Google Dropping CO.CC from results

 Google is deciding to take a big swing at the Malware/Scammer problem in search results. They have decided to remove all bulk sub-domain services (like co.cc) from results of Google Search. In fact Google has reported that have found 50K malware domains from one bulk providers. In my research I have found co.cc did have a lot of malware domains but I guess people out there were using it for clean reasons. If you were using a bulk provider for your domain I would recommend looking into another .(something) domain for your site if you want to stay on Google results.
