There was a post here saying that you can use sponsored posts (with a lot of links pointing at them) to outrank a .gov site. I'll be using the same sponsored post strategy to try to outrank the Consumer Affairs site. Anyone else here use this method? It seems like a good idea because you are giving the offending sites more, legitimate competition in the search results. For some sites, it seem as if all the Web 2.0's in the world won't outrank them.
