I agree with Hooperman, you made a content void statement, then tried to add content after the fact.
Did you know that you get negative points for spamming?
Yeah it's true, googlebot not only judges the sites it's crawling, but it also checks crawls the links it finds on those sites, if you're dropping links indiscriminately (i.e. your site's content is non-related to the sites you drop links on) you're shooting yourself in the foot as far as google is concerned. :eye:
Dropping a link and not leaving a relative comment is an utter waste of your time and a waste of time for the webmasters of the sites you're spamming, because they're going to delete your link.
If you were paying attention to how everyone else is replying to this thread you would see a definite trend towards deleting anything that so much as mildly resembles spam.
