Can You Use the Words Spam, Useful and SEO in a Sentence?

Useful Spam and SEO. Who Knew?

no viagra, great sex or money offers but useful spam SEO info

So far I’ve been lucky. I only get an occasional message in my blog account’s spam folder. There haven’t been any offers for Viagra or secrets for improving my sex life or promises of unimaginable wealth from Nigerian princes. For some reason – for which I have no earthly idea – all of my spam has been from someone hawking an SEO Plugin, and inadvertently giving me useful SEO tips.

SEO = Search Engine Optimization

If you don’t know what SEO is, and you want to optimize your blog for the best search engine rankings, I recommend consulting the all-knowing Oracle Google. He has a wealth of SEO info – what it is, how to use it and why you should.

Or you can just continue reading this post.

Useful Spam. That’s Actually a Thing?

Turns out it is. Someone keeps sending me spam that is actually useful. Why is it useful, you ask? Because Mr. Spamborine Man tells me what my blog posts are missing in order to make them search engine friendly.

So far Mr. Spam Man has told me I need to:

  • use all three H tags in my posts
  • use keywords in my title and in my post’s URL
  • use keywords in the first paragraph and in the last sentence of the post
  • strive for a keyword density of 3-5%
  • use relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). I have no idea what that is and maybe don’t want to know.
  • include one internal link to a page on my blog
  • have images in each post with alt tags containing keywords

Thank You Mr. Spam Man

I learned all about SEO a few years ago when I built a website for The Rock. I haven’t been paying a whole lot of attention to it with this blog, but thanks to Mr. Spam Man I’ve been thinking about putting it to use in my posts.

The SEO WordPress plugin my spammer is selling does all the SEO work automagically, which would be nice. But it’s totally useless with a free WordPress account where plugins aren’t allowed.

So for now, I’ll just thank my lucky stars that, for once, spam has actually done something useful, like maybe improving my search engine ranking.

    Because I mentioned my use of Lisinopril in a recent post I am now inundated with incredibly useful spam highlighting the many opportunities I have to order my drugs online from random, yet fully legal, drug companies operating outside the USA. I am also assured that I will save astounding amounts of money by taking advantage of this opportunity.

    • It really is, isn’t it? I have been entertained by spam more times than I can count. My favorites are from people whose first language isn’t English. It’s fun to read all the ways they butcher English while trying to sound like they aren’t.

    I know, all he talks about is on page SEOs and stuff, and a link to a page that is totally unrelated to what he talks about.

    If someone keeps commenting on your blog with the same comment, read it, if there is a link to another page, don’t click it, if the comment sounds like it can be posted on any blog post and still make sense, and there is a link to another page, then it’s probably sent by a program, sending the same comment to any popular blog post. Those comments are extremely dangerous, it can lead to a download of some viruses, or a bunch of other things that can all impact your computer.
