WordPressDirect – quick, easy, and spamtacular

Share

spam-blogging.jpgEver wanted to create your own blog, but you’re far too lazy? WordPressDirect is for you. It’s a third-party site (not affiliated with WordPress) that will create a blog for you, based on a few search phrases. It’ll then pull content in from the rest of the web, and automatically post it for you. Voila. A blog, with zero effort.

Except that this is the spammiest thing ever created. It’s essentially a make-your-own-spam-blog tool. What’s a spam blog? Well, if you’ve ever run a blog over the years, you’ll know that there are sites out there that flat-out copy your content, word for word, and put up ads next to it. This service does exactly that, at its basic setting. It doesn’t add anything – it’s just making money off other people’s hard work.

So for that reason, I’m not going to link to it. Here’s a link to a far better website instead:

  • Do you have a link to the offending article, car? Only I think you might be exaggerating a bit…

    • I think you’re overstating the case slightly, Car. We get tips from Engadget (and others) in the same way that Engadget (and others) take tips from everyone else. News is news, wherever it comes from.
