    Hey guys,
    Was just checking some top CB products, and saw that tao of badass thingy at the top, so was checking out what people are doing to promote it...

    G search Keyword = the tao of badass

    Result no. 4-5 = badasstao[dot]info

    This is a pure 301 redirect to the main CB vendor's site!

    So how does this rank in the serps??? How is this possible? Or is it a temporary hit-n-run case?

    I think the Redirect is in place for not less than a week. Lets say the site was already coming ranking SERP and this guy has just redirected it in last 7 days or so. It wont remain in serp for long. My 2 cents.

    Normally,after the 301 redirected was finished,then just wait until the homepage indexed by google or do some job to make the main page indexed first. Some high quality backlinks should be made either.

    Might be cloaking.

    They simply use a cloaking technique to differentiate google crawler from humans.

    Give it some time, the site that got the redirection will replace the current one.

    No need to put that domain on blast; chances are the domain belongs to someone from here.

    He is cloaking. If you change your browser's User Agent to match Google bot's user agent, you'll see a wordpress page instead of a redirection. I did this in the past while i was cheating Adwords.

    I think this site is using more sophisticated cloaking algorithm rather than user-agent only, otherwise it will be busted soon. Sometime Googlebot crawl sites with a fake useragent.
