Spamming for Backlinks

    With all the spam we seem to get on the forums here at hubpages, I assume that these posting are both for attracting traffic as well as maybe leaving a link for back-linking.
    We talk about getting backlinks here on hubpages to help our hubs. We do this on other sites, but there is a difference in posting/writing articles/blogging for backlinks and just "spamming."

    A question I have is...do these people that come in and "spam" the forums here get credit for a backlink when they do this? Or is it just annoying here to the forum community?
    If they do not get a backlink....maybe it would slow down the "spamming." Just a thought.

    Links in the forum are no-follow.

      That is a good thing! Maybe if people who sign-up just to spam knew this upfront they might not waste our time and space here. Or they may and just do it anyway.
