In the world of internet marketing, search engine optimization (SEO) is a big deal. It’s the way we get search engines like Google to list our sites near the top of search results. One of the results of this SEO craze is SPAM, comments posted to a blog with one and only one purpose, to plant a backlink to a particular web site. The idea is that the more sites that link to your site, the better your SEO standing.

When the world makes no sense, let’s look to SPAM to find some meaning. The following gems are actual unedited morsels for your entertainment.

Something I have seen in all your blog posts and I wanted to compliment you on is how good your writing and spelling are. How did you learn to write so good? It looks like you have a degree in writing from a College.
Finally, an honest assessment — heck he sounds like most of the conservatives who comment here. Mmmmm maybe this wasn’t SPAM at all?

How is it that just anybody can write a weblog and get as popular as this? Its not like youve said something extremely impressive –more like youve painted a pretty picture about an issue that you know nothing about! I dont want to sound mean, right here. But do you truly think that you can get away with adding some pretty pictures and not genuinely say something?
Happy New Year to all friends and loyal readers!
