    Getting Google to remove a site?

    Just been checking the code of some competitors (as you do..) and found one to be using hidden content. Any chance of getting Google to remove it? If so, anyone know which email address to use?

    PS: Was looking in Google Groups and this ad was at the top of the adsense box:

    Doorway Page Creator
    Guaranteed Top 10 Se Rankings
    Build-in Meta-Keywords Extractor
    http:// cloaking-scripts.com

    Quite amusing I thought

    The chance of them removing the site manually is extremely small. They normally only do that when the site is posing a security risk, such as displaying credit card details or something.

    It's worth reporting anyway, as they use the reported sites to adjust their algorithms in order to try and catch them automatically.

    The address is on google's contact page I think.
