Deimos signed up for Social Spark

4 Jun 2008 | The Blogsphere |  12 comments

Deimos signed up for SocialSpark, finally got approved after getting his blog bloody rejected by the SocialSpark “Customer Love” team three (3) times. He proceeds to take up this “opportunity” to write about his experience with SocialSpark and spread the word.

SocialSpark – Deimos’s experience at getting his blog approved
Deimos already signed up with SocialSpark on Wednesday, 30 April 2008 and was trying to get his blog approved when he got this message from the SocialSpark “Customer Love” team.

Unfortunately, we cannot approve your blog at this time. Blogs must be made up primarily of posts that are at least 3-5 sentences of original, quality content. Blogs that are not made up of standard text content, such as Photoblogs, Videologs, listings, advertisements, recipes, poems, copied articles, jokes, etc. cannot be approved in our system.

Upon reading this message, Deimos was furious and submitted his blog for approval again, the next two (2) rejection messages was even shorter.

Unfortunately, we cannot approve your blog at this time. Blogs must be made up primarily of posts that are at least 3-5 sentences of original, quality content

This type of treatment made Deimos quite pissed off and he practically gave up the idea of getting his blog approved. At that time, he is quite furious with the “Customer Love” team of SocialSpark for not approving his blog and the copy and paste rejection message.

After a month, Deimos attempt to get his blog approved and finally got his blog approved!
However, he is not exactly impressed though. He still dislikes the “Customer Love” team of SocialSpark for rejecting his blog approval submission three (3) times in a row without first checking out his blog throughly.

The conclusion is that the blog approval review team is very strict, or are just being plain jack rear-ends. You have been warned. Try again later if rejected.

    I think that should be the case, nofollow means no page rank spank. 💡
    Perhaps you could give SocialSpark’s nofollow sponsored posts a try. 🙂
    Try to sign up and get your blog approved first though. 😯
