Spam has been around on the internet for as long as I can remember. Whether it is in my inbox or in the junk folder, even unsolicited mail through my letterbox, it has actually constantly existed, the problem we deal with now though that it is more advanced that it ever was. There are now sophisticated software programs than unscrupulous webmasters use to spam links to blogs and forums. The whole idea of a blog site or online forum is to participate in the community, spamming these sites is breaking what these sites believe in.
So why does it exist? The very same reason it always did, even when I was a child I remember getting spam through the letterbox stating you have won a brand-new vehicle or enter this wonder reward draw. The bottom line is that they are there to make money. Someone somewhere is making many dollars.
The other factor individuals spam connect to online forums and blog sites is to raise the profile of their own website. They will leave a spam remark in a blog which connects back to their site giving them a ‘backlink’. With adequate backlinks their site will increase in the online search engine rankings. You can see the theory here, however alas like anything that sounds too excellent to be real this definitely is. To have good rankings in the search engines you need quality backlinks normally with good material, not some spammy link from a blog. The good idea is all the major search engines are on to this form of spam and do not look kindly towards it.
Some individuals get put out by the web and e-mail as all they hear is the criticism of spam. It is a truth that we have to handle; it is constantly going to exist. We can just do what we can in our powers to fight it. Its like saying I am not having my post delivered to me anymore as I am fed up with spam, it’s the very same example.
If you run a blog site there are precautions that you can take against spam, one of the most popular being a CAPTCHA which are concerns or letters that you need to physically type into a form, spam can not navigate this as you need to think about what it is asking you and input the response. There is always good and reliable measures coming through to fight spam, my suggestion is that you keep up to date of any most current advancements and software application that will help you combat spam.
