Question: What does it mean when they offer to set up a “shadow site” to glean awords?
Answer: I am not exactly sure what you mean by ‘shadow site.’ Perhaps you can email me an example? One thought would be that your SEO guru’s create a series of low quality, keyword heavy sites and launch those, in the hopes of attracting Google’s attention. Another is that they are talking about launching keyword heavy websites or even what is called ‘parked domains’ and then participating in Google’s AdSense program, which pays websites for clicks.
