    Does CJ allow forced clicks like this?
    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&l...r-purchase.com

    This ******* has who-knows-how-many domains clogging up search results pages like this.

    http://www.google.com/search?num=100...es&btnG=Search

    Also serves as more proof that Google is F'ed up pretty bad.

    This is just despicable. I reported all the sites I could find to Google. Hopefully this person gets dumped immediately. I'm going to follow up in a few days to see if my spam report was effective. Feel free to do the same so we can get this garbage out of the results:

    http://www.google.com/contact/spamreport.html

    And be sure to mention each of these domains:

    hyper-purchase.com
    everyday-objects.com
    mega-purchase.com
    sell-sale.com
    easymatter.com
    super-vendor.com
    your-bargain.com
    virtual-deal.com
    new-get.com

    There could be more, but these are the ones I saw covering the URL from NoWires.

    If somebody is in communication with the Zappos affiliate manager they should be alerted right away so they can close this affiliate's account.

    Pretty bad. Same servers, hidden behind Domains by Proxy.

    Spammer at work. It's so sad. We're far from affiliate marketing.
    Some are calling that smart marketing!

    I can hear already Zappos affiliates complaining about their sales.

    You can add new-bargain.com & your-catch.com to your list but there's more.
    super-vender.com, unidentified-objects.com

    This guy will get caught. Google will clean up their SERPs and next month we'll see an other one, two or more... Depressing.

    If you have a Google account, it means you're signed in.

    you'd think at some point NQ would catch this kinda crap. It would be interesting to find out if this publisher will now be forced to payback any commissions generated.

    a search for the pid that is shown on one of the pages has been indexed with no description, page title or anything else 174 times in google. the funniest part is how bad google ate the site up? (to many comments to say, all withheld)

    Google 1 - 10 of about 19,200 from new-get
    Yahoo 1 - 10 of about 1,480 from new-get
    MSN We couldn't find any results



    (1409561) mods if showing a pid is against the rules please edit my post, but it's shown so that other advertisers can see and react if need be.

    add:
    cjb.net
    more-thing.com, who has placed an rss feed into yahoo
    us.rd.yahoo.com/my/atm/pub@more-thing.com/Shoes

    how deep does the rabbit hole go?

    Hundreds of these SERP doorway spam pages also setup with trademark violating sub-domains all force setting Zappos cookies at www.everyday-objects.com www.sell-sale.com or www.mega-purchase.com www.super-vender.com to go along with all the other trademark doorway template site SERP spammers using Zappos feeds + cookie setting redirects.

    You gotta love the typical shoe brand name and trademark spammer targeting hundreds of other merchants with keyword stuffed interior landing pages... http://www.securesearch.org/discount_shoes/index.html

    www.virtualget.com www.deal-cars.com all have 18,000 plus trademark subdomains just spamming the hell out of Google with forced click redirects for every search term. The same group also automates cookie stuffing search spam for other merchants in various categories.

    When I try to go to any of the url's mentioned I get page can not be displayed.

    Did the jerk get toasted already? One can only hope!

    You're right, none of the links are working anymore.
    It can be done only at the server or host level. Google, CJ or Zappos can't be that fast.
    It's quite strange. You make a post at ABW and next day the spammer is gone.
    Wake Up. We must be dreaming!

    If the spammer is an ABW member it could explain why the sites are gone. He doesn't want us to expose him. He can be found easily with his PID at CJ.

    once the pid is known ;-).


    I saved a copy of the source from one of his pages if it's ever needed, as it seems that he/she has removed the source from what I was looking at. So your right it has nothing to do with any network activity.

    Heck I have a hard time just getting into google (never made it in DMOZ), and staying there. I guess I just don't have the knack.

    Angry
    The real members here who lookout for fellow ABWers buried this cookie stuffing buttwipe in spam reports at several search engines. Zappos, if they give a crap, owes ABW bigtime and best we hear they hired Ms. B to purge their program of the other similar SERP spamming cookie stuffers.

    LOL - you guys are pathetic. Get your arses kicked in the serps and you all come together for a big group cry. People who run around reporting pages to google should be beaten with a bat.
    The monkey who is wondering why is email address is showing at the top of google is the biggest twit. 3k posts and cant recognise his gmail addy lol

    I can't stand narks either, but face it, if you can't make a decent profit without cookie-stuffing even if you 0wn the SERPs, that's pretty darned sad.

    Exactly - the cookie crushing is the problem. If you've read other threads in the past few days, you would also have heard the starter of this topic state that he doesn't give a damn what others do to gain SE rankings.
