Blogger.com and Zombies

Posted by: of One By One Media on 08/15/05

Mark Cuban writes that "splogs" or "spamblogs" or "zombie blogs" are becoming more and more popular through the use of free blog services like Google’s blogger.com

Blogger is by far the worst offender. Google seems to be working hard to adjust their relevancy indexes to exclude
splog from having influence on search rankings, but they dont seem to be doing anything more than removing reported
splogs. Kind of like going after the zombies one at a time with a shovel. Can we get some help on this Google ?

We hear that there are 80,000 new blogs set up per day, and there may be reason to believe that many of those blogs are nothing more than Zombies.  How do we combat this problem?  Some say that anything with a blogger.com URL could and should be banned as spam.  This is akin to "Kill them all and let God sort them out."

  1. I had blocked blogger.com addresses for a while in my blog, but then I needed to link to one and individually block them as they spam my site now.

  2. I believe “spam that pollutes the blogosphere” should be referred to as “SMOG”
