You can get a lot of traffic from posting valuable comments. Everybody wants more traffic and commenting indeed does work if the comments contribute value to the posts they are added to.
Unfortunately many people seem to have heard about getting traffic from comments but have no idea about those comments needing to be of value.
It is ironic that in the last 30 days I have received more spam comments than ever on a post devoted to getting traffic from commenting which I wrote and posted on my blog about 15 months ago.
Since there is nothing about encouraging spam commenting in that post I have to wonder where these people posting comment trash learned to do that.
Anybody with an intelligence of a ten year old knows that spam in any form is not welcome.
Why is it then that people who have blogs and bank accounts think that their spam and trash comments will be approved?
They most definitely won’t.
But even if by some temporary inattention or a mistake they were to be approved, why aren’t the authors of this trash smart enough to realize the obvious?
Even if some other visitor to the same blog where the worthless comment found its way reads the trash, they won’t be in the least interested in reading anything else from the feeble-minded author of it.
If you are fairly new to blogging or if you are a prolific blogger but haven’t considered commenting before, you may want to read my blog post that I mentioned above. The title of the post is Get Blog Traffic Increase With Blog Comments.
That post received 75 comments, soon after it was published, which were approved and several dozen of trash comments lately.
It seems that spammers like to post their trash on older posts with the hope of not being caught. Not very smart behavior again.
People who spam comment think that they are smart and everybody else is stupid. They think that if they post 5 spam comments on the same post with slight wording variation that at least one of them will be approved.
People who spam comment are convinced that Google is stupid too. They must think that even if nobody visits their blog due to their worthless comments that at least Google will count their links due to the spam comments that will somehow make it through.
Don’t be a spam idiot posting spam comments that will only end up in trash and will damage your reputation with anybody who reads them and also with Google.
Be smart and post proper and valuable comments on other blogs and you’ll get traffic from them. I certainly have gotten traffic that way and continue getting it.
Have you read the post I suggested to you yet? It tells a story of my getting traffic from posting valuable comments with some concrete numbers.
Before you leave decent comments on this post you may want to watch a video or two, three or even four, if you like, from small internet marketing networking events that took place recently. The most recent ones come first:
Under the Skin Chip, Magnet, Magic Wand Fun Talk Video:
Breffo Spider Podium Tablet, Shot Gun Microphone Video:
Robotix, Transformers, Mexican Food Video:
No Noodles No John Chow Dot Com Pho a la Turkey Video:
What to do now?
1) Leave a comment telling me and the other readers what you think about trash or spam comments and those who are posting them.
2) Add anything else that comes to your mind about commenting and make your comment into a model comment of value of the best quality or, if you are less generous today, of a slightly better than passable quality and state which you think it is.
3) Tweet and bookmark this post for others to find it and leave their own comment or, even better for you, visit your own blog because of the comment you have left here.

I think the spam comments are mostly automated – it doesn’t take much work for them to join a program or download software that then will submit it to thousands of blogs at once. So they probably feel it’s worth trying since some blog owners will approve them (and some just have their blogs set to automatically approve all comments).

Thanks for the comment. If you are right about spam comments being mostly automated, which you may be, it is a very sad state of the blogging world. It’s beyond belief that people would stoop to that kind of an action, both the providers and buyers of such service.
As I mentioned in my post though, even if this kind of trash gets approved, it will be of no value to the spammer. It’s waste of money and in fact that money will only contribute to damaging their reputation if it has had any value before.

Yes – spam is mostly automated, but I get lots of spam from real readers. And there is not another word to describe them but the one used in this article – idiots! I just don’t understand why they waste their time.. Comments are ususally moderated..
May 31st, 2011 at 2:05 am
Yeah, there are programs that send like 30 000 commments for example and maybe 1% of them get approved or are on auto approve. This tactic is mostly used from people with spammy websites with cheap and fake products that are trying to get on the top results in Google.
Actually a pretty good way to recognize them is to search a part of them in google, since they are always already approved on many blogs. So if you find results, you know it is spam. I also block many bots by ip address in the .htaccess file.
Niki@Skype´s last blog post ..Skype 40 – Download
I agree with Josh. A lot of the spam comments are bots and not real people. That’s what Akismet and other spam-catchers are for. It’s the kind of thing that comes with the territory, unfortunately, and you’ll surely get more spam as you blog continues to grow. We’re seeing more and more automation in this field, including auto-tweets, auto-blogs, and auto comments. Sad state of affairs indeed.
Michael Kwan´s last blog post ..Ghostwriting vs Byline- Pros and Cons
April 3rd, 2011 at 2:23 pm
I really appreciate your comment. Akismet is usually doing a good job catching spam but lately quite a bit is getting through. I’m getting sets of 4 or 5 spam comments each from the same person. I mean I get too many spam comments from too many people and they come in sets or 4 or 5 per person.
If they are automated then it would seem that there is a new service for this crap which Akismet is not familiar with yet.
Again I fail to see the reasoning and its soundness thereof behind people doing this. Google indexes comments and these people will be found to be spammers anyway. Their blogs will become trash if they aren’t trash already.
Whether a software posts their trash or whether they do it by hand, their intelligence is way below par.
The spam bots are really effective, BUT if you want to clear them out (99%) you can just use the GASP plugin (the same guy who developed ComLuv, Andy).
GASP (Growmap Anti-Spam Plugin) + Akismet or similar = 0 spam.
But to the question of blog commenting: the automated tools unfortunately are effective for getting your pages indexed, if not ranking a bit.
Google’s always improving, until they get this nailed down (become essentially link-less), the plugins I’ve mentioned are the best I’ve found.

Welcome to my blog and thank you very much for your comment. I may eventually install the plugin you’re suggesting if Akismet doesn’t catch on to this. Getting pages indexed because of spam bots is like getting a name for being a criminal. I don’t see it being good for anything.
Google can tell already what is going on and the spammers are never going to be winners, that’s for sure.
How you been? Hoping all is well.
Spamming is stupid to do. Not only that, you can tell just how stupid just by reading the first couple of stupid lines that have nothing to do with your blog post.
Oh and my post is so great and you are a great writer and would you be writing more of this and on and on. What crap.
You are so right. I don’t understand why people do this stupid thing and think they are going to get away with it.
There dumb comments stick out like a shore thumb.
I guess the Internet is like a big city and in a big city you have the good the bad, the stupid and the smart.
You have all sorts of people. I don’t think spamming will ever stop because just like in a big city you are always going to have the crap.

April 3rd, 2011 at 11:57 pm
I’m very busy and fine these days. Thank you. And I appreciate your comment very much. I do realize that spamming is always going to be attempted and will be around. But I hope that it will be contained. Like a city the internet has to be continually cleaned up so that the dark elements don’t take it over completely.
For the most part spammers are being ignored. At least I don’t hear or read much about people speaking up or doing anything against them. Spammers have it too easy and maybe that is why they seem to be multiplying so much.
That spammers are lacking brain power and intelligence is so obvious. What they do is an exercise in futility. They do damage to themselves and everybody else. There is no point in that.
My hope is that the more intelligent of them will see the light and that the new people who get on the internet don’t adopt the ways of the spammers.
Take care Terry and I look forward to your next comment.
How Do Vance,
See you are really getting into networking now! it’s good to be social. You know we had a little discussions before on these spammers.
I have come to the conclusion that they are not looking for the traffic but the backlinks. If you have a higher PR then you will probably see even more spammy comments. So as we all progress in our marketing lives and our blogs get more exposure and increase in value then we will know doubt get even more spammers.
So the plugin that James mentions (GASP) could be something to look into and as it is from Andy it must be good as there are so many of us using ComLuv.

I was wondering how you were too since you haven’t visited for a while. As you know I appreciate your comments very much.
Yes, I’m really networking and that’s very good since I recommend others do it too.
As for the spammers I may have to use the plugin but I’ll do that only if it keeps on getting worse.
You are right about them wanting the links but the way they go about it is the stupidest way on earth. Google is smart and those links will have zero value anyway. Google indexes comments and shows them for everyone to see. How would you like to have those kinds of comments attached to your name?
I know, you wouldn’t and no sane person would want that either.
Andy is OK and his plugin will be good I think. If you install it, please let me know how it does.

It’s better to speak up right away. Thanks again and talk soon.
Definitely that for me is extremely annoying when people are posting on my blog spam comments. I simply can’t understand what is their logic. If you want to successfully promote your blog or your web business, don’t be lazy and make the effort to write a intelligent and readable comment.
April 6th, 2011 at 10:21 am
Welcome to my blog, I think you may be new to it. Yes, it’s very annoying to have to clean spam garbage.
You cannot understand spammers logic and nobody who is sane can. Spammers aren’t capable of logic. What they do it pollute and there is no sound market for this kind of pollution.
Those who trade with it pray on the feeble minded who buy into it.
You’ll never get an intelligent comment from a spammer. Even those that are intelligent sounding are not relevant to the posts they try to attach themselves to.
When in doubt check the website that they are trying to promote, that is behind them. It will have no credibility nor any decent and useful information.
Thanks for the comment.
Hi Vance! Long time no see…
Spammers must have a very detached, cold-blooded approach to what they do or just be completly lost. Knowing what it takes to write something reasonably readable, most of us cannot imagine how the kind of spam we see could work for anything.
They are certainly not to be imitated but perhaps there’s a lesson about a spammer’s persistance for the rest of us to consider (well, maybe I should speak for myself only).
Cheers to you!

Long time no see, hear or read indeed. How have you been? I hope you’ll visit again soon.
Spammers are idiots. I just trashed a comment that was likely not from a robot. But it might as well be. The guy giving me advice how to filter spam. Because of the grammar and nonsensical sentences I checked his blog and it was even worse than the comment. Articles probably spun hundreds of times over and with absurd usage of words. Complete gibberish.
How can anyone who is even half sane produce that kind of garbage in the first place and then promote it with garbage comments thinking that people will read it? Reading two lines of it is already too much for a person whose brain is normal. Nobody will ever return to read anything like that.
I don’t know about their persistence and for how long they keep on doing it. Perhaps it is possible to be insane and persistent at the same time. After all one of the definitions of insanity is doing the same things for years on end and expecting a different result.
You are very good at finding something positive in anything. I agree with you, that’s the way to be. For most people, those who do good, persistence is a virtue. For spammers and criminals, and to me they are almost the same, persistence is a virtue that multiplies evil.
Thanks for the comment. I’m so glad to hear from you again.
We should have a chat.
I’m a newbie here. I noticed your article when searching for blog commenting topics. I cant help myself but to commend you for a very helpful posts. I myself is a commenter to blog posts for a while now and have noticed that some of the comments are a bit spammy.
My site even got lots of spam comments every week thats why I installed an anti-spam software. Good thing to know that there are mentors like you who teaches the likes of us not to become spammers as well. Cheers!!

What plugins are you using? Akismet is pretty good but no plugin is perfect. It helps to know who your commenters are and check out the new ones. Copy and paste idiots are leaving a trail everywhere so it’s not so hard to find out who they are. After that they are marked forever.
good post….I think we can all generate traffic from blog commenting as long as we don’t spam. Hell, some blogs even offer the top commentators widget to reward commentators!

Thanks for commenting. You made a typo in the url of your blog but I corrected it so you will get a link that doesn’t end up in an error page. When you comment on my blog and your comments are of value, you will get the same quality of link you’d get for a top commentator. My links are all do follow.
first i got an expression that you dont like comments at all after having a previous bad experience … but decided i should comment, why should i put myself behind :)…….. I am not Spammer Idiot..I am new in this field…when i started, i got that do comment what ever you have in your mind and soon you will get your goal, having unlimited backlinks…but no one told me about the commenting with quality and with in the neche….now i realize whats the reality behind………i hope Vance! you will not throw my comment in your trash 😉
best of luck
April 13th, 2011 at 9:14 am
Valuable comments are always appreciated. I had new bloggers and website owners in mind when I wrote the post as well. It’s great that you read my post now. You can avoid posting worthless comments which bring only negative results and you can learn to give comments that people will appreciate and that will bring you good and positive results not only in the form of traffic but perhaps even in the form of new online friendships.
As for the commenting within your niche, you don’t have to stick only to commenting within your niche as long as your comments are contributions of value. For example if you comment on a blog on certain subject, stick to the subject of the blog and the post you comment on. Give your real opinion and add your experience or whatever. Never just give a lip service or promote your own stuff. That will get you in the trash or spam bin in a hurry.
Thanks for the comment and visit again.

You’re welcome. You got the message correctly. As long as you contribute something of value and show that you read the post by commenting about the subject of it and aren’t just giving a lip service and spitting out generalities, your comments will be approved.
You take care as well and visit my blog soon. Also check out my YouTube channel and subscribe there if you like it. That and my Facebook and twitter can be found by clicking on the “Follow me” tab on the right side of my blog posts.
Blog commenting is one of the most effective in driving massive traffic to our sites. I’ve said because I experienced with my website and with my work. There are different approaches of blog commenting and all boils down to ranking up to search engines. Even though comments have less priority in Google algorithm, it is still considered in viral marketing since comments make blogs updated in the eyes of Google spiders.

Please try again. Your comment could even be spam because it is still a bit too general.
Commenting is certainly helps to get traffic, we should use it in a conservative way.. The comment should be specific to the post, through this people know your URL and visit, if they find interesting they will become your regular visitors. But instead, many prefer spam, which are damn useless and we will get a bad impression on the commenter…….

If you will always keep what you wrote in this comment in mind while commenting, you’ll be doing yourself and everybody else a favor. The more specific you are the better. It’s the spammers who are very general and one can’t tell if they even read the first sentence of the post which of course spammers never do. Nice to see you visit again and comment. As long as you post real comments you are very welcome to do that on my blog.
Hi Vance, good article and good points within. I wish more people would take note that click through traffic will not happen from blog commenting unless the article is completely related to the product or service at hand, just like forum signatures and so on. Dofollow is the other side of it but I shan’t go into that 🙂

Im a beginner at Internet marketing so all this spam came as a bit of shock. I set up my flower blog and was delighted when I go comments, all telling my how valuable my articles were and how they would be visiting my site regularly. I thought they were a little over the top, but then I do strive to write good stuff about flowers, so maybe it was justified?
No. A friend just showed me, it is all spam. I am so sad. If anyone reads this and would like to make a genuine comment on my flower blog, please do! I’ll be looking at the plugins mentioned in these comments to cut down the amount of spam I’m getting. Thanks.

Over the top comments are always insincere and 99.9% of the time pure spam. A good clue is whether they even specifically relate to what you wrote. Generic comments belong to the trash bin every time you find them. Some jokers will actually take the trouble to mention your subject but the rest of the comment is obviously not genuine. Trash them too.
Just a day ago I received a comment on this post about the whole commenting industry where one can outsource commenting. It’s not hard to tell a commenter who is not the owner of a blog in whose name he or she comments. Those comments are valueless and I trash them too.
Nobody who gets paid to comment for somebody else is going to read the post and share their experiences and thoughts. They will most likely leave a lip service comment full of grammatical and spelling errors.
To people who outsource comments I say: what a waste. There’s a lot of room in the trash for useless garbage like that.
Jane, I don’t recommend that you ask people in your comments on other blogs to go and comment on yours. That is spam too.
If your comment is really good, people will want to check out your blog without being asked. If it’s not and the main part of your comment is asking people to visit and comment on your blog it won’t happen. And most people won’t approve a comment like that anyway.
May 9th, 2011 at 12:35 pm
I agree. Anything too over the top is always spam. When you’re first starting out it’s not always so obvious. After you’ve been blogging awhile though you definitely learn to notice the signs quickly. Good luck Jane. I’m sure you’ll find a genuine following soon 🙂

People who use robots or automated software to post comments are spamming idiots. I don’t care about their comments and how easy it is for them. They are spamming idiots and that’s what they’ll be until they come to their senses and start using their mind properly.
That’s probably too much to ask from them though, I realize that.

Ya I definitely agree with your article. I used to post mindless trash on articles that I didn’t even read just for the links. Now, I try to provide quality responses to other people’s posts so that others won’t just read over my comments as spam.
Nice man and I think we can all generate traffic from blog commenting as long as we don’t spam am I right
When i started my own blogs years ago I’d have been happy to get some spam! That would have at least been a pleasant change from zero comments and minimal page views 🙁 . I soon gave up blogging as i felt I was blogging to nobody but myself. I guess spam can be a measure of how successful a blog can be to a certain extent.
forum spamming winds me up the most i guess as I partake in a number of forums… especialy those who badly paraphrase an earlier post… GRRRR!
Thanks for the great article. I’m kinda new to blogging. I recently just started my first blog. And i have been adding more material. It seems like the more posts i put up the more comments i got. I was excited at first, until alot of it started looking like spam. I was kinda dissapointed. I’m glad i have a filter and they don’t go on my post automatically. I had a feeling people were doing this to try to get backlinks or traffic. So i looked into it and your post confirmed my suspicions. Great post.
Are you posting this to get more comments? 🙂 I’m just kidding. You have a lot of visitors anyway. To be honest I can’t really easily recognize spam comments especially if they pass through Akismet. Thanks for the exposure Vance 🙂
The thing I hate the most about the spam comments is that they ruined a simple praise for everyone!
For example, I read a blog post and I really like it. But the blog post has said it all and I have nothing to add. I’d like to make that person know how much I like it, but if I post something like that I will be suspected to be a spammer.
Don’t you find that annoying? I blame the spammers for ruin common decency for us.
September 22nd, 2011 at 12:30 pm
I hate spam for many reasons. As far as a simple praise, that hardly contributes anything to the conversation. I don’t think that any blog post says it all. There is always some angle or opinion that can be added.
One liner comments are only acceptable on occasion from people known to the blogger, especially to end a several comments long conversation between them and the blogger.
It’s funny, because with all the time people spend on generating spam comments or finding ways to leave them, they could easily be using that same amount of time to actually READ blogs and leave meaningful, valuable comments. That way, everyone wins! I don’t understand why more people don’t do this. Oh well, can’t have it all, right?
September 22nd, 2011 at 7:34 pm
People who do this are not only lazy but lack intelligence.
It is just disgusting to see a lot of spam commenters dancing their way around your posts. I usually advice bloggers to moderate all first posts made by a reader and then make it compulsory that anyone who wishes to comment must have at least one moderated comment.
I’ve only got 1 spam comment from Pakistan about Pakistan jobs and other “BS” and 0 actual comments. About a few months ago I started a blog to share recipes that I have created and tested. I believe that the reason I don’t get any in put from viewers because I have a hard time come up anything worth reading or I because I am very new at blogging.
Outstanding blog, I have been viewing blogs for some time now and this one stand out because the writer of the contents has a unique style and the posts contains knowledge different from others. This definitely helps me on my research on internet marketing. I also bookmarked it.
April 20th, 2012 at 4:55 pm
Thanks for the comment. It’s very nice if you really mean it. Some spam comments can sound like yours. I’ll find out soon enough I guess. If you mean it keep on reading my blog and commenting. If this is going to turn out to be the only comment of yours then I may come back and erase it. In case you are coming back here to comment, I’d appreciate it very much if you stick to the subject of the post.
Nowaday’s if your blog is not protected you’ll receive hundreds of comments from spam bot. It is really important to know how to protect your blogs from these attacks. Great post.
Blog commenting is all about sharing ideas, telling your views about what you think abut them or there post. and yes of course a wast amount of traffic can also be generated through it. without spamming.
Currently, I’m now finding little Spam commenting but that’s due mainly to CommentLuv Premium’s builtin anti-Spam features. If you don’t have this plugin and you’re getting Spammed, this might be an answer.
The Spam I am getting is certainly human generated. There’s another good plugin called Comment Probation which allows to not give a suspect comment proper approval and any next comment from them is held in moderation. I’ve caught a few that way as well.
But it certainly is tiresome and you do have to wonder why they spend their time posting garbage. Maybe too much time on their hands 🙂
Martin Cooney @ Dating Advice´s last blog post ..You Really Should Do A Guest Post For Us
I agree that spammers THINK they are smarter than the rest of us. There have been a lot of advancements in stopping automated spam comments, so now a lot of spammers have moved toward manual spamming with things like, “Great post. I really appreciate you writing this.” Unfortunately, I still see a lot of these types of posts get approved.
Oh, and I had to laugh when I saw your response in a comment above that said, “I don’t think that Horny Goat Weed is your name. If it is please confirm it.” My wife and I are expecting our first child in February 2013 so I’m going to add that to the list of names and see what she says. 🙂
You’re a better man than I. I don’t think I’d approve any comment where people didn’t use a real name, even if the comment is on topic. I don’t know why people don’t use their name, especially on sites like this where you can still get the Keyword luv.

Commenting on blogs means sharing ideas, interacting with the blog author and or other users who placed previous comments and not solely for flashing your website for all of them to see.
Nowadays, it is not all about me, me, me, but how we can help each other in whatever form (post informative and entertaining blog posts, share videos that we like from a blogger who featured these on one of his blogs etc.) Sadly, until now, a lot of bloggers haven’t learned this simple lesson.
