Blog search engines try to block fakes
(ZD Net, UK)

“Blog search engines are struggling to block the increasing number of blogs that contain spam, commonly known as splogs.

Mark Cuban, the owner of a blog search engine IceRocket, said on Monday that spam occurs in "monstrous proportions" in blogs.

Google's free Blogger service is a common source of splogs and spammers are automating the creation of blogs using this service, said Cuban in a
blog posting.“
