BulletProof Security Exploit – Cross-Site Scripting (XSS)

Again, this may not be the fault of the affiliate and I certainly don’t believe it’s ThemeForest’s fault. In fact, I don’t even think it’s a huge deal that it’s happening, personally. But I think it does show a significant issue in Google’s ranking algorithm. What if a website were to use a similar tactic to rank on the first page for a major bank’s login page? A popular email service? Your web hosting company?

With all that being said, this is simply something Google needs to get resolved. Not just for this domain, but for any using tactics such as this for illegitimate purposes. Hundreds of millions of people depend on Google because… well, just look at the alternatives.

I’ll leave it up to a wonderful SEO blogger to discuss how or why this is happening in Google’s search results. However, I do think some WordPress bloggers may find it interesting to look into how many searches that each of the terms listed above are getting on a monthly basis.
