The Golden Era of Spam Comments has Ended

This is an early Xmas gift of sorts...

The search engine optimization community has spent the last two years in a panic. SEO people flood our Internet with spam links and fake Twitter bots and paid traffic, to help bad websites look more popular than they are, to deliver fake viewers to web ads.

They now spend their lives on the run, Google nipping at their heels. Their biggest project? Removing all the spam links on websites like this oneā€”the spam links that they put there.

Yeah good luck with that you stupid morons. :twisted:

Half of me wishes we hadn't spent so many man-hours making sure no spam comments would appear in the Google-visible sections of the website. But since most of the spam we get is for fly-by-night sports jerseys and pandora charms, the sites probably don't expect to be in existence long enough for it to make a difference. Or if they did, ICE has disabused them of that notion.

The scum bags behind the solid wood kitchen remodeling in UK spam need to reap what they have sown, though.
