Blogspot SPAM Gone?

I'm checking my inbound links and I came across a Blogspot blog and clicked on it. Then it hit me. Where did all the blogspot splog inbound links go? This blogspot inbound link isn't SPAM. It's not a splog. It's legit. I started looking around and all those Blogspot splogs are 404. What happened? Some investigation and I came across a lot of blogs like this one. This splog was using Adsense to monetize itself and Google has cut them off.

Three cheers for Google! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

So rather than blogger cleaning up the URL, google kicked them off the ads? Interesting. No point in splogging if you can't get paid, I guess....

You say the splogs primary goal is bumping up their Google PageRank? You say that the splog is no longer in Google's index? a.k.a. PageRank minus infinity. Sounds like Google deserves another three cheers. Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

Good thought re: front page. Let me fix that.
