Akismet Ban Might Equal Google Rankings Decrease

A few months back I started experimenting with Jeremy Schoemaker’s Shoemoney Tools suite. In particular I tested out the Related Blog Post tool. While the other tools in the set are invaluable, this one caused me some serious grief because I failed to fully understand what the tool did.

As a result of my lack of understanding, Akisment banned me from the WordPress comment system. Anytime I attempted to leave a comment on another blog, it automatically went to their spam folder. It even treated my own trackbacks to other posts on this blog as spam in my own spam folder!

It should be pointed out that the tool does come with a warning that reads “Be careful with this one,” but I did not heed the warning.
