Internet spam accounts often come from overseas business venues using automated software to push out useless information. The fake articles are filled with keywords and links attempting to convince search engines that the site on the other side of the link (their client) has valuable information.
"Spam is a minor annoyance. It's a longer discussion as to why people do it. We are going to take additional steps to make sure that only real people get to join our network," states KloodIn.com owner Robert Casper.
KloodIn's presence across the internet is rapidly growing. In the past month, KloodIn rocketed more than 5,000,000 (that's five million!) places in Alexa. Search engine and social media presence is also growing in multiple categories. SocialMention.com reveals that KloodIn is increasing the web presence for both the site itself and the parent RCents.net. Spammers try to gain access to growing audiences.
KloodIn content will remain free and easy to access. The ability to contribute content, however, is restricted to confirmed members. Visitors wishing to become contributors will need to contact KloodIn directly and execute a number of validation steps. Details are listed at http://kloodin.com/
There is a fine line between internet spam and online marketing. KloodIn appears to welcome marketing as long as the content provides actual benefit to visitors and the overall site experience. A get-rich-quick schemer or desperate SEO user will be rejected. A lawyer educating the audience, a massage therapist discussing common injuries, or web designer presenting fun ideas will likely have no problem getting approved.
KloodIn is implementing these increased quality control features in advance of major technical advancements in 2013. Given that Robert Casper, the owner of RCents and KloodIn recently deleted his Facebook™ and Instagram™ accounts, we can only imagine that he may take a stab at filling that void.
