Not only that...
a redirect now rank #1 in a one word commercial query out of over 5M return.
Worst, the URL listed is not even in the index *huh?* It goes like this...
Description of widget
when clicked, it redirect to a major provider h*//major-widget.com/affliate=xxxxx
checking for the backlinks of e-widget-site.com reveals that the URL is not in the index.
checking for the cache of e-widget-site.com/index.htm breaks the cache and instant redirect, possibly cloaking.
The rest of the listings from 2-10 are using techniques that most would call spam.
What does this mean to us? I say...it's okay now to use cloaking, redirects with 200 status, frameset works great too. Use it and Google will reward you with higher ranking.
Just my observation ;)
