    So I have a brand new client. Mind you Im not a huge SEO guru. I am a web develoer going into SEO.
    So I have a client who is wanting to get back to the top has he has been for years. Since the algroithm changes he recently moved down and a competitor has moved up.

    I checked this competitors backlinking strategy and came upon something really interesting stuff and wanted to see if other people have used or seen this around?

    This competitor has 78 pages all crappy nothing but images and a little bit of content and your basic pages.
    But they have 4,500 back links. All do follow. .org, .edu, .com various sources. But not of the backlinks are from websites relating to there niche.

    They have backlinks on random websites that have nothing to do with there niche. With a css trick.

    <div style="position: absolute; left: -22680px;"> <a href="http://website.com/"> keyword new york</a> </div>

    First Im not sure how they even achieved this on other peoples websites and second how Google hasnt caught onto there tactic?

    If anybody has seen this before or knows how they are achieving this. Im assuming they dont have access to these websites or if some SEO guru they are paying has access to 4000 random websites.

    Any ideas? I know there are tons of Guru's on here so thought I would ask.

    Thanks

    does are links from a hacked site, basically their seo provider hacked the site then put his/her clients link in the site.

    Yes thats what Im thinking. Its def unethical hacking. This person has found a way into all of these of the sites. I think I found kinda how they did it. As most CMS systems have some sort of hack that you are able to get into them. They did a search for all sites with this hack got into it placed there link. Crazy stuff people come up with, but I dont know how long they have been doing it or how long they will be able to do it. But man you can charge a lot of money if you had the know how lol

    I've seen this a few times myself while doing some competition research. I was having a hard time finding my competitions link and noticed that it wasn't visible to human reads , instead it was hidden deep in side the pages CSS so only search engine spiders could actually see it. I'm wondering how effective are these links and how long until google actually catches on and devalues them.

    I suppose it would not be a problem for google to see, all they would have to do is deauthorise any backlinks with a css attribute of a minus text-indent

    Actually no one can charge him. Cuz there is noway to prove its him did that. So I can get you in prison by hacking other sites and link back to you!

    Well, actually it's not that hard to hack a dedicated server and send a backlink to yourself from all domains under it. There are hundreds of thousands of exploits out there. Actually this is an amazing idea :D. How I never thought of this ........... !

    Would love to do it right. I am more towards ethical and organic search, but also this is the competition thats doing it. There getting 2,500 visitors because of this tactic. So instead is Senuke X still pretty legit after the algorithms. Anybody have tutorials on working with it after the algorithm?

    To be honest with you this has been done for quite a while in all major niches.. Viagra/Pharma being one of the main ones..

    Just yesterday I was looking through one of my competitors backlinks and I found a ton of .ru domains with PRs ranging from 3 & up. Right off the back I new they hacked the site for several reasons but the main one being that the site was written in Russian and the only thing that was written in english was the anchor text of their backlink on the page. Not to mention that all the links were site wide links (I guess if you plan on hacking the site might as well go big..).

    This has been done for years going back to the early 2000s. I myself did it once, not for backlinks but for personal reasons but I have since then left it alone...

    How google can send people unnatural link warnings and punish them for footer links, but not hacked site links (which I know they can detect) is beyond my comprehension. What a company.

    Your right.. There are viruses that can be installed on your PC which modify your PHP files (Seen it with my own eyes). To pin point this to someone is nearly impossible to be quite honest.. That's if you know what your doing..

    Interesting technique for sure. Might be able to make a few $$ by sending those site owners a message offering to help them clean their site.
    On Senuke, I'm also interested in hearing what's been working post Pengui-n.

    They place a javascript code in articles. it mostly done with a help of website. when someone copies it, javascript is also included in it. so while publishing you get a backlink too

    I did research on it all day today. Its a exploit in the CMS system many old versions have them. They simply access the back with a javascript code implement there file or backlink. I guess its very common. Just people that dont update there cms system or ever check to see if there website has a tons of links on it. Guess if your not a tech person or web developer you would never know. Css code was in the html page source, but there are many ways to see there css.
