    seeing a lot of these sites with my description and stuff kinda like the Sh0ps.com thing. Don't know if its a sh0ps.com kinda thing or they are just linking to my site:
    www.health-get.com/
    www.just-make-up-links.com/
    www.the-golf-pages.com/
    www.neatstuffhightech.com
    www.just-nutrition-links.com
    www.just-computer-links.com

    A bit of clicking around took me to this page

    http://www.just-digital-camera-links...ex_frames.html

    (There are tons like it in that "network" of sites only with different links)

    Mousing over some of the links in the main frame, I see he(?) didn't try to hide that the links are coming from Searchfeed.

    There may be more to it, but from this quick check I'd say it's a spamorific way to try to bring Google traffic through Searchfeed pay links.

    It also seems that the spammer will be disappointed if, as I suspect (due to some of the links I see), most of those links coming from Searchfeed are FREE filler listings...

    Theres also something else going on. I have a few product pages and for some products i see this:

    I type product into google and then see one of those sites like neatstuffhightech.com (which redirects to technoscout.com) show up with the product i made the page for and my url address in the description. Not sure.

    More fishy stuff!!

    For curiosity I searched for my name in Google (bored, I guess) and found 2 sites showing part of the text of one of my sites!

    But when I clicked on one from "acydrain.org" (Warning, popups etc!) it didn't have anything to do with my page--instead it's pushing a TOOLBAR!! Not only that, it picked up the search term and included it in the couple of lines of text on the visible page: "Links Related to [MyName]" and "Find [MyName] Using the FREE 2020Search Toolbar!"

    Another site doing the same exact thing is "caring4babieswithaids.org". (Warning popups etc.)

    Both of these showed some text from my site (along with a made-up title), but have this toolbar pitch on the actual page, so I figure they've got the page of text cloaked somehow.

    I didn't post the original link I found since it would give away some personal information, but here's another that shows a similar result (Warning--if you click it these jokers get all your system information like browser, IP, etc!!!): [Hopefully it's not too long to show]

    http://acydrain.org/results.htm?co=1&wtpref=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2Fsearch%3Fhl%3Den%26lr%3Dlang_en%26ie%3DUTF-8%26oe%3DUTF-8%26safe%3Doff%26q%3Drelated%3Awww.acydrain.org%2Frace-car-radiator.htm&pop=&eng=0&query=related+www.acydrain.org%2Frace-car-radiator.htm&wtpsite=acydrain.org&rel=car&srs=&clt=&wtpua=Mozilla%2F4.0+%28compatible%3B+MSIE+6.0%3B+Windows+NT+5.1%29&wtpip=

    Note that "wtpip=" at the end! Originally my IP address was after that part (I deleted it for posting)!

    The whois showed what appears to be cloaked info, but the city of Bradenton MO was visible. Whether this place is really anywhere near there is anyone's guess...

    A tiny mention at the bottom of the resulting page mentions "www.2020search.com" who apparently actually provides this "free search toolbar". I'm not sure just what their angle is yet, but FREE + TOOLBAR + COPYING/CLOAKING + SE SPAM gives me a big big clue!

    No laughing matter on this seneraio cloning variations of sh0ps.com perversion of affiliate marketing ...."but FREE + TOOLBAR + COPYING/CLOAKING + SE SPAM gives me a big big clue!"

    Sounds like we need to set some examples for the big time BHO players by shining some lights on the smaller rats in their sewer. Let's all put on some mouse rubbers and uncover the names and URLs of this perverted affiliate. Throwing a few of these characters into the public stockade for well deserved ridicule makes sense. Consider it letting off some stream as we clamor for cleaning up this industry.

    Let the affiliates, AM's, merchants and networks all help stomp on this one rather then sweep it under the carpet like sh0ps.com.
