Spammers need better targeting algorithms

I don’t check this blog’s stats much; my other blog is the one I focus more on these days. Since I just published something here, I decided to clean up the spam.

Why would you auto-spam a programming blog, in South Africa, with something about “cheap eggs UK”? For that matter, why would you target any blogs with spam about fucking buying eggs? If you want to get some cheap-ass eggs, do you scan random WordPress blogs to find them, for fuck’s sake?

    Blog spam doesn’t work very well anymore. The spam targets google bots not blog readers. The keywords ‘uk eggs’ in this case may have little to nothing to do with the spam link. Sometimes there isn’t even a link, you’d think it’s useless but it’s there because google bots have evolved simple link scanning. They are still easy to fool, that’s why blog spam is full of garbage.
