Did Google clear the Chanel and Gucci SERPs? Replicas are not ranking now

Msg#: 4232612 posted 2:30 am on Nov 20, 2010 (gmt 0)

I checked the term chanel , chanel bag, gucci , gucci bag, found there is no website selling replica now.

But in the terms like chanel bags, gucci bags, there are still many websites selling replica goods.

I suspect Google do cooperate with the luxury brands. Is there anything to do with Google's Boutiques.com?

What do you guys think?

Hello wyfwyf113 and welcome to the forums.

Normally we do not discuss specific search terms here - but this area is a pretty hot topic, so I am making an exception.

I do think Google is very sensitive to both the "replica" and the "counterfeit" question. It is a hard job to police the businesses who violate trademark law for luxury goods. You're right, at the moment those searches look pretty clean.

I just checked [chanel bag], but thought the SERPs were fairly poor quality (searching in the UK)

2-4 of the sites on the first page were just keyword stuffed 'thin' affiliate sites (I say 'thin' since the keyword stuffing was the only real content they had), and a couple of others had no real content either.

I don't know what the SERPs were like previously though since it's not an area I would go into, but they didn't seem too clear when I checked it.

Just my $0.02 :)
