thin content with link to ecom site.
I thought so. Thatís why I asked because of the index page problem you mention.
I've been observing people doing what you mention for about a year. More than a few brands use the methodology. From what I have seen it can be condensed more than you think. Some sites seem to vanish with Penguin updates but the pages reside about in the same positions you mention with the link building.
