How can we improve Bing Ads to create a better experience?

Stop giving page rank to mugshot extortion websites.

Stop giving page rank to mugshot extortion websites.

Bing would do well to stop giving page rank to extortion websites. They are run primarily by less-than-reputable people or companies who are taking advantage of others. Google stopped giving page rank to such sites a couple of years ago and I think it's time Bing.com stepped up. Laws have been enacted in seven states but people in the other 43 states remain vulnerable.

Some of the worst offenders with the highest Bing.com results appear to be:

bustedmugshots.com
*.arrests.org
pdxmugshots.com
