Copied comment with a URL backlink
Last week, Edwin (EdwinBernard) and Melissa (MRRSP) expressed their frustrations over the comments they received from fellow members of WA. I suggested that if they’re not happy with the comments they’re getting, they can temporarily stop using these features until this issue gets resolved like I have and just focus on good keywords in their articles in order to drive traffic, which will eventually result in organic comments.
Well, last night, I received a notification that there is a comment awaiting moderation for my post “How Can I Become Wealthy.” Looking at the commenter’s email address, I believe it was taken (in part) from one of the articles on his website. He even included the URL link.
The URL link included at the end of the comment:
<a href="https://www.reviewengin.com/how-media-buying-will-help-you-to-make-moneyonline/" rel="nofollow ugc"> https://www.reviewengin.com/how-media-buying-will-help-you-t...
I tried to copy-paste the comment in its entirely for all of you to see but was restricted because the plagiarism checker sensed that it was copied from another website and won't accept it. It says, "Your blog content needs to be unique, original, and not copied from anywhere online. We found that your blog content is already published on other website."
My point is this: even comments coming from outside WA can be frustrating too. This is not the first time I received comments like this. Is this a spam? I guess so. Makes me wonder why and how our websites attract them.
Your thoughts on this?
