Google Blocked Co.CC Domains from Search Results

In an unpredictable move Google deindexed and blocked all domains and sub domains. domain is quite popular among BlogSpot bloggers and many of them are using it as a custom domain. Even could be used for Adsense approval but now this won’t even work. is a bulk free sub domain provider and in last couple of years, it’s heavily been used for spamming, adsense for parked domain and spam sites. As mentioned by Matt Cutts, when ever Google sees large sites spamming from any freehosting service, they take action against it. Since it’s a domain penalty so all sub-domains are also affected. So it seems all users are going to have nightmare for some time and probably a lesson learned from this is never trust the free service. It’s better to have your own custom domain and none the less, it’s also better to have self hosted website on own webhosting.

This is indeed a bad news for all BlogSpot bloggers or users using Co.Cc and now it’s time to move to custom domain. Though Google should have informed users about this as many users have been using domain for long time. On the other hand even BlogSpot blogs are heavily used for auto spam blogs and for copy paste blog. I wonder if Google will ever take action against its own service?

What step users should take after Google ban on domains?

If you are a users and using it as a custom domain for BlogSpot, I would suggest you to quickly revert back to BlogSpot domain. Let Google crawl your blog again and then move to custom Blogspot domain. Here is a guide which will help you to set up custom domain on BlogSpot.

If you are a users do let us know your reaction and what steps are you going to take to get back your traffic?

      I was one a customer till last year when my mom bought me a WebHostingHub account as Christmas gift – I’d still be a customer if it wasn’t for that – and I had a site with nothing near to illegal let alone spam, adsense for parked domains and such.
      Same as me was the 95-97% of sites whose owners lost their sites without warning and reason.
      Only the 3-5% of customers abused the service; it is not fair that, because of black sheeps – who are everywhere, I bet even on Google Ads – the decent folks lost their blogs and sites.

    I have already informed my site’s visitors not to use subdomains for adsense approval..
    Now google removed it, no one will use it.

    If there are no free domains ,i think the lesser will be the spamming and autoblogs.:-)

  5. Sahil Kotak says

    That was surely need! I found recently that high amount of spam was generated from this domains only. I also see that they have blocked’s main site as well, I feel sorry for them!

  6. Mahender says

    Even before banning, google has given least priority for blogspot, domains than custom domains even though it contains genuine and good content. This is the reason why one month back i moved from (blogspot) domain to my own custom domain.

  7. wprack says

    This is a bad news for many bloggers. What if they have a blog with good income? It will be difficult for them to start again from scratch :(

  8. Ajay | says

    right harsh,only way left is to revert back and then apt for paid hosting..
    just wondering if google will also block their adsense accout ??

  9. Vijay | US Stock Newsletter says

    It is something bad news as Ashish said, my opinion is at least Google should send alert to these site owners to move the domain name to .com or .net or whatever possible extensions and redirect their feeds in to new website for a particular time period. In this way they won’t affect in this case.

  10. Dinesh Verma says

    Feeling sorry for users, its a good step taken by Google as domains were being used by spammers and a were used for illegal clicks.

  11. KBharath @ HDBloggers says

    This is great step by Google regarding Spamming Blogs, But i also had a site but not for spamming but for testing some themes and etc.

  12. rakesh says

    This move will harm the legal website owner. Now they have to move on other Domain Name extensions, if they want to get some traffic from google.

  13. Paritosh says

    “it’s heavily been used for spamming….” Precisely the reason for this ban. I’ve had many plagiarism issues from owner of such blogs. Sad for those not involved in spamming.

  14. Seobricks says

    That’s really a bad news for .cc domain users. I think Google may think of applying the same kind of penalty on .info domain as well as they are also heavily used for spamming purpose only.

  15. ashish says

    Bad news for most people as it is true that they were using it for putting ads and google can ban or de index them anytime
