Hacking SEO with WordPress Template Vulnerabilities

Part of the work of an SEO is, once you know the things that work in SEO, search and find the flaws of the websites or Google and the vulnerabilities that it has to take advantage in our favor. This Hack SEO technique deals with it and will undoubtedly be useful for your web projects.

A few weeks ago, I came across two websites with very good PA and DA data and I saw some vulnerability that made them an easy target for SEO use, both in TIER 1 and TIER 2 or 3 depending on the subject of each project.

New SEO Hack to get free links!

To my surprise, two websites with very good statistics, updated daily and with many visits had by default a vulnerability that made that in the comments did not put the nofollow tag in the links, one in the name and another in the content of the comment using some html and the href tag.

Seeing that and seeing the theme of the web/blog, I thought that surely the creators of the same had not touched much code of the template and surely by default, both templates had that vulnerability by default and therefore all websites created with both templates, would be an easy target to put dofollow links pointing to my websites.

With this data, I had to look for which template was in both cases because I could see that they were different and I had to get that information. It was not difficult to get the name of both templates because simply putting the web in http://www.wpthemedetector.com/ tells us which template it is.

Once the templates were discovered, I went to themeforest to see if they had been purchased many times or not, because if they had not been successful the chances of finding more websites created with those templates were small and the chances of getting follow links through this method were small as well.

Luckily I came across this! Something that made me (and now is making you) very happy

Yes, if we add up the purchases of the two templates we get a total of 8284 template downloads, which is 2884 possible sites that have the comments section open to our links. Surely all the downloaded templates are not uploaded to a domain, but, surely many templates have been used several times and the amount of possible websites with vulnerability is much higher.

All right, we know which templates to look for and we know there are many waiting for us on Google, but how do we find them?

Very easy, thanks to Google we find advanced searches of the type site:, intittle:, etc….

My first option was the simplest, but the least effective

Doing a search for inurl:wp-content/themes/letsblog I found few results because the robots.txt file blocks the url automatically.

Note: Being links in comments, they have to approve them, be careful with what you comment, be generous when it comes to give good vibes in them and make the web administrator can not resist to publish it ?
