Spammers are getting ever sneakier with their attempts to build page rank for their prn sites. Here's a lovely trick I discovered today, thought I would give you all a heads up on this so you can recognize it on your own blog.
The following comment was left on a Toad in the Hole entry on my site:
I long did not do(make) " Toad in the hole " as has overlooked(forgotten) as to do(make) the first recipe. Now I know, already did(made) also to me it is pleasant... And in general I adore is tasty to prepare.
The question to the author is possible? Which flour(torment) it is necessary (you see from it the taste depends) and what else it is possible to use sausages?
The warning to me was that the email address given was a .ru account. I've never encountered a single legitimate email or comment from a .ru account. The URL given was www.eaglepasslite.com. The website looks perfectly boring, but legit. However, if you do a "view source" from the browser, what is revealed is a lot of hidden text, all links to prn sites.
The lesson? Check the websites of your commenters. If they look completely benign, they just may not be.
And, if you care about the Google page rank of your own site, be extra vigilant, as Google will penalize your site if it links to known spam pages.
