Is CommentLuv Bad For SEO

I have noticed of late that a few bloggers have removed CommentLuv from their blogs. That’s fine except that it irks me a teensy weeny little bit when they do so for the wrong reasons. Especially when they post about it on their blog spreading the wrong information about a great plugin. I’ve read several posts that say that CommentLuv is bad for SEO! You don’t believe me, check out this post titled Goodbye CommentLiuv where the 5th point definitely states CommentLuv is bad for SEO. He’s not the only one that states this either.

Spam Alert! How Many Emails Does It Take?

The other day I happened upon an interesting post written by Dan Sumner titled 8 Product Promotion Tips You Won't Want To Miss. As I am want to do with interesting posts I left a comment, one that disagreed with one of the points that Dan made in his post.

Where Has All The Spam Gone?

Spam is a blight on blogs. I like to think of spammers as vultures or seagulls hovering above the blogs looking for a tasty morsel that they can descend on and devour. In our case those tasty morsels are dofollow blogs as well as those using CommentLuv and KeyWordLuv. If you're one of those bloggers who are being inundated with spam you should read on because you're going to find this post really interesting. It's because spam has always been a pain is the ass that I'm always on the lookout to find stuff that will help me to control it. Heck, you ask almost any blogger and they'll tell you how monitoring and deleting spam will take up a good portion of their blogging time. In Search Of The Spam Busters Akismet would have to be the first ever plugin I used to combat spamming and it is so good I have it in my spam busting arsenal. Unfortunately as good as it is, it's not quite enough. That's when I installed GASP, to put a stop to all the Robot Spam. And yet it still wasn't enough and it's one of the reasons I put my hand into my cyberspace pocket, i.e. PayPal to purchase CommentLuv Premium which had an updated, more powerful version of GASP installed Enter ComentLuv Premium Spam Buster It's because spammers are always on the lookout to circumvent whatever plugin you're using that we have to thank people like Andy who are keeping track of their…
