Business Insider informs us that Amazon and Apple don’t need any help beating Google.  Actually Reuters informs us, BI republished their article the other day and are now presenting their rewording, a masterpiece of SEO:  3 visible links to articles on their site, and 5 carefully hidden links to inflate their search engine rankings for company names.

Mashable presents us with an infographic on the evolution of Windows finding four weak excuses to link to their SEO spam pages before presenting what must be the billionth infographic designed to convert some sensationally-skewed dataset into backlinks.
