It posted about 3,000 blog comments for me. And then, to my horror, I found that GOOGLE HAD BANNED MY SITE!
Apparently Google no longer condones automated comment posting on blogs that have enabled it.
So STAY AWAY FROM <blog submission software> unless you want to suffer the same fate I did!
PS: <snip> gave me excellent support while I was a user. But when I asked her for a refund, she simply did not reply. I finally asked Clickbank for the refund, which they they gave in 24 hours.

FWIW, blog comments do work. Build yourself a page that people will want to comment about, and let the links come naturally. (I make about $60 a month from two highly forumed and blogged pages.)
That is definitely misleading as anyone with any experience knows that is simply not true. In that respect, the software is not performing as advertised.
The seller site said that Google knew all about <snip> and tolerated it because
(1) Blog owners on blog.com could always block automated comment posting by selecting an option in the settings
(2) If automated commenting was not thus blocked, it meant the blog owner permitted them
I bought this logic, but unfortunately Google no longer does!

If you are saying you got banned because you were using blog submission software, that would mean competitors could effectively wipe your site out by doing the same thing.
I don't buy it. I would imagine that if you were willing to use blog submission software to SPAM, then you were probably utilizing other black hat techniques which got you banned.
And yes, it IS possible for a competitor to spam blogs with a link back to your site, and in that way get you banned... this has actually started happening (there are reports of it on the web, I read one last week, but don't have the link).
Maybe that's why Google no longer tolerates automated blog commenting.
in researching what Google ( and most likely other search engines ) say, logarithmic growth of links is very dangerous over a short period of time.
if I were to do it, I would plan 180 to 360 days of linking. week 1 to 3 would create 1 or 2 links per day, then wait until the Google dance. after that every few weeks increase the submission rate to new blogs by 2 or 3. By the time week 40 is around, you are creating 20 to 40 new links per day.
Patronising comments like that just shows a lack of intelligence and decency.
People learn, people make mistakes.
There was no malice of intent in what the guy did, just lack of knowledge.
I suppose you were born perfect and continued that way ever since?
I am victim of such blog posting softwares. People like you keep posting comments on my blog thru softwares, attaching link to your site in the hyperlink.
Hurry! Hats off to Google!
ah...! Now I am feeling much better :)
