A whole new level of egregious link spam/removal has begun.
We are in the midst of removing a penalty from an important site, and I took a sample of the bad links to look at myself for a little quality control. I cam across a site listed below called, gimmewealth.com. This of course is a funny name, but with a sting when you figure out what they are doing.
The site I am working on had hired an Indian firm to build links for them. The client at the time thought they were writing articles, and then posting them in different places as a way of getting links. The client had no idea that there was anything wrong with this at all.
So we are helping them to remove these links, so that they may get the penalty removed.
This site shown below may have been a link built by the Indian company, or possibly was something even more evil which I will explain below.
Google has told us that bad links should be removed. When you search for bad links, you come across pages like this.
This bad link page, which is a pile of crap to start with, has actually put an automated payment system in place to have you pay them to remove the link.
They are smart in that they set the cost at a point, where most people will actually pay it.
Now here is the question?
Did the links on this site end up there because of Indian and other shady SEO companies building the links? Or did this company build this site, and put the crappy links on their site along with the paypal button as an entire business concept of it’s own.
Step 1 – Build a Crappy Site
Step 2 – Build Crappy Links to your site from porn, gambling and pharmaceutical sites.
Step 3 – Link out to millions of legitimate websites.
Step 4 – Put an automated button for people to pay to have your link removed.
Bad Luck? Or Evil Genius?
