Spam blog creators are panicking and Google might not be a lazy as I thought they were, because spam blogs are under attack and it appears that Google might be cracking down on them aside from the ridiculous “flag” option they now have in place.
As part of my ongoing investigation into these guys I’m on a number of their mailing lists under various email addresses, and I got this in the email today from Blogbunner promoter Rick Butts, who we last featured on August 3 when Yahoo! started cracking down on My Yahoo! users using the service to get indexed only. I’ve kept it in full for reference without editing it. I’m sure it will make you smile as much as I did when I read it, although you’ll note that as usual they are promising big changes to try and keep their gullible clients on side. I await with interest to see what the new program is.

Subject: What to do? Junk page sites being de-indexed fast
My friend emailed me today and told me that his Adsense fell from $1000 a day to $100 in the last couple of days.
He has been extremely successful building junk pages – and now he is getting the de-indexed blues.
John, there is a real sea change in the marketplace of AdSense publishing. Look around you.
The search engines are shutting these sites down faster and faster, and the blogs are figuring out how to delete junk accounts, and even the newsfeeds are blocking some pings.
The handwriting is on the wall – and it’s time for the next big thing.
1. We hope to have BlogBurner set to stop using Blogger by Wednesday, Thursday at the latest.
Nana has come up with an absolutely brilliant idea to replace the blog post altogether – we can’t tell you HOW we do it – but between that and the new turbo feature many of you have already been seeing results from (including me!) Blogburner will obliterate any other tool for getting your pages indexed – and no more worries about Blogger, or any other thing getting shut down!
2. Go to New Orleans to Jack Humphrey’s Mardi Gras Internet Marketing Seminar.
(next bit deleted because it was just a plug to some seminar)
PS: Stay tuned for the new 3.0 release of Blogburner! Heck, since it won’t use a blog – we have to name it something else – be we have so much traffic to the site – what should I do?
