Spam and Google?
Huh. I have no expertise to be able to judge whether this is a crying wolf scenario, but the Blog Herald lays out a pretty empassioned plea for Google to clean up spam blogs, which it says are often hosted using Google's blogging technology. The risk, they write is that blogosphere goes through a serious downturn over the next couple of years, as legitimate blogs get crowded out of search results by spam blogs or deluged by spam comments.
Duncan Riley writes. "Recent reports indicate that at times up to 90% of the pings to services such as Weblogs.com and Technorati are from spam blogs."
So are things as worrisome as they write? It's a well argued post.
