and do they know they’re hiring spammers? We know that JCP hired spammers, even though they claim ignorance (and I kinda believe that). Although this isn’t backlink buying, it’s still spam in my book, especially when it’s left as a comment on an SEO blog (mine!). Do these big brands know how HUGE of a “no-no” this practice is? Things like this are what gives the SEO industry the snake oil rap it has…
Image of Comment (caught by my spam filter):
All links go to the MAIN site of the very famous hand-bag maker above. Notice the “no-follows”, that’s someone “in the know” I’d guess. Why would someone (some spammer) go out of their way to employ this tactic this without being hired and lastly… does this famous hand-bag maker even NEED backlinks? I’m sure if searched on his product name, one of his sites (with his very expensive products) will rank. It’s not backlink buying … but it’s certainly an effort to get backlinks (even if they are no-follow) to his MAIN SITE in a very spammy way. Puzzling at best.
