Zscaler reports on ‘blackhat’ SEO numbers for December 2010

Zscaler reports on ‘blackhat’ SEO numbers for December 2010.

One of the Social Engineering risks a user must cope with is malicious web page links that show up in Google searches. Google is aware of this problem and works to weed out the “blackhat” website pages that attempt to fool Google’s algorithms.

While Google’s efforts are improving, Zscaler is reporting that in December 2010, Google flagged only 44% of the “blackhat” links that Zscaler identified.

Full disclosure – Zscaler is a Cymbel partner.
