Fake Posts on Forums

When I first saw one of these in the forums I administer, I thought, “Cool. Someone’s really taking the time to put up a nice post!” But I soon realized that this was just another Google link game. They put up a nice post in your forums, with links and keywords to suit their needs.picture-56.png

They’re generally along the lines of “Convert YouTube Video to work on your iPhone” or something similar, and the text is littered with links to revenue-producing sites (sorry my screenshot isn’t the greatest).

Anyway, if you administer forums, and you see posts like this, DELETE THEM! I get about one a week, and I use Captcha and everything for registration. These guys are working hard, so it must be paying off for them. Stop the nonsense!
