Apologies if I’m overreacting – it’s been a long day.
Has anyone else seen wierd trackbacks from elliottback dot com show up on their blogs, esp. WordPress ones? I just got an odd one, which simply led to a WordPress blog with zero original content – just trackback’d entries, which are all posted to that blog as if they were the other person’s blog post. Oh, sorry, they’re all credited as:
“Original post by blah blah and software by Eliott the Google Adwords shyster”
Of course, this guy apparently runs a bunch of other no-original-content blogs (from my admittedly 5 minute searching) which all include only targeted trackback posts from other blogs – and of course, a huge Google AdWords install.
Is it just me, or do I have some backing in being a mite pissed off? I mean, really, I’m totally small potatoes in the blogosphere, so I really don’t expect to be the target of leeches. (And Akismet makes spammers work invisible, which is perfect – thanks, Akismet-folk!)
