You can use a service called CommentHunt to buy blog comments, it’s rather cheap, you only pay $19.99 for 100 comments on quality blogs, or $44.99 for 250 comments and $83.99 for 500 comments.
I am not sure how good the comments that you pay for really are, but they say that
CommentHunt.com has hired a group of experts who efficiently explore a list of blogs from a database program that we have developed for picking out relevant blogs in your niche. Further process involves reading through blog posts and leaving a logical comment that is valid for the blog post they read before. By doing this, their comments are always highly relevant and they won’t get deleted by the blogger/moderator. Therefore your backlink is found permanently there on the targeted blog and provides you more authority and influence in the search engine rankings.
At CommentHunt, We have a team experts who are highly trained in copywriting and effective communication. As a result, they obviously are fluent in spoken English and write blog comments very well. Their comments are always rational and don’t get removed by the blogger or moderator.
I believe that they are experts and that they comments are logical and they might even be perfect, but is this marketing trick really something different than spam?
You are paying a company to leave comments for you, and with a link back to your website. If they use your name, then I would characterize it as illegal, but if they are only using your website address, then it’s probably legal, and according to CommentHunt:
… Buying Blog Comments is 100% ethical and NOT spam! When you buy blog comments from us, we always provide you premium blog comments. Our experts don’t continuously leave silly and spammy stuff like “Good Blog, please visit my site”.. BuyComment.com’s blog comments are always logically relevant with the blog post that we are commenting on. They purely appear like completely natural comments written by someone just reading the blog post. Even you wont be able to distinguish our blog comments separately form others. In spite of this, most of the bloggers/moderators always love free comments to keep their web content fresh and their community alive.
I am not sure if I think it’s 100% ethical, but maybe. It looks like the experts over at CommentHunt will do research, and will read the posts and publish the comments, and they will provide the comments with the link to your website. So, it’s not that they are really telling the world (blogosphere) that you left the comment, they are just providing a link from the post to your website (at least I think that this is what’s happening).
I haven’t talked to anybody that have been using this marketing technique, so I am not sure if it actually works or not. But what I do know, is that leaving good and relevant comments on blogs do help for your traffic, and $19.95 for 100 quality comments, that sounds cheap to me.
What do you think? Should you be using a service like the one from CommentHunt?
