How Blackhat Spammers (and Scrapebox) Can Help You Gain Backlinks

May 27th, 2010 by shawn · 1 Comment

At times this blog has posted some blackhat-oriented tips, and this is one of those times. It’s a basic but effective piece of advice for those who maybe need a boost in their creative thinking – and backlinks. So here’s how you’re going to use the spammers who leave comments on your blog to help you get backlinks.

First, you need to have a blog that gets spammed. Not a hard thing to do, actually: just set up WordPress and post the link to your site on any other website and you’ll start getting spam comments within a day. (At least, that’s how it seems to work.)

Once you start getting spam, open up your copy of Scrapebox. Copy the first sentence of the first spam comment, and paste it into Scrapebox as a custom footprint (in quotes) and use it to scrape results from all the SEs. (You may get a nice list – I just did this with a random spam comment in this site’s logs and got over 600 results.)

Next, clean the list for duplicate URLs. Then, run the blog checker (in Scrapebox under Tools). Throw out all the “bad” ones. I ended up with 473 good ones out of an original list of 692 harvested results, BTW.

The next step is to run the fast commenter and get yourself a bunch of links to your site(s). Run the slow commenter next, then copy all the successful comment URLs to your clipboard, then put ‘em all into Mass Indexer (or just build your own feeds and ping the links) so they get quickly found and indexed (you need these backlinks to be counted as such, after all).

Additional Thoughts on this:

  • I use proxies for every part of the process.
  • I use keywords as my names. The reason for this is because all of these blogs obviously approve spam comments. So it’s probably safe to go ahead and put your keywords right in there.
  • You can use keywords in your comment as well, due to the reason given above.
  • If you want to only get the best links, run the PR checker and throw out everything without PR.

This is one of the easiest tips to implement and very effective, so have at it. If you don’t have Scrapebox in your arsenal (I use this and Market Samurai often), this tip makes it worth getting alone.

    Oh yeah, and one more thing – you should run the list first with ONE url and then check which ones stick.

    (Comments wont nest below this level)
