Michael Gray "tries" to stay away from things like this, but when he sees people use a widely read medium to spread misinformation, without doing their research first, it makes his blood boil. What did Christina Warren say here’s a look...

This being from the same person that asked for a mourning period over a torrent site going dead.  http://www.downloadsquad.com/2007/11/10/another-one-bites-the-dust-demonoid-is-dead/Not that I’m saying I’m against file sharing, but what kind of idiot praises torrents and can logically diss SEO...

thats just plain funny I don’t care who you are.I especially like this quote:"To us, the type of SEO attacks revealed this week are only a few steps away from what tons of bloggers/websites do every day: purposely try to game search engines just so they can get more hits to their site, and by extension, maybe make a few extra dollars."if you’ll kindly redirect some of that AOL traffic I will be happy to stop attempting to "game" the system.when will people finally realize that essentially SEO= Online Marketingbut I guess it matters not because SE0> marketing>sales... and we all know selling things is bad.laughable.

<sarcasm>She is obviously well-educated and takes her work seriously.</sarcasm>This probably stems from a deep bitterness she feels at being technically incompitent and unable to understand even the most basic of SEO concepts.  Oh well, good for a laugh...

I’m about to call out Yaro Starak... not about SEO but about something else.  Stay tuned.

"inserting back-door code that is aimed at getting higher page ranks and more page views, regardless if the targets are actually correct, is another. To us, the type of SEO attacks revealed this week"Wolf is correct - not only is she clueless but she’s way behind the times which is outdated cluelessness, ugh.Inserting back-door code has been going on for a couple of years now that I’m aware of and the people that do these things aren’t your garden variety SEOs. Besides, I was tracking some activity along these lines about a year ago that appeared to be linked to some form of organized crime so it’s most likely not an operation she wants to mess with.

Inflamatory headline, closed comments and request to link to the post instead.  Kudos to him for doing such a good job on the link bait.

OMG - did you see that one of her blog tags is "seo poisoning"? What a light-weight. I couldn’t help but leave a comment.

I realize I’m a little late to the conversation, but I feel like I should comment. Yeah, she might have been a bit harsh, but she specifically did not lump the entire SEO industry into one group here. I read down in the comments of her post and found this from her:I certainly don’t mean to "slam an entire industry;" as I stated in the original post: "Techniques to make sure your relevant content shows up in corresponding searches is one thing -- inserting back-door code that is aimed at getting higher page ranks and more page views, regardless if the targets are actually correct, is another."I understand that most of us in the online marketing industry tend to get lumped in with spammers pretty frequently. It’s the first thing I have to say when I tell a friend that I’m in that line of work (no, I’m not a spammer). But we should also be careful to not have such knee-jerk reactions.
