THE number of blogs and websites are increasing day by day and every webmaster is fighting for exposure. Many of them adopt black hat SEO tricks and other cheats to gain more traffic. One of the most popular ways to gain backlink was to comment on other sites. But nowadays with advanced commenting platforms such as Disqus, spam comments are automatically identified and removed.
