Some bloggers live and die by stats-how many "hits" their blogs get, what their Alexa rank is, how long people spend reading their blog, and so forth. I understand the importance of this for business bloggers (i.e. bloggers promoting their businesses) and for bloggers who use their bloggers to advertise their writing or photography skills.
All I am is little ol' me, no business, no writing skills (well, maybe I need to rephrase that) and I knew what I would find when I checked my stats.
There is one post I wrote, back in 2012, that had an epic (for me) number of hits. Every once in a while, it still gets attention. It's, by far, my number one post in number of visitors. There's only one problem.
The attention all comes from spammers. There is one legit comment on the post. Yes, one I've deleted so many spam comments over the years that I should have kept a record of that, just for fun.
|Not a zombie, but close enough|
That one comment has gotten awfully lonely over the years, presiding over a post about zombies.What is it about spammers and zombies? I wish I knew.
I've decided that I want to give that post a bit of genuine blog love.
So, in the spirit of Halloween (and zombies), and shameless self promotion, I am going to ask my readers what I hope is a fun favor.
Visit that post: Yonkers Before the Zombies.
And leave a comment.
I could only wish reviving that post would make the spammers go away. But it would be nice to see this post get some genuine blog love for a change. And, over the next couple of days, I have a special treat for you. No tricks!
Do you have a post that seems to attract a lot of spammers?
