Spamming Blog comments and Forums

No SpamSpammers have tried to post their stupid content 143 times since June 8, 2015 as comments to my articles at the Affiliates Marketing Reviews blog. More than 70% from this postings got automatically deleted.

Spamming blog comments and forums does not help you in SEO or brings you more visitors to your page. All the CMS (Content Management Systems) are adding by default the attribute 'nofollow' to the links entered in the comments area. This is telling to the search engine crawlers that they should not follow the link. It can even happen that you get exact the opposite result then you like if your links got collected to many times with a 'nofollow' attribute and the search engine interprets them as spam. In such a case your ranking will get lower instead of higher.

By following the links from the spammer I have seen a lot of suspicious sites, which are it even not worth to write a negative review about them because they are a big secret in the world wide web. With an Alexa global ranking of 3 million and above would be even a negative review a promotion for the site which is bringing more visitors in one week than they have during one year.

The most of this spammer are only looking how to get as much money as possible during a short time. For this they are trying to sell some useless products. This spammer are so stupid that they even don't know it, that as higher the promised earnings per sale is as more difficult is it to sell the product. They are still dreaming from "getting rich quick".

The scammer would have more success if they would invest the time for writing SEO or quality content for their site instead of searching for forums and blogs where they could drop their content.

In any case they should make first a product background check if the offered product itself is not already a scam. It is hard to sell something if the sales page gets already blocked from a Virus security system like 360 Total Security, Adguard/Adblock plus, Web Of Trust or some other browser filter. This makes the sales page not really trustful and keeps potential customers away. The ad blockers are already coming to a problem for the advertisers. A lot of people are already using such ad blocker.

There are enough good solutions for promoting a good product. If a product is already listed as useless in forums or blogs, then you need not promote it. In such a case it would be better to search for a better product and which you are able to handle. If you know nothing about the product, then you would not be able to promote and sell it. You need not try to sell dubious male enhancer, anti aging products, body building helpers, etc. if you are not able to present the product. Making a single webpage is not enough to attract visitors or get a good position at the search engines.
