    I´m tired to read all that spammy comments on my blogs, such as “Great Article”, “Thanks for that”, etc. etc. It´s time to advance your commenting technique. Spamming via generic comments is out ;-)

    In the following I will show you how to make comments with Scrapebox that will get more likely approved as they are relevant to the topic of the blog post and don´t look like the regular spam comment (generic comment!). Furthermore, this method helps you to only comment on blogs that are not abandoned and (if at all!) still moderated. This will drastically increase your approval rate.

    Here you see what your comment needs in order to get accepted:


    • NO-SPAM
    • NON GENERIC COMMENTS:Great blog!”, “I like your article!”, etc. will not get approved. At least I don´t approve these and so do many others. If these comments get displayed on the blog the quality of these blogs (and the PR) is often very low.
    • RELEVANCY: Your comment must be relevant to the blog post
    • CONTROVERSIAL: I noticed that some (!) blog owners approve controversial comments, only to start debates on their blogs that cause more and more comments. Controversy is not necessary, but you can play a bit around with that!
    (You can use the following method on recent events as well as events that lie in the past. I would recommend using the method for events that lie in the past since you will comment on pages that have already gained PR. The problem in recent events is that the page you are commenting on has no PR yet, but you can create traffic with this method. Furthermore, your chances with a controversial comment to get approved are higher because blog owners really want to start conversations on their new blog entries.)


    • KEEP IN MIND: The topic needs to be widespread, which means that you´ll need to find a topic that is massively discussed in order to find a lot of blogs that are posting about the topic!

    #1: Find a widespread topic / event:


    • Method #1: In order to find general scandals/topics try news.google.com and/or news.google.com/archivesearch to find recent topics or topics/scandals that happened some months ago. If you want to find widespread scandals/topics from the past you need to do an advanced search in the Google news archive search and select a time-period. I recommend searching for events that lie 3-5 months in the past, that also depends on the last PR update, etc.
    • Method #2: Use other news sites like yahoo, etc. etc.
    • Method #3: If you want to target niche-specific blogs then you will have to find sites that show niche-specific blogs. Let us assume I want to make comments for my blog about celebrities: I would search now for a site where I can find news that are related to my topic (here: celebrity gossip and scandals). I would have chosen for example eonline.com. If you can´t remember a scandal that lies some months in the past you would type into google something like: inurl:"eonline.com" + scandal. So, we would have found the “scandal” about Lindsay Lohan and that she was arrested. That’s a good topic and it was very widespread (if we assume that she was arrested 5 months ago, so that we could comment on a blog entry in the past!).

    #2: Find blogs in scrapebox:

    Type in the keywords you want to use to search for. I would use something like “inurl:Lindsay jail arrest” or “intitle:Lindsay jail arrest”.
    To get more results you could also search just for “Lindsay jail arrest”.
    Remove duplicate URL´s / domains

    #3: Write a relevant comment:

    You can apply now all your Scrapebox secrets, spin your comments, etc.

    --> That comment would be a bit controversial, since that lil´ chick didn´t behave nice at all!

    #4: Another twist:

    Okay, I wanted to leave this out, but here you go:

    If you comment on a topic that happened in the past you can also add some recent news to that comment, to make the comment look even more legit and give a reason why you posted on an old topic.

    ADDITIONAL:

    By using the search operator inurl: you will most likely find wordpress blogs that have been optimized so that their title will show in the url.

    By using the search operator intitle you will find blog entries where your topic is in the title = high relevancy.

    Hello Blackheader,

    A wonderful post. I have been having that precise trouble - submitting many only to have low approval rates. I submitted 10k yesterday but only had 10 links so far indexed! These were long, highly spun generic comments.

    Just a few (noob) questions. I had tried such a method of searching for news for relevancy, and posting relevant spun comments, but I found that the urls I was posting to were not relevant to the original keyword at all, which meant no comment approval and me looking completely stupid, not to mention caught red handed. Are you saying that inurl: and intitle: prevents this from happening?

    Also, a noob question you don't have to answer, where do I put inurl: / intitle, in the top main search box or the keyword box below it?


    I will try this shizz out now and get back to ya.

    Fantastic method there!

    Plus it still really doesn't matter about the relevancy of the sites for the backlinks but getting your reverse phone backlink in these would still prove more difficult.

    So more designed for the niches that there is big news about!

    I definitely think manual commenting on high pr blos is the future for scrapebox, automatic comment submit is a waste of bandwidth especially if none are approved.

    Hey jb2008...

    the search operator (such as intitle, inurl) helps you to find blogs that have the keywords (of the topic / scandal !!! not the keywords of your website!!!) in their title, for example: "lindsay lohan arrested: 90 days in jail" or in their URL: "/blog/lindsay-lohan-arrested-90-days-in-jail".

    So the search operators enable you to search only within the titles / URL´s of a blog for the keyword. If you are not using the operator and just do a search with your keywords (of the scandal!) it could happen that you will find blogs posts that are talking about lindsay lohans best friend that was arrested and had go to jail. So, a comment like "Its cool that lindsay has to go to jail" would not get approved, as the post is talking about her best friend.. (just as an example!).

    You put the search operator (inurl/intitel/etc.) in the top search box and your keywords in the box below.

    Yes, definetely! It also depends on what kind of niche you are trying this method. If you target a niche (for example: SEO) where the blog owners have a lot experience in all kind of tactics the approval rate is not that good as if you use this for blogs where most of the owners just delete spammy comments.

    ... and do two runs:
    1. Use a keyword as author name
    2. Use a common name as author name

    Then, after you did (1) using a scrapper (maybe a custom built one), see which comments sticked and which didn't and record the list. Now you have a list of blogs where you can use keywords as anchor text. You don't even have to waste the comment messages because you can reuse the ones that didn't got approved on (2).

    I've bought scrapebox since it first came on the scene. Most people don't know how to use any software like this correctly. The best way to use automation tools like this is slowly. Build your site, get content and then build backlinks to hot properties slowly. Don't blast your backlinks.

    If you get hundreds of results, use a pareto.

    Take the highest PR and post manually, adding to the discussion,

    • Refer to previous posters by name. This is a great way to get approved.
    • Disagree with previous posters but in a constructive way
    • Post more than once, and dont put a link in the body until at least the SECOND post.
    • Make a longer post Not waffle, but add to the conversation more. Maybe 40 words
    The low PR stuff, (the majority)

    • Make a decent length post
    • Make it relavent to something general in the area you are posting.
    e.g. A conversation obout 3dtv,s is a few comments long. You can be safe by having a post which reads.

    See how that post could interject into almost ANY conversation about the topic of 3DTV without seeming like spam?

    When you have a good post, and got the spin text nicely sorted BLAST THEM OUT TO THE LOW PR SITES.

    High PR (I generally go 5+) manually post
    Low PR Autopost - but put some thought into it.

    Linkbuilding - even with Xrumer and the like will become FAR more effective.

    Thanks go to the OP for this thread.

    Some ppl use mass commenting by searching for keyword/viagra, that way they get mostly auto approved junk blogs but for some guys it works.

    I personally use SB mostly to find quality high traffic/PR blogs and actually take my time to read what the post is about and make relevant quality post. I rather have 10 PR4 quality links than 5000 junk ones. I have sites in finance and rank high with less than 50 backlinks

    Thanks for post. I have the almost the same techniques as you (even i bought the software like 5 days ago) .... however it is the crucial thing is to find relevant blogs. celebrities are really helpfull

    For google you have to use inurl: and intitle:

    But for yahoo use title: instead intitle: inurl should work as well

    For Bing intitle works inurl do not.

    Please let us know more about avoiding blacklisting by akismet. I used it first about 5 days ago and my domains is banned (thought it has got 1000 links and counting) by akismet because i screw my comment by using 3 level deep spinign syntax instead of just one level.

    So if I
    1) Find relevant blogs for celebrity keyword :)
    2) Make awesome comment and spin it properly (now i use PAR + txt collector and then just paste in comments file - one comment per line. I vary number sentences - paragrafs as well as words count in sentences.
    3) I have 20 private proxies for posting.
    4) many different names and mails

    How much comments should i do per day per site to avoid blacklisting. Also are there other factors except number of comments if i do 1-4.

    thanks

    I agree! I've tried scrapebox both ways. I've blasted thousands of links with generic but highly spun comments with little acceptance. But I've also filtered by page rank and actually taken the time to manually post to higher page rank niche specific blogs.

    When I manually post, I still use scrapebox to spin my comments from a comment file that I have written for that niche.

    I have to laugh when I look at a blog that's been hammered with spammy comments. I know that somebody out there with scrapebox is partially to blame for it.

    Absolutely. Creating manual comments on high PR blogs can be very useful and you don´t risk a blacklisting by askimet, if you do it the right way. And yes, especially those generic comments are a waste of time and bandwidth since they only get auto-approved on low-quality blogs, that mostly are totally spammed... :))

    Hey moonlighsunligh thanks for adding this.. thats good to know! :D

    Thats an exellent addition to this thread.. Thanks Scritty, very valuable information for people that make manual comments! And refering to previous posters by name is btw a very good method to show the admins of the blog that you really visited their blog, and took some time to read the other comments.. EXCELLENT, thx.
