Google has implemented a new technology that allows bloggers to prevent comment spammers from profiting from their malicious activities.
Comment spammers leave links to their V!agrA selling websites and other scams in the comments of weblog postings. Search engines follow those links, raising the profile of the page in question. All you can do as a blogger is manually delete the postings.
But Google now offers a better solution: by inserting a special tag, bloggers can instruct the search engine to ignore links in certain sections of their pages. Major providers of blogging software including Six Apart, MSN Spaces and Live Journal have signed on. They will automatically include the tags in the pages so individual bloggers don't have to do a thing.
Even Yahoo and MSN Search have signed on. The battle against spam brings us all together.
