That's called being a comment whore...when you leave comments on high traffic blogs just to gain traffic yourself. I'm a comment whore on one blog and that's because I really don't like her but I get tons of traffic. My readers probably know who she is......
And while I may not get hundreds of comments on my blog, I do get quite a bit across all 4 and I read EVERY single one them;) It's my job.

Altho I have to say that I've been told a way to increase traffic is to leave comments on the popular blogs. It just seems insincere to me. Leaving a comment in a blog just to get traffic to mine? Maybe some of the more popular bloggers have figured this out and think people are just fishing for readers?
