Google Puts Smackdown on BMW.de

Matt Cutts outed BMW.de for using gateway pages and explained how BMW got kicked out of Google's index for the practice. Those naughty Germans! I guess the Googlers are more down with their Benzes or that fancy bus they get to ride around in.

But think about the sheer power of the Googleite that could pull that switch. What if you did the same thing to an Amazon, or walmart.com? How much money could an eCommerce site lose by being kicked out of Google? (cue Dr. Evil laugh).
