    Just got this from ViperChill...


    "Are you curious what would happen if you built 3 million backlinks to an internal page of your site in just six months? Does the site get penalised or do the links actually work?

    Well, I don't want to give too much away without you clicking the link, but let's just say I wouldn't write thousands of words about it if they just got penalised like you might expect.

    There's a new flaw that is working very well with Google's current algorithm, and I've just exposed it in a new blog post."


    Dr. Houzz Reveals a Widget-Flawed Google Algorithm
    On January 28th you may recall that I did a huge blog post on why I'm building a bigger link network. In that post I showed in great detail how Godaddy were utilising customers who are using their SSL services and getting top search rankings by adding anchor-text-rich backlinks in the widgets that clients place on their websites.

    About a month after my blog post, Godaddy dropped back to page two for all of the terms they were ranking number one for. Even though they dropped off the radar slightly, the SSL certificates niche is still an industry I watch with great interest because it's one where big brands can get away with doing pretty much anything they want (unless someone calls them out on it?).

    The latest update from that industry is pretty bold: Symantec have since taken over all of Godaddy's rankings and they're doing the exact same thing, having amassed almost 3 million backlinks in the last 7 months.
