In the past few months I have been monitoring the spam comments on some wordpress blogs I own and have seen a huge pattern which is the main reason why your comments are not sticking (or getting approved). About 98% of blog comments I see are generally all this kind: 1. "Great blog, subscribed to RSS and bookmarked!" 2. "Thanks for this great post! Bookmarked." 3. "Wonderful post!" Then some people are really dumb and make comments like this with words people never use: 4. "Magnificent post, your thoughts are very noteworthy and valuable to me, you should continue to write up such extraordinary articles in the future." Haha, those are probably the most obvious comments in the world you can tell are spam and will most likely NOT get approved unless the blog owner is 50+ and think you are serious (no offense to people 50+ of course). How to get approved blog comments: 1. STOP BEING POSITIVE. Be negative for some comments. Not negative like "fuck you, your blog sucks" more like disagreeing in some general way. 2. Be creative, saying "Bookmarked and subscribed to RSS" does NOT work anymore. 3. Don't use PERFECT punctuation and grammar! Try something like: "..hey, great article, i was thinking the same thing." That looks much more real than a perfect written comment. I hope this little comment guide helped, most probably know some of these tricks, some might not so I thought it would help.
