Greetings, Wanted to know how this site managed to get from PR0 - PR5 in two months damn near. The Site is called Cmonsononline, it's a comedy vlog/web 2.0 site hosted by Ed Lover famous veejay and now radio-host on Power 105.1. The content consists of current controversial news with Ed Lovers 'CmonSon' cardboard held up after every comical moment. The video's are hilarious, but besides that I wanted to know how the hell this brand new domain got from PR 0 - PR 5 in two months. This is absolutely impossible from a white-hat perspective. Now I took into consideration that Ed is a radio host on a syndicated radio show, so he is getting a shitload of promo from the radio-show itself so there's no need to figure out where the traffic is coming from. I wanted to see the actual SEO done and this is what I researched: Which didn't really reveal much other than just 1 site is linking in and the obvious traffic ranking from the wave of daily traffic. The whois information revealed a little bit more info, the site was created on the 6th of october and is hosted and registered with GO DADDY. O.k but still no answer to HOW THE HELL DID THEY GET TO PR5 so quick. Jumped over to yahoo site explorer and revelaed some more interesting information. 895 internal links and 313 indexed pages. I crossed check with the big G to see that it has over 46,300 indexed pages. These pages are from the web 2.0 features of the site (groups,member pages,forums). Well even with 46K user generated pages indexed in google within say 3 months tops, and including the traffic volume. That had to obviously contribute to google's algorithm for assigning pagerank. I would like to know the exact steps whatever marketing company used to generate those results. Whatever steps they used, I CAN BET MY LIFE there is BLACKHAT SEO involved. PR 0 - PR 5 in 2 months is not from natural growth and content! What do you say?
