You have to laugh sometimes…

One of the frequent tasks carried out here at LS Blogs is going through the queue removing unsuitable entries, or correcting mistakes in some cases.

Today, I found one entry that really put a smile on my face.

It was for a manual blog submission service, the type where you pay a company and they submit your blog to directories.

Well, you would assume that if they are submitting to directories for a living, they would be able to do a great job of their own submission for their own site.

Well, apparently not….

The description was as follows.

[NAME REMOVED FOR PRIVACY PURPOSES] Shop offer manual submission of your blog and RSS or Atom Feed to blog web directories, feed search engines, news services and web-based RSS aggregators at affordable price to improve your blog

But the kicker, was the url they entered……

http://Manual Blog Submission Service

Yes, you read that correctly they actually did put in

“http://Manual Blog Submission”

as the web address for their own site.

They must have realised their mistake afterwards so they submitted it again, with the correct url in this time.

But needless to say, BOTH submissions were in the wrong category completely - they did not even look for the right category to submit them into….

These people take other peoples money to submit to directories, and they cant even get put their own URL in correctly. Scary….

Needless to say, it went in the bin, along with the a couple of hundred of other bad submissions I found when looking today.

Some people go to great lengths to try to get in *multiple* submissions that are all pure spam, they must spend quite some time, but its all wasted when the delete and ban button gets pressed - and it also means that if they did submit a genuine entry along with the rest of the spam, they all go, even the genuine one…
