Thursday, October 27, 2005 and Sblogs

Up until recently was wide open to those who used sblogging as a marketing tool.

What is a sblog?

It is a blog that was created for spamming purposes. Automated software can easily create hundreds, even thousands of blogs whose purpose is to promote and provide links to some web site. These blogs have no value to anyone who might read one, their only purpose is to spam the search engines for promotional purposes. That's why they are called sblogs -- spam blogs.

A simple solution, that stops the automated software, is to require that a code, displayed in a distorted image, be typed in before a new blog entry is published. has instituted such a system and I cheer on this change with a big HURRAY!!
