For a website with pretty much zero search visibility, this site does pretty well in terms of garnering as much attention from spambots as is comparatively possible.

A quick look at my Webmaster Tools gives a pretty good insight into what parameters those spambots are probably looking for.

That really is depressing.

I need to build some decent links to this site, but every time I find a decent site and ask to write for it, I get asked for money. Which, as I am someone who lives off wine and takeaways, I don’t have anyway.

One of the really creepy things is that lots of the links in all those spam comments are just 404s. The idea that someone set off a perpetual spambot and then just left it and forgotten about it, for some reason, boggles my mind. It makes me wonder how many millions of them are still going now.
