hi,
did anyone try this approach...
Fooling the search engine to believe yu have millions of pages ..imagine scrambling semantics to generate new pages on the fly and having a link on every page which when crawled generates a new page scrambled from a random page on website with a link back to main page ... the spider gets fresh content every time ..what is the theoretical take on this ...
No i am not for it, ( have over 2000 pages myself ) but has anyone tried this idea .. :-)
or it is too naive :-(..just thought of sharing it ..lemme know your opinion.

i don't think it can lead to a ban..a legitimate link and legitimate pages in fact if taken from a deet database and with a suitable algorithm for connectivity i don't think the se's are as advanced as yet. a pair of phrases with the fault seeminlgy unblemished by preposition... the anchor text for the link changing everytime ..can't see if the se could find that out..
cheers

Google is currently flooded with loads of sites like this... it's an old trick that works in the short term.

So long as people will be able to monetise the traffic, this kind of spam will continue to be tried.
