A suggestion for Tumblr: Try to figure out a way so spammers can’t use this black-hat SEO (search engine optimization) technique. It’s dead simple to take advantage of, and as a result, some sites (such as our own) often drown in it. Today, for example, we got a ton of fake traffic from bots doing an obscure search on Google (see screenshots). Here’s a quick explanation as to what’s happening, as far as we can see:

  • first Black hat SEO types hit Google and type in this specific phrase — “site:tumblr.com ‘liked this’” — a common phrase on Tumblr due to the way it handles likes. 
  • then Then, sketchy bot types will create hundreds or thousands of fake Tumblr accounts whose URLs forward to a sketchy-looking site not on Tumblr.
  • result These sites end up getting hundreds or thousands of backlinks to their sketchy sites on Google — and all they had to do was like tons of people.

» But we have a temporary solution: Are you, like us, getting a lot of spam on your Tumblr? This is a likely reason. We’d like to offer a suggestion to solve the problem. If you know how to edit your theme in HTML, do a search for the phrase “{PostNotes}” and replace it with this: ”<!—googleoff: all—>{PostNotes}<!—googleon: all—>”. This prevents the notes from getting crawled by Google, which is good because it focuses your content, but bad, because any relevant content in reblogs won’t account for what shows up in search engines. This is really a problem Tumblr needs to look at — if they take out common phrases or make them invisible to search engines, everyone wins. But we hope this at least helps your sanity. It’ll help ours.

Come on lets be honest you have nofollow settings and you enjoy the traffic I know I do on my blog. I get on average close to 50 comments and I end up finding 2 or 3 that I will approve however I can live with that because I’m happy to find those comments of people actually there for the material and the traffic helps too.

The truth is everyone knows about this kind of stuff but for you to say its black hat is ludicrous its only black hat if its spam its only spam if they are doing it without consent. The point I am trying to make is you are the only one that has the power to approve or not.

I’m just here to develop my tumblr account by being social I do have FREE informative blogs that I am not trying to sell anything but the reason I do this is because I get Traffic this way TRAFFIC is the trump card in search engines. In-case no has noticed Google no longer gives page rank. However that site that gets all the traffic links to my other sites these links are great. in order have a great link to your money site have a blog that give away rather than sells.

NOOOOOOO! please don’t do it. Why did you create a Tumblr account?

I know why I did because I wanted the back-link juice. Traffic is traffic and traffic = popularity that converts to authority and by default higher PR 

I’d like to introduce you all to what I’d like to call “the problem.” If you think “back-link juice” is why Tumblr is awesome, get off of Tumblr. Sincerely, everyone.

Expect Many, Many Lawsuits From Ferguson
WASHINGTON — It’s been nine days since Michael Brown was shot, unarmed, in the middle of a street in Ferguson, Missouri, but civil rights and civil liberties legal advocates say the legal fallout from the shooting and its tumultuous aftermath are just beginning.  
“There will be lawsuits up the kazoo,” said Barbara Arnwine, the longtime president and executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, in an interview Sunday evening. “I think you’re going to see ripple after ripple of legal matters here in response to this outrageous situation.”

The world isn’t being destroyed by democrats or republicans, red or blue, liberal or conservative, religious or atheist — the world is being destroyed by one side believing the other side is destroying the world. The world is being hurt and damaged by one group of people believing they’re truly better people than the others who think differently. The world officially ends when we let our beliefs conquer love. We must not let this happen.

Let me also be clear that our constitutional rights to speak freely, to assemble, and to report in the press must be vigilantly safeguarded: especially in moments like these. There’s no excuse for excessive force by police or any action that denies people the right to protest peacefully.

Yes. This is when that stuff matters most. Thanks for the reminder. A few people (not naming names) keep forgetting.

Kinda hoping to leave the house: Wikileaks mastermind Julian Assange, who has been stuck in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for more than two years now. He&#8217;ll leave if they&#8217;ll let him (but they probably won&#8217;t).
