Would someone explain to me what benefit spammers get from linking TO your content thousands of times?
First, what they TRY to do is they try to post some spam comments on your blog that link to their money making site.
Then they make thousands of spam links to the page on your site that they THINK has a link to their money making site.
In the case of the original poster, his spam catcher caught the comments they were originally posting on. So basically they are building thousands of links to a page that DOESN'T link to their moeny site, after all.
