Pagejacking with 302 Redirects Still Works in Google

February 14th, 2007 tony No comments

Actually I don’t know for sure that pagejacking is still a problem in Google and to be honest I’d be surprised if that is the case as you would think the SERP’s would littered with it but nonetheless Jason Duke has a great post detailing his theory and an example that certainly seems to suggest he is correct. I created a test over a week ago as Jason and I spoke on the phone and he let me in on the idea. I will post my results once Google indexes my test 302 redirect from a very powerful authority site.

Religious fanaticism enters the world of comment spam

January 13th, 2006 Tony No comments

I get a lot of comment spam in this blog on a daily basis but its nearly always for adsense scraper sites, porn, pills, or poker. Well the link spam world is finally welcoming religious fanatics. I logged in to find 10 comment spam from this idiot:

New to the game he didn’t post his spam through a proxy. Heh.

Infamous blackhat spammer N-I-K in the flesh!

December 6th, 2005 Tony 3 comments

About a dozen SEO’rs met up last night for an informal meetup at a London bar. We sent out the invites about a week ago and someone managed to get an email to the infamous black hat master NIK. Low and behold he showed up! I don’t really know if anyone has actually seen him in the flesh. He got quite drunk but didn’t let any secrets slip. However with a little persuasion I did manage to snap a couple of photos with my cell phone. If you’re reading this NIK, please don’t bring down my sites for outting you. :)



Mike Nott and Andre Chaperon have actually backed me up on this so as they say in London I’m not just taking a piss.
