Hi. It’s Friday. I’m trying to finish D Weddings, so without further ado, here are the wise words of ID Collection’s Jim Williamson. For the non-bloggers out there, spamments are SPAM that appear on websites. They are disguised as friendly comments. Some people call them “ham”; some refer to them as “yam.” I prefer to use the word “Spam,” as I only like ham on holidays.
Typically the comments are something like this: “My first time here. I really like your site. And let me tell you, you have hit the hammer upon the head. I am no expert, but you really sound like you know what you are talking about. This has been helpful to me. I will be back more soon. Keep on keeping up.”
When you initially read a comment like this, you think, “Wow! That’s so nice! Someone is actually reading my stuff. Obviously, they are not from here because this English doesn’t sound quite right. How exciting to have a following overseas!”
Unfortunately, it turns out that these things are merely computer-generated comments that pick up on SEO words. These seemingly nice comments are actually hiding RSS feeds. So when you post these comments showcasing how fabulous your writing is, you are really adding their RSS feed to your site. And usually those hidden feeds are coming from places like BUY MICHAEL KORS CHEAP, MONTCLER AT UNBELIEVABLE PRICES, and UGGS LIKE YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN.
I am glad I figured this out before posting one particularly nice comment. It linked to male enhancement products.
