    This is a very newbie question, but if someone can just give me the correct keywords and terms for what i am looking for i will start searching and figuring it out for myself. much appreciated. i will return the favor somehow.:)

    i am not new to IM or SEO, but just to this method.

    What is it called or the method called when you create thousands of pages/sites using databases or mass content for the spiders to crawl, but redirect visitors using cloaking to a sales page/homepage? I think the way it works it that because you have so much keyword optimized content on all those pages that it ranks better?

    I know a couple of people that do this for gambling sites and adult sites to drive massive affiliate traffic and are making a killing. of course they are hesitant to share the exact methods,:listen: so like most things i must figure it out myself.

    As far as I know there is not a single name for it, as it is a combination of various techniques (like autoblogging/auto content generation, cloaking, redirecting etc.)

    If you could give an example of such a site (you can also PM), I would probably be able to tell you how it is done or at least point you in the right direction.

    You should check out the Cloaking and Content Generators section.

    I read the article but it´s not exactly what you´re asking.

    What you are describing are sites build on doorwaypages.
    Keyword rich but usually unreadable.
    That´s where the cloaking-redirecting comes in.
    The content of the doorwaypages is only meant for search engine spiders, not for humans.

    The article describes a couple of things but it deals mainly with building a link farm to boost your whitehat sites.

    He uses databases because these give him enough content for 1000s of pages.
    The article is from 2007 so the whole autoblogging thing wasn´t as widespread as it is today.
    He had to build all his tools himself.

    BTW, using databases as a content source is in the spotlight now here on BHW because of EZ Empire Builder...

    i looked at ez empire builder and their website which also has a couple good videos on cloaking that got me clear on how that works. what else is there like ezempire builder or how was it done before ezempire builder? seems some recent comments on BHW on the ezempire topic are saying there is a little issue with getting responses and no one has really put it through the test. Seems like ezE is similar to what autoblogging except autoblogging actually has relevant information it posts?

    thanks for the insight. i am reading through threads on cloaking now as well to get up to speed.
