cloaking black hatYesterday we reported about Google targeting PBNs with massive manual actions. The funny thing, Google's PR team would not confirm or deny it but Google's Matt Cutts, who is currently on an extended vacation, took the time out to taunt and mock black hat SEOs.

Keep in mind, this is part of Google's strategy, they want to break the spirits of black hat SEOs.

Matt Cutts wrote on Twitter "Blackhat SEO fads: like walking into a dark alley, packed with used car salesmen, who won't show you their cars." He references the story I wrote on Search Engine Land on the PBNs.

Seems like Matt is almost ready to come out of early retirement or his extended vacation and get back to work. This tweet from Matt comes a couple hours before Matt says he still searches for spammy queries these days.
