There's blogging for pay, blogging by a former news reporter who's set up her own local paper, and then there's creating fake blogs to deceptively push products.
Last week, I clicked on this ad that is appearing all over sites that serve up Ads by Google:

"Her Teeth Were Yellow"
Read the trick, discovered by a mom to turn yellow teeth white.
You can read the story yourself. It's "written" by a "mom" with a one-post blog, telling you about a cool way to exploit two free trials of teeth whitening products to get super results. Of course, one of the products doesn't exist, and the other "free trial" automatically signs you up to a "membership" that requires you to pay for monthly supplies.
But what really caught my eye was that the mom who discovered the amazing results lives right here, in Grand Junction, Colorado! Go ahead, click the ad. I'm sure you'll find there's a Cathy Anselmo in your town, too!
