[Plugin: jQuery Lightbox] SPAM / Black-Hat SEO Issues

  • There are a couple issues with this plugin that need to be addressed.

    1. Every overlay features the balupton name and link back to balupton.com. This means that people that use this plugin are unknowingly providing sneaky SEO juice pumping back-links. How is this not scumbag SEO backlink farming?
    2. Almost a quarter of the code is multiple copies of
      * @author Benjamin "balupton" Lupton {@link http://www.balupton.com}
      * @copyright (c) 2009-2010 Benjamin Arthur Lupton {@link http://www.balupton.com}

      Yes, this is not really SPAM, or backlinking, but it is very masterbertory.

    3. Clicking on the Title opens up pop-up window! yes, that is right, a 1994 style pop up window… WTF!

    Overall, nice plugin, except for the high SPAM / Blackhat SEO Scumbag factor.
