I'm having pretty much no success building backlinks through commenting lately. I think it may have something to do with either all of my domains having been marked as spam, maybe my server has been marked as spam, or maybe it's my ip that I'm commenting from having been marked as spam. Is there any way that one is able to check with akismet to see if something is preventing my comments from being approved? The reason I ask is there are comments that were posted today on some blogs I was checking that had links directly within the comment. Sure, a blogger may approve these, but this one was for male enhancement. I'm not so sure a technology blog would approve a comment with a link like that in it. Of course, my comment was thought to be spam a message declared and so it wouldn't show up. Anybody here got akismet and would allow me to comment to see where my comments go?
