I use Mozilla and it handles frames differently than Internet Explorer. When I went to http://www.magpul.com I noticed their home page was spread out over multiple screens with tiny lines interspersed. I did a “Select All”, “Copy” and did a “Paste Special” in MS Word as plain text….

Much to my surprise, I now had seven pages (!) of “hot-button” words and phrases that would be guaranteed to trip every pattern recognition alarm in systems like Echelon.

(Make this text your sig line and you’ll be sure to get on *someones * watch list!)

You can duplicate this with MS Internet Explorer. When you first land on their home page, this microscopic text is invisible as black 1 point font on a black background. But doing a “Select All”, “Copy” and then a “Paste Special” in MS Word as plain text….same results.

You can also view it directly, by right clicking and choosing “View Source” to see the hypertext code that generates the page.

What’s up with this?

I wrote to their “contact us” e-mail address and they either don’t get it or don’t care.

It’s quite a list, some 1430 unique entries:

I always thought that gobs of words like that were used to get more hits from search engines.

Trying to spoof google?

Google spoofing.

They are using a cheap way to get their site ranked higher. Most search engines will ban them for it.

I believe they call it "salting a search engine"

Now it makes sense.

Matter of fact, I did a search on that phrase and the first website that came back promises you:

# Submission to an additional 53 search engines!
# Guaranteed listing in Google & AOL in 2 weeks!
# Keyword Generators - Identify hundreds of keywords/phrases that will help you determine how to optimize your site to achieve higher rankings in Google, Yahoo, MSN, and others!
# Meta Tag Optimization - Tools to optimize your meta tags for optimum search engine performance!
# Search Engine Intelligence Report - Learn little known search engine optimization tricks to improve your ranking on search engines such as Google, Yahoo, AOL, and MSN!

But I find out, keyword spamming actually works against a search engine rating of a web site. The more sophisticated engines look at this "metatag" information and match it against what's actually on the site itself, and if there's a low correlation, that site gets pushed down towards the bottom of the results of a search.

It was just such a freaky list of words...made me want to go put on my tinfoil hat.

That list makes a rather strange "keyword" list.


They have either been hacked or the web developer wants to call down the "E-Ninjas"

Agreed. There are some funky entries in there.
