Google has invented algorithms that can be easily used by today’s Technology companies as scamming schemes. It has not confirmed but a giant technology firm has gotten away with numerous lawsuits because they have been applying this algorithms in their business dealings…it is a huge account(government in a third world country).
Here is the scheme: Company A manufactures hardware and has tie-ups with software vendors. In order for them to avoid lawsuits should a major ERP implementation fails which will be caused by their hardware, what they do is set up small technology companies that would sell their hardware and this dummy hardware vendor will enter into a contract with another third party software vendor. This is called 3-level shield. But if the implementation succeeds, the mother company will take majority of the credits. This is the equivalent of Google’s Linkwheel algorithm.
There are several scamming schemes that can be derived from Google’s Pagerank Algorithm. But so far the above mentioned method has proven to be very effective.
