This article is part of How2Blogger’s Super Sexy Holiday ‘How To’ Contest which you can see at How2Blogger’s ‘How To’ site.

Well, if you can’t build reputation, then atleast you can spoil it. Here is a day by day account of how to spoil your blog’s reputation in 30 days!

  • Day 1: Turn your Posts in Feed to Partial. Better…use Feedburner post more feature and limit posts to 1 word and rest will display…Visit link to read full post
  • Day 2: Better even…Break your site’s that people can’t even subscribe.
  • Day 3: Start posting posts having only 1-5 words with no sense.
  • Day 4: Spam big related niche blogs with almost 10 nonsense comments per minute. (I told you…losing reputation needs hard work! :mrgreen: )
  • Day 5: If you didn’t like Day 3 Idea…start posting posts having 5000 words with half of it filled with Lorem Ipsum shit!
  • Day 6: Fake your Feedburner Count by copying image from Big Blogs(Go for Techcrunch! )
  • Day 7: Make a photoshop image of you standing with bloggers like Michael Arrington, John Chow, Darren, Shoemoney and Matt Cutts and tell that all of these are your childhood friends.
  • Day 8: Turn off your Blog’s Archives page. Better still: delete archive.php and archives.php of your wordpress theme and the default theme as well. (This ensures archives pages get completely broken)
  • Day 9: Remove the Contact Page from your blog
  • Day 10: Remove your photo and replace it with John Chow’s photo in your about me page.
  • Day 10: Remove the About me page from your blog and move that John Chow’s image to your blog’s homepage.
  • Day 11: Make a sad story showing you in lots of trouble and asking for donations(Paypal only please…other options can reveal your privacy). (Will be used to spoil the reputation on Day 30)
  • Day 12: Change the order of posts on your blog daily. (Don’t worry….a wordpress plugin for this is available)
  • Day 13: Turn all your posts into excerpts shown on main page..with excerpt length of 0 words.(Don’t worry…again a plugin is available for this)
  • Day 14: Start writing unrelated post headings which completely mismatch the post text(How about See Angelina Jolie hot pics on a post related to Investment and Stock Exchange? )
  • Day 15: Put three big 300X250 Adsense rectangles on top of your blog one on each line pushing your posts to second scroll down. Improves Visibility! (obviously ad visibility…what did you think? :mrgreen: )
  • Day 16: If Day 15 was not enough….try more banner ads of different publishers like Adbrite, Adtoll, ClickBank, CJ, Kontera, Paypal, Affiliate Banners. Just make sure…they appear above your posts.
  • Day 17: Expanding Day 8 Strategy: Remove Sitemaps if you have it. Remove even xml sitemaps submitted to Google. Remove robots.txt file from your blog. Also put nofollow on all pages of your blog.
  • Day 18: Remove Akismet from your Blog…and approve all comments…no matter what they are.
  • Day 19: Enable Dofollow for your comments if you had not done so till now. Also increase Top Commentors being shown from standard 10 to 100.
  • Day 20: Link to every website you can think of in your blogroll.(even yahoo, msn and will do) Make sure your blogroll has atleast 200 links.
  • Day 21: If yuou got tired of working on Day 20…relax….and only make sure all blogroll links are on homepage and not on a separate links page as some blogs do.
  • Day 22: Remove permalinks to your posts…so it would become almost impossible to open single posts….and comment on them. Oooo….expands Day 13 strategy well…now no reader can ever guess…what you have posted! 😈
  • Day 23: Remove Category links from your front page. That removes one more option to let readers even read your blog.
  • Day 24: Turn off Tagging.
  • Day 25: Hold a Blog Contest with prize money of 55000$ worth prizes and put the duration of contest only 5 days. Contest Entry requirements: Post a blog post about the contest with minimum 55000 words(original please)!
  • Day 26: Change the duration of contest to 3 days…ie. ending on Day 28!
  • Day 27: Change the entry requirements….Blog should have atleast PR 6 to enter.
  • Day 28: Break your site’s theme across all browsers(hire a css expert – oops…you forgot to do it on Day 1:…..give this priority.)
  • Day 29: Announce the winner….a blog (created by you with 1 post entry as: I win word repeated 27500 times – making it 55000 word post). Make sure this blog was created on Day 29 only…not before.
  • Day 30: Abuse all Big Bloggers….telling that they don’t know anything about blogging and you earned 10^10 dollars in last 30 days!

And after a long taxing month see your blog’s reputation going down the drain…to the extent that you will get a consistent traffic of 1 unique/day(obviously that’s you), alexa rank of something 9,000,000+ and technorati authority of 1!
