The Splog Thickens
I was amused, and somewhat perplexed, to read on BuzzMachine yesterday about a bizarre splog—spam blog to the rest of us—which copies text and then converts it to synonyms. Jeff explains:
In my ego searches, I just saw a splog that copied text of mine but ran it through ridiculous almost-synonym replacements. I’m assuming this is done to fool Google into thinking it is original content and perhaps to fool the text cops folks like the AP hire.
I still can’t quite work out what the function of this is. But I did come across another one on one of my own ego searches. It took me a bit of time to figure out where it came from. (It’s from Betsy Weber’s blog.)
Here’s the splog text, with the original in italics first. My questions:
- How the hell does group become “Washington entranceway”?
- and member become “sorority girl”?
- I kind of like the fact that loose wire blog has become “Unfixed Twist Blog” and the WSJ has become the “Commodity Exchange Annual”;
- But somehow which you can see here became “which her philander play against hither”.
- And the last two paragraphs are so full of weirdness I don’t know where to start.
