I've been penalized by Google.es after I tried to put some ads for my site on adwords. My site (EMD with 2 keywords in Spanish) got banned from Adwords because of "bridge site" violation. Basically, my site seems to have too many links pointing to Amazon.es... Then, while the homepage of my site cannot be found using keyword1keyword2 in a search (no space in between) on Google.es, I can clearly see the contact us page and other pages in the results. The weird thing is that if I use keyword1keyword2 search (again without a space in between the keyword) on the main US Google, the home page of my site still appears on the first page of the results (4th). Are all Google index managed separately for each countries? Will I ever recover from this penalty? I guess this is a lesson learned to never use adwords if you have any doubts about your site, because they will not just ban you from Adwords, they will also de-index your site.
