  Bloglinker.com is cool but has issues

How to stop scummy spammers in blogs Many of us love Bloglinker.com but unfortunatly it has been attacked by scummy spammers. This academic beautiful talk aims to show you how to bring the efforts of the evil to nothing!

Here is the scoopOne of the best tools in bloglinker is the ability to specify a category for each link. Be sure to use only lower (or upper) case and think of about two or three. Then add each category (seperatly like this blog if you link).

Now the Scuz links don't auto add... or rather they do but they don't show up untill you give them a category. This puts you in control. This wont stop people abusing this brilliant site but it will stop them hurting you and taking advantage. Furthermore you can set sites that are added to be automaticly hidden and thus not show up even when visitors click "view all my links".

Now I'd love for Max at bloglinker to be able to have time to add a rating system that could vote the nasty sites out of existance, my a topsites system too? (If he does want to add a topsites into the bloglinker copy n paste code then there is some free PHP code to be found if you vote for me at Mad-Den Top sites [link below].)

So that's how to fustrate the evil peep's. That'll teach the scummy sleazers!

Thank you for the tip. I just got one of the nasty links a couple of weeks ago. I had to delete it. I didn't want my link on their site either. Luckily...it's only happened once.
That's OK pleased to have helped.

Bloglinker is probably the best link manager for blogs available free anywhere!
Unfortunatly many things on-line are going to get abused by "scummy spammers" and that's just a fact of life. The real trick is in how you deal with it.

The Link club. A dotty bunch of blogs all linking to each other for the simple reason we are all mates in real life.

You want to join you say? Hmm... better start telling everyone how great these blogs are then!

Please note:

paris hilton, eminem, britney spears and other girls were not involved in makeing this Blog.

green day, lindsay lohan, carmen electra, jennifer lopez, 50 cent & girls gone wild compleatly failed to inspire anypart of this creation.

This is not anime and we did not cause tsunami regardless of what you may have been told.

We do not usher in new games with weather related lyrics.

tattoos of thongs, jessica simpson and the word "dictionary" are not only unconected but unconnected with us in any real and meaningful way.

The Beautiful Talker is not ashamed to be a bloke even though he might get less links and less clicks. However it says this low down so you judge first on content first.
