Automatic blog commenting

13 replies
I was curious to know if automatic blog commenting software is frowned upon by google. I have seen some of these services being offered on the net, but if the same content (in this case comments) are being distributed throughout the net, that can't be a good thing.

I would love to hear feedback on this.

    I have read that Google is starting to crack down on autoblogging sites.

    This might be of interest as far as other bloggers' opinions:

      What does auto-blgging have to do the the OP's question about blog commenting?

      @The OP

      Automated blog commenting is a hot topic, some will say it is spam since it is automated and contributes nothing to the affected website, others will argue that it isn't spamming as it isn't technically illegal and that if you open your websites up for comments, then they are perfectly legitimate.

    Are you asking about autoblogs or automatic blog commenting using software? Goggle certainly doesn't like autoblogs .. If you are asking about automatic blog commenting using softwares, well you should be fine as long as you don't abuse the system.

    Auto comment are crap anyway. Make good comments on big websites and you'll get the quality traffic you need.

    I would personally not use auto blog commenting.
    I prefer to actually read the article and make a nice comment about it. Then add a link in the link/URL box.

    It is on the black hat side of link building, so it's basically up to you if you wish to use them or not; I personally think that they are pretty good for second (or third) layer of links...

    I use automated software for commenting, and trust me, it does work if you know how to use the piece of machine in your hand. The biggest advantage of a software like SB is in scraping, filtering blogs, on which you can manually comment upon. To manually find high PR blogs is next to impossible, especially if you are searching for a niche.

      I am not familiar with auto blog commenting software myself, but I can see why it is frowned upon by so many because of the way the LARGE PROPORTION of commentators use it. I'm sure that it could be effective in the RIGHT hands, but with so many people making useless comments on non-relevant blogs it is hard to see why google wouldn't frown on it.

      As for actually making comments, wouldn't it be of more benefit to you (and to the people reading the comments) to tailor make your comment for the website it's purposed for? A comment following the discussion, providing good input and adding value to the conversation will carry far more weight than a generic (even if it is slightly insightful) comment produced automatically.

      Hope that helps,

      David

    Don't waste your time! Google already has enhanced it's algorithm so that it'll slap on site developed by spammer.

      If you run more than one blog, you quickly figure out which of the comments have arrived thanks to auto-commenting. It becomes an automatic zap - because the comments are generally junk and the links are dubious.

      The whole point about putting a comment on a blog is to put your point of view, add to the conversation and maybe leave a link.

      Auto-comment rubbish makes my blood boil!
