SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM

Have you noticed how many spam comments we are getting these days. I often can’t be bothered deleting them. It does seem to be driving bloggers and commenters away from the blog communities however.

The culprit is Google. Despite a lot of pompous talk about how their last algorithm revamp favoured relevance, quality and new content over links I find (elsewhere, I gave up on this site for traffic long ago) that I do not need to add new content to my pages now. Just having RSS feeds in there to put something irrelevant but different on pages every day, and two or three new links to my articles etc. is enough to gain decent traffic.

Somebody said last week the web is not about freeing all the information in the world and making it available to everyone, it is about enslaving us all by making so much information available nobody can find out what’s really going on. Then once we are hooked, they sell us Ugg boots, penis enlargement cream and self help books.

  1. Hi! A couple of silly questions, if you have the time…

    1/ Have you any idea why this page is claiming to have two comments when I can’t see any?

    2/ “Just having RSS feeds in there to put something irrelevant but different on pages every day, and two or three new links to my articles etc. is enough to gain decent traffic.” The SEO mob are always on about getting traffic, but never say why they want it. Should I care if hardly anyone reads my crap?

    Ignore, if you are busy!

      • A lot of people have raised that point. It can only be a blog.co.uk bug.

        CAring about whether anyone reads our crap is a personal choice but I think we should care when crap is getting in the way of serious information.

        On a CiF thread a couple of weeks ago about a few powerful corporations controlling the web one of the CiF boy scientists said, “What’s wrong with Google controlling the web?”

        One migh just as well say “What’s wrong with Hitler controlling Germany” or “What’s wrong with Stalin controlling Russia.”
