Ok, I was arrested and the online mugshot extortion racket posted my picture online and contacted me to remove the image at $399 per image. It ended up in an email conversation in which a mugsnot affiliate admitted he was extorting me. Emails turned over to IC3.
To post their jive, they used several link farms. To date I have had two taken down; the largest was over 11M links. These sites are now turning to hacking methods to bypass Google and post links in a SERP in the first through the fifth link in a search. The link is not seen by Google and other search engines. I pay a service to monitor that search and the links never show in the reports though they are visually on the listed positions from several different Google and Bing servers.
On appearance, it looks as if a combination of corruption of adsense and DNS poisoning are used. Take that with a grain of salt because we are speaking of a spammer that has never been caught (I can give the name).
I posted something similar to this on a few Black Hat SEO forums. It looks like those forums are populated by script kiddies.
So, now I am asking if anyone here has any idea of how those individuals would spoof Google?
