Hey all, I belong to a marketing forum where a member has developed a wordpress plugin that will insert comments into blog posts at random intervals set by the plugin from a text file of pre-written comments. But the problem is that when the comments are posted onto the blog they all originate from the same IP address which is 127.0.0.1 - the ip address of the wordpress installation. So you end up with all of these comments on your blog originating from the web host.
I believe that this sort of thing will hurt our rankings and google will penalize us for it. Would that be a true assumption? Can you provide official documentation to back up any replies either way?
