Hi guys, I have finally decided to go to the other side and try some grey hat/black hat stuff. I didn't do it before because of some moral objections but a few days ago Google got on my nerve and I thought that enough is enough. So here is my first attempt at black hat/gray hat seo and results. I have a client whose video was on page 1 in Google for their main keyword for a while and then could be found among the top 100 results. Video was converting well for them so I decided to try to bring it back to page 1 so here is what I did. I have had a copy of Scrapebox for 2 years now but have never used it. So I dusted it off, bought a list of auto-approved comment blogs and fired up SB at them. Some of the posts on these blogs have more than 1000-2000 comments so we are talking spam big time. Anyway, I ended up with a few thousand successfully posted comments and that was it. I didn't try to index them, I though I would do that the next day (today). I was using random name/anchor text for the blog comments, but I didn't use the term I want the video to rank for - click here, Jordan e.t.c. So, this morning when I woke up I went straight to Google, typed in the keyword the video was on Page 1 before and ... it wasn't on page 1 . However, I found it on page 5, which is great considering the fact that it wasn't in top 100 yesterday (I didn't bother going past page 10). So I just wanted to share my results with you and will keep you posted what's going on with that video - whether it will reach page one or fall into oblivion. The point is that blog comment spam seems to be working. I don't know if it will be working on your white hat sites (even though I am testing it right now) but it seems to be working on YouTube videos. I'll be happy to hear your thoughts on that. Have you done something like that before? Can you tell me a better way to do it? Cheers?
