    At first I shrugged it off as someones program was just broken but I have kept getting these types of spams trying to hit my Wordpress blogs comment area.

    I'm sure others have seen these as well.

    I also thought well maybe this person is just pulling something and getting a few thousand backlinks and then regging these shitty generated domains 1-3 months down the road, but no, I have been checking them and none of the domains have been regged yet.

    This has been going on for 4+ months.

    What do you think is going on here? The spam comments dont bother me since they get filtered, the entire method just makes me curious as to how they could benefit from this... any ideas?

    Possibly building up 10000s of backlinks then registering. It would be a good trick

    or maybe its a foreign language that gets messed up by whatever tools there using

    I suspect they could be looking for auto approve blogs and/or testing out spam filters.

    That's exactly it, they are testing out things before they do a huge blast with a real site.

    I do the same with Scrapebox.
    One run with a bogus URL, check backlinks and use the successful links for a campaign.

    Now what's the point of the nonsense text between the url's?

    ive used this method on SB and xrumer ... testing out successful postings before doing the real campaign.

    I guess it makes it look like it is more than just a link...
