Dumb SEO Spam

Do people still think stuff like this works? (Cut and paste this – I’m not creating a link and giving them the satisfaction).


I’m 99% sure they’re trying to gain ranking for ‘ford akron ohio’. Hopefully the search engines are smarter than that these days…

  1. I’ve seen some REALLY WEIRD comment spam on my blog that is seemingly trying to increase ranking for the words “snow patrol crash”. I am guessing for the band Snow Patrol?

    It’s so much more productive to be ethical. Just think:
    1. Google Adwords research reveals “Not enough data to give estimates” for their beloved phrases. (Both the snow patrol and Akron spammers.)
    2. If the Akron spammers were a legit local business, they could submit to Google Local Search and likely get a free listing for this term.
    Being unethical requires a whole lotta effort for very little reward. Such a waste of time and talent…
