    You know how some blogs won't allow any links in the comment box or maybe they only want your name and email and have no place to put your website link? Here is a little trick to drop your backlink into the comment box - use a smiley at the end of your blogpost.

    example:
    Loved your blog. <a href=http://yoursitehere>:)</a>
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 3

    Good stuff, nice trick thinking outside of the box on this one.

    Other tricks are linking periods ( . ), external or even locally hosted emoticons, etc.

    Great trick though for those rookie Webmasters.

    You could possibly also use a little CSS to remove the underline...
    Code:
    <a href="http://www.example.com/" style="text-decoration: none;">Example</a>

    This works well in forums. You do the smiley face. Old trick.

    From 1k comments using this trick you will get 1-10 idiot approve comments ( on spammed lists )


    Pretty old by now and no one is falling for this anymore because you can see the link easly.
