    Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison's Campaign Site Is Latest to Get Blocked by Google!

    Hutchison's Campaign Site Gets the Boot

    In the latest search engine showdown, Google blocked the Web site of Texas Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison's gubernatorial campaign last week after it found hidden text in the Web site's source code.

    To the average visitor, www.standbykay.com looked like any other political site. But those who could pull back the layers of the Web found something else.

    According to the Austin American-Statesman, the source code for the site included more than 2,200 hidden phrases, including word combinations with Hutchison's name and Rick Perry, the name of the incumbent. The newspaper said it also included the phrase "rick perry gay."

    A spokesman for Hutchison's campaign told ABCNews.com that its Web technology company, ElectionMall Technologies was informed by Google last week that the site had violated its guidelines. He also said that they had dismissed the firm.

    When contacted by ABCNews.com, ElectionMall declined to give a comment.

    The URL standbykay.com has been discontinued and directs to texansforkay.com. But when it was still alive, aides for the senator said the phrases were computer-generated based on campaign-related terms that Internet users would likely search for and were intended to help target online banner advertising, the Statesman reported.

    But hiding text in source code is a giant Google no-no.

    Not really in this case. They keyword flooded their webpages. The people that made the website tried to abuse the system and are paying the price.
