Spam Blogging

I love these spam blogs, whose entire purpose is to advertise useless products in a humorous way. Take this one for example - Loss some weight online. Everything about how to loss some weith online. Cool, I'm in! I come across them fairly often using blogger's "Next Blog" button (top right). That button takes you to recently published blogs. Last year when I was messing with my template quite a lot, and republishing often, I managed to get a lot of "Next Blog" traffic. I'm assuming these spam blogs work on the same principle, which is why I run into them so often.

UPDATE: When continuing "Next Blog"ging from this example, no fewer than five in a row were spam blogs.
