All Effective SEO Techniques Are Legitimate

7 comments

SEO Blackhat just posted a wide array of examples of large businesses blatently violating Google's TOS, including massive automated content generation. Are Google losing control of SEO? Or is it something they never really controlled? What happens when most every big business does things that search spammers do on the side?

Oh the pain

Yup it's true..it's out there..it's a problem.

Nice o BH to 'out' them. Now more companies will turn to BH and spammy techniques.. I guess it's back to the library for usefull information huh?

Besides, even legitimate media uses auto-generated content http://www.breitbart.com/news/2006/08/23/D8JMB7E00.html

Spam spam and computer generated content. Time to go back to story telling around the camp fire, this ain't workin out

ROFL

I Was Surprised to See...

.. a publishing company who have been in business for over 70 years and have large corporate sites for all major countries using huge amounts of CCS hidden text.
I came across it in a genuine search for some information

The page I saw showed only six lines of text and ranked #1.
Turn off CSS and the whole first chapter of the book appeared!

Two things I don't understand:
How it survives in Google let alone makes #1
And why do they do it? The site is so strong they could be #1 anyway

Isn't it a truth that you

Isn't it a truth that you can get away stupid stuff if you are BIG simply because the good outranks the bad?

Now shut up because we do not want the Amazon.com's of the world optimizing their content, gheesh.

New spam filter

AbuseOfTrustRank penalty ;-)

AbuseOfTrustRank is only one

AbuseOfTrustRank is only one of the factors I bet so if you got 80% of them correct and own the brand you do not have to worry about stuff weenie bloggers do.

So there, I love being right.

Haven't I been saying this for years?

and non effective ones too...

and Google was never in control of SEO - they just think they should be.
