Today someone posted a full article as a comment on my blog, including the “About the Author” with multiple links to their website. I’d ask that you please not do this. You can post a link to a relevant article you’d like to refer to in your comment, or even send me an email suggesting it for an article, but do not post the full article as a comment, especially not with the “About the Author”!
Also, what brought up my warning flags that this was a new form of comment spamming is that the entry in which this person posted their comment was that the entry wasn’t exactly related to the comment. It was in the same general area (real estate), but it didn’t fit with the post they commented on.
In any case, I’m going to give the person the benefit of the doubt and assume this was an honest mistake, even though I suspect otherwise. Today’s entry is also to let you all know that any such comment spam in the future will be automatically deleted.
UPDATE: For those of you who are interested, I posted the potential implications in more detail of this in my other SEO related blog (LearningCentre.com).
