Recently I've noticed two types of commenters that are plaguing my blog and I'm sure countless others. The first is the obvious, "compliment" followed by a large paragraphic of web links to porn, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.
The second irritate me more.
They leave a generic complimentary comment on an article then have a link to what they are selling at their site. Sometimes it is related to my discussion, but I don't appreciate the bold sales hook. They always comment under the "anonymous" ID. Maybe they just don't know any better, but what I'm doing here at the Brand Corral is trying to provide valuable content to my subscribers and readers.
If you want to promote your site, do it honestly. Identify yourself, and join in the discussion and give valuable input. My readers (and myself) will follow your link back to your sites.
If you don't like that idea, be assured that your "tactic" will be deleted shortly after you post it. To my readers: be assured that if you see the comment, " deleted by author" or something close, these types of comments are what is being censored. I do not delete opposing points of view - those I enjoy :)
