Keep Spammers out of EzineMark
Spam is always one of the big headaches to every article directory and article readers. Spamming appears in different forms at different sections such as shout box, comment, article. We consider spamming as the most serious reason for article rejections and, of course, no one wants to waste time on reading useless information. In this blog entry, we will investigate some manners of spammers and how you can work with our site to deal with them.
Types of spamming
- Mass submission: Most of the time, spammers try to send their commercial articles to different categories. This article is about a shoe company but it is submitted to technology, lifestyle, entertainment and society domain.
Most cities have one (or two) stores that sell MBT Shoes. The problem is, local stores don’t carry all the styles and sizes. I tried MBT shoes sale on at two different local stores, and in both cases I was presented with shoes that were a half size too large (and told the heel should be loose when wearing them). The truth is, the heel should be snug. Both stores did let me walk around in them. I even walked outside the store, but you really need 20-30 minutes to get used to them. When you first walk in MBT Shoes, you tend to walk on the balls of your feet (instead of walking from heel to toe). You feel like you are walking on stilts, and you feel a bit unsteady. Trying them on in the local store actually reduced my confidence in them, Discount cheap MBT shoes because you don’t have time to get comfortable in them.Buy cheap mbt shoes on sale here !our mbt shoes,mbt shoes clearance (MBT trainers) are at lower price and high quality, 50%-70% discount.

- Improper length and font size: This technique is used most of the time and the maximum number of words in these spamming articles is defined under 350 or above 1000. In addition, spammers use tiny text to place their content. By doing so again and again, search engines may penalize the article directory.
- Not informative content: This article looks fine at first with well organization, no inserted links and full of numbers. However, the author submitted hundred articles with the similar content about HTC phone features which he copied from his site.
HTC is a Taiwanese handset maker and is one of the most prominent smart phone makers in the world. The company has a plethora of smart phones in its suit to cater to the need of different class of consumers. HTC Desire HD is a 123 x 68 x 11.8 mm dimensions phone with a weight of 164 gm and has fabulous screen display which offers amazing viewing experience to its holder. It has a 4.3 inches, 480 x 800 pixels , LCD capacitive touchscreen type with 16M colors. The screen size of 4.3 inches is quite on the larger side. Other features of the display are Gorilla Glass display, Accelerometer sensor for UI auto-rotate, Multi-touch input method, HTC Sense UI and Proximity sensor for auto turn-off. It has Vibration, MP3 and WAV ringtones alert types and is also provided with 3.5 mm jack with other features like Dolby Mobile and SRS sound enhancement.
The main purpose of this spamming technique is to spoof readers by repeated words or phrases about the products.
- Copyright infringements: Lazy authors never want to write by themselves. Their time for writing is used for searching available articles on the Internet which is related to the topic they are going to write, then edit somehow so as to add advertisements anywhere they like. Articles containing phrases like “ watch movies”, “click here”, “read me”, “download at” are all spamming and violated copyright.
- Wrong submitting steps: There are few of professional writers forgetting to fulfill into required sections correctly. Those who have intention of spamming often insert only links to their site or copy the whole article body and paste it into the author bio. Author bio is a place for author to shine and for readers to understand more about the author. Any ambiguity just makes readers feel untrustworthy.
BLOG COMMENT or SHOUTBOX SPAMMING
Unlike article spammers, blog/ comment/ shoutbox ones spend less time on each post but they appear in front of the public at higher frequency. Taboos, profanities and pornography are used many times to annoy other users. This following form of greeting is also used frequently to call more attractions from the crowd.
