Comment on Link Bait Examples by SEO Dave.

SEOMoz Link Bait Automating backlinking isn’t generally a good idea, tends to stray into the blackhat SEO arena which is why I don’t use any automated backlink plugins.

I do use the ©Feed Plugin : SEO Version from WordPress SEO Plugins.

This adds links to your content on RSS feeds which tend to be scraped, so when scrapers steal your content they link back to your site.

I use Akismet for comment SPAM with comment moderation of new commenters turned on, this catches most comment SPAM.
