    Just thought that I would share something here with everyone that I do to
    find great backlinks.

    If you have a blog then you know how bad it can get with spam comments
    coming in.

    When I get those, I take a part of the comment and do a search on Google
    for that text in quotes.

    Then with SEOQuake, I get the PR of those pages and go to the ones that
    are PR1 or higher and go and put my own comment on that page if the
    site is allowing your name to be hyperlinked.

    I have found many AA blogs with high PR like this.

    I do this all manually but i'm sure doing it with software will work better.

    Hope this helps out all the new IM people that are finding it hard to get
    backlinks to their site.

    That is a really good method for getting backlinks. Though people should make sure they comment on pages, that are not too overly spammed to death with comments.

    Yes I totally agree, that's why I to do it manually so I can see how many out
    bound links there are on the page.

    Plus I don't have software for anything yet. :(

    Your post just gave me an idea of something new. I'm gonna try it now and will post a report at BHW if it works. Thanks for hammering my head :)

    You can use Scrapebox for it:

    1. Just use the part of the comment as footprint and start scraping.
    2. After you have a list just check the page/url PageRank within Scrapebox.
    3. Comment to the urls with PR.
    4. After commenting is done do a "Check Link" in scrapebox immediately after
    5. The 'found' urls are the ones which are AA blogs and have a PR.

    As well as searching for spam comments, you could also make a list of spammers user names and search for those!

    You could also combine this with a CMS footprint, like "powered by wordpress", so the footprint would be:
    username "powered by wordpress"

    Just my 2c. :)

    Another method for using spam comments to your advantage is to change the text of the comment and remove the URL. It helps add fresh, original content to your site and its much faster then actually manually adding comments on your own.

    I do this sometimes and even change the persons name to a keyword that
    the page is about.

    Smart stuff. Will give it a go. I have like 400 spam comments that i used to rewrite (what a waste of time).
