Brick & Mortar Penalty

Hi Everyone,

I was just checking out some of the new Google street view maps in my neighborhood pretty wild stuff! After taking a look at the shots of my house, I did some exploring and found my van parked on the street.

Google has been nice enough to blur out my license plate but would you believe they also blurred out my logo and website URL on the side of my vehicle? I am amazed Google is taking the time do this, so what do you think? Is this how widespread the 40 penalty has become? Maybe the text is too close in color to the paint or maybe I just need more links to my van? A friend of mine has a van that looks almost identical; perhaps I have just tripped the duplicate content filter. LOL!

Just thought some of you might get a kick out of this,

Thanks for that information - it is amazing. I guess they're heading off physical world spam before it grows too big. I know some people were cutting their logos into crop fields in hopes that a satellite image would capture it and it would show up in Maps!
