    I’ve been getting some odd requests, both in comments and from the contact form on my site, for people wanting Friendster and Gmail invites. It’s odd because I have neither to invite too, and I couldn’t understand why they were coming to me.
    So I googled my site ,Gmail, invite – and there it is, a link to an apparent invitation on my site.
    I checked my page – it’s not there. It was never there.
    Google’s cache though reveals the Waypath results (the hack is currently not working in 1.2e) and Google has included enough text of the Waypath result, along with my text, to make it appear that I was indeed offering such invites.
    Not complaining, but I had wondered why my visits counter had increased recently, and I didn’t realise that Google would cache the results of a hack.
    Anyway, that’s all 🙂
    (Oh, and a Gmail invite would be cool too!)

  • the waypath content is rendered as a part of ur html page! thats why waypath help u in google as u get loads of extra content per page without much effort…

    Yes, Waypath does produce indexable text on your pages. This makes it apparent that it can be used for spam-like purposes… makes me think it’s better left off your site.

    I am with Anon on this one. I’ve been more than upset when Google pulled up blogs with nothing more than a rather irrelevant Waypath link.

    I’ve removed waypath from the start…. better said haven’t used it at all, just seen how it works… I mean, it’s *my* blog where *I* post about *my* life…
