Blog Spammers Take Aim at Google

Google Inc.’s free BlogSpot service has become a happy hunting ground for spammers cashing in on the easy integration of AdSense advertisements into the ‘push-button’ publishing tool.

Over the past few days, the situation has spiraled out of control, prompting outrage from bloggers and third-party blog search providers and an acknowledgement from Google that there’s a “tricky problem” to be solved.

An automated spam blog (splog) attack over the weekend was first flagged by Lockergnome’s Chris Pirillo, who accused Google of hosting a “crapfarm” of fake blogs.

Or better we call it SplogSpot.
