I get them ALL the time. At least 1-2 likes from bots per post.

it depends on what tags I use, iPad is a popular one obviously.

Also, soemtimes I'll see a like of an ancient post with no rhyme to why. I'll agree though that a good percentage of likes / reblogs are spam / bots. They also often have ads on the blog so whoever is running it will get credit when you visit the blog to see who just liked / followed / reblogged you.

#triathlon mostly as its just my blog for talking about triathlon related things.
