Use Your Email Spam As Web Content

This has to be one of the most creative ways to use email spam I’ve heard of (actually this stands out to me as the *only* use for email spam that I’ve heard of :lol:):

Generating website content from your spam inbox

Essentially what you are doing is forwarding any email you get sent to the Blogger email address that is provided when you turn on posting via email.

It’s a really simple idea and seems to work quite well.

For the first time in your life you’ll be looking forward to getting spam sent to your email.

It seems that article was written for the users of Digital Point’s Link Coop Network. The more pages you have uploaded and getting hits, the more links you earn pointing to your own websites.

I read a post somewhere that said the link coop would toast itself through poor quality, spammy pages. I think this shows there’s some truth to that. I’m really not all that familiar with the network, but I’m wondering if everybody is just hosting the links on poor quality, spammy-type pages, yet having the links they earn in return point to their better quality, money earning websites. That’s interesting.

Thanks to Fantomaster Turning Spam to Page Count for the heads up.


I've been trying to find my way online for more years than I care to admit.

  1. Thinks for the mention 🙂

    It’s true that the quality of sites in the Co-op is a concern for all involved.
    I actually review ads that are placed in the Co-op before they are published to advertisers sites. But that’s the main issue for 99% of the members involved.

    As far I (And most users of the network) are concerned, I couldn’t care less where ads for my sites are being displayed, so long as I don’t have any outbound links on my sites pointing to spammy content.

    It’s certianly an interesting concept for increasing the number of links pointing to your sites though. I recommend having a play with it 😉

  2. When the co-op first came out (now why do I want to say coop? :lol:), that was my main concern. Having my pages point links to crap, spammy pages and not having control of what pages you are linking to. But now I think I get it, how you guys are working this. Pretty smart IMO. Not ready to try it yet though, but your comments sure give me something to think about.

  3. Well if you do decide to give it a go and get stuck, just ask on the forums or drop me a message and I’d be happy to help 🙂
