Wiki SandBox Spamming


Namespace: Wiki

Wiki maintainers can expect an increase in spam after a webmaster newsletter highlighted the effectiveness of Wiki spam in raising a site's Google ranking. WebProNews described how a webmaster improved his rank in a search engine optimization (SEO) contest using links in Wiki "sandboxes" - pages where users are urged to test drive the format and learn how to use it.

BAD news In my opinion. Nothing is safe from Spam :-( Would be a shame to lose any Wiki's due to some site wanting more hits
It's certainly an increasing problem, and I'm dealing with this aggressively. Thanks to all the Volunteer House Keepers who help keep this in check...-- Steven Black
