Incredibly this has worked! Although when you think about it makes sense, as lots of people link to you when they complain about your site.
Surprisingly really I’d never thought of it, I guess it is because I just think this is so unethical the possibility of this tactic never even entered my mind…
Sadly/fortunately this doesn’t work now, as Google has adjusted their algorithm for it which is how I found out about this story:
The New York Times drew Google’s attention to the problem.
According to the Times story, the owner of DecorMyEyes.com boosted his site’s prominence in search rankings by generating negative reviews from customers. And the prominent placement of the site in search rankings generated more business, so says the owner of DecorMyEyes.
Naturally Google hasn’t revealed the details of the adjustment to its algorithms, but I dare say we’ll be noticing it? And with time hints might come out from the shifts in the rankings as to exactly what they might have done.
Riiiiight, so the solution to the flaw with google (in their search results) is to use another google product?!?!
