Bottom feeder marketers attack blogs

Just when you thought blogging was the new frontier, the ugly past rears its head.

Here’s what I’m talking about.

Blogs are great ways to get your news and opinions out there for the world to see.

And people who read blogs can comment back to the author to start a conversation, which is cool.

However, I’ve started to notice comments like these on my posts:

“You fine marketer. I humble at your insight. Also, check out my site on Google ad words.”

In other words, messages from bottom-feeder marketers who are grasping at straws to get any kind of free exposure any way they can.

The format appears to be one line of flattery (the bad English and grammar is optional) and a pitch to their site.

I don’t know if I am madder at these idiots who are posting to my blog, or the jerk who thought up the idea and is probably selling the concept in a $597 “secrets” package.

Actually, I’m not really mad since I have the ability to kill these messages so they don’t muck up my blog. I am actually laughing that they think this idiotic tactic will make them rich.

Moral of the story: Check your blogs to make sure they aren’t getting mucked up with pseudo messages.
