My blog is getting spammed, but does Google know it?

Services for Real Estate Pros with Nucazza LLP & Home Buying Evolution, & Family Abstract, Inc

All of the sudden, i am getting these crazy 1 line comments on on the blogs i have posted.  First, I have no idea why someone would spend the time posting to all these blogs when they obviously didn't read them.  I liken it to "Robo-Signing" foreclosure documents without reading the brief and facts.  Alternative Compensation, Ala Carte Real Estate, Rebating\" width=Second, it was kind of deflating when I saw a plethera of comments only to realize, they were Spam, Spam Spam Spam, baked beans and Spam!

But wait... Does Google know they are spam?  Does Google know that these comments are not from real people but from a computer program just like Google?  Does Google give me and my trackback sites "juice" for these comments? In the end, am i advertising to Google or to the masses?  Google can get me to the masses, but without Google the masses can't get me to Google. 

Can anyone else use Google more times in a paragraph? 

  • Should I go through and delete them?
  • Should I respectfully contact the spammer and ask him to Spam some more?
  • Should I answer the comments to double my "Google Juice"?
  • Is the red zone for loading and unloading only?
  • Am I talking to a cloud, a computer or in the words of Bruce Springsteen,  "Is Anyone really alive out there"?
  • Who's more important.... Google or a customer?
  • Does it matter what's written or that "something" is written in the mind of Googlebots?
  • Did Gilligan ever get off that island?

I wrote this hoping that real human Active Rainers will give me some answers, now I'll sit back and wait, thanks in advance,

How funny!  I was thinking about Gilligan's Island this morning.  I don't know about Google and spam, but I always report those spammy comments and get my 10 points each.

Hi Glenn,  Just saw some spam on another post !   I haven't had this problem but I think AR wants you to notify them before deleting.  Until then, juice it up !!!

Glenn:  If you are talking about getting spam comments on your Active Rain posts... here is what to do. 

At the bottom right corner of that spam comment box... just to the left of the "time"... scroll over that area, and you will see an underlined RED link that says... Report a Concern.  Simply click on that link... which goes back to Active Rain... and then leave it alone.  Do NOT delete the comment, do not answer it with a comment of your own... do nuttin', honey.

Active Rain will trace the comment with their razzle-dazzle software, and try and put a stop to it.  If you delete the spam comment... Active Rain has nothing to trace.

And finally... if there is a "link" in that spam comment... I suggest you do NOT click on the link to see where it goes.  It could open you up to a virus, or worse.

And to Kerrie Greenhalgh at Active Rain... am I up-to-date here with my understanding of what to do with this spam stuff ?

I've never heard of spamming blogs. Hmmm. Brings up the age-old question - what in the world would motivate someone to spend the time setting something like that up? What's the pay-off? I just don't understand it.

I ask the same question about spammers and hackers all the time, "To what end"?
