What’s this?

A whole bunch of bloggers have received emails containing some of the following:

This: http://www.onlinephdprograms.com/top_judaism/#Bad_for_Shidduchim

and a badge that links to a search engine site for online programs.

It seems to be some way of driving traffic to certain sites. Basically, spam that plays on blogger arrogance. Hat tip to SoG for doing a lot of research on it.
