Comment (by ionutn):


 I am not sure if it is possible, but at least I think it makes sense that
 the themes would rank for their name only. Those users know already what
 they want and in those cases the directory would just create a bad
 experience for them, forcing them to move on Google, find the zip and come
 back to upload it.

 Re: the penalty, if this feels unfair for other authors like us that got
 suspended in the past, or lack of consistency in the TRT messaging, I
 guess the authors can have the option or TRT would decide: 6 weeks with
 brand search ban vs 8 weeks or more for e.g without brand search ban.

 This should keep both a good directory experience for users and content
 creators + a fair treatment regarding the guidelines broken.
