    take a look at this site

    h**p://www.electronicchurch.org/

    Looks like a fairly innocent site right but take a look at the footer links

    Viagra Online, Buy Valium etc.

    Is this like a rogue black hatter in the church or how the hell is this even done

    PM me if you don't want to publish but this just seems incredible, no matter how many times i email the church they won't accept my buy viagra links :)

    It might have been hacked by a third party, and the original owners just haven't realized yet.

    That's pretty funny.. the site is talking about churches, pastors and stuff..and the footer says it straight: Viagra, Cuban Cigars, Valium, Poker.. makes perfect sense.

    You go to church to pray to God to win the tonight's poker game. You get some cuban cigars to look like a fancy player, but you lose at poker so the ebooks you've read aren't good. Therefore, u gotta take some Valium to chill down, but then you change your mind and consider that some Viagra should work better. The one piece that missed there, was one of those ebooks about how to get your ex back, and puzzle would've been complete, lol.

    Long live the internetz xD

    PR is 6 boys..that's why =)

    no chance, i was looking at reverse engineering some of the techniques used for the buy viagra keyword and found all these link injected sites pointing to the top results

    I can understand how you might hack one or two high PR sites, but whoever has done this has managed to hack on mass a whole host of high PR websites and they are not even on a common platform such as wordpress...

    That is some smart ass shit...anybody reckon they know even a bit of how this is done?

    the only connection i can see is that they all seem to have a cpanel (by putting /cpanel after the url, could this be something to do with it?

    You people have it all wrong..

    Look at the PR.. a pr of 6 is valuable, it is simply a booster site. or sold link

    They own the site. They managed to register a .org domain after making a fictitious organization. Noone likes to reject churches. Look at the order button. Look at the graphics, its a bad screenshot and paste job.

    The exploit is most prevalent in shared hosting environments. The point of entry is usually a compromised script in one of the accounts hosted in the compromised server.

    Look at the site closely it is simply part of a link pyramid. It has few pages and they seem to be trying to sell churchy type books. All in all not a hell of a lot of content but without the viagra and associated links it looks completely legit.

    1500 links in according to YSE many of which seem to be quality sites like wikipedia and edu. Even some churches in there obviously linking back to what they see as unique material.

    My guess this is part of a long term strategy which they have nursed up to PR6 before dropping their main money links onto it.

    There is probably something to be learned in this strategy if anyone has the time to dissect the linking pattern and follow it off.

    I counted about 8 wiki links in the first 50 results. I think this serves to prove that despite being no follow G attaches quite some importance to them. In my neighbourhood they rank 1 for US church yearbooks.

    As I say not so much about flogging shitty yearbooks but the capacity to get a page to a level of a hell of a lot of trust within the G environment and then dropping a few very highly competitive KW onto it.

    In fact its quite brilliant I think!!

    Edit to add...Follow the purchase yearbook links from the home page.... It goes to a impressive looking sales page with prices and links to paypal... Except there are no links to paypal no one can buy these even if they wanted to;)

    The Delicio info says the first mention of this site was in April 2006 so clearly a log term project......

    I do like your thinking allthough i'm not convinced.

    If it were just one page this had been done to then i would believe it but look at all the following

    PR6
    h**p://www.alacademia.org/
    h**p://www.dnjtw.com/
    h**p://www.electronicchurch.org/
    h**p://www.ldams.org/
    h**p://www.learnandserve.org/
    h**p://www.nicholaspiramal.com/
    h**p://www.socallawblog.com/
    h**p://www.wb56.com/
    PR5
    h**p://auroraforum.org/
    h**p://biopact.com/
    h**p://carbonneutraldigest.com/
    h**p://carbonneutraldigest.com/?p=203
    h**p://carbonneutraldigest.com/?p=305
    h**p://carbonneutraldigest.com/?p=576
    h**p://ncrcafe.org/
    h**p://ng-junior.com/
    h**p://soma.realityhacking.org/
    h**p://www.1000websitetools.com/
    h**p://www.afghancommunicator.com/

    h**p://www.beersoaksamerica.org/

    h**p://www.bornmagazine.com/
    h**p://www.bouchercon2009.com/
    h**p://www.bta-bg.net/
    ?and so on

    Surely this must be some sort of exploit as this list of high PR sites goes on and on

    What do other people think?
