SEO Cheater of the Day

I know it’s been awhile since I did one of these but here you go people.  Check out the cheaters!

Whenever I see a dark background on a website that clearly has some type of optimization going on, I immediately look for hidden text…and about 25% of the time it’s there.  Case in point. 

First the text at the top of the page is very questionable and that in itself might set off Google at some point.  Second, look at the bottom of the page.  You will find hidden text and key phrases between the sitemap link and their copyright.  That’s enough to report to Google. 

Report the Cheaters:

To Google

Search phrase is “denver web design”

and here is the link http://www.google.com/search?q=denver+web+design&hl=en&start=10&sa=N

Amazingly, these idiots are on the top of the 2nd page of results…if this keeps up it’s going to be very hard to convince people not to cheat.

    The silly thing about this is the site doesn’t even try to do the easy (and “legal”) things Google likes. Worse yet, this is supposed to be a company that helps other people make websites.

    Geeze.

    Good catch.

  2. And even worse…look at their portfolio. They are employing the same techniques to their clients websites. Not good.

  3. That is not a good practice to do. Google will punish them.
