Did this raise a flag at Google? Was it 'clocked' and let go?
Or were they completely unaware?
No proof either way, but my own view is that they were ignorant they were being gamed.
.. and in my view they simply didn't care. I am not saying they are ignorant, they are simply not looking the big brands way until they have no choice. JCP, OS, BestBuy, Walmart ranking high - good for Google.
