Wyndham Hotel SEO Comment Spam

Comment spam is a huge problem for all webmasters. I couldn’t even begin to calculate how many hours I’ve spent over the years fighting the problem.

When large companies engage in comment spam, I think people should speak up.

Here’s some WordPress comment spam with a link to Wyndham Cusco’s website.

Often what happens in these situations is that a company hires an SEO company that then outsources the work again to cheaper offshore workers. Those cheaper, offshore workers often do very low quality work.

Someone definitely put effort into posting that text around the Web. Here’s a screenshot of a list of websites that have that exact same comment spam text on them:

Here’s one page that was spammed with the same comment where the spammer didn’t even bother to strip out the formatting from Microsoft Office (“mso”).

Tip: don’t hire “link builders” who spam blogs and forums.

UPDATE: another look at the comment queue and there were three versions of the same comment spam posted.
