Wierd Incoming Links?


gglink.jpgI have been keeping track of my increasing traffic lately, and noticed much better rankings on technorati and mybloglog among others. However I was just looking through my incoming links and noticed this one from the  Google Gears blog with some wierd text in a comment. Looking at the blog, it appears to just be a link farm and adwords abuser that pulls in any mention of Google Gears (which I recently just posted an article from). They pulled in the text from my entire post based on those keywords and auto generated a post on their blog. Wierd spam traffic.

This is my blog. I started it back in 2006 when I was finishing my undergrad at SDSU, kept going as I started my career and completed my MBA, and what do you know I'm still updating over 10 years later... It contains a little bit of everything about me - I'm an opinionated asshole sometimes, definitely a nerd, a gamer, a husband, a manager for a consulting company, a DJ and a musician, a grease monkey and a motorcycle rider...and a whole bunch of other things that probably are too offensive to mention. This blog has a lot of stuff I find funny, a little I find serious, and tons of information about my various and plentiful hobbies. I hope you find something here that's interesting to you. I'd love to hear from you, so feel free to comment or contact me! Thanks for stopping by!

  • You got scraped by them, too, huh? Now you’re a “blog reaction” to the Google Gears Blog on Technorati. I found them just like you, which is how I found you 🙂 At least they don’t scrape the entire post content and you get a link back out of it–let Google deal with the AdSense abuse. They don’t appear to be terribly popular yet by Technorati standards, anyway. Congrats on the traffic spike!
