The Pixel Trick
From Jim on 20 January '98
adding to Re: Spamming the ALT tags? posted by Nicholas

I see what you mean. There is a trick you can use,
although it's one of those bottom-of-the barrel
ones that'll have a limited effect, if any. It
certainly won't work on the deep engines that
don't read ALT tags which is the majority.

Make a one-pixel (1*1), transparent graphic and
load the ALT tag with keywords, as you've described.
Place it anywhere you like on your pages because it's
invisible, it's quick to download (only a dozen or
so bytes!) and even if the user has their graphics
switched off, they won't see any of the spam
because the space for the image is so small.
Don't forget to use WIDTH=1 HEIGHT=1
