Blackhat SEO “Expert” Goes To Jail

Filed under: web design — Tags: , ,

I have written many times before about using tricks to get your site to the top of the search engines.
See this, or just search this blog for SEO.
I believe that it’s always harder, but better to do it right.

I read last week about the CEO of Traffic Power getting jail time and again today on Google’s Matt Cutts blog. Matt makes a very good point that if someone is willing to take any measure, including shady ones, to get you to the top of the search engine results pages who knows what other unscrupulous things they are willing to do.

There can be good money in SEO both for the site owner and the SEO company so there will probably always be snake oil salesmen. I think that I find fewer of the “bad guys” these days and that’s a good thing for everyone.
