    Arrow Hard facts about comment spam

    Hello,
    Google wrote an interesting post about commenting on websites/blogs whatever. Here is a little bit of the post:
    It has probably happened to you: you're reading articles or watching videos on the web, and you come across some unrelated, gibberish comments. You may wonder what this is all about. Some webmasters abuse other sites by exploiting their comment fields, posting tons of links that point back to the poster's site in an attempt to boost their site's ranking. Others might tweak this approach a bit by posting a generic comment (like "Nice site!") with a commercial user name linking to their site.

    Just like Will said, it isn't that good anymore to buy blog commenting etc. It might help a little bit, but that wasted time and/or money can be invested in better things

    I still use it though, but mainly on top blogs, with good ranking. Shouldn't that help out?

    I have a feeling that Google is or will be able to detect spam-like comments (i.e. links to unrelated sites) and perhaps 'ignore' them in a sense. Buying blog commenting packages and such are something I'd recommend saving your money on. Invest in something else. Let the backlinks build naturally.

    I think this new policy would only affect blog commenting but not blog contents. So, blogging would be still a nice channel for promoting a site.

    The main value of blog commenting is the referral traffic. I doubt that there is too much seo value in the backlinks.

    Are you getting any traffic from the comments?

    Hate to break it to you but log commenting is still powerful and I often rank a new site by doing a load of blog commenting.

    Blog comments are great, but most blogs have nofollow attribute. If you have dofollow comments than it's great for SEO.

    Most people believe that there is minimal value given to blog comments.

    Google devalues off topic and low quality comments. But the jury is still out on the vaule of quality comments on trusted sites.
