all the www’s a stage…

it’s not enough to email, Facebook, twitter, log into Java Life or even Second Life, nope. just about everybody is blogging these days.  i need a whole new vocabulary. today’s word is:

“SPLOG”

A splog is a fake blog generated by a machine with the purpose of generating higher search engine rankings for one or more web sites/pages. Machine generated content can even leave comments on legitimate blogs with links to the splog. I just read that over 70% of blogs (and over 75% of overall posts) on Google’s blog host “Blogger” are splogs. but did i get that factoid from a cleverly disguised splog?? Good grief.
