    Hello all,

    While monitoring a competitors link profile, I noticed some high quality links hidden within, what look like, genuine pages, and I was wondering how this is not detected as "hidden links" by google etc, which I thought were being penalised.

    For example, if you go to this site www[dot]varico[dot]**/ and do a quick find for the phrase "rattan", you will notice that a url shows just above the search box, however you cannot see any link on the page.

    The code for it in the back end looks like this:
    Code:
     <div class="ssupport"><a href="url" title="rattan furniture">rattan furniture</a></div>
    Just wondering if anyone had seen/used this before, as it seems to be giving them great results through it.

    I think it is a hacked site.

    the css style:


    .ssupport a {position: absolute;text-indent: -8000px;}

    I thought it might be.

    They have so many of these high quality links that they must have bought a "hacked link package" surely.

    I'm not sure how I can compete with all of these exact match anchor homepage links on such high da pa pages.

    I just hope they get flagged asap!
