thanks for the update.

Danged effective spamming. Driving high rankings from the universe of data providers still works. Nice to know. Hopefully google pays attention to this as much as the spammers do. ;)

Don't hold your breath on that one, Dave-- You'll be out of oxygen very quickly ;) This is in Canada though and the Pigeon algo took a few months to fully role out in the USA so it may just go away algorythmically in a few weeks.
Hard to tell with the crap Pigeon keeps dropping though :p
