    I'm sure there are veterans here who will say "duh", so this is more for n00bs.

    I get this stuff all the time on my blogs:

    "Hello! My name is Alex and I stumbled upon your site while doing a quick Google search. Before I get into this, I would like to complement your site on the theme that is currently has, simple yet stylish. Back on topic, I really love the posts and the quality of them, most of the sites that write about the same things that you do are very repetitive and boring. I enjoy reading your posts, keep it up. Guess that?s all I?ll be posting, also, feel free to check out my sons site if you have time (I?m still working on mine, not the smartest in tech haha :p) free dj software or if that doesn?t show up, http://free-dj-software.*******.*** Keep on blogging! -Alex S."

    If I knew you personally and saw this I'd slap you in the face.

    What person in their right mind would approve this comment? It's an obvious attempt to spam. Not only is it poor social engineering, it's not even on topic with my blog. If you're going to spend time trying to get links from blog commenting, you gotta work on quality comments.

    Here is how I would re-write this:

    - First I would skim the article (either manually or with a keyword in whatever bot I've made) and get a feel for the subject matter of the post
    - Next I would work in the idea that I've found similar or relevant info regarding the topic on another site and drop the link
    - Thirdly, I would ask a question -- this shows I'm engaged
    - Most of all, I wouldn't compliment the person on their blog in general, that is an old and outdated method, and I'm not sure it really ever even worked

    So, if I found a post about DJ software and the costs of a specific app (cuz my keyword is "free DJ software") maybe my comment would be something like:

    "You have a good point there, most software is expensive. There are a few free ones, like <insert name of software here> (http://free-dj-software.*******.*** if you've never seen it, pretty dope) and some others, but for the most part if you want to be a DJ you gotta spend some real money on it. I wonder if you've managed to use your software on both Mac and PC, or just Mac? I'm on PC, that's why I ask.."

    See what I did there?

    Good.

    Learn how to comment, idiots. :reddy:

    No effin way. In fact I should put the real anchor in there (which I didn't).

    You deserve to be outed, both for being a dumbass and for spamming my site.

    He didn't post the full URL, so it does more harm than good LOL.
    But seriously, if you want me to remove your whole domain from my list, private message me it so it won't end up in my next projects.

    You're right. Ahrefs shows around 80k if I'm correct, I run them through an "indexer" (just pings it continuously) and I have it set to a specific amount of URLs.

    If you want, I can PM you part of the list if you send me your email to send it.

    How blind are you? There is no link to your site in my post. Go back and see before posting about it again.

    How stupid do you think I am? LOL

    I'd be interested in knowing what your ROI is.
    2 Dedis is around $200/mo just for comment spamming...
    And the offer pays out around $1.50...


    Anyway, not a very long-term business model, my friend.
    Happy spamming.

    Even if your blog comment is related and structured very well, I think akismet and owner of the blog will mark your comment for spam if you put links with anchor tags or link unnecessary products.

    Manual commenting takes a lot of time. What usually works is using real names and the main website.
