How to Profit (in an annoying manner).

18 Dec

1. Build up popular free software – eg b2 Evolution.
2. Contain multiple links back to your site that are big keywords (eg – web hosting)
3. Due to lots of backlinks (all in the footer while having no ‘context’ with web hosting combined with your initial authority (almost 3 million backlinks according to Yahoo), rank very high for keywords like ‘web hosting’
4. Build an absolutely crap page that is nothing more than a bunch of affiliate links.
5. Profit massively.

For all this talk of how smart Googlers are and what not – this is just one example of a crap site using footer links to rank very high for a very competitive keyword. You will find the exact same in all the big keywords.

Ah, alas the days when you could fill your footer with over 5 links and get away with it. Nowadays people only accept one link.

Sounds just like the parked domains industry, which brings in hundreds of millions in annual revenue.

Not even close – domains = people type in the domain on their own. It is upto the owner to do whatever they want with their site.

This is 100% spam – extremely obvious but *shrug* – Google the all powerful cannot even see this one.
