    I recently happened across a spam goldmine. My eyes widened with anticipation as I watched SEOquake report no less than 21 PR7 pages, 30 PR6, god knows how many PR5 etc.

    Pages are auto-approve. The topic is coding and development.

    All pages are 100% clean - later, though, I found the reason for this.

    Every time one of the pages is modified, an email goes out to everyone who is subscribed to the page, which is always at least the webmaster.

    So I am in a situation where I can get any number of massive PR links, but for a period of only 24 hours each (that's how long the last one survived anyway).

    So my issue is this:

    Is it worth leaving links, knowing they'll be gone in 24 hours?

    The link I left the first time got indexed very fast (3 or 4 hours) - as you would expect for PR7!

    The only way I'd use it is if I knew the page was cache'd quickly and if that was the case, I'd use it as my own little index'ing slave to index a bunch of other spammy sites or splogs.

    It would hold next to no value in terms of SEO to me. But that's just my opinion.

    Set us a buffer blog, talking about you as a super-duper former programmer for facebook - with a 50-something man picture, and point the link to it. Then point links from there to your money sites (after it ages a bit).

    You can try using auto spamming software like xrumer to respam these every day. SE will consider that these are permanent links. Of course if you keep doing it the webmasters will eventually ban your urls. If spamming them doesn't take too much time then leave the links.

    "smile" image links & "full stop" dot links can slip under the radar & stick...depends on the admin comment review system

    Pretty good idea ;) No anchor text though but im sure it still helps.

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone.

    The thing is, the site in question is a wiki. You can't do anything fancy with the links, you can have anchor text but that's it. The platform is called "trac", it's a family of websites that allow users to sign up and update support tickets for obscure and, to me, frankly baffling coding and development bugs. This is why it seems hopeless to try and make a relevant "comment". My best hope is to make a full stop, and hope the anally retentive moderator doesn't see it after he receives his "support ticket updated" email.

    Looks like the best use for it is indexing crappy splogs - it'll simulate a blog being mentioned on the first page of some big site, then slipping off the first page I suppose.

    Really excellent stuff. It's a shame I am not actually fully competent in PHP, bu I do know someone who is. I'll be sure to give this a try.

    It will still be extremely difficult, though. It's a really, really nerdy website. People just post up bits of code and the administrator is aware of everything. Oh well, I'll give it a shot.

    If the admin pisses me off too much, I might just publish the url on the black hat forums here - let's see if he likes clearing up spam after that!
