    That's what I did and some site had this recent comment widget which blew my site with over 500 links overnight. I had like 500 before so it doubled in no time, and the rankings went down.

    I'm not saying backlinks from blog comments are bad, because I have high PR links from some blogs to another site I own, which are keeping it at the top, but what I'm meaning is to watch out and not go crazy about it.

    I'm not sure what this is, I'll see over the next 2 weeks. A week ago the site went down, I thought it was panda or something but today when checking the links via WMT I saw it risen from 400 links to 1300, actually. 900 from one single site. What I did then is blog comment with more variety of anchor text, I thought it was over-optimized. This is a mess, let's see how this goes.

    Alright, an update on this: most of the tons of links from the sites with "recent comments" widget have disappeared and now the rankings are back to first page from 3rd-4th pages.

    There are still a lot of such links and they are disappearing gradually. What we can learn from this is to watch out for such blogs, they can literally destroy your rankings. Probably I was lucky that I did not get de-indexed. I'm now going to look for a way to filter such blogs.

    When I blog comment using some of the list available on BHW I don't post to all pages. I select one page from each domain and post to it once.

    If you find you've been hit by the recent comments widget then use scrapebox to post to those sites with generic comments to bounce your link out of the widget.

    This is interesting to me. One of my sites has almost 7000 backlinks pointing to my site so I checked it out and one of my posts is in their recent comments widgets. It's currently three from the bottom so hopefully it will drop soon enough.

    But I thought that google only counted one link from each site and disregarded any additional links for this reason? I've not seen any drop in rankings, but the site is only a few months old, tackling a fairly popular keyword, so I haven't seen much upward motion yet either.

    No, Google considers everything. Widgets were talked about here: http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.se/2012/07/new-notifications-about-inbound-links.html

    It can be find in WordPress if you go to Appearance>Widgets. It shows the latest comments with a link to your website if you added any.
