(How to evaluate fake sites)
first published at searchlores in April 2006
An evaluating essay, part of the evaluating results lore.
Well... what should I say? This is an interesting read for any seeker. For sure: this soi-disant 'blogger' is a easy debunking target, a real 'sitting duck silhouette' in front of the 'linkfarmscape'. In fact, the title of this essay could have been "Marcus P. Zillman, M.S., A.M.H.A: the snake oil seller", but after all not everything is that bad: some people may really like his videos, they can be funny and would probably even be really suitable for kids (if he would promote his own linkfarms a little bit less).
Anyway this short essay is in fact just a quick note. Yet this tiny messageboard discussion may result pretty useful for more global evaluation skills purposes. At the same time -and this is the point of the exercise- this discussion underlines the sad degeneration of google's defenses against spammers and linkfarmers.
