Spam traffic in email hits a 5-yr low »
The share of spam in email traffic decreased steadily throughout 2012 to hit a five-year low. The average for the year stood at 72.1% — 8.2 percentage points less than in 2011. Such a prolonged and substantial decrease in spam levels is unprecedented, said security solutions firm Kaspersky Lab. […] The main reason behind the decrease in spam volume is the overall heightened level of anti-spam protection. Another factor behind the falling levels of spam is inexpensive advertising on legal platforms. Spam is the use of electronic messaging system to send unsolicited bulk emails.
bro you don’t get noticed that way
Note from Ron: Spam linking is the worst way you can build a blog audience. There must be a book somewhere that tells people to do this. It amazes me because A. The people who mainly seeing it are followers that are… already following them. B. A reblog carries this data in most cases anyways.
So, it looks really bad aesthetically, it annoys the audience you already have, it’s incredibly tacky and it has basically no value. It’s autoplay music for deaf people.
Even Tumblr has acknowledged (though it’s so 2011) its growing spam problem, before and nprfreshair’s Melody Kramer has addressed this issue this way »
Dear Tumblr Spammers,
If you’re going to follow Fresh Air and then like 30 of the posts, why not like the most recent posts? If you’re simply trying to get people to find their way to your page, liking posts from last February — all in a row — probably won’t help.
"This morning, we filed suit in federal court in San Francisco against five of the most aggressive tool providers and spammers. With this suit, we’re going straight to the source. By shutting down tool providers, we will prevent other spammers from having these services at their disposal. Further, we hope the suit acts as a deterrent to other spammers, demonstrating the strength of our commitment to keep them off Twitter."
