A spam blog, sometimes referred to as a splog, is a blog in which its creator attempts to promote affiliated web sites in order to increase the search engine rankings of associated sites or to simply sell links/ads.
They try to create back links of affiliate web sites, to artificially inflate paid ad impressions from visitors and/or use the blog as a link outlet to sell links or get new sites indexed. Spam blogs usually contain made-up text or content stolen from other web sites. They also have a lot of links to sites associated with the splog creator which are often disreputable or useless web sites.
Splogs have become a major problem on free blog hosts such as Blogdrive. These fake blogs waste disk space and bandwidth as well as pollute search engine results.
What these spam blog creators don't understand is that web search engines are very aware of their behavior. It has become quite easy for search engines to identify and flag these blogs, then penalize the associated web sites.
