Chasing down SEO rabbitholes

This is probably the most amazing blogs Ive study inside of a really extended time. The level of information in here is stunning!
That was the comment. It was submitted by someone named "Bose." The piss poor grammar and spamishness sparked my curiosity. Who was the spammer?

There wasn't much to go on when I clicked on Bose's blogspot user profile. Just a link to something called ArticleCity(dot)com. And just what is ArticleCity, you may ask. It's your "one-stop" shop for free articles to put in your online newsletter or e-mail spam.
Welcome to ArticleCity(dot)com - your one-stop source for free articles. Do you need content to add to your web site? Or articles for use on your opt-in newsletters and e-zines? maintains a huge collection of articles on a wide variety subjects. 
So I scrolled down to the legal articles and found one about when you need to hire a DUI lawyer. The article was a tangled mess of poor grammar and viewpoints. Here's an excerpt:
DUI (Driving under the influence) of alcohol or drugs is considered to be a serious offense as it is the greatest cause of criminal injury and death. The drugs that are taken into account include tranquilizers, opiates, amphetamines, cocaine and marijuana. When the driver has a blood alcohol level of 0.08% or higher then in that case that person is guilty of the offense. Drivers who drink and drive not only put their life in danger but also of the people around them. They think that after drinking they can control their driving without caring about the consequences like they might get caught by the police or they might get involved in an accident. They also have to face severe legal consequences such as their license may be suspended or they might be placed in jail and fined substantial fees.
We are then told that if you are arrested for DUI then you will need a lawyer who's "highly experienced and skilled," "highly skilled and efficient," "expert," "qualified," , "reliable," "right" and "proficient." I think he got in all the SEO-friendly keywords in that paragraph.

Our author ends with this caution:
Some lawyers offer free consultation to their clients. An initial consultation with your DUI lawyer helps you in deciding whether you want to work with them or not. Ensure the upfront fee and payment options. Therefore in order to save yourself from such kind of punishments it is advisable not to indulge in these type of things as it might be considered a crime and in case if you get involved in this type of situation then hiring an expert DUI lawyer can be the best solution.
Now we can all nitpick the article to death but that would be like shooting fish in a barrel. The article was written by someone named Sukhmannjot who provided a link in the author box to the Abreu Law Firm in Miami.
Abreu law firm Attorney Miami able to handle Criminal Lawyer Miami cases in either state or federal court.
I don't know if our friend Sukmannjot is an employee of the Abreu Law Firm or if he just works for some SEO company that posts spam comments and poorly written articles on websites. Whichever the case may be, I would suggest that Mr. Abreu keep closer tabs on those he uses to market his firm.
