Mass link spamming no longer a good option?

    I was all excited when I wrote my link spammer back in July and started spamming thousands of blogs and forums every day, but I think it backfired as those sites got banned a lot quicker than normal. Has anyone had any success targeting thousands of links? I'm thinking I need to be more selective in the sites I spam..possibly a PR filter.

    Maybe you got banned because people reported you for spamming. Just a thought.

    You can make thousands a week link spamming sites on parasite hosts. Not only is your statement wrong, it is still useful today depending on what your doing.

    Link spamming will never / and should not be thought of as a long term marketing strategy. You don't want to link spam a domain on one of your servers that you are paying for.

    Link spamming is still VERY effective for MSN and yahoo, and if you can get a parasite host on a site with 'authority', it is also still effective on google for about 2 weeks at the most.

    I was saying that spamming in general is bad.
    Most webmasters get spammed daily (forum spamming, blog spamming, email spamming, whatever...) by people like yourself.
    So has it ever been good?

    NO WAY!!

    People that spam make me sick. Don't you realize that by doing so you are scum? How about coming up with a real marketing stratgey instead of being a parasite.

    I agree except the "scum" sentence. It is a little bit much for me.

    It is interesting to see someone opening a thread and saying, "hey i am doing spam.. What is the problem?" :) The problem is spamming..

    Scum is an understatement!

    Hell, even physically visiting a site and registering just to post a link is one thing, but to create and use an active link spamming software!!

    GTH!

    2 words of wishful advice: dont spam

    There is the ethical blackhat, and there is the ugly blackhat. Guess where spamming falls under?
