    While I'm sure the candidate in particular wasn't responsible for that, it shows you need to be careful when outsourcing anything. And as an honorable SEO practitioner, I've learned to walk away from people that want to rank for a term "at all costs".

    Black hat is still black hat, and I like the fact that Google penalizes it.
