It was just a matter of time--24 hours in this case.
When Google's Blog Search launched, I did the same thing I've done with every other blog search service: subscribed to a feed that produces matches for "zawodny", another for links to my blog, and one for "yahoo".
Within 24 hours I was seeing an average of 2-3 spam blogs showing up when I checked the results. Apparently the spammers have decided that Google's Blog Search is too attractive to ignore.
The other night one of my co-workers said, "you know... blog means 'better listings on Google', right?" Remarkably, I had never heard that before. But it didn't take more than a few seconds before it was my favorite phrase for the week. :-)
