Brandjacking
Brandjacking is a term used to describe the unethical on-line use of brand names for profit. The practice is usually associated with other types of internet fraud such as cyber-squatting. Brandjackers exploit popular brands to drive traffic to their sites without the brand owners permission to do so. The brand hijacking is done in such a way as to make best use of search engine optimisation techniques to give wide visibility of the hijacked brands within the search engine rankings.
