|New Civilization News: Blog, Ping and Spam|
18 comments4 Feb 2005 @ 00:40 by dewf @188.8.131.52 : seems like a lot of work...
looking at all the work people have to do to make sure their spamming is successful-- and constantly updating their tools for the arms-race that ensues-- doesn't seem like much fun. in fact, it seems pretty much like a normal job. i wouldn't doubt if the reason most people do this sort of "work" is purely because of inertia-- they've been doing it so long, and have gotten themselves so deep in it, that they wouldn't make as much money by trying something new (which might be a lot more legitimate in other people's eyes)
while one might exploit a niche exclusively for a short while, it just seems like it will soon become infested with other like-minded opportunists. which i guess is the curse in trying to make a quick buck through shady means-- when you're not fighting the public at large, or law enforcement, you're competing with other folks doing the very same thing. whereas above-board companies can get extraordinarily rich by using governments in their favor, to enforce copyright and patents.

Legitimate or not, there's a LOT of money to be made - and the problem is the PPC model itself (target the funds and the rest will follow). A "Lot" of money to the tunes of $10's of thousands per month relatively easily, if the system is setup correctly. Not that I necessarily condone the practice, but seeing work I used to make a descent living at here in the U.S. being outsourced to India and Russia for $5.00/hr, I certainly understand the temptation.

What exactly is the benefit of "Blog and Ping"?
13 Jun 2005 @ 20:39 by ming : Blog and Ping
Well, basically it is some normal inherent functions in blogs. But that term is usually used about a somewhat fraudulent use of those mechanisms.
A blog is a website that facilitates personal publishing. It consists of articles that are presented in chronological order, with the most recent being most prominent.
There are various "ping" services which are used by the blog to tell various blog indexing sites that there's something new on this blog. That will usually make them come and pick up and index the most recent content. Which means that other people can find it shortly after it has been published.
Some scam artists have noticed how well blogs get indexed and how well they show in search engines. Basically because they usually contain original content that is frequently updated and because they have many incoming and outgoing links. But the scam artists think that if they just put any which content in a blog-like format, and they then ping the various blog indexing services, they'll get the same result. And to a certain degree they will. But only by misusing some shared easily accessible features for posting repetitive junk. It is a type of spam.
So, do the honest thing, it works much better. Post real stuff that people actually would want to read. And, yes, use all the available services that you can ping to, and sign up for any blog directory you can find.
A real blogger has something to say. If you're only thinking about how to promote your product to as many people as possible, whether they really are interested or not, then you've picked the wrong playing field.

I am an ezine publisher that converted my email publication to an RSS feed, back in 2003. I have never regretted changing mediums, because with RSS I have greater reach. The search engine rankings are a nice bonus for publishing consistent real content, but the interaction with my readers is my favorite perk.
Blog spammers are going to destroy themselves and everyone else using this medium. Just as spammers crippled the effectiveness of email marketing and communications, they will do the same to blogging and feed publishing. In all their efforts to gain rankings, they will put the search engines in the position of ignoring real blog contnet in a drive to keep the search results relevant. What's to stop Google or Yahoo from saying ENOUGH! and ban all blogs from their results? They don't have to spider them, and they won't if there becomes a glut in bogus blog sites. All they have to do is change their search criteria and send the bots down a different path.
Spamming software creators will be laughing all the way to the bank, with John Q.'s money, and poor John won't be able to get through the door at Google.
That's just my two cents...

Business is Business and it doesn't matter what industry you look at, you will always see people cutting corners and doing things they shouldn't be doing just so they can save a buck here and make a buck there.
The Internet is no different and you shouldn't be suprised about that. The Internet provides a more level playing field where rich and poor alike can get involved and make their buck. Unfortunately, it also offers those people who prefer to cut corners and scam there way into that buck, the same level playing field, so you are going to see a higher level of it.
Blog and Pinging IS important though. It enables anyone to get their site looked at by the search engines quickly, but it is still up to you to put good, quality content on your site, and if you don't, it doesn't matter how much you do, you aren't going to make it anywhere.
In the meantime, people who are going about their online business the right way, should continue using services like www.PingTheEmpire.com to ping their blog entries. If you have provided Quality Content on your site, then you can only win!

I'm constantly amazed at much effort people will put into these techniques versus spending the time to build an actual business.

if you see 2 cents google ads running by side, like in blogburner, you should know they do not worth a cent.
