    That sounds interesting! Simply having ads on a blog doesn’t make it blogspam. More important, I think, is whether the content is interesting. If you’re posting a blog entry of yours someplace it’s well-received and spot on-topic, then it’s not spam. If you post the same thing somewhere and it’s overwhelmingly unpopular, even if it was on-topic, it’d count as spam. Not a concrete definition, but a useful one.

    For years, Snapzu’s had a 10%-sharing rule. Upshot being that what you submit at Snapzu ought to be things that don’t happen to be yours generally, except for maybe one out of ten snaps. It’s not a hard and fast rule in every case. Mostly depends how good the content is. With more blogs signing up for Snapzu to find eyeballs, that rule could change. Still, spam will need downvoting to keep it from clogging the feed, and you’ll be able to identify what’s spam by the downvotes, but I’m sure that quality, interesting content’s going to do fine.

    Very curious to see what you’ve got in mind. Nice to almost, kind-of, sorta, meet you! Welcome to Snapzu!

      Thanks for the welcome. To learn to write well one must write and receive feedback, this is one of the reasons I'm here at Snapzu. Also I want to stimulate the minds of my readers. But as you can see Spam is an interesting problem. I view all advertising as Spam, but advertising is the driving force of the Internet and the world. But to stay safe I'll go by the 10% rule. Thanks for the reply.

        Adolph Ochs would tell us “advertising in the final analysis should be news.” Ads that aren’t, those are spam.
