Last night I noticed two of my blogs were suddenly re-directing my page to blogrolling.com. I don’t know what happened, but after time on the phone to my host, they found a redirect link on one of my pages. After spending the day investigating, I figured out that I had a bunch of links to blogrolling.com on my sidebar.
Most blogrolls, i.e. Blogging Tories, Red Ensign, Waterloo Wellington Bloggers, use blogroll to manage their list. This is fine. However, I have removed all blog-rolls from this page. It wasn’t until the last one was gone that the problem went away. Why it suddenly appeared, I have no clue. But if you run a blog-roll and wonder why I am not listing you anymore, it is because you use blogrolling.com, and they messed with my blog. They, and any blog-rolls using them, will not be back.
Blog-roll managers: If you feel you must, please remove me from your roll. I understand the concept of mutual benefit that comes from me displaying your blog-roll, and you including me in it. When my readers get redirected to blogroll.com, I no longer benefit. Apologies all round, but that’s the deal.
