    So I just discovered a PR6 blog with auto-approve on!

    The thing is.. it has a 'recent comments' widget in the sidebar that always shows your link URL. So basically when google spiders the site, every page, regardless of PR will show the link+your name anchor text.

    Heres a screenshot of what I mean :

    Anyone ever come across anything like this? What are the consequences? I assume that the backlinks will dissapear over time.

    The PR6 link is the main page btw.

    yea i have seen it. Wordpress blog,**************** with a widget like topcommentators etc.

    My website is 2weeks old and i have done a blast of around 4k total during this period. Webmaster shows 6k backlinks and the big big majority of them are from this website. They dont exist though since they will disappear in like a month ..

    For obvious reasons I will not share the site, I am sorry. Otherwise it will be full of spam within 24 hours and the webmaster will probably de-activate comment url-linking and make everything no-follow ;x

    Yeah i stumbled upon this by accident as well, I was freaked out when I saw 900 backlinks when I only had 200 before :confused:

    Now i have like 100 PR 2-4 links :| no effects in ranking really though YET..

    Yeah this happened to me about 2 weeks ago and my backlinks jumped from around 200 to over 700. Granted most of them are from the same 3-4 domains, but nonetheless it's good checking my backlinks and seeing that many :D

    I've come across the phoenomenon a few times. I always see a spike in my traffic and adsense earnings for the site I'm promoting right afterwards but it drops off almost immediately.

    Just some speculation here, but I'm pretty sure G recognises that the links are temporary and gives the traffic spike as if the site were a news site with breaking news on the page. As soon as the links start to dissapear the extra traffic does too.
