So what's with these weird URLs I keep scraping up?

    Stuff like this 03388df.netsolhost.com/WordPress/%3Fp%3D122

    They shows up in droves in just about every scrape I do. but they don't seem to actually go anywhere or do anything. What's the deal with these floaters in the SERPs? What are their purpose?

    Lol I HATE those URLs. I scrape 100k+ earlier and I swear that at least like half of them were like that. I have wondered what their purpose is for a while now.

    Its just a website hosts domain which they offer subdomains on. They are just massively ranked for many keywords. Just google http://netsolhost.com/ and you will see lots of live real blogs, but most are abandoned or have done a redirect to their real domain once they moved out of noob status.

    Ya, I figured it was something Network Solutions was offering, but I wasn't quite sure what the deal was, because every single one of them I try to visit from my scrapes gives me the redirect error.

    What's the speed like on those Proxy51 shared proxies?
