    Post this latest Panda update from Google. Does it still make sense to find related high PR blogs posts that have not been spammed to death and post comments on them linking back to your website?

    I have heard conflicting answers about this one... What do you say?

    thanks

    Yes they work very well. An upcoming competitor to my first authority site is rising in ranks using only blog comments.
    What you don't want to use is AMR with a crap spin and similar kind of stuff, particularly large blog networks... (http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...e-confirms-never-use-amr-your-money-site.html) - Thus, I'll be doing exactly that on this upcoming competitor to see if i can stop him from reaching the top 10 using those blog comments :D

    Blog-Comments are love by Google because there are many new updated content in form of suggestion on the blogs, and the no of chances of spamming is much less in blog commenting.

    If someone has already commented using a keyword and been approved - Use a keyword.
    For everything else, use something like Name from Keyword(site) , or a Random name.

    It doesn't really matter. Whichever you use, if comments gets accepted and you get a link, you're game. That being said there are a few things to keep in mind:

    1. Many moderated sites won't accept comments with keyword for author name or keyword link in content body.
    2. Others (ComLuv) might accept in the format "FirstName LastName @ kw1 kw2" where "FirstName LastName" must look like a real person's name and number of keywords after '@' must be within a certain limit that varries from site to site. ComLuv will also give you another link towards last post in your RSS feed.
    3. Others will have comment author n0follow or not allow to enter an URL for comment author (non WP sites, e.g. Drupal) but will allow d0f0llow links in the content body. However most will flag it as spam if it is not related to the post. For example bbc.co.uk is a top trusted, high PR site that allows d0follow links in comment body but it is strictly moderated. You have to put a highly relevant link in there to not have the comment deleted next day.
    4. Some custom platforms (quite ultra high PR - o PR8 domains) have input filtering bugs so you can put a link and it will be d0f0llow. Some platforms are so strange when it comes to inut filtering injection that you would get for example a ******** link to your site but anchor will be their URL :) Others will not allow links at all but if you put an image URL in there it will be transformed into an image link towards that URL. Ths is in the realm of shit few people know and usually it takes ages to test a site for input filtering flaws. I for one only know of a few on a few high PR sites. I know some folks who know a few more. None of us would ever share them. Not eve with each other, even less publicly.
    5. WordPress itself has a ******** injection bug and you can get d0f0llow links from pretty much ANY auto-approve WP blog if you know how. The anchor text will be shit (is almost always the same and garbage text) but still, it is a d0f0llow link.
    6. Drupal for example uses a different system for anti-spam (not Akismet) and some plugins that track visitor (or spambot) visiting patterns and deny it if it triggers a flag. Also if you got a site flagged by Drupal's anti-spam platform, good luck getting whitelisted noob (I have a couple).
    7. Akismet - easier to trick, however if you got blacklisted, good luck again, noob :p
    All that being said, you will eventually have a mix of all types of anchor texts because of these factors. So your question is somewhat irrelevant because you assumed you have a lot of control over anchor text but in reality you are constricted by each site/platform in a certain way.
