You think bots acting on their own without humans?
As a professional software developer for 18+ years, I of course know that people are behind the programs. So obviously a "human spammer" is one interacting directly with the Web site.
Really? Have you ever heard of gold farming? Why can't spammers do the same? Except maybe instead of paying people to get WoW items or level up characters that they can sell, they pay people to link to their sites.KeyCAPTCHA wrote: If you speak about humans not using bots then their productivity is negligible and cost is not economically viable for anybody to pay anything.
If those sites serve malware (like keystroke loggers, banking Trojans or remote control interfaces), the people funding the operation can make their money back by either setting your PC up in their bot net and renting that out or stealing your identity or cash directly from your bank. Or maybe they just get their sites to the top of Google for fake pharmaceuticals so suckers send them money for junk drugs. ("60 Minutes" recently did a piece on the fake pharma industry.)
Is it just possible that maybe you don't know it all?
That's ridiculous. The legitimate SEO industry (not "black hat" SEO like spamming and link farms) is about getting your Web site to the top of search engines. Why? Because when people search for something, they want their site to be looked at first. As the people are searching for something in the first place, they may well want or need what they're searching for.KeyCAPTCHA wrote:If you think a little bit, then any SEO biz is spamming because its purpose is to promote something nobody really wants, asks or needs.
