Ray, I think you’re distorting what is going on. Google are,
rightly, protective of their search results and work actively against
people that try to manipulate the search results. This is what BMW.de
redirect users to the right page. As an aside, this would have broken
accessibility is it? Google were protecting their index, not using it as
a vendetta against people it doesn’t like as you were suggesting. Stop
being so paranoid and stop distorting the story, or you’re no better
than the devil you’re trying to paint Google as.
