    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

    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.

    “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.

    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.

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

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

    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.

    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 :(

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

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

    I have already informed my site’s visitors not to use co.cc 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.:-)

      I was one a Co.cc customer till last year when my mom bought me a WebHostingHub account as Christmas gift – I’d still be a Co.cc 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 Co.cc sites whose owners lost their sites without warning and reason.
      Only the 3-5% of Co.cc 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.
