WTS - Access to massive (9,000+) CommentLuv-enabled blog database
Share on: 
fb share twitter share gplus share more share

I initially created this for myself (honestly), but realized that others may want access to it.

What I have created is a database of Wordpress blogs that have the CommentLuv plugin enabled. If you don't know what CommentLuv (or CommentLuv Premium) are, go google it. But basically, you leave a comment and below the comment you receive a free link (usually dofollow) back to your latest blog post, or a recent blog post of your choosing. Very cool.

So I have this database that is automatically being added to/updated by a crawler that I also developed.

My application runs weekly SEO stats for each blog (root domain/subdomain) to get ranking/link/trust numbers from seoMoz, semRush, Majestic SEO ( Trust Flow , Citation Flow ), Google Pagerank, Referring Domains, Alexa Rank, etc. It also determines whether they use the standard or premium plugin, and whether the recent blog link ( to your blog ) are dofollow, nofollow, or unknown. Oh yeah... the feed URL is also in the database.

Right now the database is up to ~9,300 unique blogs ( by unique I mean all different root domains/subdomains ). Over the past week, an average of 200 new commentluv-enabled blogs have been added and ranked per day.

So with all of that being said, I'll attach a (blurred-out juicy area) screenshot of the online version of my database.

Every column is sortable, searchable, and a couple or columns are filterable.. if you only want blogs running the premium plugin AND dofollow -- easy. You can even hold down shift to utilize multi-column sorting. It's very neat and crazy fast at searching & sorting.

What's the catch? I can't decide if I want to keep it all for myself or sell it. Obviously, the thought of monetizing this is enticing, but I don't want people to abuse it and have all of the high ranking blogs remove the plugin due to garbage comments being posted.

So... would you find a service that provided this database useful? Would you pay for it? How much?

I'm considering these options:
  • Sell subscription-based access to the database
  • Sell blocks (5 blogs, 10 blogs, etc) of items from the database
  • Other ideas?

If you are interested, let me know why and how valuable a tool like this would be to you. If I do decide to sell it, it might be a subscription-based service with a monthly fee. I would personally pay at least $100/mo for it if somebody else provided this service.

I need as much honest feedback as possible before I make a decision to share this in any form (for a price) or not.

The database is now up to 9,950 unique hosts (blogs). The top 25 dofollow-confirmed blogs have a domain authority from 80 - 56 which is fairly impressive. Anybody interested in this, just let me know your thoughts.

While I don't normally respond to questions that don't make sense.. or are not really English.. I will. I think what you are asking is: "Can multiple users view it at once?"

The answer is yes.. It's built using scalable infrastructure. I would never even consider having more than 20 active subscribers at this point due to the many ways it can be abused or shared and that would ruin it for everybody.

It sounds valuable, too good to bring to the masses though. Abuse would kill it in no time.
