    So I've been creating Web 2.0 sites for backlinks, as per Kimi's SEO blueprint. I have a big list of the ones that work, and I just go down the list creating sites on them, then when I'm through all of them, I go through another proxy and do it all over again.

    Something odd happened. On Wordpress and Tumblr, my accounts were terminated as soon as I signed up (so it must have been through an automated process of some kind) Said something about a terms of service violation. But I hadn't even posted anything yet. I got the ban message as soon as I tried to sign in for the first time. How could they know it was, well, spam?

    A few points to get out of the way:

    - My browser is set up to delete cookies as soon as I close it. I even deleted them beforehand just to be on the safe side.

    - I was using a paid proxy, not a public one.

    - I used a freshly created email address with a legitimate-sounding name.

    - I filled out the Web 2.0 account details with legitimate-sounding information.

    I used the same password for every account, but would they really go by that?

    Any ideas about how they caught on (and how I can get around it) would be very much appreciated.

    same password is no problem for sure ...your problem sounds really strange.

    I'll look for a program like that but I run Linux. Is it still a possibility that Wordpress and Tumblr secretly placed some kind of file on my hard drive to detect spammers? I know that sometimes, programs and whatnot are incompatible with Linux...

    Same thing like this happened to me. I signed up for my.opera.com to create a web 2.0 property and when I clicked on publish button, my account was instantly banned.

    It's not an isolated issue
    I've had the something happen several times as well( and I always use cleaner ) i'm using Windows XP.

    Honestly I'm not sure why either. Tumblrs very strange and VERY inconsistent with respect to their TOS as I've ad any Bo's reinstated

    I think sometimes they use this tactic to see if a user will respond , or if its bot related traffic

    I've used different computers. On a Mac, PC proxy, no proxy Public ip to my personal ip

    I notice I've been able to recently create blogs with no proxy that appear to stick.

    Try a completely different location cafe, library , etc

    Whatever you do DON'T link older blogs to newer ones...

    Goodluck

    Are you using a bot to create accounts?

    Same here! Wordpress, Simplesite, and blog.com have recently changed something. My old blogs still work but if I try making a new site it is banned within 2 minutes.

    No, I'm creating the Web 2.0 accounts manually, and making an effort to appear realistic.

    I can't afford no fancy bots :p

    Does it matter how they caught on? Don't use them anymore. You want to keep you first tier nice and clean for a long time to come. Trying to fuck with sites that delete your shit won't get you there. Work with no BS Web 2.0 like Weebly, Blogspot, etc.

    Paid proxies could get blacklisted too - since your accounts get termed as soon as you sing up, I don't see any other reason. The last batch of paid proxies I got was banned by Google, so I emailed my provider and they swapped them for me.

    It could be from the proxy.

    While some may not believe that same password can have an impact, I recommend to use different ones, it only can help and make accounts look unique.
    Other than that, even with paid proxies, either semi-dedicated or dedicated ones, with basic technology they can go deep through them and find stuff that rises flags.

    If you have a dynamic ip address at your Internet connection, try making accounts by resetting the ip, and of course use ccleaner between sessions. Those ips are of trust, because are used for real end users and not like whole ip ranges for proxies.

    The password doesn't matter because their system doesn't know your password. They only keep the hash of where it's stored.

    I believe that the anti-spam teams are doing all in its powers to fight spammers, and can have access to things we don't surely know about, if it was not like this, we were all banking hard on all features with the use of google accounts, facebook, instagram, tumblr and so on, until their (million$-generating) sites were finished.

    It doesn't matter that "anti-spam teams are doing all in its powers". If the password is hashed then their system will never have visibility of it so the system will never be able to deduce what the password is. Milanezi is correct.

    If you've 100% cleared all cookies I would try it again with a new proxy.

    It is either the proxy or the domain in your email address.

    Given the huge amount of spam these web 2.0 sites recieve I can imagine they have a huge block list.

    It wouldn't be far fetched to say that the IP's of your proxy provider are burnt out in that respect.

    I would say clear history manually and then run something like CC Cleaner to clear the flash cookies. I do this every time now.
