Quixtar Blog: Quixtar Admits Google Bombing: Quixtar, a subsidiary of Amway, is apparently celebrating a coordinated Google-bombing and search engine spamming campaign. One of their people — some guy named Greg Duncan — boasted about it on stage in front of thousands of people. Probably not wise.
Quixtar is waging an aggressive Google Bombing campaign in an attempt to manipulate search engine results. The primary component of the “Quixtar Web Initiative” is specifically designed to exploit blogs in an unprecedented manner.
Unlike businesses that utilize a few blogs to communicate with employees, associates and customers […], Quixtar has hired “geekoids” to manufacture hundreds of blogs designed to confuse information seekers.
