Re: Legit posts with spam links

Recently we found spammers using tags to insert certain keywords or sentences. I’m not sure if I understand the use case. They didn’t appear to be links just some type of advertisement. Has anybody else seen that?

 

It just kind of feels like it’s useless even for Spammers

Re: Legit posts with spam links

@Wendy_S not knowing what the words were, my guess is trying to get some Google juice out of it?   I haven't seem them use tags for that....yet.   I've seen them do it in their profile fields.

Re: Legit posts with spam links

@Wendy_S- we receive that type of spam too. I assume it's some type of SEO spam? Oddly, these users were able to rank up when doing this, and getting to bypass the spam system due to the roles they earned with the rank. We reported this bug to support back in Nov. 2017.
