WordPress.org caught spamming

March 31, 2005

Apparently the guys at wordpress.org have been quietly hosting at least 168,,000 articles on their website.that are specifically targetting high paying adsense keywords The articles are written by a third-party site Hot Nacho, a startup that pays freelance writers to generate 300-800 word articles about specific topics.

Now all copies of wordpress that are installed have a link back by default to the wordpress home page, which explains their PR 8.

Wonder how much they make in a day from adsense??
