rel=“nofollow“

Es sieht so aus, als wenn sich die Suchmaschinen und Blog-Anbieter in den USA in Sachen Vermeidung von Comment-Spam einig seien, jedenfalls schlägt das Google Blog eine Lösung vor:

If you’re a blogger (or a blog reader), you’re painfully familiar with people who try to raise their own websites‘ search engine rankings by submitting linked blog comments like „Visit my discount pharmaceuticals site.“ This is called comment spam, we don’t like it either, and we’ve been testing a new tag that blocks it. From now on, when Google sees the attribute (rel=“nofollow“) on hyperlinks, those links won’t get any credit when we rank websites in our search results. This isn’t a negative vote for the site where the comment was posted; it’s just a way to make sure that spammers get no benefit from abusing public areas like blog comments, trackbacks, and referrer lists.

Das klingt durchaus sinnvoll, Blogg.de wird das dann sicherlich auch übernehmen.
