    I just wanted to say something about all generic comments splashed over blogs, guestbooks and forums. They are nearly always out of context and make no sense. And in the end - consider how 'I lIke this p0st!' comments look on your link profile? The blog may be Auto-Approve but that's no excuse for crappy comments.

    Back when Scrapebox was first released, many people said comment context doesn't matter, but I thought "It takes just as long to make a generic comment as it does a niche specific comment." So try this:

    1) Get a content scraper (I used Forum Generator for years, just for doing this). But that is old, and most here probably don't have it. Santos sells a great piece of software called: "Ultimate Comment Scraper", I am sure you have heard of it.

    2) Scrape comments using niche specific keywords.

    3) Filter through these comments. Some of the ones that work the best are questions or statements of fact...so look for that type. Copy them into notepad or similar.

    4) Use TBS or similar to spin the comments. I used to auto-spin, but recently started going through each comment and manually selecting the synonyms that make the most sense.

    5) You end up with some great comments!

    This isn't just about what Google looks for. It's also about what webmasters look for. I have had a lot of these types of comments pass moderation on blogs, I even get people responding to them from time to time. A comment on a moderated blog is worth much more than a 100 AA generic comments.

    At the end of the day you want something that looks legit. It doesn't take much work to do this, and will be one of the pieces in giving you a better backlink profile.

    My comment method is almost similar, but instead of using other comments from other blogs, I scrape questions from yahoo answers and use those as comments. I use that method + manual commenting. Works great.

    You can scrape comments with Scapebox, then spin them and reuse :)

    There's a demo video here:


    Yes, even if you only spin at sentence and word level so that the comments make grammatical sense and read well, you can still end up with millions of permutations, if done right.

    Comments should be relevant to the blogs you are commenting to.

    With a really bad spinner (in terms of readability) like TBS you'll just end up with a ton of unreadable comments that have no chance of ever getting approved.

    I pretty much do not get mass blog commenting directly to money site. I have tried that few times ... and i didn't get worthwile results. Around 1% acceptance rate for first 1000 comments but after that akismet bans my domain. So sucess rate becomes like 0.1% or less. Even worse out of these 0.1% like 90% are spammed autoapprove blogs. So i really doubt you will get more than 10 good links from your niche but for these 10 links, you will get 100 ones from spammy pages, which gonna ruind your site.

    I pretty much agreed with the OP here. 2 best types of comment are questions or facts. But I guess the questions type of comment are much better because they don't necessarily have to be precisely the same as the blog post your commented on
