Google's Blogspot Contains 75% Spam

Share

A study of the WebmasterWorld states that 75% of all blogs on Google's blogspot are spam.

According to this study the top 15 doorway domains consist of 14 domains, where the spam percentage is over 74%. This means that in four search results of current study, three sites turned out to be spam. The researchers scanned 1000 most searched queries: 'phentermine' on blogspot.com and the query 'ringtone' on hometown.aol.com. The WebmasterWorld experts easily identified more than a half of the search results as spam.

The following list shows the spam percentage on 'top doorway domains':

- blogspot.com77%
- netscape.com74%
- hometown.aol.com84%
- hometown.aol.de91%
- oas.org78%
- xoomer.alice.it77%
- home.aol.com95%
- freewebs.com52%
- blogstudio.com99%
- maxpages.com81%
- usaid.gov85%
- blogsharing.com93%
- sitegr.com100%
- torospace.com95%
- blog.hix.com100%

The list shows that some of these blogs are used exclusively, or almost exclusively, for spam. The main reason for such a torrent of splogs is the fact that these sites provide blog space for free, just to attract more traffic.

The next list show the spam percentage of spam sites on 'top-level domains' (TLD):

- .info68%
- .biz53%
- .net12%
- .org11%
- .com4.1%

The aim of this research shows that at the moment Internet actually consists of spam and if we think about it: what would have happened if certain World Wide Web structures, among which Google, Yahoo and other search engines, had not fought spam?

Generally spam masquerades as something you "subscribed" to, so they have an "unsubscribe" link at the bottom. About 80% of the time they honour this, if you tell them to stop.

Blogspot lately is excellent at removing sites which are spam, or are being spammed. They have a form, just mark it spam and enter the URL and a few words about how/where you are getting it. They take them off in an hour or two. I have had about 100 spam sites suspended there in 2 weeks.

Ooops - I have .info domain for my blog:

Though about 5 minutes ago, I just registered:

This is because my friend's SpamAssassin flagged my email as spam largely because of the .info TLD.
