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:

link netowrk

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 😉

  1. They probably already have it all figured out. Give them two weeks to lay the smackdown on these suckers.

    I hope it doesnt mess with my sites serps though. Im rocking the house at the moment.

  2. these peeps that are always gaming the system suck and do good. they cause google to make it google better.

  3. I’ve got no problem with people trying to do what they need to to get better rankings, but once you find something that is working shut the hell up about it!!! These morons kill me with all the bragging about how they can beat Google.

  4. I wonder why this guy is using theearlofrealestate.net when earlofrealestate.com is unregistered. Not that either of them are particularly good names, but this guy might have some reputation issues if some porn site gets ahold of earlofrealestate.com

  5. Maybe the rankings will last for a couple of weeks !! But honestly will always pay off at long term

  6. I agree with VaBeachKevin – if you find something that works, use it for a bit and don’t shout it to the world. OR politely tell Google (or whomever it is) about the loophole so that the system can be made stronger.

  7. BWAHAHAHAHA, Dipshit is pure comedy Shoe!
    So thumbs up or thumbs down to this system? I think I can guess the answer but we gotta hear from the man!

  8. for technology and distribution – thumbs up
    for marketing and business plan – thumbs down

  9. All spam techniques work for some amount of time. I use to rank sites using the alt image tag. That doesn’t work anymore.

  10. could you be any more obvious Peter?

    Who will be the first to get this domain and spam a pr0n wordpress blog on it?

    Double Dog dare ya!

  11. Something gives me the inclination that Google will quickly realise this is happening and make the algo’s different again. Which will inturn help the sites, that aren’t “cheating” to fire up the rankings with no work.

  12. Have to agree on that. Their marketing plan must be “launch…they will come” and as for their business plan don’t get me started 😉

  13. i agree google probably has 100 guys that are 100 times smarter than he is and they are paying them enough they only focus on google

  14. This is beyond hilarious: you’d think that people trying to fly under the radar would keep a low profile but no, they have to brag about it as well.

  15. Its amazing that so many people put so much energy into trying to con the system.

    I have been working online for years and the ONLY thing that holds true is still – QUALITY CONTENT + HARD WORK = GOOD SERPS!

  16. Amen! If you found a way to out evil the evil Google, don’t tell anybody about it.

  17. I don’t know, if Google wasn’t trying so incredibly hard to find any reason to keep sites out of their index, maybe people wouldn’t be trying to find a way around it. There’s a story every day about a legit site getting axed for no good reason.

  18. I always wonder the same thing. Why ask for a fight with someone more powerful than you? That is another reason I respect Greg, DaveN, etc. They never brag about what they are doing.

  19. People would always try to develop some sort of edge by whatever means necessary but again, bragging instead of just keeping a low profile and hoping that your attempt will remain unnoticed is just plain foolish.

  20. is it that hard to get 5th and 6th for those weak ass search terms. is it necessary to pay money to do this?

  21. Peter, not that I don’t like your idea of registering a porn site for that domain name, but what kind of weird fetish theme would one use for earlofrealestate.com lol.

    I agree that honesty will keep you up in the long run, but sometimes even Google needs a push. You just need to know when to put the black pirate hat down 🙂

  22. I don’t know why some people believe they are smarter than a group of people working for Google (and users reporting to Google)… I don’t know… I think it is a waste of time.

  23. even worse when they publicize what they are doing. like kids video taping themselves doing crimes…

  24. The content spooling network is an article marketing service. I don’t know anybody who thinks article marketing is scamming Google. Each submitted article will go to around 20 related sites and 20 or so external article directories… hardly worth a crackdown by Google.

    Content Spooling Network members are in it for the long-term. We don’t build value by exploiting a loophole… we do it by publishing content to related websites.

  25. True. It’s hilarious. I guess people dont realize they can exploit it to make a huge amount if they didnt blab.

  26. Yeah, I’m not really sure why people think this is so funny or even newsworthy. Networks like this have been around for awhile, including this one which has probably been around for at least a year.

    So in terms of black hat, grey hat, and white hat….I would say this leans more towards white hat when you compare it to other tactics. Trading content with other webmasters has never been a bad thing. That’s essentially what shoemoney does when he has patel come on here.

    besides, i’m not totally convinced that theearlofrealestate.com is the site that’s actually inside the network.

  27. I’m pretty sure it’s the real estate site. Just follow the articles link, and you’ll see the good old category structure you found in so many link exchange programs, just instead of directory style links they’re in the article content. Go to the sites linked to, and they all have the similar structure. Chris may say they’re related articles, but not sure how Car stereo articles relate to a real estate site. In looking at one of these, I also found a scraper site that was pulling the article without the links.

    I don’t really have a problem with people trying these approaches, it’s just don’t try to spin what you’re doing as being anything other than an automated link exchange.

  28. As always, they will be catch by google. No use waisting time with these.
    What people don’t realize is that original content, even one article is more valuable that thousand of links with little or no value.

  29. Google has been wonderful in every sense of the word. It has done so much and has provided significant help through its innovations. I hipe it continues to do its job well.

  30. I don’t see how this is any different from regular article marketing.

    You write an article and submit it to CSN. It is reviewed by CSN (using Amazon Mechanical Turk). If the article is approved it is then distributed by CSN to standard article directories and several other web sites that have indicated that they are interested in accepting articles on that topic.

    Just like regular article marketing you get to place a link to your own site in the resource section at the bottom of the article. Some web sites and article directories also accept links within the article itself. CSN takes care of formatting the article and removing links as required by each site that the article is submitted to.

    If you call EzineArticles.com, and other articles directories and article submission services, “cooperative linking systems” then I guess you can place CSN in that category too.
