Hello everyone from Maui, Hawaii. I’m on vacation and did not plan to post anything until next year but this spam caught my eyes. It is under my post Hacking vs Engineering vs Hacking.
Every since this blog started, I got a lot of spam comments. Mostly links to sell viagra and Hermes bags. One type is promote SEO product/service but likely fishing links to get admin access to the blog host. Mostly is a letter from their company’s CEO blah blah, pretty easy to tell until this one:
“Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword … the rest is spam and I deleted it.”
Someone actually put some thoughts into writing this spam and tried to summarize common mistakes that a blogger or website makes in SEO. It also mentioned “Panda” which is a pretty controversy thing that Google did. I should write a blog post about it later. So I approved the spam message, except I removed the spam part.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!
