1. Keyword exploits in domain name;
2. Keyword exploits in content;
3. Keyword exploits in source code - description, image alt attribute, etc.

Though Julie Dodds is listed as counselor in several sources and seem to be legit counselor and site seems to be clean from trackers, personally for me site does not build any trust because of above stated reasons and amount of diplomas and certificates. I'm not going to rate it and negatively influence rating for possibly good business but with a bit strange approach in presentation.

http://www.mywot.com/en/user/795709/track. I think I have to change my mind and rate site after all. Red it is.

That's attempt to oversaturate website with same keywords that are either irrelevant to content or are to broad in scope hoping to get better search results. I treat it as spam. As for danger- it shows owner as unprofessional, that hints for poor service. Well at least that's my experience.

#1 What is a "keyword exploit" and how does it endanger visitors to blue_nexus's site?

#2 Your scorecard comment is about spamming this forum, yet the "Spam" category has to do with spamming the public. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong about this. If i'm right, please amend that comment to the "Other" category or delete it altogether.

Where in the WOT guidelines does it say we are rating for dumb SEO? If she spams Google, only her site ranking will suffer.

"keywords"

Let's say I place the following keywords on every page of a site:

Code: Select all

Aenean aliquam sollicitudin risus, in molestie nunc rutrum vel. Donec a posuere libero. Nullam quis nisl enim, eu cursus mauris. Nunc varius nunc eget erat faucibus suscipit. Curabitur convallis, felis in faucibus condimentum, est ligula consectetur magna, eu venenatis augue lectus sed mi. Nam bibendum quam quis erat luctus hendrerit.

I use a DIV container set it's position to (+/-)5000 and set it's visibility to hidden
You'd only see it via page source, but nowhere on any site page.

This does not affect safety for a visitor, nor is it obnoxious because it's off the view port. It contains no malicious code, links, or redirects. It's simply [poor] page design. If we were to rate sites based on their design and not their visible content, etc... I would have to rate all Flash sites very poor, personally I can't stand them, as well as older sites that styled page content by bastardizing use of TABLE elements.

Now if those "keywords" were links to other owner related sites... well, that's another discussion.

@ g7w,

"If we were to rate sites based on their design and not their visible content . . . "
Yes, rating on design is wayyyyyyy out of the WOT purpose!

@ Myxt,

Yes, I can't see rating for "dumb SEO" . . . or "dumb" anything if it relates to something other than safety.

None of you spared a second reading between the lines. I believe I said quite clear- it's first sign of being unprofessional. Want Proof? Take a look at user profile, there's second hint of that.

Why should I and you care whether company/ business is professional? Well, if you have this question, I don't have anything to say.

What do you think, privacy policy, tos, and transparent domain makes business behind it trustworthy? Then why do I bust my time rating sites? I could just give my mouse to my 7 year old cousin- tracking cookies and nosing around is his favorite thing ever.
