Many bloggers include commenting on other blogs in their overall marketing strategy and as I have mentioned before, it’s an effective tactic. But what about paying someone else to comment on other blogs for you?
Buy Blog Comments is now promoting a service that will post comment spam on blogs for those wanting to increase their SEO ranking.
“BuyBlogComments.Com is the first of its kind. Finally you can purchase quality blog comments without the stress of finding someone to write the comments, or buying some high priced automated program. We specialize in selling blog comments for blackhatters who are looking for good quality backlinks. We have three different types of packages, you can either buy 100 blog comments, 500 blog comments, or 1000 blog comments at a time.
Blog comments help your site rank better in the SERPs. We hired a few people who go through a list of blogs in a database we set up and pick out blogs that are in your niche. They then read through blog posts and leave a comment that has to do with the blog post they read, that way it wont get deleted. Your backlink will then be on a targeted blog, giving you more weight in the search engines.”
The pricing is as follows: 100 comments for $19.99, 500 comments for $99.99, and 1000 comments for $199.99.
There are several ongoing discussions about this new service and I’m happy to report that the reaction is mostly negative. You can find examples here, here and here. Of course, John Chow thinks it’s a good idea but the pricing is too high… why am I not surprised by that?
I have to add my voice to the chorus on this one and recommend that you avoid using this service or any other service like it. Spamming your links across the blogosphere will ultimately do your blog more harm than good. And these people will be speaking on your behalfâ€¦ maybe even using your name.
Do you really want to trust a stranger with your online reputation?
