I got tipped off earlier this week (while traveling) about a new coopertive linking system that is disguised as a article distribution system powered by Amazon Mechanical Turk.
AWS Developer Chris Crompton has built the Content Spooling Network (CSN) using Amazon Mechanical Turk. CSN has modularized the entire ghostwriting process into discrete tasks and leverages Mechanical Turk workers to complete them. Using this methodology, CSN is able to provide this service to hundreds of webmasters each week allowing them to drive more traffic to their sites and further monetize their web properties.
The homepage for the content/ghostwriting service actually talks very little about their article service but focuses more on the SEO value for such a service:
From the first page testimonial:
Sure enough currently the dipshit from theearlofrealestate.com, who is bragging about his SEO rankings by using the Google manipulating system, ranks tops for his Real Estate terms:
5th for Northern Virginia Real Estate
3rd for Northern Virginia condos
But the question would be then… Can Google detect and fingerprint the links to them? Well most of them are article databases/directories which I assume Google as discredited a long time ago… But the blogs will be a little bit harder to track down. I have found a few small fingerprints for them which I am sure anyone reading with a few minutes can track down also
