Comments: Stealth spam site strategy

a high pagerank doesn't mean that the site is good too...

I've been seeing similar techniques all over the place, shameful as it is. Looks like our old pal is up to youtube spamming nowadays. Interesting how the domain is a front for several other agencies.

The 'sarahsterling' domain is hosted by WebAIR out of NY and I recall phoning in several spam complaints to them in the past. They should be considered 'spam-friendly' as far as I'm concerned.

By God, I think I might write a blog post about such techniques.

Interestingly enough, I did manage to find that the apache configuration for that domain is rather odd. try /cgi-bin/join2.cgi?url= ;) Oddly enough it sends back an HTTP 302 Found redirecting to the given URL.
