    How to fool Akismet using ScrapeBox?

    Have you ever found your site on the Akismet's shit list due to Scrapebox Wordpress comment poster?
    Or even worse: your money site is in the black hole because of bloggers overreacting even to manual comments?

    Do not make this mistake again - use my tested method.

    My test went as follows:
    1.Got free *.tk domain (let's call it test1.tk)
    2.Setup three subdomains: sub1.test1.tk, sub2.test1.tk, sub3.test1.tk
    3.Scraped 5k wordpress blogs with ScrapeBox(unique domains).
    4.Blasted them all with spammy comments: static text, fake emails, keywords as names etc on subdomains: sub1 and sub2.
    5.Immediately tested a comment with website link to those subdomains on my own blog: Akismet did not complain about them. Comment approved.
    6.Tried again later (30 minutes or so?) and they were flagged as spam.
    7.Subdomain sub3.test1.tk and domain test1.tk clear. Akismet is good with them.

    Ok, guys, I can see in your eyes that you know starting to get it. Good.

    Anyway my detailed method to fool Akismet is as follows:
    1.Buy a cheap domain, whatever name you like. It will be a buffer site. Make some content on it.
    2.Create some subdomains (or not - see Modification 1 below).
    3.Blast the hell on those subdomains. I mean hell! It seems that it takes some time to flag you.
    4.Take a break. Let the dust settle down.
    5.Make 301 redirects from the subdomains to the domain.
    6.Repeat steps 2-4. Repeat. Repeat again.
    7.Add a link to your money site (or to the upper tier) from the domain.

    Modification 1 - to fool spam complaints: do not buy a domain in the beginning. Just make up a strange name, add subdomains and use nonexistent domain to blast. Buy it some time after the blast, when all the spam complaints are forgotten.
    I really like it :).

    Modification 2 - use another subdomain for your manual high PR commenting target and 301 it. If it gets hit by Akismet move to another one.

    Disclaimer:
    It could happen that Akismet would ban the whole domain with it's subdomain. However:
    - it have never happened to me.
    - I guess it requires manual operation by Akismet guys.
    In this case - buy another domain. Rinse and repeat.

    Any feedback, rep, flames, thanks, swears welcome!

    D.

    Guys, are there any other ways around Akismet? Or you just screw them and let them ban the url?
