This is the funniest link spam I have received in a long time. I am sure some of you guys have seen this before but across hundreds of sites (network) I have never seen this (granted I don't read alot of link spam attempts so maybe it is common). Anyway here is how you know you suck at SEO - when you can't even use the link spam tools right. Heres the blog comment message I got hoping for my approval

{
{I have|I've} been {surfing|browsing} online more than {three|3|2|4} hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
{It's|It is} pretty worth enough for me. {In my opinion|Personally|In my view}, if all {webmasters|site

{realize|recognize|understand|recognise|know} {so that|in order that} I {may just|may|could} subscribe......................(goes on for maybe a thousand words).
1) Its 2014 and this poor soul is still trying comment blasts
2) its 2014 and he's doing a very limited spin
3) its 2014 and with all the tutorials for all the comment spamming tools out there (and for years) he still can't get the spin option right.
4) Its 2014 and yeah the links he is trying to drop (not included in copy and paste) are STRAIGHT to his money site
5) Even without the spinning your grammar sucks

Take this as a lesson on how NOT to leave blog comments or better yet just don't use links spam tools to leave garbage comments on pages all over the net.

      hahahah. Yeah. It's always a bad idea to outsource SEO blog commenting on Fiverr.

        It's cool tho. I had to hit my man Niko up thanx to you lol. It's been so long since been here, everything changed, SEO section more focused, less threads, but still dumb questions and noobs looking for short cuts to success, I guess some things never change, but still good place to learn IM.

        Btw what is that new search bar I see under popular sites now, I love it, Google stepping there game up.

    For those that want to translate it into another language in Google translate and then translate it back again into another language and then spin it again and then put it back into English, here's a quick spin:

    I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.
    I could not refrain from commenting.
    Exceptionally well written!
    I'll right away clutch your (a)rss as I can't in finding you email subscription hyperlink or e-newsletter service.
    Do you've any? Kindly let me realize in order that I could subscribe......................
    Top notch! (Manually spun!)

      Haha! It actually sounds decent now, when you did the needed work. Unfortunately, that poor soul did not manage that far. Yeah, its 2014 out there, yet people fail in basics...

      Literally laughed for a couple of minutes on the fail and thanks for your translation!

    I find the spammers that add the same content to any field that's not filled funny. Makes it really easy to setup honey traps to block them before posting and wasting database queries etc... (improves performance not adding hundreds of comments each day to SPAM).

    I no longer need plugins like Akismet (stopped using Akismet because it uses Jquery for it's honeypot!) , have multiple honey pots, checks for duplicate content (same content in two fields trips a filter), length of comment author URL (if above X characters, X I set to 60, it's probably a spammer).

    Went from around 1,000 comments added to SPAM by Akismet per site to a trickle. Most SPAM is posted by bots and SPAMbots (or their users) are dumb.

    For those who spam blogs, it doesn't work any more, most blogs use nofollow for comment links which means Google doesn't see your link. Even when you do find a dofollow blog that doesn't moderate comments so many spammers post links it makes the links worthless and long term Google won't pass benefit from those blogs because they are going to bad sites (your site).

      You seem very environmentally conditioned which has resulted in a misinformed seo education. Spam is very much alive and well, it's just not alive on the levels to which you have been personally exposed too.

      Even when the algo decides to change it from a positive to a negative, it can still be used to manipulate the algo. For this very reason Google have made recent alterations, enough to upgrade it to 3.0.

        You'd shouldn't question him. He's been doing this for 15 years, blah blah blah, 9 months until a link provides full value, gotta reply to the most threads possible for 2 days straight, buy the theme - it looks like it's straight out of the 90's but comes with kung fu action grip....

        I've just sat here and watched him; it's better to laugh at the show than try to take serious at this point. Search through his posts for a good time.

            Sorry that I was away, I've furiously been reading about the captivating "StallionTheme." I'm amazed at how well it works, I didn't even need my pump!! I'm completely gay for his code...

              I've told you before you don't need it anyway. Playing around with it solo burns out the motor and as I understand it voids the manufacturer warranty

              so at least The Stallion theme is saving you some money.

                I would skip the Stallion theme and use this instead, highly recommended!
