    A Guide to Spamdexing - Stuffing that Turkey

    (Page 3 of 4 )

    Used in conjunction with hidden text, keyword and meta-tag stuffing are outdated techniques. Meta-tag stuffing involved stuffing as many keywords as you could in the keyword element. This method has been useless since around 2005.

    Keyword stuffing, too, has gone the way of the cuckoo. For instance, if your page contains 1000 words, and 900 of those are the same word, your keyword density will be out of kilter. The recommended keyword density is between four and eight percent.

    Scraper Sites

    Scraper sites take data from other websites and post it on their own web page, claiming it to be original material. In its worst form, these sites will take entire articles from another, high ranking site, and post them on their own. In other forms, random words from a dictionary are placed on a page, alongside ads for specific keywords, in the hopes that users will see the ad as the only text that makes sense, and click it, thus generating revenue for the spammer.

    Oddly enough, Google offers a form of this service to its users. While not technically the same, their Domain Parking program allows domain owners the opportunity to earn revenue by having ads posted on their parked pages.

    Scraping a site without permission from the author, or without giving credit to the author in the case of GNU Free Documentation License and Creative Commons licenses, is considered a form of copyright violation.
