UK tech website ZDNet.co.uk is denying
they are stuffing gay-related search keywords into their stories in
an effort to boost traffic.
“Absolutely, this is not of our
choosing,” Editor Rupert Goodwins told On Top Magazine in an email.
The stories, which began appearing on
search engines on Tuesday, are stuffed with gay-related and sexually
explicit keywords certain to attract attention.
A search on Google News shows nearly
150 such stories.
The stories include explicit titles
such as Upskirt Lingerie Thumbnails, Big Black Cocks Deepthroat,
First Time Virgin Lesbians, Free Fat Lesbian Video and Ass Rammed By
Giant Dildo, and have been stuffed with sexually explicit and
sometimes gay-related keywords, including “free guy gays f***ing
video” and “anal gay hunky sex,” to name just a few.
The all-things-tech website said it was
working to end the attack.
“We're aware of this incident, and
our tech team is working to stop it as soon as possible,” Goodwins
“Normal service – for a tech
website that wants to stay that way! – will be resumed as soon
possible,” he added.
