    Let's assume relevant postings, so no blind spam but highly targeted stuff.

    The usual blog commenting is nice, but what about trackbacks and pingbacks. I performed some small scaled tests for each method and came to the conclusion that commenting works best (normalized efficiency 1.0), pingback works reasonably (~0.35) and trackback mostly fails (<0.05).

    How do those method work for you? Which do you prefer and why?

    To be honest, I've never really had much luck with trackbacks and don't care much for ping backs so commenting is where it's at for me. Now it all comes down to if I'm in the mood for doing some manual commenting on high PR blogs or mass posting.

    i found this thread in the search .. imagine that :D

    wanted to give it a bump. i recently tried to manually post on some WP sites and got the white screen. thought maybe askimet thingy got my url or something. fresh ip and tried it with a new url and still got white screened.

    there were not a lot of comments but there were a lot of trackbacks.
    are trackbacks just as good for backlinks as comments?

    I practise lots of blog commenting, but I believe trackback has its own advantage. In fact I used to do lots of trackback before there were any blog commenting tools.

    Is it possible to get a image here on BHW about that stuff? I mean, I use my own scripts, and I do not know if ScrapeBox even supports trackback, does it?

    Pingback, on the other side, is maybe the first people stepping into GH link-building consider.

    And everybody has already heard about pingcrawl, right :) ?

    are trackbacks considered straight backlinks too?
