Can you speak russian? If you do, go ahead and read this post about Quick Indexing.
If you don’t, then I’m right there with you. I don’t speak russian either. Fortunately a talented russian black hat SEO who speaks english told me what this post is about.
Fortunately for you, I’ll write a post about it.
Basically, this is the principle:
- Create 100,000 pages using your page generator of choice. You can monetize these pages or use them as Doorways. Your choice.
- Create a bunch of Sitemaps. I’m not talking about xhtml sitemaps, just plain html pages full of links to your spammy pages. Don’t apply common knowledge here: don’t think that Google will only follow 100 links in your sitemap. Just dump tens of thousands of links to your pages.
- Sign Up in a bunch of trusted hosts and upload your sitemaps to them.
- Spam the living hell out of your sitemaps with your favourite Link Spamming Tool.
If you are confused this image should clear it up for you:
What are you waiting for? Go grab a bunch of long tail lists you surely have somewhere in your hard drive, generate those pages, create sitemaps, upload them, spam them. How long can that take.

Straight from Treadwatch, noticed by one of the most insightful SEO guys in the industry:
Wow Google what a great algo you’ve got and what a really terrific user experience you’re providing when you occupy 9 out of the top 10 results for a query with your own sites.
It’s funny how the Big G says one thing and does the opposite.
I tend to agree with Graywolf when he claims, in the thread discussion, the following:
[...] but it’s the tip of the iceberg used to make a point. Google engineers do site review clinics at conferences and scold people who have lot’s of domains with very similar if not identical content. However in practice they do exactly they tell everyone else not to do. They publish guidelines about how not providing original content creates a bad user experience, but again do exactly what they tell everyone else not to do. They keep preaching it’s all about the user experience and providing great results yet for a search term that they describe as “volcanic” in volume they provide almost no value.
Have you ever seen what happens in the serps when you create a piece of linkbait on a fresh domain? All those pages from Netscape, Digg, Delicious and Reddit are likely to rank higher than your own domain. Even though they are using duplicate content.
Congratulations assholes, you managed to consolidate an algorithm that disfavours the small guys who play fair. And then you whine if the amount of Black Hat SEOs is on the rise.
