Well I must confess that I did indeed report a site,or rather sites.All traced to same owner that occupies 18 of first 20 spots and uses every trick (spam) talked about in the forum and violates every term of agreement in googles list. All the sites are very close to being identical with a few words being different. All sites are crossed linked and have PR.It seemed so blantant I had to laugh and just had to report it to google to see what would be the results.--Low competive area. All still there 3 updates later. They are also a sponsored site.I have no competition with them.
I ran across them while watching another site I knew had been cloaking google for a least a year (along with a few other tricks) while gaining position (#1 in some keywords)1st page in several others while delevering NO content to users except keyword gibberish below affiliate links in a "very competive" area. No I did not report this site nor do I intend to. It is neither a sponsored site or do they buy adwords. "PR6" I do compete with them.
