Hey all, I decided to jump into the blog world last week and created two blogs - one for my regular business here (http://freightbillauditing.blogspot.com/) and another for my internet sales.

My concern is that when I went to Google to do a search for the topic of my business blog under the Blog search, it brought my blog up as the first item (yay!), but then it had this:


Bill - Traffic Services of Cinti - Freight Bill Auditing25 Oct 2007 by Bill

Bill's Blog - http://dt6zvr236.mokeiu.com/

That then leads to a search page of some sort with results for the search "freight bill auditing" (the lead portion of my blog name).

Does this mean someone's trying to hijack my blog? Or should I not worry about it?

Also, if anyone wants to give any critique of either blog, that would be welcome. I'm just learning about how to make links with words, etc. (the other blog is http://tscsales.blogspot.com/)

Thanks.

Well, now I did the search to ask a friend who has a political blog what it was, and now it's gone. Anybody have any idea what that was? Did Blogspot make it disappear?

That sounds like a splog (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spam_blog). It uses the RSS feed of your blog to create its own blog to make itself and the spam links/ads that it features look better to search engines. Blogspot probably figured out that it was a splog from their own search or from someone else's report and deleted it.

Thanks for the input. I'll go onto Blogspot and see if I can read about reporting it myself for future reference.
