    Default New Type of SEO Spam via Cloaked PDFs

    I've been wondering for some time why the heck I was seeing so many PDFs ranking for lots of different gaming queries.

    This blog post explains it: Sophos Uncovers Mass Link Spam In Google's Search Results Via Cloaked PDFs

    It seems as though it's a hacking/spamming technique where hacked PDF documents are being placed on legitimate sites, and these documents redirect to spam sites.

    The company that did the investigation says hackers are using PDF documents because “Google implicitly trusts PDFs more than HTML” although SEL can't say for sure whether that's completely accurate.

    Regardless, that's why you're seeing so many PDFs in Google search results.
