Don’t Just Sit There, Make More!!
I just had a most disturbing Skype conversation with Darren about an awful new service called Buy Blog Comments (buyblogcomments.com) offered by a person calling himself Jon Waraas (Jonwaraas.com).
Yes, folks, it’s true!!! For as little as $19.99 you, too, can be a spammer to targeted blogs!!!
Buy Blog Comments.com offers
100 Blog Comments Only $19.99!
500 Blog Comments Only $99.99!
1000 Blog Comments Only $199.99!
Finally you can purchase quality blog comments without the stress of finding someone to write the comments, or buying some high priced automated program. We specialize in selling blog comments for blackhatters who are looking for good quality backlinks. We have three different types of packages, you can either buy 100 blog comments, 500 blog comments, or 1000 blog comments at a time. . . .
This concept isn’t new to us. We’ve run into astrospammers around Net Neutrality, but it’s never been advertised quite such a in-your-face, out-in-the-open, damn-the-ethics-and-the good-guys manner.
We talked about the ethics of paid commenting last October in Bloggy Question 26, Do You Wish to Comment? and we sure did.
Who Is This Guy?
As Sundance would have said to Butch Cassidy . . . “Who is this guy?” Just go to Google. He pretty much tells you himself.
Sept. 2006 . . . In an interview 10 months ago, at basementguru, Jon Waraas reported his age as 19 and said . . .
I believe in making a website for the user, not the bot. What SEO is is tweaking the bot into giving you a better ranking. I donâ€™t believe in doing that. Make a high quality website with lots of original content and the bots will follow.
That was then.
Not sure of the date . . . On ReviewME, his profile says he’s an “unethical swearing marketeer.” US$500 per review.
Jan. 2007 . . . He joined 7 months ago. Isn’t he a lovely girl?
Last night . . . at jonwaraas.com/seo-service-launches/
Well im off to bed, I cant wait to wake up and see all the hait mail/comments (exaggeration)
This morning . . . at Buy Blog Comments. com . . .
We currently have 6 people working with me (Jon waraas) that speak english really well. We dont use people who cant even speak english. It is important to have well written blog comments so that they wont get deleted by the blogger.
What Can We Do?
Darren has a fine discussion and is asking the legal question . . .
Iâ€™d like to hear from those with a legal background comment on the legality of such a business. I know that of late spammers have been getting taken to court for sending unsolicited emails – Iâ€™d be interested to know what the legal standing would be of a company who so openly offers to leave spam comments on someone elseâ€™s web property.
I’d like to know too.
Even more . . . What can we do?
Some lines we can’t let bad guys cross.
One is the threshold to our house.
We can’t let folks drop trash in our kitchen
to make their property have more value.
We can’t rely on other folks to clean up
stuff bad guys bring across our doorways.
End of story.
They’re OUR blogs those comments will be landing on.
Let Mr. Waraass.com know.
