The Free Blog Commenting Guide v3 by AdenShimomura


									     The Free Blog Commenting Guide v3.0
This guide is not meant to be an all singing all dancing bible for blog commenting, but it will help you learn
some of the basics of blog commenting and show you how you can make the most out of The Free Blog

The Free Blog Commenter is a free(surprisingly) tool that takes advantage of the functionality of the .NET
framework version 3.5. You will need the latest .NET framework to use the tool at all, you can download it
directly from Microsoft here.

TFBC will work on windows Vista or XP and should work just as well, if not much better, on a multi
processor 64bit system.

Oh yeah don’t forget the internet connection 

Getting Started
When you first open TFBC you will see the screen below:

You may want to have a look around before searching for any blogs or leaving any comments. I will lead
you through some of these features and try to explain away any potential questions for you.
Setting up your main settings
                                          On the main tool page you will see 4 checkboxes, these are the
                                          platforms that you wish to search on. It is recommended that you use
                                          all 4 platforms that are supported as this will return the most blogs
available. The great thing is these are all dofollow by default so you should get some real good link love
from all of these options.

                                          Before you start you will want to go and setup a few things first, so
                                          go to the tabs on the right hand side and click on the Settings tab
                                          to open up this tab.

                                          The Results per keyword option is the setting to determine how
                                          many results per keyword per platform. If you set this to 100 it
                                          could actually return 400 per keyword if you have all platform
                                          options checked.

The Proxy options are if you wish to keep your true identity a secret to the search engines and the blogs that
you are commenting on. If you do know what a proxy is and how to use it you will need to format the proxy
in the usual fashion of “Proxy IP:Port”, e.g. Also you must click the Use checkbox at
its side to enable the proxy option.

User Agent is what the tool leaves as its user, or browser. If you wish to change this you can change it to
whatever you like, I would suggest using a “regular” browser user agent, samples of these can be found
online in numerous places.

The Option in Own Browser option is for if you want to open the blog pages in your default web browser as
opposed to opening the webpage in TFBC.

Setting the region will give you more regional specific blog pages and is a great way of getting more link
love and regional specific traffic to your website.

Saving and Loading
                                            The Save / Load tab holds all of the buttons for saving and
                                            loading of results and settings. If you are running TFBC for the
                                            first time and you have just setup your settings you will want to
                                            save your settings before you go any further.

                                            To save your settings simply click on the Save Settings button to
                                            be taken to a familiar windows save file dialogue. You can load a
                                            settings file in a similar way by clicking on the Load Settings

Conversely once you have begun to use the tool you will want to save your profile of results and
commenting profiles by clicking the Save Profile button and loading by clicking on the Load Profile button.

A much anticipated version of the tool is the Export to .txt function and is for exporting just the search
results into a .txt file. This option will print each blog URL to its own line.
Setting up your profile (NOW PAY ATTENTION)
                                   This is a very important section of this guide and it really is a bad
                                   idea to skip over it as you will miss out on all the lovely
                                   randomness of profiles.

                                          For starters, each input has the ability to act as more than one input
                                          providing the functionality to rotate through any number of
                                          possible inputs. For example if you wanted to rotate through three
                                          different Name possibilities giving your website links with
differing anchor text you would form it this way:
iPhone*iPhones*Apple iPhones

Using the above string, of words separated with an asterisk (the lil floating star *), will result in 1/3rd of all
comments having the name iPhone, 1/3rd will have iPhones and the rest will have the name Apple iPhones.
You will want to rotate through different Names as this will be the anchor text of the backlinks that you are
leaving. You can use the * to rotate through numerous Names, Emails, URLs and Comments.

Searching for your blogs
                                                     Bet you can’t guess how to search for blogs…. 

Ok well basically you just input your keyword into the box that has the word “keyword” in it in the picture
above. Then to actually search for the blogs click on the “Go get em !” button. After a very short while
(depending on system, connection and if you are using proxies) you will notice the progress bar to be
moving and the blogs will begin to appear in the results list pane (see below for details on this).

To search for more than one keyword at a time simply separate out your keywords with a comma, e.g.

Results Interpretation

When you have finished a search you will see a list of results appear in the list at the bottom half of the main
application page. The first column titled search shows the keyword that is used to return that blog page, the
second is the PR. When you first get your results the PR will be listed as a question mark, this is just
temporary until you manually click the “Scan PR” button, there will be more on this later.

The third column shows if a page has been visited, default value is N for no and signifies that the page has
not been visited, when you have visited the page it will change to a Y for yes it has been visited. The 4th
column, platform, shows what platform of blog comment plugin is on that blog page. The last column, URL
is the actual URL of the blog page that has your keyword on it.

Clicking on any column will sort the list by that column, if you click the same column again it will still sort
by this column but instead of being in ascending order it will be descending, or vice versa.

If you want to visit a blog page (which you obviously will do) simply click on any part of that result and,
depending on your settings option choices, the blog page will be opened In either the application or your
browser of choice.
Using the browser controls
                   The image to the left depicts the basic browser controls available. The button labelled
                   “Show Browser” when clicked will show the browser component of TFBC, the browser
                   is overlaid the results list and as such when the browser is shown the button changes to
                   a “Show Results List” button which does the opposite.

                      If, when you have visited a blog, your profile is not entered into the comment form you
can click on the “Enter Profile” button to manually force it through, however it should be noted that the
profile will only be entered into the form after the page has been fully loaded, so it is ideal to check the label
above the progress bar and make sure that it says “Done” before impatiently hitting the button to force a
profile to be filled.

The arrows are for visiting the next blog in the results list of the previous blog. The “<<<” arrows will take
you to the previous blog post and the “>>>” button will take you to the next blog post.

When the browser window is visible it acts just like any other browser would, in fact it is run from the
default web browser so it should be pretty familiar to you.

Miscellaneous Controls
               This is the Scan PR button, it will scroll through the list and check the PR of every page in
               your list. Please bear in mind that if you are scanning 1,000s of pages in one fell swoop you
               will not have a great deal of success. Google will limit your calls and stop returning results
after a short while, also google will occasionally return a -1 as the pagerank, this is an issue with some of
google’s datacentres.

               This is the Clear button, if you check the tick box and click the button it will clear the whole
               list of results that you have up at that time, it will not remove any results from any save files.
               Also if the button is accidentally hit without the checkbox being checked it will not have any

Well I hope that you have found this guide useful and have a good time using the tool. If you like the tool
and you have a blog or website relating to SEO I would appreciate a quick article of my tool as I have put a
lot of time and effort into it.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I wish you the best of luck in your blog commenting endeavours.
All of my tools will be released at the website below before anywhere else so go to them and check them
out from time to time to be kept ahead of the fold.
