Marketing Disguised as Sports Blogs

Have you ever done a search for a particular term or topic and and clicked on a link only to find that it is recycled blog from years past? This has happened to me on several occasions. I did a search for basketball shoes and better traction and have gotten links to old blog posts as “new postings” on more than one occasion. Keep in mind that some of the dates appear to be new and the authors and “comments” by these authors change, but you immediately recognize that you’ve read it before!

Have a look at these and you’ll see what I mean:

Come on, if you’ve taken the time to get yourself a domain or set up a blog account somewhere, why not come up with original content???

Your thoughts?
