eMarketer.com is a SPAM site…

The First Place to Look for SPAM and the last place to look for emarketing advice

One of the annoying things about hosting your blog remotely – in my case, on Google’s Blogger/Blogspot – is that I can’t block spam sites. It’s the third time now, that eMarketer.com have posted up spam comments on my blog. Tired of removing them.

Anyway, don’t subscribe to eMarketer or have anything to do with them. Spammers are unethical in my book and any advice from eMarketer.com by relation, is probably unethical too, in my opinion.

If anyone knows of a way to blacklist links in comments (e.g. to eMarketer.com or similar sites), let me know? I know I can “killspam” in other products.

Having said that, eMarketer.com notwithstanding, I hardly ever get spam on here. By the way, please link to this post, so that we ambush Google search. eMarketer.com needs to learn about eMarketing, bigtime. šŸ˜›

And to eMarketer.com – sure you still want to spam my blog?

  1. eMarketer is most definitely not a SPAM site. My company uses eMarketer research and analysis for a variety of different reason ranging from strategic planning to business development. It is a very reputable firm – just do a google search on eMarketer and see what comes up.

  2. Two things. One, Mr/Ms Anonymous, has to do with profile, identity, trust and reputation. If someone has a profile, they can start to show their identity. As they fill out that identity online, mostly with content, they gain a recognition and trust value. That translates into reputation. Now why on earth would I pay attention to a “marketer” who can’t put his/her name to a post. If you don’t want to register, just sign it -Laurel-

    Secondly, eMarketer got in touch with me, said they would look into the problem and I never heard from them again. The post stays.
