“How To Make Money Fast” is just one of thousands of spam comments my filter prevented from being posted on this blog. If the spammer in question actually knew a good way of making money fast, it’s unlikely they’d be telling other people about it. My filter is also repeatedly blocking spam comments from someone offering to write cheap blog posts for me and my readers. This seems to rather miss the fact that I prefer to put my own spin on shit – not to mention that with all the spam that comes my way, I’ve more than enough material from which I can write blogs fast, so I don’t need to pay someone else to do it for me. I could probably spend hours taking the piss out of the spammer offering to add Facebook fans to profiles on that platform… Fake fans aren’t about to bring anyone fame or money… and ultimately it’s more satisfying to engage with people than have them look up to you for no good reason. The star/fan relationship ain’t exactly a groove sensation – and using social media to replicate it online seems to completely miss the point of web 2.o, which is that it should give people the opportunity to interact on a more equal footing.
During my spam deletion process, I tend to pay slightly more attention to those comments offering search engine optimisation services (SEO) and free backlinks, than virtual pitches for lawyers. plumbers, escorts, watches, baby clothes, handbags, diets and designer shoes etc. However I wouldn’t click on SEO cowboy links or allow their outrageous claims to appear on my blog – because they’re likely to lead to some virus infested scam site. What all this bot-driven ‘activity’ ultimately reveals is the desperation among those who think social media is the new Klondike and that they’re about to strike gold. As I’ve said before, focusing on content will ultimately result in getting people to engage with a site – building links may raise you very slightly up some search engine rankings, but it doesn’t necessarily lead to anyone looking at what’s on your pages. Content is still king and ninety-nine percent of the time monetisation is a pipe dream – which is one of a number of reasons why there are no ads here!
If you still want to make money fast you’d probably do better ram-raiding a jewellery store.

I know what SH stands for – it’s a subliminal come on telling us to ‘shoot heroin’.

Money is only a representation of wealth and only when we abolish it will there be an end to late-capitalism’s postmodern nightmare!

Money, wealth, fame, glamour, sex etc. seem to be all that is on offer here. Isn’t it about time we invented some post-capitalist desires?

Here are some genuine old country cures that I got from my grandmother.
If you have a headache: lie down and place a doller bill on your stomach. Pleasure yourself and as you do so repeat out loud: “I am feeling well”. If you are a man you must come over the dollar bill.
For a cold ditto but use a five dollar bill.
For chickenpox ditto but use a ten.
For depression ditto but use a twenty.
To cure cancer do the same but use a fifty dollar bill.
Send me a dollar and I will give you more cures.

It’s true that content is king and the more successful sites, in my opinion, bear this out. While certain tweaks can be added to the structure of a site to improve results in a search, it is the content that keeps people coming back. These sites find their audience and grow from that strong base.
