    Hey everyone,

    I checked my rankings today and i've shot to position 1 for a binary options related keyword..

    I dug a big deeper to see where the links were coming from and i uncovered these hardcore guys!

    Look at what their doing, it's INSANE!!!!

    So i now have hundreds of websites suddenly linking to me and this is where it gets REALLY interesting!

    Check these pages out:
    http://getresultsthatstick.com/wp-c...ew/online/trading-binary-option-affiliate.php
    http://getresultsthatstick.com/wp-c.../online/trading-100-free-forex-indicators.php
    http://getresultsthatstick.com/wp-c.../online/trading-best-100-brokers-in-forex.php

    https://ahrefs.com/site-explorer/overview/subdomains/?target=getresultsthatstick.com

    Now look at the backlinks to these pages:
    http://prntscr.com/55hyye

    Their PUMPING THEM HARD!!!!

    On first look, it just looks like their doing it with a handful of websites but when you dig deeper they must have infected more than a million sites!! It spreads across a huge range of niches too, it's like they've infected a good % of web (bit extreme i know, but it feels like it)

    From what i can see, they do the following:
    1) Infect a site and plant a video, contextual content and related links (i just happened to be one of the "lucky" sites they used)
    2) PUMP them HARD with backlinks
    3) Wait until the page is cached or longer (can't tell)
    4) Redirect url 1 to their own domain

    I won't out their main url here but check out some of the pages already redirecting to their offer and you'll see the site who is doing it!

    I'll help you out, check out this page that's already been redirected:
    http://www.communityactionsuffolk.o...ew/online/trading-goptions-binary-options.php

    I've setup a serpbook track to see if it brings nice results, for those of you that see this days/weeks/months after this is posted you should see if it worked for them or not:
    http://serpbook.com/serp/?viewkey=blwi6q6&auth=a8c736a6e2c293396e8c0f6232e4086a

    VERY nice blackhat trick, ive never seen anything on this scale before and was wondering what everything thinks about this?

    What do you think the outcome will be for their site?

    I know i'll get tanked hard (since their slowly redirecting the infecting pages to their site) but i really have to take my hat off to these guys!

    It's like being raped by the hottest girl in the world and being left feeling used and abused but in a sick way you don't really mind...!!!

    If anyone can shed some light on this i would REALLY appreciate it, hopefully you wont have to dig too deep to find out the bigger picture!

    I'm not sure what your trying to show here.

    Lucky no... does it help me short term, yes!

    But you need to go much deeper than just the site i showed you, they have done it with hundreds and thousands of sites and using them all as a mass blackhat link pool

    I was trying to point out their method (never seen anything this big in BH) and discuss that rather than how screwed i'm going to be when Google slap the hell out of my site and send it to the dungeon, luckily i don't need seo on that site so im not that bothered.

    OP, no one is replying to you because that's not blackhat - that's hacking and the folks behind it should be lined up and shot - they infect and use other peoples websites to rank and usually ruin them in the process. You normally see it with Pharma rather than forex and you can tell by the trail Viagra and other pharma related links. My sites have be pinging me left and right with brute force attempted break ins for the past couple of weeks and I bet it is these clowns.

    I suggest that if you value your site, you should 404 the hidden page they've created and find the Trojan(s) and backdoors and otherwise tighten up your security; especially if you are on shared hosting as you are putting your neighbors at some risk of infection as well.

    Ahhh of course, that makes sense now that it's of course illegal.

    I guess they went one step further than just blackhat.

    I think you got the wrong end of the stick though, they havent hacked me at all, they just used my site as one of their "Related Links" that they posted within the content that they planted. So they have actually been creating backlinks for me which is why i'm ranking top now, not for long i know, but still.

    I totally agree that they will ruin the sites they hack, not only are they hacking them but their throwing millions of links to each domain they hack and causing a REAL mess. Seems a bit of a waste to me for ranking for binary options, the organic traffic isn't exactly a lot...

    Shame noone wants to talk about it.

    Anyway, just thought i'd share it with you guys! :)

    Happy Marketing!!

    This is nothing new, viagra, pay day loans, etc are ranked with hacked sites. It won't help your site at all.

    Looks like they might have used an Apache vulnerability:

    If you have an Ahrefs account, take a look at your outbound links - I'll bet you'll be unpleasantly surprised.

    I'd keep an eye on it as they may not have yet activated their code. Normally (on a wordpress site) they'll create a hidden page that won't be visible in the admin area.

    I had one site infection via a SQL inject from a event calendar plugin and locked the rest of sites down as completely as I could after a lot of research. Once bitten twice shy. I almost lost what was at the time a $200 PBN site and would now be closer to a $500 PBN site.

    google must eliminate it completely

    He's been SAPE hacked. Plain and simple. Roll you site back and report it to Google.
