Andy Baio unearths yet another "high PR site sans business model" spewing out articles on subdomains and sticking adsense on the pages. This time the links are plain text. Whoop dee doo!
Here's a list of the sites I found, with the number of articles indexed by Google and Google pagerank. At current count, over 194,000 articles are indexed.
- credit.syndic8.com: 27,700 (PR7)
- debt.syndic8.com: 8,780 (PR3)
- glasses.syndic8.com: 6,310 (PR6)
- insurance.syndic8.com: 38,400 (PR7)

Sooner or later people will realise that this is what a fair chunk of SEO's do for beer money.
