I can say I use to do manual seo when I first learned about SEO because I was told by "SEO Gurus" that blackhatting doesn't get you anywhere. I can't even believe I use to sit there all day and manually post. I did however get a few good rankings for fairly competitive terms. Well, ever since I have been involved in BHW and started my own blackhatting businesses, I have learned that I was quite wrong. So, I have stopped manual seo such as blog comments and related forums for now and wanted to see what the big boys thought about this. Do you guys ever do any manual tasks? If so, what do you do manually? Anything manual seems pointless when you can do it thousands of times more efficient automated. Enlighten me please I say this right now because I have been filter on spam just trying to leave comments on high pr blogs. Either way its spam right?
