Funny thing happened on the way to Google Trackbacks

leave a comment »

Today, we got an email from Google talking about some of their new tools.  This sounded interesting, so I went out to look around and check out the new feature.  I found something very humorous today and I thought a lot of you SEO guru’s out there would get an extra kick out of this.

There are  really fun tools coming from Google Analytics including Custom Dashboards and Social Trackbacks.   I decided to have a look at the Social Trackbacks and learn a little more.  I’ll post more about them in the future after I have had a chance to test it out.

So here is an official blog for Google talking about Social Trackbacks.  This is what I will be diving into later.  What did catch my eye was some very sloppy and suicidal attempts by a spammer to get  backlinks, or inbound links from other websites.  Have a look on the comments on the page.  As of today, they haven’t been moderated but here is a screenshot, because they will surely be removed soon.

Ya, someone out there was not thinking today. That’s all for now.  More to come.
