I have been blog commenting heavily in the past few days to create backlinks for my sites.
I give relevant comments and I do them manually (I believe being as white hat as possible). At the rate of about 100 comments a day.
Today, I realized that I can't seem to make comments anymore? When I hit the post comment button, my comment does not appear, I don't even see the 'your comment is awaiting moderation message'. I also can't comment on pages that accept comments without moderation.
I know this for sure because I am able to leave comments on those same sites through the HIDEMYASS proxy website. But not without proxy.
Looks like my IP has been banned by wordpress.
Any of you guys faced similar issues? Will I be able to comment again?
Thanks guys for all the response. Am updating to let you know that (it seems) I can't add comments to promote one of my websites anymore. I can still add comments to backlink my other sites, but not this particular site.
I gather that it is probably that i tried to add 100 backlinks to backlink 3 pages on this particular website in a single day. Although the blog comments are on 100 different site, I gather that most of them are on wordpress and somehow, that particular website has probably been labeled as spam.
Lesson learned! Never over promote (through blog commenting) a particular website in a single day.
Best of luck to you guys and thanks again!
