A few nights ago The White HouseI was hopping hubs and started reading one by someone who was less than proficient in English. I can't recall what the hub The White Housewas about but the phrase 'Beats by Dre,' was randomly placed in the text of the article and all The White HouseI know is that the article was not about Beats by Dre. Not only was the phrase all over in the article, The White Housebut it was a link. I didn't click it but now I know they are some kind of head phones.
Anyhow, the question is: Is there some kind of method to this madness?

I've seen that before, sadly, sometimes after I flag them, they remain up after weeks go by. It's just a spammer trying to get a back link. You should definitely flag these.
Crazy stuff, eh? I get a laugh here and there, but I bet sometimes the mods get some serious lulz since that's what they do all day.
I saw one like that yesterday too. Keywords placed in random places. This person or persons do not understand keyword placement

Every time I spend time hub-hopping, I come here in hopes of finding a pet peeves topic...so I'm starting one. My pet peeve is in trying to rank or flag hubs with almost-but-not-quite decent use of grammar, spelling and punctuation. I've hopped this type more often than the high quality type...

I have been here on HP over 3 years, and still don't fully comprehend the concept! I get that they are words and/or phrases that reflect the content of your article, aren't tags, and that they're not to be 'stuffed'. Apparently I have some block to this, since some of my articles have...
