Signs That You Are Just another SPAM Blogger
Written by Trent Brownrigg · April 2, 2012
...Or How to Repent from Your SPAMMY Ways!
The following is a public service announcement from yours truly. It is a somewhat satirical rag on SPAM bloggers. And, even if that doesn’t apply to you, and I hope that it doesn’t, there is a lot to learn in the following post for just about anyone involved in blogging.
Oh, please forgive my lack of manners; I just came from my psychologists office. He suggested that I work on saying it how it is instead of sugar coating everything. I’ve chosen, you, SPAMMY bloggers, to be the brunt of my newly found freedom to say it like it is – because, well, you deserve it.
Yeah you know who you are, but if you don’t, here are a few signs that you are just another SPAM blogger.
• You don’t really know much about the main subject of your blog, and you never really intend to learn about it either
• Your blog is called something like Hemorrhoid-Medication-Reviews dot com
• You don’t have an “About” page because you are just like the “man behind the curtain” in the Wizard of Oz – not real
• You have an “About” page, but the name and picture aren’t really you
• You paid someone five dollars on “Fiverr” to get you 100 fake facebook “likes”
• You think that the Panda is dangerous
Fix Your SPAMMY Ways
Forgive me for getting all preachy on you, but I just want to tell you that the time has come to fix your SPAMMY ways. The end is near. Seriously. The end of poorly constructed purely for SEO, content is near.
Since Google’s PANDA update search engine rankings have been falling for SPAM producers. And just recently Google shot “Build My Rank” to the ground. For anyone that hasn’t heard of it, “Build My Rank” is a link building service that, like so many others, artificially increased their clients websites rankings through SPAMMY backlinking. The party is over for them, and they admitted it. It’s just a matter of time before the rest of the superstar SPAMMY back linking services get blasted too.
But That’s Not All Folks
The search engines have their eyes on blasting your SPAMMY blogs to smithereens too.
What to Do About It
The good news is that it may not yet be too late, here are some things that you can do to convert your blog from SPAM to the real thing:
• Include an about page – it gives your blog an element of being personal
• Include a “terms of service” page – makes any site look more legit
• Stop spinning SPAMMY backlinks
• Create fantastic content that real humans will “like” and “tweet”
I feel better after getting that out of my system. Thanks for reading, and I look forward to reading your awesome blogs.
