If you have a website that allows comments, especially a WordPress site, you are probably familiar with spam blog comments being submitted to your posts. You’ve probably seen spam comments such as:
How Can I Use Spam Comments to Build My Own Auto Approve Blog Comment Links as Tier 2 or 3 Links?
Use the comment text as a footprint in Scrapebox!
If you are reading this, then I assume you have a copy of Scrapebox and are fairly familiar with how Scrapebox works so I won’t go into too much details about how to use it. I’ll just give the steps you should do to get hundreds of instant auto-approve blog comment links.
And keep in mind, I am highly NOT recommending doing this tactic for your “money” or main website. Don’t send these links to your client’s website, either. It’s not 2008 anymore.
These backlinks get lumped into pages with Cialis, Viagra, pay day loans, casino, porn, and any other spammy category links you can think of because these URLs have been hit pretty hard with link spam.
These links will most likely be all nofollow since they are just blog comments. So, this Scrapebox tutorial is just for the sake of building a lot of quick links easily.
And I like to do this to 2.0 linking websites like example.weebly or keyword.wordpress. I wouldn’t want to secure a good guest post backlink, then spam that article with a lot of low quality links.
The owner of that site probably wouldn’t be too happy when checking their backlink profile in a couple months and probably wouldn’t accept more guest posts from you.
You Will Need Proxies
Just make sure you use proxies.
Take a sentence or so from your spam blog comment and put it in quotes into Scrapebox’s custom footprint field. The idea is that if the comment is pending in your dashboard, it must have been auto-approved on other websites.
Use Scrapebox to find these AA opportunities.
Then start harvesting. If at first you don’t get a lot of results, don’t worry. You will uncover other comment spam footprints as you do this more.
For this particular search from the blog comment spam (“This post is on 12 spot in google’s search results, if you”), I only returned 106 results.
Whatever results you get, I would recommend filtering the results. Remove / Filter > Remove Duplicate URL’s.
Now let’s go to Scrapebox’s fast poster. You will need to properly fill in the data lists fields.
I like to use the name and email generator. Go to Tools > Name and Email Generator. If you are doing this method, you probably already know the name field is the anchor text of the backlink.
You can do whatever you want for anchor text, but I like to generate first names only in Scrapebox, then go to textmechanic.com/text-tools/basic-text-tools/add-prefixsuffix-into-line and copy & paste that list of first names in the top field and use the main keyword as the last name when you add a suffix in Text Mechanic.
If you don’t know how to use the tool, you can figure it out. A little advice:
Again, there’s a million articles and opinions about what to use for anchor text. I’ll leave that up to you.
So my way looks something like this in Scrapebox:
Each time you put info into the list editor, make sure you click the link above it, “Click here to save the text back to the ScrapeBox…” so it actually fills it in.
Import the generated emails into the data lists.
Then add your list editor URL into the field. You can use multiple URLs, but I like to target one at a time. In this example, I will use https://example.wordpress.com.
Add a comment or more into the comment list editor. Again, you should know how to do this if you are familiar with Scrapebox. Something generic would work like:
Then right-click on the URLs harvested box and copy all URLs to clipboard. Then on the last data lists field, paste and save them into the list editor.
Then make sure the fast poster bullet is checked, and Test Comments / Messages to make sure it all looks good with your link and comment.
Then Start Poster and click the Start button. You should get some “success” posts.
Close that window when finished. Then click the check links button so we can see how many links were actually posted.
Within the link checker, when finished, export links found. You should have a few links found. Now go to a URL and make sure the link is there.
Now Use Other Recently Published Comments for Your New Footprint in Scrapebox
Look above my comment link. That comment looks generic enough to use as a footprint.. “I love looking through an article that will make people think. Also, many thanks”
Then just rinse and repeat the process to find more and more blog comment opportunities and you can build hundreds of links in a short period of time.
Keep using previously published blog comment links as footprints to find more and more opportunities in Scrapebox to build out your tier 2 and tier 3 backlinks.
