At the bottom:
"French Caribbean / St. Barts Villa Rental Hotels / St. Barthelemy Villa
Rental Hotels / St. Martin Villa Rental Hotels / St. Barth Private Villa
Rental Hotels / St. Barths Villa Rental Hotels / Guadeloupe Hotels /
Vacation Rentals / Martinique Hotels / Caribbean Map / Carribean Villas /
Les Saintes Hotels / Iles des Saintes Hotels / Marie-Galante Hotels / French
West Indies Hotels Lodging / Saint Barthelemy / Saint Barts / Saint Martin /
Villa Rental Hotels / les Antilles"
I think their viewable spam is worse than that which the alt tags contain. I
have seen alt tags used to detect (design) plagiarism, but it's also an SEO
loophole, I guess. It comes down to the question: how much repeatability can
a search engine tolerate? Where does it set a threshold? Ricoh and BMW were
only scapegoats to create a scare.
