LOS ANGELES—January 20 , 2005—Buzznet Inc., developers of the leading photoblog community, Buzznet.com, and the proprietary Buzznet Photocommunication platform, today announced it has enthusiastically agreed to support the "nofollow" attribute unveiled by major search engines this week.
The industry wide initiative, aimed at minimizing comment spam, was recently announced by Google, Yahoo! and MSN Search and is to be implemented by leading search engines, blog service providers and software vendors.
The tag will be included in Buzznet site comments to stop search engines from crawling these links, therefore reducing the incentive for comment spammers to continue their nuisance.
“Comment spammers are becoming a major nuisance to our customers. We had made our own attempts to prevent comment spam, but with Google/Blogger establishing an industry wide initiative will really address the problem at a deeper level.” said Anthony Batt, Buzznet CEO. “Kudos and thanks to our friends at Google/Blogger for having facilitated the implementation of this feature.”
