I have seen Russian (?) groups do what you mentioned and it would be matching up to Google IPís. You can see the ru domains plus Ask, AOL, MSN and a few others if you look deep. Itís a fooler. What their purpose was I couldnít totally understand. Youíll suddenly get a tremendous burst in traffic and sometimes rankings. It normally only affects a few keywords. After it happened to me four times Iím certainly donít complain. All I know is someone certainly knows how to get traffic and exploit the Google algo. It was one of the few times I was hoping I would get e-mail from the company but didnít. We're all amateurs when it comes to what these people are doing.
