    Hi everybody,

    Strange thing... When I click on "Black Hat SEO Tools", I'm redirected to :
    Code:
    http://www.apple.com/iphone/
    And a lot of connections on the section :

    It's just a new marketing tactic from Apple. Now they are hijacking forum traffic. Apparently product announcements and huge press doesn't bring enough traffic anymore :)

    Just analysed, it seems to be a .htaccess hack (?).

    GET procedure on the URL of the BlackHat Tools section :

    I think it is more to gain some fake pagerank, rather than a hack ;) ..

    [EDIT]Just realized it was on BHW itself lol. But it might be a test for the PR trick, some further explanations would be good. ;)

    You're right, certainly.

    But, who the f*** would try to give fake PR to the BlackHat Tools section... ?
    This trick is long to apply.
