    Code:

    Do 'view source' and check the bottom. How did they do this link injection? ;)

    Damn, they are just raping that poor site. Not sure how but I'm sure they're smarter and much richer than me.

    It's not "link injection". All they've done is put a list of links on their site, which you can't actually see on the page because of the way that they've done the CSS. Note the position left: -2400px, which is off-screen and therefore invisible to humans but readable by spiders.

    Code:
    style="position: absolute; top: -400px; left: -2400px;"

    Before, I said it wasn't link injection based one definition of the term, but now I believe that it IS link injection, based on another definition of the term. Anyhow, answering your implicit question would venture into the realm of hacking, which is not allowed here. All I'm going to say is that the site in question is using Wordpress, which is notorious for security vulnerabilities.

    Inside CSS just have:

    .hidden
    {
    display: none;
    }

    And then on your page have:
    <div class="hidden">
    <a href="http://site.com">Keywords Keywords Keywords</a>
    </div>

    Hidden from the visitor and I it will inject the link. I don't know if Google can interperate CSS from style sheets?

    Google is aware of various CSS tricks that can be used for "evil" purposes. However, the real issue that the OP and gr33n are trying to get at is how exactly someone could place such code on someone else's site without permission. The answer involves hacking, which is not allowed to be discussed here.

    Ah right. The answer probably lies in a WP plugin or an older version of WP installed.
