Log Spamming web 2.0 style
Earlier today I was thinking that I really need to start sharing more stupid ideas , well remember in the old when Log spamming had 2 benefits
1) open logs you got backlinks from
2) send enough fake referrers and the site owner would come and see what you had said or why you where linking to them
Enter 2009 and I and I had a light bulb moment, I was just checking a 404 error page report for a client, I then jumped over to Googles Webmaster Console to see if any Backlinks where pointing to the 404 pages, then I began to wonder how many other seo / webmasters do the same thing day after day.
Then I thought what if I just linked to a few people on pages that don’t exist that would show up in their WMC they would see the links pointing at a 404, then they would either
a) They just ignore me.
b) They at least click once to see what I had said about them, at least the landing page would tell them who I am.
c) They would contact me to get the link fixed, opening up the opportunity to make friends
