I've noticed that Technorati has been happily eating up scraped and cloaked blog spam for ringtone sites, among other things, like it's fucking candy.
Let's use a search on my blog name as an example:
Click on those links and it's always to the same spammy page name like these hosted on theplanet.com of course:
http://artinexis.net/#comment-341One server is 22.214.171.124 or 79.58.5746.static.theplanet.com with these domains all spewing ringtone ads:
about-levitra.netAnother annoying server is 126.96.36.199 better known as 6c.58.5746.static.theplanet.com which has these goddamn domains:
talonpro.comOr this fucking spam filled server host 188.8.131.52 hosted by our fucking friends 6a.58.5746.static.theplanet.com:
Here's the same shit about ringtones they all show:
How about you just set the phone on buzz, stick it in your pocket, and you'll never miss a call or be confused it's someone else's phone ringing, and best of all you can do it without lining the pockets of the cell companies or perpetuating this spam. Better yet, just shove that phone up your ass as most people that feel the need to never miss a call by using goddamn custom ringtones are probably talking out of their ass anyway. While you're at it, shove some custom phone face plates and a nice blue tooth headset up your ass too, but I digress.
WAIT A FUCKING MINUTE...
I think I see a pattern here 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168...
Let's try 22.214.171.124 and see what we find:
asmort.netMore ringtone spam spam spam....
Or let's try 126.96.36.199:
More spam spam spam spam spam!
OK, this is obviously a big operation with lot's of shit domains serving up spam on lots of IP's, I'm bored with this already, if you want to help fill in more blanks with this ringtone spammer go to Domain Tools Reverse-IP page and type in the IP address in that range and see what's on the servers.
Maybe they should change their name to Spamorati as they seem to love these fake blogs reposting old posts.
BTW, if you need help with automating the identification of spam over at Technorati just drop me a line as I'd be more than happy to show you how to automate the process for a small fee!
The things I could teach them on ways to clean up their listings and improve their service would boggle their minds.
