Google Page Creator invitation to spammers? : Web Hosting

Google Page Creator invitation to spammers?

Wed Mar 08, 2006 2:48 am

I hope I'm wrong, but I think there's a serious flaw in Google's new Google Page Creator. To me, it looks like an open invitation to spammers.

For people who want free web hosting, Google has created a WYSIWYG (what-you-see-is-what-get) Google Page Creator.

To get it, you can go to http://pages.google.com and sign in using your Gmail account.

If you don't have a Gmail account you can get one here:
https://www.google.com/accounts/SmsMailSignup1
(You need a mobile phone. If you don't have a mobile phone, you need to ask for an invitation to Gmail from an existing Gmail user.)

At this stage, each account can have only one site. "We'll soon be offering support for multiple sites," Google says.

I imagine the Page Creator will be popular with newcomer affiliates.

What concerns me is that your Gmail username automatically becomes part of the URL of your site.

So if your Gmail address is "example@Gmail.com", your website will be called http://example.googlepages.com .

It looks to me as though spam robots can now crawl the Internet finding Google Page Creator sites and know with 100% accuracy the email address of the site's owner.

Please tell me I'm wrong, someone.

If this is the case then Geocities domains are vulnerable too.
