Maximizing PageRank via outlinks

Leigh Dodds's blog has a link to the paper Maximizing PageRank via outlinks about optimizing the Google page rank of a site. The basic strategy is to have a sequence of pages where each page links to the next page in the sequence, each page links back to all previous pages in the sequence, and the final page is the only page with outlinks. The paper illustrates this I am sorry to say that I have not read the paper as the proof looks like more than I can handle.
