Akismet has protected your site from 796 spam comments.

This was from a 24 hour period on Blue Hat SEO. So once again the topic of blog spam has come up. Blog spam is extremely popular, and just because I’m now a blogger myself doesn’t mean I have an excuse to suddenly become naive and pretend it’s not an EXTREMELY powerful and effective way to market. Search engines have been trying their little hearts out for the last couple years to make blog spam useless, but the facts are; They still love every single last link. As it stands now I still can’t come up with a faster way to get indexed than to put up links on 10,000 PR3+ blogs.

Like all highly public link bombing techniques such as comment spamming and trackback spamming, it’s a dying technology. Since I’m a very outspoken advocate of not following the rest of the marketing pack I’ve tried to give out some unique blog spamming tips like how to spam gov and edu sites to help narrow you from the rest of the crowd.

So as boring as this topic is I’m going to come back with another one, and say hey spam these guys. Yes they accept trackbacks :)

Just for the record. Since I know for a fact that at least two of the major ppl that spam my site are also regular readers of it, I wanted to state spamming me only slows down how many posts I do a month, not inspires them. So don’t think you’re teaching me something new or impressing me. Don’t get me wrong I don’t mind Blue Hat getting spammed or link bombed. If I did, I’d be a hypocrite. Just don’t get the wrong impression.

Update 8/25/06- The spam has stopped completely. Thanks guys. I appreciate it :)
