Stealth Porn Via Fake Blogs

Porn Sites Hiding Behind Blogs: This is a lot like the “shill blog” concept we talked about a few months ago

Over the last few days, I’ve seen a number of pseudo-realistic blogs spring up. They link to real stories, but all the comment and trackback links are just javascript redirects to the root of the site […]

It appears that these sites, using a clean little weblog as a front, are hosting a large amount of porn. […] They’re attempting to increase the Google Juice of the main page of the site by spamming people’s referrers, and thereby increase the juice of the adult-webcam page.
