A lot of my blogs get hit with these types of comments
T7IpKA vjaducymlrxl, pbydosucxtev, [link=http://wrelrjidkdth.com/]wrelrjidkdth[/link], htt://ciqestxksitp.com/

Total waste of time, invalid links and random letters

Is this some sort of Anti warrior who has been destroyed by google because he was using blackhat backlinking ? He has now got so p1ssed he just spams crap in anger to try and screw things over for everyone ?


Or is he some sort of want to be hero, spamming crap so webmasters learn to clear up their blogs ?

    This is not a Black hat SEO technique, This is called SPAM, Lots of intelligence is required to perform Blackhat.

      Because eventually, they will get a worthless back-link from some un-administered, poorly secured site.

    Ya I've get those types of comments frequently on my blogs. I almost feel bad cause with the time they spend sending out junk they could actually make a thoughtful comment on a popular blog which would actually bring in traffic...

      it's probably a test to see if the comment is accepted before they spam out links - a pretty dumb way though.

    They're using those 'words' like 'slugs' so they can search for them later. That way they can see what's being indexed and from where.

    man slug is such a good word to describe that, why has slug fallen from my dictionary?

    What performance man said is correct but it's not really slug.
    This is how it works.
    1. Choose a string of characters that you won't get any result for in search.
    2. use a combination to make it specific e.g. braces so it's easier to find on google search
    3. include a coded link also in the same fashion. unindexed gibberish. normally bbcode is popular as many commenting systems accept it.
    4. run a bot who will scan IPs/domains and look for known postable urls like post.php comment.php etc. make the bot post the string
    5. wait 24 to 48 hours and run another bot to collect search results from google, yahoo, bing etc.
    6. The URL's returned are successfully botted sites.
    7. prepare the list and sell backlinks
    8. profit?

    then move to nigeria

    I suspect some sort of bot (maybe Scrapebox), looking for autoapprove blog pages. They set the bots to post unique character strings that would have no chance of being approved by a human, then in a few days do another pass to find which links have been approved. Then sell the auto-approve blog list.

    This kind of comments are not manual comments. They are automated. Some comments are posted by them in test purpose. The comment you have posted in the thread, may be a test purpose comment to see if the software works or not. My wordpress blog gets hundreds of such comments per month. It is very annoying.

    For every 99 comments that are rejected there will be 1 that automatically approves it, and thus a backlink! must work or people wouldn't bother right? I agree they are very annoying

      They resell the lists in the 'scammy backlink aftermarket.' Sort of a major time saver for junior league spammers.

      And obviously you define "work" as the process of the comment being approved, rather than the value in the backlink itself, right?

      Mass-commenting is about the stupidest, most non-effective form of spam there is - utterly pointless and a plague on a planet earth. Anyone who uses scrapebox for this purpose ought to be barred from the internet for crimes against, well, me.

        SPAM still works. Look at the SERPs and you might learn a thing or two. Yes, it might not prop a site up for long (a few to several weeks), but you can bank while it does.

        There are some niches that you will not be able to compete in unless you spam the hell out of the internet.

    People do spam for a reason. They do get some benefit from it. Also they are just interested in getting backlinks and don't bother about where they are getting links from.
