Policy Change on Posting SEO, Self Serving and/or Spam Content
In recent months we have seen a significant increase in self-serving content and spam. For those of you who have posted your own content on Snapzu and are wondering what has been happening lately, I will explain.
We have tweaked our anti-spam functionality to be more sensitive towards the blatant posting of SEO content. It is considered self serving to game our community for the purpose of helping your website in search rankings. We have added/tweaked additional measures like only assigning do-follow links to highly up voted content, as well as un-publishing or even deleting snaps/text posts, domain blocking and or IP banning accounts that abuse our content creation and sharing policies. If your account is engaged in posting content meant to game our system for the purpose of SEO, blatant spamming, or other content marketing activity that may jeopardize the well being of our community, please know that we will do everything in our power to remove such content and prevent it from happening again.
Please note that members who follow the 10% self-serving sharing rule may continue to engage with our community just as before, but if you feel you may be breaking the rules or have received a system message warning you that you have, you can PM me and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
The last thing we want is to be overrun by spam. There are too many great social websites that have failed because little to nothing was done about such content. If you have something to say in regards to this, be sure to post in the comments. Our stance on this is clear, we are however looking for any feedback to better our approach.
