Splogging – Cyber pollution in the blogosphere
Spam blogs, sometimes referred to by the neologism splogs, are Web Log (or “blog”) sites which the author uses only for promoting affiliated websites. The purpose is to increase the PageRank of the affiliated sites, get ad impressions from visitors, and/or use the blog as a link outlet to get new sites indexed. Content is often nonsense or text stolen from other websites with an unusually high number of links to sites associated with the splog creator which are often disreputable or otherwise useless Web sites.Splogs have become a major problem on free blog hosts such as Google’s Blogspot service.

Del.icio.us has built a media player directly into the site. If you find a link to a MP3 file, a small icon appears to the left of the bookmark that can be clicked to play the file.
