    Just needed to get this off my chest.

    I have reviewed about 12 different blog comment services lately that all promise "high quality" "manually placed" backlinks on non-spammed sites.

    But every. single. report. I've seen with these descriptions on there has included backlinks from sites like these:
    clan-takeda.com
    cristalab.com (I think I've only ever seen this site up ONCE in about 50 visits)
    namaste-publishing.com
    sportscoachuk.org

    There are loads more but every time I open a report and see backlinks from these sites, I die a little inside. So, to save you guys time by having your threads constantly rejected and to save my sanity, I wanted to compile a list of the sites that have been spammed to death.

    High quality blog comments do NOT come from a page with 100+ OBL's, 5+ second load times and do-follow OBL's to casino, pharma or porn sites.

    High quality, manually submitted blog comments do not look like this:
    To select well among old things, is almoal to inventing new ones

    If you're describing your blog comments as "High Quality" and I see any of these sites in the report, or blog comments that look like they're written by a schizophrenic poet on acid, they will be immediately rejected!

    This is my starter-for-ten list of sites that should be left to be picked apart by the WF spammers - feel free to add your own or things you hate seeing:

    ... and breathe...


    clan-takeda.com
    cristalab.com
    namaste-publishing.com
    sportscoachuk.org
    loriginelmagazine.com
    theclassical.org

    I Totally agree... for whatever reason blog comments have been stuck in the stone ages. They run off the same sheets they used years ago and they almost all share a good chunk of sites like you mentioned. I wish I knew what it was about BCs that was so hard to do RIGHT. Which is really frustrating because quality comments COULD be a very helpful thing, some seller could make bank if he did it right.

    Hi, I'm a total noob. I would really love to get info on how to start a blog commenting service. Seems like something a noob can do. Any pointers will be highly appreciated.

    Honestly, that's cool - knock yourself out. :D There's a place for low-quality crappy spam blasts. As long as it's accurately described, I ain't got a problem with it.

    What about the services here that are titled "Get Page 1 Rankings Now" or "Guaranteed Page 1 Rankings"? Those are pretty misleading especially to newcomers.

    I think what part of the problem might be is that QUALITY blog comments are something that needs to be done manually. And while many sellers CLAIM to do their comments manually, most appear to just be well laid tool-based blasts.

    Yep, completely agree with you. We don't allow people to say they're no1 or "the best" or "the biggest". Someone can't say they guarantee page 1 results unless they explicitly describe their guarantee, whether that's money back or more work done till its achieved.

    However, these rules haven't always been in place and, unfortunately, we're human and do miss stuff on occasion.

    So, if you see one of these report it. I'll take the offending words out of the title and offer the seller a chance to replace it as long as it doesn't break the rules. If it's in the sales copy, we'll give them a time deal to replace the content with something more accurate.

    We're aware of these issues and we are working through them one by one but reporting stuff like this helps us pick up on the worst cases.

    I've always been a little skeptical on the backlink marketers in the first place.

    A lot of the guys on BHW sell really good stuff actually, its really the (very) few that give the many a bad name. Luckily the mods have done a REALLY good job of keeping things tighter/cleaner than ever. I'm guessing the forum update made their jobs easier in that regard. You don't see the shenanigans that went on way back in the day with sellers promising BS stuff they couldn't deliver. Its a new day.

    Now, what would happen if I start a "low quality" blog comment service but actually provide a high-quality blog comment service? hahaha I think I should be banned for not providing the service as stated, right? xD

    Glad I stumbled upon this thread. Another aspect may be the pricing of the blog commenting packages. They are pretty low and thus may be used to do via some software.

    Hoping someone would launch a quality thread soon for comments.

    Great to see BHW doing cleansing. Cheers to all the mods :)

    Depending on just how similar those lists are I'd be looking into the members it could easily be the same person with multiple accounts. There's more than a few sites out there on this whole internet thing and to see the same ones repeatedly - despite the qualifications - is a bit shocking.
