    These sites look like harvesting sites, lol mumpaydayloans, daddypaydayloans, donkeypaydayloans, all in the top 10 for payday loans. There is no way they stay there for long.

    This is no problem, even if you just stay there for 3 days you will earn at least 8,000$ - no joke.

    Hi Guys,

    I signed up to BHW just for this post!

    I have written quite an in-depth article analysing the top ranking payday loan sites. It isn't about cloaking (as per Sky News) but about hacked Joomla plugins.

    I can't post links but if you Google:
    'hacking-joomla-to-rank-for-payday-loans-in-4-weeks'

    You should see it...

    Would love to get your black hat feedback! :)

    Remember talking about hacking techniques is against forum rules.

    Cheers,

    It is actually illegal in UK to own a payday loan website without license, that is what this article points at.

    This story was apparently leaked by a competitor and doesn't have any real grounding. Also, it's unlikely the actual loan brokers themselves would have employed such tactics, this would be aresult of some dodgy hacking by their affiliates most likely.

    Unless you have $3000 monthly budget(on SEO and maintenance) to spend, i won't suggest you to start a payday loans website.

    Saw and read it. Great read and great analysis. For sure they will be using a payday-penguin or payday-panda domain name soon :)
