Hewlett Packard Giving Away Free Templates With Embedded Links

Seems the giving away free templates with embedded keyword rich links has filtered up to the fortune 500 level as Hewlett Packard released a series of free templates today

Head on over to HP Logoworks and download a free template. Open up the footer and here’s what you’ll see

<p>
Logoworks designs custom <a onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" href="http://www.logoworks.com/business-cards.html">business cards</a> and <a onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" href="http://www.logoworks.com">logos<a>.<br />

 

Looks like HP’s Logoworks division want to rank for business cards and logos to me. Since Matt Cutts has already expressed his opinion of embedded links in themes can we expect a ban or penalty to find it’s way over to HP and Logoworks? Something tells me google will continue to beat down the little guy while big brand names get away with it.

Yet another example of Google’s two tiered justice in action.
