    1. E-mail Akismet and request them to unban your website.

    2. Comment on other platforms other than Wordpress. Most moderated Wordpress blogs are protected by Akismet.

    Add your suggestions.

    I would be using disposable domains only for comment spamming. Have them 301 redirect to your real blog, so that when Akismet does ban them, not much damage done. You never want to spam your money site in any form, whether it's with Scrapebox, xrumer, etc.

    Do you still get the full SEO benefit of backlinks when you do 301 redirects?

    Akismet is really a pain in the neck.

    Just don't spam on blogs that have protection, it's simple. Email them sometimes work but they wouldn't answer you most of the time.

    You reap what you sow. This is why I much rather do manual comments by skimming through the articles and posting something relevant.

    manual commenting does not prevent you from being banned by Akismet.

    i used to do manual commenting for 2 years and may sites still get banned by Akismet..

    Try manual commenting 100 blogs a day and let us see if you site are still not banned.

    10k (confirmed) comments in the past 72 hours and still going strong ... let's see how far I can take it!

    Akismet now has IP Banning Capabilities. Akismet can ban your isp ip or your proxy ip when you use scrapebox heavily. ( several thousand comments in a day or so )

    I have started a similar thread like this one, this were my results:

    Don't bother writing an email. They most likely won't answer. You will stay banned.

    Buy a .info domain and comment with that one, just make it redirect to your site without a landing page or anything similar. It will pass all the link juice.
