Eddiecoms #5: “its really remarkable in support of me”

Eddiecoms #5: “its really remarkable in support of me”

This is one in a series of posts about what I call “Eddiecoms”. You can see more detail about what these are in earlier posts on the topic, but it boils down to this. These are ads intended to promote something, disguised (often not very well) as comments on something I’ve posted. I test a comment in a couple of ways before deciding it is an Eddiecom, including doing a Google search for the same wording. When I do use Google, I’ll sometimes find hundreds of instances of the same comment on different blogs, ones which are often unrelated in topic.

“It’s awesome in favor of me to have a web site, which is good in support of my know-how. thanks admin”

That one had 139,000 Google results (of course, some will be false positives).

“artikelnya sangat informatif sekali..terimaksih banyak”

Interestingly, thanks to Google translate, I know this is Indonesian…and that it apparently has a  misspelling! The corrected version translates to “very informative article .. thanks so much”. Yes, it also failed the Google test. That same day, I got five comments in Indonesian…on five different posts. A couple of them duplicated each other.

“An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a co-worker who has been conducting a little homework on this. And he actually ordered me breakfast simply because I found it for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending some time to discuss this subject here on your web page.”

356,000 Google results on that one…

“It’s not torture for most of these conserva-queens. The closeted lifestyle is a fetish. Anonymous hookups, the fear of getting caught, public sex with complete strangers — it all adds to the thrill.”

I only found that one on a couple of other blogs (word for word). Another interesting thing, though, is that the poster’s name included the word “marketing”, so they aren’t hiding their intentions very well. 🙂

“We absolutely love your blog and find most of your post’s to be precisely what I’m looking for.Would you offer guest writers to write content available for you?I wouldn’t mind producing a post or elaborating on some of the subjects you write about here. Again, awesome website!”

“Good day! I just noticed your web site: Understanding Whispersync � I Love My Kindle when I was searching delicious.com. It looks as though someone enjoyed your website so much they decided to bookmark it. I’ll certainly be coming back here more often.”

This one took a little more effort, since it includes the actual name of the post…but again, 126,000 Google results.

“I really like what you guys are up too. This type of clever work and reporting!
Keep up the terrific works guys I’ve incorporated you guys to our blogroll.”

Over five million results on this one!

“What’s up colleagues, how is everything, and what you wish for to say concerning this paragraph, in my view its really remarkable in support of me.”

This one had actually had some word variation in other postings, although it was clearly the same (they all started with the six words). Again, that’s getting cleverer.

“A person essentially assist to make significantly articles I’d state. This is the very first time I frequented your web page and up to now? I surprised with the research you made to create this particular post amazing. Excellent task!”

“Excellent blog here! Also your site loads up fast! What host are you using?
Can I get your affiliate link to your host? I wish my
web site loaded up as fast as yours lol”

This one almost reads as though it is real, although I had over 7 million Google results, and it was posted on an older post (which is one of the red flags).

“I think that everything wrote was very reasonable.
But, think about this, suppose you added a little content?
I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your blog, however what if you added a post title that grabbed people’s
attention? I mean Flash! Early preview software 3.
1�page numbers! � I Love My Kindle is a little vanilla. You might glance at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they write post titles to get people interested. You might add a video or a related pic or two to grab readers excited about what you’ve written.
In my opinion, it might bring your posts a little livelier”

Again, this one incorporates the title of the post…a new trend, perhaps?

“Hi i am kavin, its my first occasion to commenting anyplace, when i read this piece
of writing i thought i could also create comment
due to this brilliant article.”

Adding a name gives it a nice touch of credibility…even if that credibility is then demolished with a simple Google search. 😉

“I am regular visitor, how are you everybody? This piece of writing posted at this website is truly nice.”

Seems simple, but fails more than one test.

Cons. Those pain killers and medications hide the problem without dealing with the true cause.

This one is truly bizarre. I think it might have just picked up some random English phrases from websites to string this together.

“I feel this is one of the most significant information for me.
And i am satisfied reading your article. However want to observation on few common issues, The site style is great, the articles is truly great : D.
Excellent task, cheers”
