So that you can rank high in the search engines is this being accomplished on subdomains of timeinc.net? You decide. MarkMonitor owns the domain name timeinc.net, a site with a homepage which re-directs to-the main Time.com site. Therefore it would appear they’re working this website with respect to TimeWarner.

If you go to the timeinc site and view some of the source code of the pages, you will discover error pages that have links below an image map at the bottom of the site, links which are hidden from viewers and put into increase the search engine position of other Time Warner properties. This practice is often called Black-hat SEO.
An image map tells the browser how to show an image. That’s its only function. However, a number of the pages on timeinc.net have links hidden to viewers close to the image maps.
