More foul stuff is coming our way in the concept of mass blog promotion. From what I can see the idea is that you sign up (& pay your money) and a fake blog post will be inserted into the blogs of members – and theirs into yours.
Good systems will be like LinkVault that give you some control over the types of content that appears but because a post corresponds to a page in most blogging systems you can also expect a huge explosion in the amount of junk on the web.
This is MEATY advertising
And UNHEARD of because it is
A) People keep it to themselves for use
B) Engines try and bury this knowledge!
Get thousands of pages linking to you immediately – all using a secret of the “Blog Bomb”. A valid, effective method that really will get you listed under any search word you want.
The permanent front page has to be a load of crap, and the design of the sites promoting it is simply awful. But you just know that novice website owners will think it’s magic.
And the truly awful thing? It probably will work, for a while.
