Beware Hosting Providers Inserting Links Into Your Content


Rogue host changing customers’ websites
over at SEO Forum is an interesting
read and warning to those to watch their hosting service. What’s PhilC describes
there is a hosting company that was unbeknownst to clients was apparently
inserting links at the bottom of client pages to benefit the host. The
screenshots

tell the tale much better. Apparently, the tactic was supposed to be
stopped but started again.

Moral for anyone? Look at the cached pages you have in the major search
engines. They’ll show you what the search engine spider saw — and any links
that you might not realized were cloaked without permission to feed to the
spiders.
