This post is about Web Spamming especially in forums and how they can be combated
effectively by both forum Moderators and
Administrators.
The title of this post may not be the very best it can get but I'll make up with the Article body.
We'll be discussing about spamming and backlinks and try to distinguish between the two because
people can easily mistaken one for the other.
Let's start by defining some of the most basic terms
here
Spam: Spam is simply a way of describing illegal
activities performed by users of a site in terms
of submission of data which is usually displayed to
other users.
Hence, spamming is a word normally
used in forums.
People can equally spam blogs but this is utterly
useless because the comments posted in the blog are
usually filtered.
Quote
- in WordPress by special plugin and humans
- in bloggers and most other CMS softwares, by
Human beings
So, spamming generally is a forum thing.
Backlinks: These are links on a page pointing to
another page on another website. It's powerful and
useful for Seo purposes. Backlinks can help and harm
a site depending on how it's used but for the most
part, it's used to boost a site's ranking on search
engines' results page, SERP.
Spamming and backlinks are similar in that Spam is
unauthorized, unorganized backlinks
that are not
user friendly so most times, forum moderators spend
a lot of time fighting off spam than they do in other
things unless there's a very good spam fighting
technique.
So, in the forums Spam is a big problem that has to
be faced squarely because it can bring down a website. Too bad.
Let's go ahead and see good and bad backlink
strategies
Here,you'll see what makes a backlink to become a
Spam
1. TOO MUCH links
This is the most common of all. Users who spam
forums especially for the sake of Traffic tend to post
excessive links in the forums directing the forums
users to another site.
This is a form of negative advertising. A type of
advert that's not authorized by the forum
administrators.
2. Rice in Beans farm / Weed / Mixed Cropping
That's a name I just choose for a situation where by
someone posts a helpful link in an unrelated part of a
forum.
Quote
For example, someone posts a link to a football
betting site in the Smartphone tutorials section.
This is a weed spam because, had it been posted in
the proper section, it would have been helpful but it
becomes a distraction when posted in a place it's not
meant to be in.
You have to understand that posting the link in the
Above example in both forum Categories is not a
Weed Spam. It becomes a Link farm spamming, the
one in the first example.
3. Misleading Links
This is a very annoying type of spamming. Someone
may link to a webpage talking about gaming and put
an anchor text like [Top 15 Seo Tips 2020].
Users of the forum will surely click through if the
forum is about seo and end up in a site that can do a
ton of unpleasant things to their browsers and logged
in accounts.
By all means, this type of link spamming should be
fought in forums as it can easily discourage people
from visiting.
4. Fake Information
This is another category of Spamming that doesn't
involve links.
Someone can Post misleading information in the
forums and people may work with the information
trusting it's perceived authenticity.
This leads to loss of trust by users on the
forums.
Forum administrators should be alert for this
kind of threads. They hurt the forum silently. They're
not links so you may not detect and fight them
easily.
People who sell fake products in the forums are
fond of using this method.
Some Acceptable method of Backlinks in the Forums
Backlinks can still be gotten from forums and in fact
add some value to the Forum and users alike.

1. Similar topics links
When a user makes a topic, a good one and add a
link to a similar post on his/her website, it's a good
thing as readers will get more information concerning
the topic. They stand to Learn more from such links.
They usually come after the post
2. Source links
Very popular too. When a user posts a tutorial from
his website and links to it in the end. It's acceptable.
It doesn't distract users from the conversation
provided the link is not SHOUTING & it's Original too.
Forum Moderators should encourage such posts as it
sparks engagement in the forums by showing users
that people trust the forums to share good posts.
Care should be taken that Noone should do this in
excess else it becomes
Shady bulk link spamming
and such posts should really have quality content else
it become thin content + illegal link = Skillful
Spamming
3. Attached posts
Some articles may not be understandable on stand-alone. This simply means that, some posts are better
understood when parts of them are explained by
other posts too.
Take Wikipedia for example. The site links to other
pages explaining some terms in the post. This is
helpful but should not be over done either.
Rounding up
Forum managing is a very interesting thing because
it's tricky too.
New means of link spamming are evolved Daily &
you as a Forum Moderator or Admin needs to be
constantly updated on the
different forms used by
spammers to spam forums .
I couldn't forget to tell you that not all spams are by
humans. Some are bots and we will discuss those
ones in later threads
Don't forget, Not all Posts are as they Seem
Happy Web forum management!
