    When ever I make a new post on my Wordpress Blog, I always get a comment from some guy who has a back link to my site on his own Wordpress blog with thousands of back links to other blogs as well.

    I'm assuming this person is try to get me recognized as a link farmer, but I always mark the comments as spam. Has anyone else had this problem?

    Not sure, but I use a plugin that uses my tags and goes out looking for the same tags on other blogs. It does trackback link building all by it's self.

    For it to work I'm pretty sure you need to have both blogs allowing trackbacks, certainly at least one. I think it's just good automated SEO. I could be wrong, often am, and stand to be corrected.

    Ah, I just didn't want to be associated with someone that is a link farmer only to get hammered by Google.

    The blog doesn't have anything on it.. no content no nothing.. just posts of other people's blogs (like a single post) and a link back to their blog from this blog.

    A lot of times they are comment spammers. Or trackback spammers. 99% of the time if you think it's spam, it probably is.

    Maybe that's just foreplay to them. Not everyone goes straight for the hard stuff.

    Dude nobody's screwing with you, that's just how pingbacks and trackbacks work bro. Don't approve them and you're fine. You can even use WP to blog that sh*t automatically.
