Domain Blacklisting Now in Effect for Spammers
In addition to our warning system for those who submit spam to IMAutomator, we have now introduced a blacklisting system. Some spam is somewhat borderline – it may be an innapropriate article on a site that covers many subjects but other spam is due to the entire site itself being unsuitable – such as a porn site. In these cases, in addition to the spam warning being placed on the account, the domain of the Job URL will be added to a blacklist to prevent anything from that domain from being submitted to IMAutomator in future.
Suggest a Site Page Removed
It seems that putting huge red text in the middle of the suggest a site page still didn’t mean people would read that text! I’m still getting people submit random links to the page and of the tiny handful of genuine bookmarking sites that were submitted, all were PR0 and people just selected PR1! Thus, this is only wasting my time with useless submissions and I have removed the page.
Suggest a Site – Clarification
A few people have used the new Suggest a Site page after it was added yesterday but there seems to be some confusion as to what it was for. This is for you to suggest sites to be included as part of the social bookmarking system – such as a Social Bookmarking site or an Article Directory. We’ve had some people try to use this page to post their bookmarks! I’ll modify the text on the page to hopefully clear up any confusion!
Suggest a site to IMAutomator
We quite often get emails from either members or site owners who would like their sites to be incorporated into IMAutomator. We’ve now made it a little easier to suggest sites to us by creating a Suggest a Site form. Please note that we will only accept sites that have some PageRank so if you have a PR0 site please wait until it has gained some PR before submitting.
