MyBlogLog Social Traffic Credibility and Attempts To Cripple Spammers

MyBlogLog can be a source of highly-targeted, relevant and free traffic if you know how to use it effectively.

But increasingly, spam marketers have been bombarding the social networking site, such that there is a toggle to view messages only from members of your social network (and cut out messages from non-members (potentially spammers).

MyBlogLog obviously views the matter seriously enough to take further measures.

Witness the latest salvo:

mybloglog

I was in the midst of posting messages to PepperJam’s Kris “Mr Pepperjam” Jones and Robyn Martin‘s MyBlogLog profiles. [To comment on the latest Meet the PepperJam Team video]

There’s now a daily message cap of about 20 messages sent per day.

[Check out the MBL blog post “Spam-a-lama-dama” for details]

In my opinion, MyBlogLog is one of the most, if not THE site, for white hat social marketers.

Having a quota on messages you send out will hurt you if you’ve:

  • A large network
  • Used MBL as your mode of communication with your community

On the other hand, will this anti-spam measure hamper spam marketers?

Well, they might create multiple profiles, and multiply the 20 messages by the number of profiles they create.

So it would eventually hurt legitimate users more than spammers.

I think the key here is looking beyond just the technology.

For social traffic strategies to work effectively, there has to be a human governance element involved. Which is the major pitfall of the “web2.0” traffic products out there now.

If your answer to create traffic is just to game Digg, del.icio.us, MBL is just to bank on technology alone, you’re doomed to fail. Or occasionally create blips of ultra bursts on your traffic charts.

Does that necessarily build a community? Or build a list of prospects?

Possibly, but I’d think that incorporating the human element will create a complete system, rather just give a 50% equation (based on technology only…).

[And to prove my point, I’m in the process of developing a social traffic system incorporating organic elements. Being holistic is important because there are just too many ‘incomplete’ products out there!]

For MyBlogLog and similar sites to succeed, the developers need to look further to incorporate a trust, credibility, or some form of reputation, that eventually ties into your message or posting quota.

If nothing else, take a page from the reputation systems incorporated into many of the forums across the net.

    I’ve been using MyBlogLog for just over a week now.
    I have seen a real improvement in traffic and gotten to know a few more bloggers from it.
    Only real problem I have seen with it are the ones who comment on the sites, and yet they do not seem to have actually visited the blog itself.
    Like you said, it’s not perfect, but it is effective.

    Protecting a company from the immense power of Google is a decision that large corporations need to take, particularly those involved
    in public sector services, education, manufacturing and financial
    sector. Serve email clients across the board: A SMTP server program makes allowance for all distinguished email clients like Outlook, Gmail, Eudora,
    etc. Their advantage is enabled by using the Internet
    to perform all actions.

    I’m really loving the theme/design of your website. Do you
    ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems?

    A number of my blog visitors have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.

    Do you have any suggestions to help fix this issue?

    Hello Kailash I landed on your wistebe when I did a google search for fixed deposit and TDS calculator. By far, your online calculator is the best of all the ones that I had to endure while searching. Thought of drawing your attention to what appears to be a small error in the tax calculation. I noticed that the taxes witheld was not using the TDS rate that was input for the calculation. May be I am missing something here. Can you post a reply with your insight that will benefit others as well. Once again, your calculator is something all banks should post on their wistebe. You can probably license this to them as no bank has anything that would even come close.

    Link exchange is nothing else but it is only placing the other person’s webpage
    link on your page at proper place and other person will also do same in support of you.

    Hi would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re working
    with? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different web browsers and I must say
    this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you recommend a good hosting provider at a fair price?
    Kudos, I appreciate it!
