    Well... maybe this site is the reason for so many of the bad SE placements I've had recently..

    ..the site claims that it takes the URL you enter and submits it multiple times to different search engines so they get blacklisted for spamming.

    See what I mean at [Removed Link [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] ]

    It's frankly disgraceful! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    Perhaps this site should be reported to Geocities and some of the major search engines. Life is tough enough without being banned for spamming by a competitor.

    Well, I reported them to Yahoo/Geocities, but even if Yahoo kills them, I suspect they'll just move to another provider. This is one to watch.

    Ouch...this is bad...I've never seen somebody offer this service like this. I have heard of people submitting to thousands of search engines and entering somebody elses e-mail address...when a search engine bans, do they always ban urls or do they ban via the submission IP. I thought if you submitted too much, it was the IP that was logged an it would reject future submissions...

    Jimbo got it.. I'd post the link again and ask you to look MORE carefully if it didn't offend Haiko.

    Sorry that I am editing the link, but I feel I have to.

    Okay, some people seem to think this is a joke (unless I'm missing that too)...

    WHAT IS THE JOKE??

    [why does this feel so much like a typical nerd day in highschool?]

    So... the only way to KNOW it is a joke is to try it? How the devil were we supposed to know?

    [I wasn't popular in highschool, either]

    If you view source code you will see the action tag says form action=spammer.html

    Now that the secret is out, just try submitting without entering a url (or look at the source). That's what I did [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Looks like a great experiment in viral marketing to me [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Folks that is what I call brilliant marketing. Imagine if we thought up ideas that got that much attention to our websites. This thing is spreading like the flu. :cool:
