    Right now I just tried to make a manual post in one wordpress blog, but after making the comment, the page just reloaded, and no action was taken, so then I replaced my website link with another one and then it was approved/under moderation. I tried this in about 10 wordpress blogs, including my own wordpress blog which occurred the same.

    Is the link of my site in a spam blacklist?
    Anyone here experienced the same issue?
    How can this be reverted?

    That is very strange. It does sound like your site has been blacklisted somehow. Maybe it isn't the site itself, but just certain words or phrases in your site name. Not really sure, I've personally never experienced this.

    Right now I was checking and you are right smallgiant... now I see that the entire name of my site is what is blocked. It doesn't matter if I put mysite.com or mysite.net or mysite-something.com, because of the "mysite" it wont accept it, and just a couple of days before I was able to post with my website link, so this is new to me.

    Is the name of your site something others might find offensive?
    Maybe you broke some type of copyright or something.
    Honestly, that is very strange. If you were doing a ton of spamming then maybe your site is just blacklisted. I don't know if it will be permanent or not. Sorry, maybe someone will have a better answer.

    Actually it's not offensive at all. :p Even kids go to my site, so no, the name itself of my site is fine. I indeed made some spamming, that can be the only reasonable reason of my blacklisting, but how come I am the only one (that I know) to have this problem? I'm absolutely sure they are people here that are spamming at a non stop rhythm.

    Maybe someone reported your site or flagged your posts. That is really the only thing I can think of.
    Not sure how to go about reversing it if you even can.

    Now I know my site name is blocked from akismet. If I use goo.gl or bit.ly to hide my site name will it count as a valid backlink?
