This post doesn't really link to your post

I have no idea why my blog posts are showing up as linking to every single persons blog that I read as if I have linked to every single one of their posts.

Some of you know me through Following the Yellow Brick Road, others of you know me as the Kansas Prepper. Yep, not everyone knows me as the homesteader.

If any one has any clue how I can make the auto link when there is no link on the specific post, STOP, I would be eternally grateful. No, really.

Hi Phelan,

I think it's a result of including people's blogs in your sidelinks/blogroll etc etc. The stuff that scans for backlinks can't distinguish between the post and the window dressing of the blog. I'm afraid I don't know of any way to stop it from happening.

It seems that this is a problem for many bloggers, check this thread out:

There was also some voting for fixing it on the new ideas for blogs page but it was pretty evenly split so I doubt they'll do much about it.

I guess the majority of bloggers must just be interested in link backs, rather than a genuine network of information that would come from correctly linking posts that refer to one another.

Thank you for the link Geoff. Looks like it isn't my fault, it is googles. I still feel like I am spaming people, but on the plus side, it raises those blogs google ratings. :D

Look at it this way...a lot of people who may not have known about your blog are checking it out.

Ranger Squirrel, I have seen a few extra people. Zombie Buckets got the attention of the bikers. :D
