I've seen today few websites which have a top spots in google/yahoo and when you enter this websites you're redirected straight to affiliate program

BUT when i looked at cache i saw whole page with keywords etc

so looks like someone is doing nasty trick, send google/yahoo robots to proper page with SEO etc (to get top spots in search) but redirecting all humans to affiliate programs

question is: how ? hmm maybe simple trick in htaccess, when referer use firefox/chrome/ie then redirect

so bots would hit proper page to cache it and put in rankings but humans would be moved straight to affiliate program..

Good for domains that can be burned... Not good if you plan to keep your domain.

When you find sites using dirty tricks, simply click on the "Give us feedback" link at the bottom of the Google search results page, and report the site(s). Google *will not* usually take immediate action, but will use the reports to tune their algorithms and filters. This could take months, or even a year.
