Subject:I don't understand this blog
Time:04:21 pm
Like a lot of people, I have a Google alert set up for my name. Mostly it finds stuff that I've posted to RGP, but not always.

There's this weird blog that shows up about once a week: http://uxx1baby.blogspot.com/ It seems to be completely harmless, and doesn't seem to be spamming for anything. I have no clue whatsoever what it actually is, though.

Anybody?

As far as I can tell, there are no links except blog-internal ones. And no ads.

Step 1: set up a blog on blogger. Enable "post via email"
Step 2: set up a "google alert" to email the "post via email" address once a day any searches that match "babylon"
Step 3: Wait for a good pagerank
Step 4: Put up advertisements

This kind of blogspam is increasing at a rapid rate. It's worse than domain speculation.

Ah, thanks. I didn't consider the possibility that it might be larval.

I can't imagine that this particular scam will last long. Google doesn't want sites like this to have good pagerank, and I'm sure that smart people at Google will soon figure out how to detect sites like this and drastically downgrade their pagerank.

I read a few sentences and it started to get painful, so I stopped.

No clue.

At first I thought it was for giving info to people who work in a department of a company, but with the more religious / inspirational posts, perhaps it is for an not-for-profit or non-profit organization.
