Sneaky moves

This is funny. Check out all the text that is at the bottom of the King St cycles homepage. It’s written in the same colour of the background so you can’t see it unless you drag your cursor over it. They are trying to bring up their homepage on search engines when you search for

  3. Too funny.
    Unfortunately about 7 years too late. The major search engines figured this sorta spam out years ago and will actually move you down the ranking when they detect it.

    Also unfortunately for them, their total lack of any sort of service will always let them down, no matter how hard their site works for them… which is not a lot.

    OK, so I’m snarky tonight…..
