    ok guys
    i posted some manual comments on several blogs few days back and somehow I am on askimets spam list now because whenever i submit a comment i get this message
    your submission cannot be accepted bla bla

    what to do now? this is frustrating as i just stumbled across a nice list of high PR blogpages and was eager to get my link on them. Should I just setup another domain to redirect to my money site and use it?? and what about the keyword? will google consider the keyword as carrying weight for my main site even though the url on the page is redirecting to another domain??

    use a proxy to post the comments to the various blogs that o.p. wants to comment on and get backlinks from?

    ive not had any sites banned by akismet and i dont know anybody who has so i cant confirm this, but my understanding was that akismet bans your site as being a spammer, not you for making the comments. if my understanding is correct, using a proxy to post comments on other peoples blogs wont help him as akismet has banned his url, not the i.p that hes posting from so i i dont see how your suggestion is going to help, but im keen to learn more if youre willing to provide a fuller answer.

    Last year I emailed them saying my competitor was spamming blogs with my website, and they said some rubbish about not being able to remove me off the list. I said I would take legal action as its affecting my business significantly and they just removed me off the list as easy as that!

    Might not work now as I posted this on BHW a while ago and a lot of people probably started emailing them the same thing again.

    Your domain is banned so you are screwed. A good lesson for you to not use domain in scrapebox, only web2.0 properties.

    You said you're doing it manually. They would have banned your IP first, so try a proxy.

    If it is your site simply wait 24 hours and you should be clear.

    Yep, I agree. Your domain is banned. I had that happen on my money site as well. The only way to go around this is to post on domains which do not use askimet or build links to your money site. Sucks, but manual link building sucks ;)

    Banned for manual commenting, it sounds like you used the same generic comment over and over, maybe even on the same site, this annoys legit site owners. If you're doing it manual, you can avoid this by commenting properly.

    Generally, Akismet bans Domains OR IPs. It also abns either temporarily or permanently.

    If you're still banned in, lets say 48h, then you need to avoid Akismet.

    Is there somewhere where you can check if your domain is on the ban list for Akismet?

    I've told if you submit a comment to some of your own sites that has akismet, you just go to the spam folder and release it. Its kind of saying, "this post is not spam, accept it". Now notification goes to Akismet from this small action and it will take you out from ban. I haven't tested it myself cause I don't have too many banned sites, but might be worth of testing?

    If you have a wordpress site you could post a comment there and just see if akismet blocks it.

    Well colour me pink and tickle me elmo or however that saying goes.

    This actually works. And all it took was one post.

    I was banned then I posted on my blog, said it was a good comment and now I can post on my blog again and not get caught by Akismet. Have a thanks and some rep.

    According to Akismet :D
    I don't think searching related sites and leaving good comments related to stuff on them is spamming. Do you think?
    I don't use any software for commenting and as i specified i search related sites and comment on them..
    May be my error was that i commented twice on some posts... or may be what i did i don't remember but i did not bombarded the site with general or non-sense comments for sure...
