Spammers Are Still Lazy – But At Least They Are Creative

When it comes to WordPress blogs & indexation I’ve always gave out the advice that “You know you’re indexed when your blog starts getting spammed“.  I relaunched my blog on the 15th January 2010 following a two year 301 redirect to my employers site.  Within days 2 weeks I had automated spam from a lazy spam bot.

The spam has continued in abundance which is a good sign that the blog is being indexed more and more (in a round about false-positive way), and this little one caught my eye…

Are spammers getting more creative?  Looks geniune doesn't it!

I had to actually check that this wasn’t spam but the URL gave it away.  Are spammers getting more creative or was this just a one off?
