Apparently, the folks over at ThreadWatch found some interesting evidence that Google is actually cloaking some informational pages on their site to rank higher -- in Google?
Is that not one of the funniest things you've ever heard? It just really makes me
Here's the ThreadWatch thread for the details: Google Cloaks
What I don't get is why they don't just hand boost their page?

If thats true then they couldn't finangle it that way.
*giggle* ...Google cloaking...

Last I heard it doesn't allow for cloaking either!
The whole situation is just too funny for words. Spamming their own engine. Go figure.

Thanks for sharing...
Lately, I'm not surprised at too much Google does... they have definitely changed from who they were and what their goals were... in many areas. This would be my opinion.
Market Share tells few lies.

Then again, with the spammy title tag, the page is the sort of thing I laugh at when I'm researching competition for my clients.

Anyway, I've reported it. Let's see what happens.

I've reported it too!
What an underhand "deceptive" trick
Can't wait to see what certain "white hats" say. What's good for the Goose etc., perhaps?
I think not - but it is going to be interesting to see if anyone tries to defend this and what arguments they use!
Best laugh I've had in years!

That's right... as of today, I'm changing my username. qwerty is dead. Long live cloaky

I'm betting the pages will quietly disappear any time now. (Proving that your reporting does actually work...NOT!)

I'll bet they just leave it set for a while and see what becomes of it... (including our discoveries) this is what they have been doing with every other topic of controversy.
I was very happy to see you guys report it! I love it!
