I’m happy to learn that Dr. Deepak Khemani from the Artificial Intelligence & Database Research Group at Indian Institute of Technology Madras, India is using my LSI and Term Vector tutorials for his graduate courses:

It is great to see that more and more IRs and graduate students are realizing how certain SEOs have induced the public and their clients into error; that is, by selling their snakeoil in the form of “LSI optimization” and keyword density services. The most recent scam comes in the form of “markov chain” services. Like if they really know about matrix algebra and markov chain processes. Same old tricks…

It is not surprising to hear colleagues referring to these SEOs as vulgar crooks and scammers.
