How Avvo Manipulates Google?

Thumbtack is not the only one that is doing this. Avvo has been adding keyword links in their Avvo badges for some time now, and this has worked well for Avvo's Google rankings.
Avvo states that adding an Avvo badge to your profile on your web site is part of completing your profile on Avvo. By doing this lawyers are really just adding links to Avvo, not filling out their profiles.
The interesting Google SEO issue is that when you go to get the html code to add the Avvo badge, it includes a keyword follow link that links to an Avvo lawyer listing page for that same keyword. Avvo does not explicitly tell you that you are adding this keyword link to an Avvo listing page when you are getting the code to add a profile badge to your web site (although if you can read html you would see the keyword text and link). But non-technical lawyers, as most lawyers are, who go to the Avvo badge/widget page will think they are just adding a link to their profile.
The Avvo badge is actually rendered in javascript. You can just remove the html keyword spam tag and the text completely from the raw html, and everything in the badge from a user perspective, the graphic, text and the link, still shows up through the javascript. This indicates that the only real purpose of the text link in the raw html is for Google SEO.
This was discussed on the Lawyerist site in a post titled "How the Avvo Badge Promotes Your Competition" (although the real title of the post should have been "How the Avvo Badge Promotes Avvo").
Avvo has been getting topic specific lawyer websites using topic specific lawyer keyword text links to link to topic specific Avvo lawyer listing pages.

Best Bottom Freezers

After spending a couple thousand bucks on a new refrigerator—or more if you spring for a full-featured model—the last thing you want is to deal with repairs. Refrigerators are complex machines with lots of moving parts, especially those with ice and water dispensers. That’s why they have some of the highest repair rates among major appliances, based on Consumer Reports’ surveys of almost 80,000 subscribers. But certain brands have a better track record, so you can help yourself by choosing wisely.

Bottom freezers. If you’re shopping for a bottom-freezer with icemaker, whether conventional or French-door, think twice about models from the Sweden-based manufacturer Electrolux. Its repair rate of 45 percent was significantly higher than that of other brands. You might also want to avoid Frigidaire, owned by Electrolux, since its 35-percent repair rate also stands out for the wrong reasons. Whirlpool and KitchenAid are two more brands with higher-than-average repair rates.

Better bets in the bottom-freezer with icemaker category include GE, LG, Kenmore, and Samsung. Kenmore combines reliability with particularly strong performance among conventional bottom-freezers. The Kenmore Elite 79043, for example, is our top scorer in that category, offering superb temperature control, energy efficiency, and noise. Three models are tied for first in the French-door category: the $2,100Samsung RF261BIAESR, the $2,600 GE Profile PWE23KMDES, and the $3,330LG LFX32945ST. The LG is the only one with a through-the-door ice and water dispenser.

Push notifications help the users to get latest news and offers without them having to go online and look for updates. These notifications also help companies to inform users about offers and promotions being run at the business while still maintaining their cost effectiveness. Since iPhone applications are synced using a data server, any changes made on the servers, will be reflected in real time to all iPhone apps throughout the network therefore if a route is changed or there are changes in tariff, these can be updated automatically and a push notifications can be issued immediately.
Estate Agencies: One of the most important factors is to schedule an appointment with the estate agent; this problem is solved with users being able to book an appointment with the agent using the app on their iPhone. While social network integration can help users get firsthand knowledge about estate and properties they are interested in via social sharing of their “interests” allowing friends and family to pitch their concerns, ideas etc. Users can share estate information with redirecting links while also being able to share photos, or videos as available on the applications.
Hotels and Dine-ins:
Application users are able to book a table for themselves using their smart phones on which they can see a menu for the day, week or even month. Users can stay connected with the events that are about to happen at the hotel or restaurant. Business owners are able to upload full featured menus on the iPhone application, making it easier for users to view what’s on offer and order. Reviews and feedback can also be integrated to help the service get better. To make things easier for the customers, business owners can also integrated a GPS based map of their restaurant/hotel on the app allowing users to get directions to the venue.
App users are able to view the offerings at the business to place an order for pickup. Business owners can integrate a photo album that features all the products with all the benefits etc. for easy viewing taking the overall customer experience higher. To help spread the word, social network integration can be used enabling users to share app activity online while also being able to provide feedback on the application’s Facebook timeline fan page.

Shopping Stores:
Having a Custom iPhone App Development for shopping stores can offer their products to their customers in a far better way than brick and mortar stores. Apps allow users to browse through product categories fairly easily, cutting down on long aisle switches. Push notifications can help users get updates about products of their interest. Wish lists integration helps users to add products to their “interest” lists which they wish to buy at a later stage.
