    I was just reading here about some guy doing this a couple of days ago and came upon this story. It's quite an interesting read. Sadly I think this is exactly the type of thing that Penguin 2.0 will go after since it is being abused so much.

    Person behind this is actually still at it - but because it's always the same links from the same sites the new domain gets deindexed fairly quickly.

    Can still imagine he banks though.

    Is something like this even allowed to discuss here?
    Don't want to trash anything, just curious.
