Exclusive First Look: SU.PR – Stumble Upon’s New Traffic Builder

http://www.fourhourworkweek.com/blog/2009/06/09/stumble-upon-supr/ I spotted an announcement of SU.PR not on StumbleUpon, but on that charmless Internet-celebrity Tim Ferriss’ site. Here’s an excerpt which sums up both my disgust with Ferriss and my ever-growing disgust with StumbleUpon. The result of it all? More traffic. StumbleUpon has jumped to almost 10% of my total traffic per week, delivering […]

jcastellanos713s reviews – StumbleUpon

http://jcastellanos713.stumbleupon.com/ Yes, her comments are outrageous and offensive, but the mass of Stumblers currently lambasting her page fail to mention – or note – that almost all her Stumbles are for her own site. Not only is she (?) a troll, (s)he appears to be trolling for SEO results. Double-ugh.

Search engine optimization – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Search_engine_optimization In an effort to understand exactly what these SEO blighters (ahem) do, I thought I’d Wikipedia. Turns out my hunches were correct: An SEO technique is considered white hat if it conforms to the search engines’ guidelines and involves no deception. As the search engine guidelines are not written as a series of rules […]

Emilymiller22s favorite websites – StumbleUpon

http://emilymiller22.stumbleupon.com/ A message in my inbox from EmilyMiller22 ends with: Note: This is not commercial message it is purely for the social cause. A Stumbler with a social conscience, to be sure, but apparently her social conscience fades out where spam is involved.

Building a Large Audience For Your StumbleUpon Account | SMS

http://www.searchmarketingstandard.com/blog/2007/04/building-a-large-audience-for-your-stumbleupon-account.html A consequence of SU’s recent news popularity is that we’re seeing more self-promoting Stumblers and spammers. I differentiate between the two, because generally the self-promotion types contribute something to the service. This website, however, I’m lumping in with the spammers. It’s a how-to on exploiting what is, in my opinion, SU’s weakest link – […]

E-mail spam – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E-mail_spam It’s a sad day – for the first time ever, my Spam count is above a hundred. Chillingly, it’s only 4:00, so there’s likely a lot more out there with my name on it. Well, not my name; that’s one of the hallmarks of Spam, innit?

http://www.broadcastemailgroup.com/welcome.html These guys have been spamming me to promote their email (read: SPAM) services, using one of my own email addresses.
