Boston IMC and other IMCs are being used by individuals to promote websites.

You have all read about the fact people can manipulate Google by linking to sites and including text on pages with keywords that cause google to rank the site higher?

Well, Boston-IMC is being used by someone to help his rankings on the search engines. He has been very subtle about it, he has been posting articles and links on an area very few visit, so no one noticed it.
Search engines blindly gather all pages they can and database them.

Someone has been sneaking his articles onto "Other Press" A place where you are supposed to link to articles produced by the corporate and mainstream press, and permits users to make comments on the reposts.

But NO!!!! someone has been breaking the rules and posting links to his own websites.......

Thus using Boston-IMC to get a higher ranking on search engines. He is "advertising"
