GoingUP trafic tool - NEVER USE IT

    :mad: I am so mad right now - I've just discovered that by using the php script for the GoingUp SEO trafic analyser, they were adding hidden links into my website.
    I was so wrong to trust these guys by using their script - so be carefull - I will just rely on Google analytics from now on :(
    This link is what they've added:
    <div style="position: absolute; top: -8000px;" id="4ja3b-ppcn"><a href="SITELINK" title="Data Recovery Software">Data Recovery Software</a></div>
    Code (markup):
    Shame on you, GoingUP!!!!!

    Later: I've found that someone else also discovered this: http://www.blogcatalog.com/blog/crankynu/33ebd00c582a53d83c9ac88b604c86ac

    Wow, that is a significant find! It is disturbing to see forms of web spam like that - but then to have a company push it out there is worrisome. :(

    It's unfortunate that many people may be oblivious to this too. :( It can really harm the site's own trust level with the search engines.
