Comment SPAM will soon be a thing of the past!

Google, now joined by Yahoo and MSN Search, is taking steps to eliminate comment spam on this blog and all others.

In non-tech jargon, the reason that we get so many ads for pills and mortgages in our comments section is that those links help those sites appear higher in Google’s search engine. So, what Google is going to allow now is for the links to be automatically labeled “nofollow”, meaning that they won’t help the spammers, thus removing the incentive to post comments on blogs.

Hooray for Google!
