There are various websites which offers you the authority to comment in its videos or songs or articles or any other thing. Am sure of the fact that you have come across several sites which give this right to the visitors but some of the comments are real gibberish and full of abuses. These things are mainly done by the webmasters who has got a website based on the same subject. His main aim is to misuse the comments box of that website to portray a bad image of his competitor. He also does paste links of his website in those comment boxes which makes him think that it will boost his website’s ranking in the search engine indexes.
Why this is a bad practice
If you are doing this or even thinking to start doing this then I would suggest do not. This is a very dangerous and risky way of getting your website indexed. You should never do anything to stain the hard work done by the developers to prepare a useful website. If you do so it will degrade the quality of the web and the website.
How to tackle it
In order to tackle this dreadful practice of web designers to tarnish the image of a good quality website and improve his website’s performance, search engine’s has thought of means to handle it. Different search engines across the world including Google are incorporating the feature in their algorithm that will back track these links to the website. In that way it will get to know about which websites are using this dubious method to smear the names of other website(s) and will also make them pay for their doing. So it is much better not to waste your time, energy and effort in this bad way if you are doing this instead you can think of other good ways which will improve the quality of your website.
How to promote your website in a better way

Make a user friendly site in which your visitors will get whatever they are searching for in it. Perform these things and your website surely will gain popularity. There are other aspects which will also provide your website with high rankings in the indexes. And all these can be obtained without the need of comment spamming.
