Hi EugeneO,

Thanks for taking the time to provide a little feedback.

You are spot on, I will add some additional tweets later.

Cheers,

Dan

Hi,

I had an idea last night to create a test twitter feed and post some 140 character and some average length tweets. (average tweet on twitter is 82 chars)

The tweets contain lorem ipsum and contain no spam or advertising etc etc.

This could then be used when you want to test what a twitter feed looks like in your designs or demo pages.

The twitter account is @tweepsum http://twitter.com/tweepsum

Enjoy

Dan

Hi,

What template? and what language?

You will find various scripts via “Mr Google”... ASP , PHP etc etc depending on your reqs… You will even find sites that will construct them for you.

Post some detail and I’ll point you in the right direction.

Cheers,

Dan

Hi Dan

What is going on is known as referrer spamming.

People use a type of software that will spam fake referrals, because a lot of webhost’s do not protect the log files of some stat programs, which makes the logs a html file and it gets picked up by the search engines. So when they put in fake referrals it gets them a link back to the site they are spamming.

So people run these type of programs so that 1 in every 50 sites they spam they will get a link that will stick.

I hope that helps

That looks likes it, many thanks for your advice? Should I look at getting the webhost to tighten down security? Or is this a rare occurance?
