Blocking Blog Spam with Language Model Disagreement

2005 Adversarial Information Retrieval on the Web  
We present an approach for detecting link spam common in blog comments by comparing the language models used in the blog post, the comment, and pages linked by the comments. In contrast to other link spam filtering approaches, our method requires no training, no hard-coded rule sets, and no knowledge of complete-web connectivity. Preliminary experiments with identification of typical blog spam show promising results.
