I've been wondering why some of the A-link bloggers I've regularly interacted with (most notably Michelle Malkin) inexplicably did away with trackbacks after offering them on their blogs for many years.
Now we have the answer.
ALERT! There's a new plugin out there: Digi Auto Links --- it's
basically designed to trick blog owners to publish false trackbacks
and thus link to the spamming website.
This came from a well-known blogger via email ::: "Just a couple of days ago, I received a DiIgi Auto Link trackback from a well-established authority blog that I am sure most of you know and read.
Even some authority bloggers can't always say no to the lure of easy
blackhat link building techniques..."
Also there are a LOT of spammers on G+ - men and "women" from India - all marketing BS. I now delete all emails from G+ without even bothering to look at who is linking or circling me or whatever it is they do...
APPEAL! ::: Please let me know whenever you run across blogs that you've found are being kept not by humans, but bots. Read THIS post, and leave those rogue URLS in my comments box. Together we'll track 'em down and round 'em up!
