Riding the Spamwave
Greetings! Very useful advice within this article!
It is the little changes that produce the biggest changes.
Thanks a lot for sharing!
Ahhhh… don’t we all know and love these little pieces of poetry that grace our WP comment inbox?
Lovingly crafted by … born from the fingers… Put out in millions by a script.
However, let’s put them to use.
Let’s have some more examples first:
A person essentially lend a hand to make seriously posts I would state. That is the very first time I frequented your website page and up to now? I surprised with the analysis you made to create this particular publish amazing. Fantastic activity!
and of course just a series of cryptic letters/numbers.
What are those guys aiming for?
Simple: They are trying to find blogs that auto approve comments, without checking for spam.
Once the comment goes life, they can find it via google and put the blog on the list of victims.
So, what can I do?
1. You can find them, too
Just take the spam out of your spamfilter and search for those sentences (phrase search) or cryptic numbers.
But add a bit. How about adding your keyword? So we pretend we are in the xbox niche:

2. Make a list with your findings
3. Sort that list
You then sort the list by any criteria you have in mind. Pagerank is an obvious one, be creative.
4. You now have a list of victims, provided by people trying to spam you.
OK, that’s fine and dandy, but how do I stand out?
By filtering the list by keywords and PR, you can find some pretty nice blogs that just have comment moderation off. This is actually pretty common.
Don’t make the mistake of spamming them!!
Take the high road and post useful comments, with some links in there.
You already know your comments will be approved, so it takes a lot of legwork out of the comment posting process.
