Nonsense Word Blogspot Referrer Spam

Posted on December 30, 2005

Apparently sploggers using BlogSpot aren't even bothering to be creative anymore. We found dozens of referrer spam blogs from BlogSpot in our referrer logs that look like these.

Google should be able to find a way to purge these stupid nonsense splogs from BlogSpot. These particular splogs, which are not even formatted like blogs, contain Google AdSense text ads and ads for page rank and link popularity services. They also appear to have been coded to hide Blogger's flag that lets you notify Blogger about blogs that are splogs or have objectionable content.

Update: Google has since removed the spam blogs.
