    I've seen people who do manual blog commenting leaving comments with their backlink as a".".

    So for example:

    "Such a great read, really enjoyed your article! I had a hard time printing out the page though, any ideas on how to properly print it(Maybe a pdf copy?)? Thanks, looking forward to getting your help."

    Anyone have experience doing this? I haven't had enough time to start a test for this yet, so figured i'd reach out :)!

    I was just thinking about that. I'm not sure if it would count as spam or not for the backlink.

    Meh, it would work and i guess you could class it as having diverse anchor text. It may be used to gain some very strong link juice from a site if it is manual it is possible that they have gone to a high PR PA DA whatever site and they know that there comment will need to be accepted to hiding it in the stop makes it look legit to the site owner. Only problem is it looks spammy as hell having . as anchor text i mean who naturally does that.. Ever lol. Then again SEO is a weird place and im sure someone else may have a different theory.

    Its an old trick that im sure google is aware of now. Having just a "." or even a forum smiley as anchor text is never going to look like a natural link.

    That said I did once use the smiley technique on a certain popular forum to get a page indexed very fast ;)

    Eh this will only work if there happens to be an oversight by the webmaster he gets lazy and approves the comment without noticing. There are better ways to sneak a URL in a comment...

    Well if somebody was searching for "." or smileys maybe they will rank on 1st page! Y'never know!

    This works, but you have to find the ones where the text is in the same color or blue!

    I use it often when i manual comment on High PR's that are heavely moderated and with succes, but i mix it up with others then only the . !! You have to be creative, it all depends on the way the site shows your link, sometimes it will be . ans sometimes a . (sometimes in blue or in the same color, jackpot!!)

    When it shows with the line under it, most webmasters will see that there is something very fishy going on and will delete it!
    I have been playing around with various caracters and found that the letter g works very well in a long comments BUT ONLY when the letter is in the same color! (because like this is screams spaaaaammmm)

    >>> BEGINNER ALERT!! BEGINNER ALERT!! Don't do this on sites when the color changes like this:

    Hey, i really digg your site! Could you please tell me what theme you are using?
    Love Madonna

    ----- Please don't f*ck it up, if you can't preview your comment DON'T DO IT!! ---------


    I have an almost full proof method when letter colors are shown but that i will only share with a lucky senior member of my choice whenever i feel like it, sorry guys don't want to out this best things in life sometimes are not for free
