While I was checking out another forum I ran across a very interesting post. A guy was asking a question about how Google Places counts the citations. It seems he ran across a site the was listed #1 on Places and had 29 citations. It seems that 28 of the 29 citations came from Blogspot. I checked it out for myself and sure enough it is true. And to top it off, the blogspot was owned by the same company and all of the 28 came from this blog. All they did was place their address and link to money site in the upper left part of sidebar. It was a small site, imagine if you had thousands of pages like that?
