More cleaning up..

As well as continuing with the previously mentioned tasks, I am now cleaning up the data on the more details pages.

Several hundred incorrect feeds have been removed (automated) and around the same number have been either deleted or moved by hand where the automated tool didnt spot them.

Again, I am using this as a learning experience, and slowly building up the toolset to keep the directory clean.

Still a long way to go, can only handle so many in one day, but already its taking less time to read the new posts and update the database, as its not having to trawl through as many dead entries now.

I also noticed quite a few blogs had been using the ’submission url’ field (meant for sites such as blog directories or blog hosts to put in their add url or create blog url etc) as a spam link to their other blogs, or sites. Those are being deleted, not automated yet, but will be soon (for most of them).

As always there will be ones that need to be hand checked, and I am also thinking of keeping an eye on who is abusing the system like this, and booting the persistant offenders, along with their submissions.

Obviously Im not talking about the odd mistake, or wrong entry now and again, but the people who submit many, many blogs, and are trying to game the system (some so called professional SEO companies, who usually cant even get their own URL right are the worst offenders, no offence to any genuine SEO companies, but their are some right cowboys out in the world….)
