Do you know a Splog?

Splog is short for a “Spam Blog”. This is a blog with absolutely no useful information made for targeting search engines.

Most of the slogs I have seen gather their content automatically usually gathering that from other sites by robbing their feeds or by random generation of content.

What is their true purpose I sometimes wonder but they sure can be a pain for blogs from which the content is stolen from.

Anyway, you can help fight them.
For one, you can report them to SplogSpot, which is a site keeping track of splogs.

Fight Splog! lists a few other methods that can help you .. er .. fight splogs 😉

Following comment and blog spam, this is yet another evil that is raising its head and we once again need to do our best to stop it.
