Someone explain to me how this works.
You write a post about smacking down a sales clerk and you get a comment like this:
I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great. I do not know who you are but definitely you’re going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already Oczko Cheers!
luminess makeupYou accept every one the way he is! I felt very welcomed and secure.
The strikeout is a link to an anti-age cream review website. Oh, puleeeze. These people are paid to review creams that will help me defeat the effects of time not waste company time posting flattering comments on an obscure blogger’s blog.
And if you don’t know how you got here then maybe your time would be better served taking a class in hand-eye coordination. It’s really pretty simple. I find my way to all sorts of blogs on a daily basis even with bags under my eyes.
Do you think people really click on a link found in a comment like this and stay on your website for anything longer than a nanosecond? They’d have more luck if they said something like:
Someone recommended your blog and as I was reading your exceptional writing, I took at closer look at your face and noticed some fine lines and wrinkles. I can send you a free sample (extra large) of this amazing anti-age cream that my company makes. We offer our full-time employees great pay and full health benefits, and we do not test on animals. It retails for $10.99 and 80 per cent of the purchase price goes to help pay for surgery for car crash victims.
Okay…well. I still won’t stick around to get my free sample but someone other than me might. I’m just saying…is a little originality too much to ask for?
What’s your best spammer spam?
PS — I don’t have wrinkles. I have finely-etched laugh lines.
