    I did a search on for

    "create your own diamond rings" without the quotes.

    After clicking on the first listing, I get redirected to another page which has nothing to do with the search term.

    How do these websites getaway with this stuff?

    I went there and I got a blank page because I have my security settings to prohibit running Activex controls, so I won't be able to see pages like that.

    I view the source code on that blank page and I see that they are using macromedia but, before the line that calls the ( there is a link to another jewelry store with some movie.swf file.

    Google doesn't detect Java redirects, as far as I am aware

    So the common way to do this is to build a content site that gets spidered but simply redirect the traffic from Google before it lands on the page

    These guys should be reported to Google and removed, however my experience this year in sending such requests to Google is that nothing will be done.

    Hey Mr. Sal, you up late tonight

    I pressed escape on that page and basially, it has:

    1 href tag with the above search term
    2 h1 tag with the above search term
    10 img src tags with alt tags including similar keyphrases as the above search term
    10 more href tags with anchor text including the same keyphrases as the above search term
    yes, it also calls a .swf file

    Ultimately, the page will redirect even though I had presses escape.

    It takes me to a google adwords page and looking at the blank page I see links to 13 or so other pages, also all google adwords. Bet they have thousands of these and are making a mint.

    This site is using Smart Pages with a redirect
    using Flash. I also have my ActiveX set to
    prompt, so I get a prompt where I have to
    physically allow ActiveX before I get taken
    to the page. I wonder if the new Windows
    XP upgrade (Service Pack 2) which is making
    changes to how ActiveX works will effect this?

    These guys do need reporting to Google as the cached copy is being re-directed so it is all a bit iffy.
