As I blogged yesterday, you may have noticed your page link categories renamed to "My Links" and some nifty spam links embedded at the top. No word from OS yet on how or why this is happenning. After cleaning up my links sections, within hours two of my categories had been renamed once again and spam links re-inserted. As others have pointed out, worst part is these links look like the blogger has placed them there and endorses whatever advertised product is listed.
But if we can't prevent their placement we can prevent their usefulness by redirecting the embedded link to the website of our choice, say, your OS blog home page or www.tinkspornparadise.com if you so desire. First find the Edit Links hyperlink at the bottom.
You'll see a weird Google url.
Replace that with the address of your choice. In this case http://eatme.com
Then just click "Save Changes" and you're done! I don't know yet if renaming the link alias will stick or not. I renamed another Amazon link to "Pull My Finger". We'll see what sort of commotion that causes. All I can say is if I'm going to be forced to carry spam, it's going to be spam of my own choice!
