the case for spam

First of all, how do you define spam ?

Had i wrote an article about feng shui, does that give you the options of commenting my blog with just anything related to feng shui without being considered spam ?

Yahoo recently published "spam mutates" where a blogger throw in the tower for blogging due to annoyance with comment-spammers.

However, to me, that couldn't be all too bad because I would be earning Google Adsense money and it would help with SEO. To be honest, i kick start this blog by doing similar things to other blog. I could figure out any other better way to get my URL indexed to the search engines.

Get Dirty
Something has to get dirty. You can do SEO by just pressing a few buttons or registering to some site. There got be something special which others can't or lazy to get on. Otherwise, who should have the first ranking for say the keyword "feng shui".

If one doens't want to use SEO to achieve the objective, then you have to get your hand dirty by promoting your brand with respect to feng shui.

To give another example....
Imagine another company called Macrosoft whom also provider proprietary Operating system; competing with Microsoft. Microsoft doesn't have to do SEO because everybody would love to hear from them. Every technology companies would like to reference to Microsoft web site in order to make cases valid.

For Marcosoft, it has two options:
1. Work hard for 30-40 years to build the brand.
2. Resort to SEO to build the brand.

Both will get your hands dirty.

According to Google, the idea of SEO is illegal already.

Professional Spammers:
From "spam mutates", it is intriguing to learn that some people are making a living out of spamming.

Besides that, spam-filters (Software) could be infringing personal boundaries by analyzing emails' content.

SplogSpot is a site dedicated to collection of spams. It is useful for system engineers to configure its firewall and filters against the blacklists accumulated. Besides that, API is also provided for retrieving the blacklists in XML format into backend systems for filtering purposes.

How big is the spamming industry?

  • 10% of instant messaging traffic is spam - source
  • 10-15% of 70k new blogs created daily is spam - source
  • Personally, I receive 10-15 spams email daily per email account.

the indexes easily.
