    I got a few sites up and been seeing lots of comment spam. I don't know if this is what those GSA and tools does, but it's useless imo.

    1. New site=no value
    2. Comments wont appear automatically
    3. No-follow

    And they kept flooding in.

    Newbies and their tools.

    Some people doing the churn and burn method would rather rank first for 2-3 weeks over ranking 1-8 for years because all they want to do is list a website for sale that's in first position for keyword and has a million direct links hooked to it.

    Most of them are noobs who are trying to build their Tier 1 backlniks with these tools.

    Some of them spam for their Tier 3 sites. (That's an wise idea)

    Ah I see.

    So for higher tier, it doesn't matter if the site is new, low pr, pa/da, and no-follow?

    Yes, it is just about indexing lower tiers.

    Idiots who are wasting their time with 1990s SEO haha. I mean the only thing they manage to do is give webmasters a headache
    when they start a website.

    You're assuming someone is doing this when it's a computer program doing it. To answer your question: a certain % of blog comments stick, so it's a numbers game. The more comments you leave, the more comments that become live.

    Because no tool can see if a site is auto approve or requires moderation. The job of the tools is to post and they do it.

    It would be better if you help these spammers and set the comments to auto approve. This way you will help them.

    I do know it's by a program because i am also contemplating if i want to buy such program.

    Good answer. I kept seeing this is a means of indexing.

    Not sure if trolling or for real. lol.

    But to everyone, I mean c'mon, it's a new wordpress site, by default it's non-auto. Not sure about other platforms but i suspect its the same. And who in their right mind would set auto approve before the site is properly set up? No one would set it to auto approve, except for more popular sites where they're too lazy to moderate tons of comments and rely on AI filtering.

    These tools could have better brains to know if it's:
    1. Aged
    2. Non wp or any other platform that has auto approve on. Which by my guess is probably low.

    So that it need not waste time and can probably speed up the task.

    Some are complete idiots you think this is some type of method to actually build links (really, look it up) and others use it for what are called "churn and burn sites" which just try to get as much spammy traffic to a website and bank off of it before Google slams the ban hammer on it.

    That's right clever spam doesn't work :beach2: Of course it is not wise to use your money site as a guinea pig to find what blogs are AA, but the solution to that isn't really that difficult to figure out (fake url cough and use the found links quick for the real links cough). As for the no follow etc, that is a myth surely people still don't believe no follow has zero value. Thats why idiots can displace a site with neg seo with no follow links, oh wait how can they if they have no value , yeah exactly.
