To anyone who thinks Blog Spam isn't a problem take a look at this.

Google Blog Search: ecademy -site:*

I take an RSS feed from this page to spot anyone who mentions Ecademy in a blog with anything from the domain removed. It's now completely unuseable because somebody has built a robot which is signing up Blogger accounts and using the same text that just happens to include "Ecademy". They're building at least 10 new blog sites per day.

Given that Google own both Google BlogSearch and Blogger this is undeniably their problem. It may also be and the other ping service's problem.

Google Blog search is amazingly fast at indexing new blog pages. It's also now completely useless.
