Zombie comments... Waking the dead on ActiveRain.

Zombie walk in Spain

Zombie comments...  Waking the dead on ActiveRain.  Stirring up conversations with members who are inactive. Stirring up good, old conversations.

"Feel free to visit me back at my __________ real estate blog and leave me a comment to let me know you stopped by." is part of the comment. 

Or

Trying to get someone to your blog? 

Or

For the points?  

Or

Spam?  Trying to use your comment to promote yourself and your business?

Comment Spam

This mornning I had notices of comment spam that had been left on my post overnight. The nonsense with a link comments. You are seeing a bunch of those too aren't you?   I had a couple this morning.  I used the Report a Concern button:


  Different people should dispute a lot about your supreme release. I guess that, the professional mobile ringtones corporation must confer with you to perform the perfect quality hot ringtones blog article.

Zombie Comments

This morning I also had notices of three comments from a member on old, old posts.  I get a notice on these posts because I had Zombie Apocalypse signcommented on them long, long ago...

Dead posts? 

Dead members?  Not physically dead but inactive.  Or not as active as they once were.  

What's the point of the comments? In each of the three there was a link to ______ real estate (his ActiveRain  blog.)  I removed the link  and the city from the comments here.  I used _______ in place of the city.

Zombie comments trying to get conversations started with inactive members?

"Now that localism is changed, this blog post might get a few more visitors.  It came up on a search that I just did.  Maybe you will get a few more comments on it.   Feel free to visit me back at my __________ real estate blog and leave me a comment to let me know you stopped by."

On a public post written by Roxanne and Shannon Moore in 2007

" Have not seen any new posts from you in a while. Feel free to visit me back at my _________ real estate blog and leave me a comment to let me know you stopped by."

On a Members Only post written by the Codgers in 2007:

"Have not seen any new posts from you in a while then up popped one in July. Feel free to visit me back at my ___________ real estate blog and leave me a comment to let me know you stopped by"

Good comments?  Do you think it will work?

Maureen - To me these types of comments are a) spam, b) point whoring, and c) a lame and pathetic attempt to get noticed on Google.

Not that I have any thoughts on THAT one way or the other.  :)

Maureen - I totally don't understand how some people can spend time on something as unproductive as spamming other people's blogs or trying to scam the system.
