I doubt that if it is fooling google now that it will for long. These sites will be taken out of the index for doing this. Also seems like it would kill bandwidth and load times. Obviously unethical.

it's not to fool google, but linktrades.

and it wouldn't really kill loadtimes if it's called after the page is loaded.

I guess so but it would hurt bandwidth but obviously they don't care. It is still unethical, I thought this was something to do with google ads or something. But I see now, link exchanges. I dunno obviously it is still bad but depending on what exchange it is... I might or might not feel guilty about doing it.

Yeah that is terrible, I think we should get cooking on a solution to this problem because it must be widespread or is fast going to become widespread.

I mean more like however the exchange system calculates stuff. But even that seems impossible. Weak.
