Someone explain this to me?

Whilst procrastinating--do I do anything else these days?--I happened upon volokh.blogspot.com, a site run by a search engine optimisation firm. Its content seems a bit odd, and I don't have time to figure out what it's doing.

I suppose it could be run by a Volokh who doesn't belong to the Conspiracy, but I'm not entirely convinced. Then again, I can't figure out why an SEO optimizer would do this--would merely owning http://volokh.blogspot.com give someone juice for anything except the name Volokh? And if not--with due respect to the Volokh clan--why would someone want it?

Honest questions, and if my more expert friends (that means you, Steve and Martin) had any ideas, I'm all ears. After 1PM tomorrow, that is.

UPDATE: OK, figured it out very quickly. The Conspiracy used to blog at Blogspot, and this guy's taken the place over in order to get a free PR6, very useful if you're into Search Engine Optimization. See all the folks who still link to that site. Do me a favor--if one of these is you, change the link and teach this joker a lesson. Mr. Glenn Reynolds, that means you. (Yeah, like he reads my site.)

UPDATE II: An astute reader points out that unless I want to give these guys my own Google juice, I should take the link off of my own entry. A very embarassed TYoH apologizes for the idiotic oversight and will return to my write-on now.

UPDATE III: I'm well-impressed by Mr. Reynolds, however. Within the space of an hour, he's updated the link.

As various readers have pointed out, some schmoe has set up his blog (apparently something having to do with search engines) at volokh.blogspot.com, our old home. When we moved our then-blogger-based blog to volokh.com, that fre...

Blimey, do you reckon you're a full blown part of the right wing echo chamber now?
With a post on Google? Or do you mean by the fact Mr. Reynolds responded. Nope--I wrote him an email specifically. :) (Sorry, should have mentioned that--too damn busy w/ my write-on...)
Ah, I wrote to him once (I think it was him, who's the other big name right wing blogger?). A day later there was the 'some of my readers have taken issue with...' opening to a followup post. I think we have to conclude he just doesn't get much email :-)

Or perhaps other people thought the same thing as you, and emailed him.
Nice site...
