I’ve pointed out a few sites in the past that have working black hat technique another one cropped up the other day, I mentioned it on twitter.

Showforce.com are a company that provide staff for events, promotions etc, I’m sure they are a great company but it seems that the SEO company they are using are not too great (well they are ranking in Google…). In this case plenty of key phrases have been hidden in a h1 tag at the bottom of Showforce’s homepage.

showforce-hidden-text

So how is this text hidden? Well the text is placed in a H1 inside a div called “SEO”, the style is set to hidden.

Does this work? Well yes, the text is hidden and the Showforce site ranks number one at for “event staff”.

Will it work for longer? We’ll have to see. It seems that Google need to fix up and look sharp on their spam detection.
