WP-o-Matic and “linkbuilding”

Following my experiment yesterday – downloading RSS feeds about US politics, then replacing and autolinking certain words, it seems that a few repetitive entries on an obscure blog can get picked up.

I put a stupid, made-up phrase to replace the name Sarah Palin – scaryspiceus – and linked every instance of it to Palin’s Wikipedia page. 

Unsurprisingly, yesterday there were no results for that phrase. Today, the wikipedia page comes up as the sole result – that is to say, the blog posts themselves don’t show up for it.

I’ll keep an eye on this and report any changes.
