    lol corporate America has always been "blackhat" in their marketing and expansion decisions...I'm sure Wal-Mart has probably made some dirty deals of their own to kill the competition, lol

    This is more proof that conventional SEO wisdom just isn't true-
    1. They almost entirely relied on buying links from TNX.
    2. On-page, JCP used mirror pages.
    3. Their link velocity was very obviously unrealistic with dramatic spikes.
