A few bloggers have spotted the fact that BigMouthMedia is notably absent from the search results this week and are calling it a penalty.

It isn’t a penalty (and BMM hasn’t done anything to deserve one) but the issue is certainly interesting, especially when you look at the screenshot below which shows the domain “g-maps.com” when you search for info:bigmouthmedia.com

My first thought was a 302 hijack by a third party but the g-maps.com domain is owned by BMM so it seems like a simple case of a server misconfiguration to me.

Worrying that Google is still vulnerable to this stuff.
