Websites hacked for backlinks

When I do competitor analysis one of the first things I do is examine their backlink profile.

Quite a few times, I have discovered what looks like websites that have been hacked to provide backlinks.

Here's an example of a hacked pages URL:


And it's contents:

As you can see it lists a bunch of websites with title and description that relate to the search term aviation picture frames.

In this case I uncovered 4 hacked websites using this particular search phrase which includes my clients competitors website.

As each page lists many websites, no single website can be implicated.

I also noticed that at the bottom of the list are a few links that refer to other lists using different keywords. This is how they propagate the indexation for these pages.

Am I right? Is this a very dodgy way to get backlinks, without implicating your client?

You're damn right this is serious. Anyone caught hacking someone else's site should end up being photographed for a mug shot like yours!
