For a long time, if you asked me about spamming the search engines, whether with hardcore black hat tactics or merely gray hat link acquisition, I'd say that in the long run, neither was the right move. Building a great site and a great brand through hard work, white hat links, solid content and marketing strategies has always been my path of choice. It still is today, but my faith is definitely wavering.

I noticed spam is getting towards the top of Google in my niche as well. And it's pretty competitive niche. I'm afraid that if this continues I'll be forced to start building junk links myself.

The worst part is I will see my content {text, pics, even links} on an MFA site ranking higher than me. Google should have web bots that can detect it is an MFA web page. For example, it has lots of ads for pawrn & cawsino. Also, the sites almost always are promoting see alice and dating services. Hey, guess as long as they are making money; they do not care.
