Spammers of late have been attempting to hide their sites behind other innocent sites. The best little trick they have come up with of late is to use the Google feature “I’m Feeling Lucky”. This feature essentially takes you strait to the top site in your Google search request. The aim of this is to get around Spam blacklists and filters. Unfortunately this method relies on their page being the top result.
Example of spam:
Order All of your favorite RxMeDs Online!Order__NoW ~ Click__Here
With fast discreet trackable USPS shipping!
No Prescription Needed!
Essentially what this does is an “I’m Feeling Lucky” search in Google for myvisameds global cart when the sucker (user) clicks on the Click Here they are ment to be taken to the site myvisameds.com. The site is supposedly trying to sell drugs like Viagra, Vicodin, Cialis, Valium, Soma, Xanax, Ultram, Ambien, Prozac, Meridia, Levitra, Zoloft, Nexium, and Propecia. The usual stuff you should have a prescription for and should go to your local chemist to buy. Not thats theres anything wrong with shopping online but seriously do you really know what your getting online.
This is very easy to change for the rest of use with legitimate pages as essentially all we need to is include their search phrase on our own page and boom if Google rates our site higher the spammers site, then the spam links go to our page instead.
Since adding this article check out how many stupid people have been trapped by this spam because I’ve included the search phrase on my site. This gives you some idea of how thick people can be.
