For some reason I see that I am on this list from CashforComments.com (yes a nofollow link for you buddy). And I want to state here that I didn’t apply to be on this waste of space and I don’t endorse this stupid effort to get links to my site (or to any other site). Yes this is a post in anger. Now I don’t know who added me, as they never asked me, so for the mean time, this anger will be vented towards the person who started the train off…
My his site is really hard on my eyes, what color would you call that ? Snot Green ? 😀
Who is CashForComments ?
CashForComments (yes 1 link was more than enough) is run by a guy called Prija Phaphouampheng (my that is a mouthful), who likes to call him self “sneaky bastard” online (snivelling more like). He does seem to come up strange ideas, like offering $1 to his daily top posters, or an idea about making a movie about bloggers. The movie idea might not be so bad, but he wants to have some prize where he will give a car away, plus one to his kid sister. Now what does your sister have to do with the movie ? Will the winner win access to her too ? He’s also asking people to sponsor the car with $100 donations. emmm, how about no ! He even reminds me of Alfalfa from the Little Rascals. Do you see the similarities ?
Link trains operate (as far as I know) by you adding yourself to a list, and reposting the list. Cool and simple, eh ? Link trains are basically a way for people who are at the top of the list, to get many links back to themselves. But really it is a form of spam and doesn’t really bring anything to the content of the page. Being someone on a list of 50 other bloggers, which is reposted on 50 different locations will fire off alarm bells at Moutainview and won’t help your SERPS much. For an example of what train SPAM looks like, you can go here.
