    I was starting to test out my auto commenter and have come to the conclusion that I have no idea what is a good example of spam comment. I want to get a good stciking ratio as the blogs are really good quality.

    Anyone care to share their examples of spam comments that they use that stick well?

    Thanks in advance guys.

    Jim

    no....

    If my sig and/or post didn't give it away I made my own commenter, I have automated the commenter that thousands of BHW members are using and I would like to know of a good comment or set of comments to use for spamming.

    It is just the comment I need as I don't know what sort of comment blog owners accept more than others.

    Hey jimbobo. How goes it? Did you look into the updates I suggested?

    As for the question at hand, What you need to realize is that 'good' and 'spam' are 2 words that don't go together. The phrase 'good spam' is actually an oxymoron (atleast in my book).

    The best option that comes close to what you are looking for is using smilies and other emoticons. You can always code them with links.

    For instance, <a href="http:// yourdomain.com"> :)</a> This coupled with a simple "hey how you doing?" should do the job.

    cheers

    P.S. this is not my method/technique. It was posted by one of the senior members here (can't remember the nick) a while ago.

    Jim, I wish I had the answer to this as well. Generic comments don't work for me (unless I'm spamming my own blogs :) ), but if I mention something that's written in the post, or address one of its questions, I get an almost 100% stickiness. Even if it's just an 8 word sentence! Tedious and time consuming, yes -- but very effective.

    I've never really monitored comment stickyness, but I seem to get boost in rankings whenever I comment spam.

    The comment I normally use is something along the lines of

    "Interesting post. But are you sure?"

    I'm not sure whether the question element is making the comments more genuine and thus why my comments seem to stick and I get rankings or whether its just because I'm targeting lots of old blogs that aren't being moderated.

    Thanks guys,

    @Blackmamba - good point, I will start using something like this.

    @StillSmiling - you are right that a simple comment relating to the post is the easiest way to get a comment accepted and I have a very high success rate when doing manually but this auto stuff is a bit new to me :)

    @theconjurer - I will have to test that out, I have to admit if I see any html in my comments I automatically hit spam or delete so Im not sold on this yet, will give it a try though.

    @masterminder - The tool is by no means finished. The code for automating the process has caused lots of problems with the semi auto running of the tool. I couldn't give this app away at the minute lol. I will definitely consider you for a beta tester as I know you have been using my other tool for a while now and Im sure you would use it and give feedback.

    When I actually get time to code I can get lots done in a short time its just finding that time to do it. I have had to input a member login system to prevent chumps over at DP selling it for their own profit, the bastards.

    I have an app as well that will accept an xml profile from the free blog commenter and ping each page to 20+ sites so I am working on things, its just taking longer than the free blog commenter took me.

    Sorry for getting off topic there. Thanks for the replies guys, they are really appreciated.

    Jim

    Hmm so has nobody else got a generic spam message to contribute? I have built a tool to check whether a site is linking back to a page i have commented on and it does appear to be working fine but it is looking as though my auto comments have not been received well lol.

    If anyone has any input on what type of generic comment is accepted well I would be so appreciative. I get a lot of comments to my blogs along the lines of good post or nice design. Do these comments ever actually get accepted through moderation?

    Well, just from what i've seen the generic ones that do accepted are usually just the ones that auto get accepted when you put in the captcha etc. but again that's all manual. What has worked for me recently is before I comment spam I write a few comments just related to that niche. for example if it's about breast feeding i'll make a few comments "Yeah using a pump is great" Or "yeah I make sure I pump before I go out" etc. I usually make about 20 of those random comments and they just rotate for the diff blogs Seems to work great for me and they almost always get accepted.

    It depends on what niche you're in.. If you're in weight loss, I would write a long comment suggesting some exercises, diets etc and how they worked for me. Make sure you write more than a couple of sentences, but remember to keep it relevant to your niche and target blogs.

    I recommend you read all this. Pay attention to sweetfunny, as he has some great tips there.

    Thanks for that, Im starting to think that the more generic comments are less effective and shouldn't really be used. Annoying thing is is that I generally write a few niche specific (but also general) comments and so far my stick rate hasn't been very good.

    I don't know where the problem is, whether its with the poorly tested commenter, my link checker (I doubt this one) or with the comments being really poor, this is what im putting my money on.

    I will check out the posts by sweetfunny, he / she has always been pretty open with me so I may even PM him/her to see what he/she advises.

    Cheers guys.

    I've had a good stick rate with my comments, but only because I always target auto approve blogs. The fact that they're not niche specific is not ideal, but they definately still add value, I've used blog commenting on a few thousand blogs with good results (e.g: one site went from number 14 to 6 in G)

    You can get a good list of auto approve blogs if you download syndk8's WP-autocommenter, it's free to download - it comes with a list of around 600,000 places to post, one of the text files contains a list of just auto approve blogs.

    Another thing.. Read this - it works great! I'm seeing a lot more backlinks after I stopped adding my site in the "website" field, and started hiding them in smileys.

    hmmm, not sure if i read this in a post here or not, but you could hit up google news and do a keyword search for the topic of your blog then post a comment or re-written version of the news bit (assuming of course, you're doing keyword specific spamming)

    The ones on UWSC are pretty good, he is a member here(as you probably know) so I'm not going to share it. I think some of his comments well look at the post date and put that in there.

    Example: Great find, never thought that would happen on a Wednesday!

    It looks a lot less spammy because you are mentioning the date, which most bots cant do that.
