Spammification!?

Wow. I am accustomed to getting “followers” who don’t seem to really exist or exist as commercial sites hoping to get put on the sideline as “blogs that follow/like me” or some such tripe. But today, taking a look at one (Well, ok, because frankly the picture was of an incredibly good looking man), I discovered an entire blog that I think is manufactured by a spammer.

I could be wrong, of course, but it is really wonky. The articles look as if they are copy and pasted, or a bit like re-blogged posts. But the comments at the very end of articles are totally “off”…the English usage changes and falls apart and then there are links. No, I didn’t click them.

No, I don’t want to link TO this blogger/possible spammer. Has anyone else run into something so peculiar?

    Yes, it’s called a spam blog, and its sole purpose is to drive traffic to scumbags either by raising the scumbags higher in the Googlebot ratings or by tricking people into clicking on the links. They’ve been around for at least a decade now, but usually don’t last long because people click the “this is a spammer” button and report it.

Herland

The name of this blog, and my Dreamwidth blog, Herlander Refugee, is taken from a 1915 feminist novel "Herland". It makes my heart sing that modern women are experimenting with creation of a new "Herland"! Yes, comments are closed. Anyone who just MUST reach me can do so at syrbal6 at gmail dot com.
