Meta: Comment Spam 1

Comment spam has been over the top all week–several hundred a day. The current popular technique is to string together words to give the impression that the bot actually read the post, while actually saying nothing precise or relevant. The link that the bot is pimping is embedded with the signature.

(Remember that the most common purpose of this stuff nowadays is to give sites more Google juice. It’s dark side of “SEO” and companies get paid lots of money for it.)

Just for grins and giggles, here’s a sample:

Undeniably consider that that you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be at the web the easiest factor to remember of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed at the same time as other people consider issues that they plainly don’t realize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as neatly as defined out the entire thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thank you.

Now that’s word salad that even Sarah Palin could admire.

    I also get a lot of spam saying “I notied [yout domain] isn’t listed yadda yadda” with an embedded link their SEO optimization services. This is accompanied by straight e-mail pitches, always from “women,” saying they want to work with me to get my pages search optimized. The activity, while we dispatch it, must work on a lot of people. A lot of Google search is thoroughly poisoned, some done by very big people. No one can seriously believe, for example, that the Huffington Post legitimately has some witless page at the top or near so of every search query.
