All internet marketers know that the border between White Hat and Black Hat can be very thin, and that there are many shades of Grey. A lot of these things can lead you to spots where you really don’t want to go. For example getting banned from Google Adwords, Ebay Partner Network or Facebook.
One of the things that can happen to you is appearing on email providers blacklists or Akismet blacklist. This is the problem I’ve been facing a few weeks ago. A friend of mine informed me that all my comments on his blog were being filtered by Akismet.
After doing a few tests on some of my own blogs, it appeared that the situation was the same everywhere.
You don’t have many resources if you want to get off Akismet’s Blacklist. After doing some research online, it appears that the only solution available is to contact Akismet.
Once you’ll have submitted your informations to Akismet there is nothing more to do but waiting until you hear from them. Hopefully they will get you off their blacklist. Until then go easy on commenting on other people’s blogs!
