I read a blog entry about a company that offers software to generate fake genie information just to create "content" and feed search engines.

Aren't some people creative when it comes to spamming SE indexes?

Hmmm. Creative is one way to put it. I might use less favorable descriptions.

I have no issue with those who use extra effort to get to get higher in the SERP's as long as the end result is relavant to the user (though I personally tend toward the conservative approach). But when people pull stuff like this, it is not good for the user or the Web. Blech.

Same dude that made ArticleBot. I'm sure there are plenty of people who'd love to meet him in a dark alley.

caveman: sorry, I did not realize that leaving the word creative without quotation marks might make it sound as something positive. Of course, none of SE users are happy with the "products" of that software.

TheRookie: Ouch. Haven't heard of the guy before, and did not know that my poor little humble niche got attention from a "high profile" SEO expert - with a record. At least I know now that there might be some money to be made in the niche, if he decided to join it.

Not like SE users waiting for the opportunity in the dark alley, there could actually be some who use the product with success, too.

Do you mean it's okay to do it?

It's not against the law. Just stop doing it if your palms begin to grow hair or your eyesight gets worse.

Stuff like this is like matches in the hands of children. Don't play with this near any of your websites you don't want getting burned. Creativity is beautiful.

radix no need to apologize, but I confess without the quotes, I prolly took it in a way other than what you meant. Either way, no worries mate. Some of my best friends are spammers. :-) In fact...oh, nevermind.
