Remember my blog post about the Backlinkedge scam? If you don’t want to read the whole thing again, here a short summary:
Customer subscribes to a service called backlinkedge for $9.99 $19.99 per month. Customer expects to get backlinks that are relevant to his/ her niche, from authority sites and manually created.
The owner of backlinkedge then uses two automated programs that search for blogs on the internet and submits spam comments to each of them, with the customers url, to generate backlinks.
Backlinkedge is not only spamming bloggers with comments, it also scams ’subscribers’ for their money as it is an absolutely worthless service that easily damages your site’s reputation, as it leaves the spam comments in your name and with your url!
So, that was the original Backlinkedge story, now imagine my surprise as I found today this comment on the very same post:
“I found your blog on google and read a few of your other posts. I just added you to my Google News Reader. Keep up the good work. Look forward to reading more from you in the future.”
Info about person that submitted comment reads:
jack parler from backlinkedge.com/ email address: firstname.lastname@example.org ip: 22.214.171.124
Now tell me, how stupid can a single spammer be, to leave a spam comment on the blog post that exposes his spam? I guess he just typed in “backlinkedge” as a keyword, set his spam program to auto and got himself a coffee, rofl. Seems the whole thing backfired a bit, please feel free to add his ip address and email to your blacklists!
