? You can hear the C&D letter working its way through the Google corporate lawyer's office right now!

    good job trying to get the site deleted...sigh...if not you are trying now by making this post. imagine that is your website... and some idiot decided to make a post wondering if YOUR website was breaking the "rules"...and you happened to be making you a bunch of money.... does that sound cool? karma will get you sometimes I wonder if bhw is helping or hurting us all these days
