What can you say about buying and selling blog comments? Here’s a new online service to ponder upon.
BuyBlogComments.com is a startup that offers unautomated, human-made blog comments aimed for, as said on their site, “blackhatters who are looking for good quality backlinks”. (IMO, something’s seriously wrong about having the word “blackhat” and “good quality backlinks” in one sentence.)
This one-of-a-kind startup offers three packages, starting at $20 which gives you 100 blog comments, $100 for 500 comments, and $200 for 1000 comments. The company claims to have a group of trained professionals who do the commenting themselves, making sure that the comments are related to the blog post they comment on so that they “look completely like legit comments.”
While BuyBlogComments claims they’re NOT spam, Darren Rowse, the Problogger himself, thinks that the service is “sick” and “disturbing”. I think so, too. I’m very much aware that there are underground companies doing spam, but to go out in the open, offer your spamming service, and make it “look legit” is something else. I think it’s just odd to be selling a service aimed at blackhatters so that their sites would “rank better in the SERPs” when we all know well that black hat is the bane of every search engine’s existence.
