    No problem. Kind of breaking personal rules about blogging about SEO news, but I want a record / reference for the nay-sayers.

    Seems like they registered the domains in jun to avoid the sandbox. I thought that even once out of the sandbox there was a limit to how many links google would count for you as your still a new domain? Shows what i know.

    Haha, that’s awesome to see that Google aren’t as on top of things as we are constantly told!

    To be honest though I don’t think that we needed the article to know that blackhat SEO still works ;-)

    Really interesting stroy and I’m stunned that google didn’t recognize a SERP domination of this extend. Too bad, seems to be clever guys on the wrong side…

    Frankly, although I did not think we need an article, know that hackers are still effective search engine optimization

    There are some very clever guys doing some amazing things to stay under the Google bots vision, but all these strategies tend to get penalised eventually and then your site suffers,slap,slap,slap !!

    You only have to look at certain sites rankings to see that black hat SEO sites still get ranked – especially if they are PPC as well! – or am I just cynical?

    I certainly haven’t noticed any correlation between PPC spenders and SEO results. I’m skeptical, but open to it, if you have any examples you’d like to share?
