    The real news is not that they are going to be parsing and / or executing javascript (most people with a clue were aware that they could do this already) but that they are also going to be executing POSTs.

    This is big news for people who are using javascript and POSTs (ie. Brad's CPA redirector) to hide affiliate links.

    However it also opens up a new realm of content stuffing via POSTs embedded in divs that are hidden to real surfers.

    Can you explain a bit more about POSTs, in specifically the impact on people using Brad's CPA redirector.

    There are two main types of requests that a client (ie. Googlebot, or your web browser) can make to a server under the HTTP protocol:

    * GET - when you passively fetch a web page, eg. when you fetch the index page of BHW.
    * POST - when you submit a form and are actively sending information to the web server, eg. when you post the login form and send your user / pass to the BHW server.

    Previously Gbot seemed to infrequently either parse javascript (read the source code and look for url strings) or execute javascript (put the source code through a javascript interpreter and see what happens), but it never really submitted forms via POST that I've been aware of.

    Brad's CPA redirector works by using a two-stage javascript redirect where stage one is setting up a form and triggering it via javascript, and the second stage is a straight javascript redirect. The combination of the javascript redirect and the POST gets rid of the referrer in pretty much every browser, and it used to have the added benefit of stopping Gbot in its tracks because it wouldn't go through both the js redirect and the form POST.

    We all know that Google hates "thin affiliate" sites and so it's a good idea IMHO to hide your affiliate links somehow, and Brad's CPA redirector used to do a pretty good job of doing that.

    However if Gbot is going to be implementing javascript and form POSTs to the point that they can index FB comments and other ajax content, we can probably assume it will also follow Brad's CPA redirector through to the final destination (ie. the affiliate program you're sending the traffic to). So if you want to hide your affiliate links from Google then you're probably going to have to take things a step further, eg. by adding extra javascript obfuscation to your referrer blanking script, or cloaking somewhere along the line so Gbot either never sees the outgoing links, or it sees a different final destination than your surfers are seeing.

    All of this points to branding. I still think that's what the big g wants businesses to do is brand their business. I read some article that talked about the ceo of big g wanting people to brand themselves. it's like the rel=author tag. This lets google know that jenna tolls that writes on blabla dot com, is the same jenna tolls that writes articles on ezine, and is the this jenna tolls on fb, twtr, and ect. It's all about being active in social media. I've posted about this on this forum and some douche posts quoting me with a smart ass reply. I see tons of backlinks from facebook in g analytics, using linkbait and video for local seo. It works wonders. It's the only way to compete when you have 679,000 exact match competing pages for a local term.
