How to get links from .gov sites with high PageRank
There's a new trick that some webmasters use to get high
rankings on Google. Just like the trick we mentioned in a previous issue
of our newsletter, this new technique exploits security holes
of other web sites.
How does this trick work?
Just by adding a special extension to an URL of a government
site, you can put any web site in a frame set of the government
site. That means that the framed web site will get a link
from the government site.
In this screenshot, you see CNN.com framed on a page of
the United States Department of Agriculture web site (a PR7
site). If that link was indexed by Google, CNN.com would
have received a PR7 link from that site.
CNN.com can easily be framed on the http://www.fsis.usda.gov site
by entering a special page URL on http://www.fsis.usda.gov with
a CNN.com extension.
This technique has been successfully used by a web site
selling popular blue drugs. The web site could achieve a
top 10 ranking for an extremely popular medical search term
It seems that this technique works. Should you use
We highly recommend not to use this technique. Just like
all spam techniques, you can only achieve short-term results
with it. In addition, it's probably illegal to frame your
web site into a government web site.
Google has already discovered the problem. If you don't
want to be banned from Google, you should not use this technique.
If you want to get long-term results, you should use ethical
search engine optimization methods. Build a web site
with great content, make
it easy for search engines to index your web pages and
get good inbound
Web sites that have all of that get great rankings on Google,
Yahoo and all other search engines.
