Lol im guessing this post was to make a point .........

Aaron Wall is a top seo - He has helped us at Ozami quite a bit - im sure he has hundreds of people link to his site naturally -

A) Because of the content.
B) Because of who he is.

BTW - fully reccomend his seo book (http://www.seobook.com) If you havn't read it yet.

Actually I had no idea who he was....I saw a post earlier where someone was looking to report a spam site to yahoo.....then in a search today I saw on of those pages using the mouseover java redirect...I thought the SE's had caught on to this but appearently not.....so I decided to report it myself...but didn't know where to go in yahoo....so I googled it....how odd is that using google to find out where to report spam to yahoo :)

I'm also seeing alot of sites in the yahoo index that are using hidden divs packed with keywords and no code to even make the div visible....just trying to get a fair shake.....I'm not a SEO vigilante ;)

I actually sent about a dozen spam reports to Google about a Chicago seo company the was spamming very badly on their site, as well as their client's sites. About a month later I noticed a nice little gray bar and no more listings.

:-)

No proof that I was the only one reporting them though...

assuming that you are the only one reporting... It took a dozen reports to get them banned? :lol:
OMG. it takes effort to get a spam site banned too!

Well I found them on numerous different top searches so I made sure to make a report for each one.

It was a slow week... :-/
