Spam product reviews - why?

Advert test

Just realised someone left a load of spam product reviews on our site of the last day or so. I'm just trying to work out why.

The review title, name, and content for most of them is just a string of mixed-case letters - a couple had actual names, and typical irrelevant comment spam ('great article', etc). They nearly all included URLs, but these were also just www.<randomcharacters>.com/<crap>. None of them go anywhere.

So what's the point?

Ah, that makes sense. Just thought they'd post the links in the first place.
Guest review turned off, so problem sorted.
