Trackback Spam

By Deane Barker on April 11, 2005

Have any other blog owners noticed a marked shift in spamming? Comment spam used to be the big threat, but spammers have suddenly (in the last two weeks, perhaps) shifted to trackback spamming. For every one comment spam I get these days, I’m getting five bad trackbacks.

Anyone else?



  1. Yep – seeing it on some ExpressionEngine sites I admin. Just turned it all off, since for the audience it was meaningless.

    Frankly have never seen that much value to trackbacks – maybe if I had more commenting / action.

    For that I’d have to write stuff that was more interesting…;)
