How Fake Sites Trick Search Engines

Here’s a good article to pass on to your "less-than-tech-savvy" friends / family members. How many people do you know that trust any ol’ search result just because it was the top one?

Even search engines can get suckered by Internet scams. With a little sleight of hand, con artists can dupe them into giving top billing to fraudulent Web sites that prey on consumers, making unwitting accomplices of companies such as Google, Yahoo and Microsoft.
