As an SEO, there’s nothing annoys me more than supposed SEO companies ripping off their clients by building spam links. It’s against Google’s TOS, it’s unethical, it’s black hat and, perhaps worse, it causes problems for the client further down the line – sometimes years down the line after they’ve ended their relationship with the spam company. If a website gets penalised at this stage there’s little they can do about it because the spam SEO company is unlikely to assist by removing the offending links. With Google’s Penguin update, this is an all too common occurrence as well.
Seeing as it annoys me so much (and gives SEO a bad name) I thought I’d help out any webmasters by highlighting one or two (OK, one hundred) websites owned by the same SEO company which are used for nothing more than building spam links. If you have a link from one, many or all of these websites show up in your link profile you may want to get them removed ASAP as your site could very well find itself penalised very soon.
So, in alphabetical order, here are 100 spam websites used by a black hat spam link building company. You’ll start to recognise a theme as you scan the URLs, as they all look pretty much the same, feature much the same content, are all hosted on the same hosting provider and all link to each other.
