Every time someone spams your website with a comment theyre are being stupid for many reasons:

1: Spam backlinks are bad for seo

2: It makes webmasters angry

3: The backlinks let the webmasters who you just made angry know what your website is.

So the point of this post is basically a call to arms for all warriors. When you have a bad day or if a comment really makes you angry then take it out on the spammers. Go to their website and write anonymous abuse in their contact form telling them how you're going to backlink blast them with 100,000 backlinks in 1 day for spamming your blog. Tell them they will be deindexed from Google after you blast them. Be creative! There are thousands of ways to scare the living crap out of them! Basically make them poop in their little panties with fear and then let us know what you did in this thread. Make sure not to give away who you are to the spammer though, you don't want to compromise your website. Also ONLY go for the worst offenders who really take the piss with their comment spam.



Here is my spammer payback story: Some douche decided to spam 10 comments on my website for his crap product. I went to his website and it had auto approve comments as well as a comment feed on the side of the page that displayed the comments on EVERY PAGE ON HIS WEBSITE! What a complete moron he was. I then proceeded to write a comment that said "Do not buy from this man. He comment spammed my website and will probably steal your money because he is a spammer" on the next line I pasted in 20 links to adult websites (I hear google likes adult links lulz). I then proceed to copy, paste and repost it onto 30 pages on his website (a rule of thumb for revenge is to give it back 3 fold) these comments then showed up on every page of his site too (including the home page) because of the comment feed. Hopefully he learned his lesson and decided to respect other webmasters.

    Too many people here are under the delusion that their
    comment is not spam and adds value. And even if it was
    spam, it still adds value. And even if it doesn't add value,
    and is spam, your site needs to just accept it...Because
    that's a great way of getting links. Some guru said so.

    Google has for at least a year told people that comment
    pages are nothing but junk. Only a handful actually ever
    read what google really says, so you get failed threads.

    Just like EMDs. So much nonsense about google slapping EMDs,
    that people are just quacking like ducks over nothing.

    I wish people would stop propagating fairy tale myths about
    panda, penguin, emd, etc. and actually listen and read what
    google really says.

    Like friggin' comment spam.

    There is no need for the average webmaster to ever allow comments.
    So if you really want to stop spam, you'd turn off comments. They
    add no value, change the dynamics of the page, and are against TOS
    for adsense anyway.

      Some people like actually like talking to their fans though, as well as other people enjoying being able to post comments. Just because Google says comment links are bad for SEO doesn't mean comments are bad.

      Anyway along the lines of removing comments I have noticed websites are implementing the Facebook login comments system to their sites. Perhaps that is a good solution.

      Yeah it was mean however in a way it is better for him to learn that way than getting slapped with a google ban.

        Google is not talking about stuff like yahoo, espn, big fan sites, etc. They
        are talking about websites from you and me that propagate spam. Those
        big sites turn off html, and/or make all links nofollow. Completely different
        story.

        Turn off comments. Period. But then, it seems you don't want to really
        take care of business, as you too want comment spam....

        So, enjoy the spam.

        Either turn it off, or stop complaining.

        Webmasters just don't realize that all comments are spam. Google
        will ban your adsense for allowing comment spam. Now how are
        you going to differentiate? I know. You don't have adsense so you
        don't care.

        Guidelines on user-generated spam - Webmaster Tools Help

        Read between the lines. Especially this:
        "Since spammy user-generated content can pollute Google search results, we recommend you actively monitor and remove this type of spam from your site."

        They can't spell out all situations. 90% of the fail threads here are from
        people who shmooze and ignore google, or are under the false assumption that
        they are "doing nothing wrong."

        So, rock on, people. Rock on.

        Don't complain about spam if you refuse to really stop it.

    I'm sorry howto but that was mean. Some people are still struggling to learn about SEO and they make mistakes on the way.

    Go to their website and write anonymous abuse in their contact form telling them how you're going to backlink blast them with 100,000 backlinks in 1 day

    LOL

    If they already spam they might love the extra 100k backlinks in 1 day
    Most of them use it as tier 2 links so that sure ain't gonna frighten them.

      Ha ha they probably would. Either way it is something amusing to do while waiting for my backup to complete.

    Just enable akismet and add "http://" to the list of words that automatically sends comments to moderation.

    That way, every comment that gets pass akismet, and includes a URL will be held for moderation. Comments made without URLs will get approved immediately. (that's like 60% of all my real comments). Your real users will appreciate that.

    There's no excuse to not deal with your comment system. If you don't want to, just disable it.

    Just don't allow links in the comments, period. That will eliminate the majority of them. Anyone who is leaving a comment with a link in it (unless it happens to point to an article that answers a question or backs up an argument) is spamming. End of story. You can rationalize it all you want. They are not trying to add value to the site. They are trying to get a link.

      Comment spam revenge? If i did that to each person that comment spammed me I'd have no time to do REAL things-ya know things that actually matter? Not trying to be rude OP, but that sounds like a lot of spare time you have.
