Chinese Web Sites Back Infected Google's Search Results?

Oct 13, 2010 - 7:55 am 0 by

A WebmasterWorld thread reports that some are seeing web pages hosted in China infiltrating the Google search results.

Unlike the last major Chinese search spam attack, this time they are reportedly using non-Chinese TLDs. In the past, they used forms of .CN TLDs, now they are using .COM, .NET, .ORG, and so on. But the web pages are hosted in China and the whois data is owned by someone in China.

Tedster, WebmasterWorld's administrator, said:

Sounds like quite a cooperative network going on. I've seen something like this in one SERP a while back, but it didn't last too long.

Personally, I haven't seen them myself but another SEO said:

For lesser brands in our industry the top five spots are filled by Chinese knockoffs. The manufacturer in the US ranks well below the sites overseas. New and disturbing trend.
