For years cybersquatters and typosquatters have preyed on highly trafficked Web sites such as Google, Yahoo and AOL. Now they are turning their sights on a new group: bloggers. Examples abound: Misspell PVRblog.com and you are directed to a porn site. Type blooger.com or bloogger.com and you are directed to sites with keyword link ads. Matt Haughey of PVRblog.com says:
People aren’t naturally gravitating towards just a few major sites anymore, and besides, those few major sites have prominent legal teams. So you go to the blogs, small operators with millions of visitors and try to collect the mistakes and turn them into cash somehow.
