    Instead of those crappy "{Nice|Interesting} post" shit. This is really absolutely exploited.

    What about contextual blog comments which fit somehow to the blog post? There should be really potential in that idea, right? :) Why is no such programm existing yet?

    Lots of people do, you scrape a couple of sentences from the post or from another comment and quote it and then put a genericish response after it.

    Did not think about that - this might be one method more. And what tool do you use for that?

    What about searching a database of comment snippets and putting the most appropriate?

    That would be an approach too. And I don't know of any specific tools but I do it with a scraper coded in VB and call it from my uBot script. Pretty messy but it works.

    This is a research topic of computational linguistics.. Google itself is researching on this !!

    I have created a program which can UNDERSTAND general sentences. And it can be used to create contextual comments !

    I am always interested in programming things.

    What is the base of your code? A chatter-bot like alice? Or apache lucene?

    What exactly do you mean by understand? Could you enlighten that a little?

    Thanks!

    Did it pay? I mean, do you have additional success with your scraper? When comparing it to solely generic comments?

    Thanks!

    Personally I think a better approach is to use a bunch of generic (spun) comments related to the niche rather than getting into some freaky AI shit. eg. If the blog is about recipes, you post something like "Thanks, I made this one for my kids and they loved it!" - the comment is specific to the niche but general enough that it will apply to most posts within the niche.

    Blog comments aren't worth the effort to get into time consuming linguistic analysis - time that could be better spent elsewhere.

    Obviously you're going to get better results a) the closer you can match your comment to the subject of the individual post and b) the better written you can make your comments, but with blog comments being worth what they're worth, there's a definite point of diminishing returns on time spent.

    First of all I used data mining algorithms to extract valuable data from thousands of comments related to specific niche.

    Than I did some "Sentiment analysis" using some in-house natural language processing libraries.

    and based on more NLP tools and techniques I succeeded in creating relevant comments..

    That's all.. :)

    IMHO depends on some factors. I am already generating contextual blog comments and seems to work nice. Currently I am testing on a larger scale if this really makes sense - so far I can and that means to check how many comments do stick. I need 1 day to feed my database by scraping 1M or so pages. When this is done, I can generate contextual blog comments about 25k/hour. The actual posting process is faster. ==> 15-20k per hour alltogether on an older quad-core and big potential to improve speed by optimizing the code.

    I use contextual, fresh, manual blog comments all the time. Granted I only do this when posting to blogs that have decent PageRank, and low OBL's. I know that this is BHW, and most people are only concerned with super spam, but I've found that Scrapebox can be used to not only spam the sh*t out of blogs, but also to point you to high quality blogs worth posting manually to. On those blogs, alot of the generic

    "{Hi|Hello|Good Day|Greetings} I {liked|enjoyed|reading} your blog {very much|alot}! I will {come back|return} to {read|view|browse} it again."

    Will not stick.

    You've got it! There's also an advanced way (or ways) of using SB, but it looks like nobody wants to talk about it :D

    Kalrudra, are you still working on the contextual comments?

    Are you interested in a s mall competition to compare our engines?

    Or anybody else?
