Link building with DoFollow Blogs

by 10 comments
Until now, I mostly accessed smaller niches, so advanced link building wasn't necessary to rank high. However, I'm in a bigger niche, therefore I thought, I'm going to try out the DoFollow Blog strategy. But:

I guess, while commenting, you only leave a link in your name. But if your name is your link, then it's hard to get good anchor texts, because such names are moderated immediately.

What are you strategies to get good backlinks (with optimal anchor texts), if the comments are moderated?

    Some thoughts:
    - Usually there's no rule that you have to present your real name. Use a nick that contains a keyword. Maybe make it actually look like a nick and do not use your exact URL as visible name. That's too blatant.

    - if comments are moderated: make sure your comment actually contributes to the post, then there's a good chance it will be published. People who write those shitty 'me to' and 'nice post' comments (not talking about you!) deserve to have their comments unpublished.

    - remember that blog commenting is only a small part in your overall link building strategy.

    Write a real comment, at the bottom of the comment put
    <a href="yourdomain/internalpage.htm (if you want a deep link)">anchor text</a> Leave the "internal page.htm" out if you only want to link to your home page.

      Rule # 1: Write good content.

      If you write a post that's compelling or interesting enough people who read it will be far more likely to go to your website.

      And if your post is moderated it won't get deleted.

      Also some of the posts you make yourself you can copy and use as content on your own site so you get multiple use from the posts you make.

      In your name you can add the odd word to get that hyperlink closer to the keyword phrase you're looking for.

      For example instead of "John Smith" you could put "SEO genius John Smith" or "John Smith SEO services".

      Kindest regards,
      Andrew Cavanagh

    If you go to a blog and all the other comments have names anchored then anchor your name. For some reason that is the only way some bloggers will approve a comment. Don't waste 5-10 minutes writing up a good comment if it is just going to be denied, or worse yet they will approve it but remove your link.

    Andrew is right. Content matters tremendously.

    In my experience, if you leave a good comment (meaning insightful, value-added, non-spammy) on a blog makes all the difference and owners are generally happy to keep your chosen anchor text.

    On the other hand, you if write something to the effect of "Nice post. Kthanxbye." or something blatantly stupid you're going to be deleted regardless of your author name.

    Hi Guys, This is Pushkar from nBridges Media and though I am a 2 year old member here, I am more of a lurker rather than a regular poster.

    I just saw the title and couldn't stop posting here Few weeks back, I had made a post in my blog NO value in dofollow commenting how there is NO value in do follow commenting. I came to this conclusion after handling campaigns of 3 clients and burning money in excess of $1000. The quality of the comments were fairly good and I am just not sure why I never saw any results.

    If mods thinks I should not link to my post than please they can edit my link I will also try to follow this thread

      How about this:

      Read Comment guidelines!

      On my blog I provide DoFollow in multiple ways and reward good commenters but I do delete comments that fail to follow guidelines no matter the comment content. if someone is too stupid to take time and read the guidelines posted right in the comment form - they don't deserve the link.

      You have to remember - blogger value content and adding to conversation but most bloggers I know are also protective of their blogs. Unlike in Internet marketing - blogs for many people are not only for earning (and for some not about earning at all) but also for sharing ideas, knowledge, passion. Respect that fact and read guidelines

    Hello. I want to be successful internet marketer. I have the zeal and passion to achieve this aim. But what restricting me to do this is money. As heading of my post says you would know that am from India. If you compare price of dollar with India Rupee its somewhere around $1=Rs. 66 which is increasing day by day. My budget would be $100/month which is equal to Rs. 6600. This is maximum I can spend. I dont have high paying job and also I have to pay rent, bills, etc. I need to pay for domain, hosting, bing ads, fb ads, landing page and so on. I know there are free methods too but as you say free methods take time to show result.

    Have a very special client. I like to call him the Sheikh. He does not mind. In return, he says that I am a Petrol Writer. This client is generous when it comes to pricing and payments. I have never been greedy. Just like Tom Cruise used to say in the Oblivion: We are an effective team! This gentleman is born and raised in Kuwait. He earned his degree in some prestigious London business school. Yet, when it comes to the business culture, he obviously follows the region of his origin. We do not discuss the price. We do not negotiate. Never. He orders the work. I deliver. Then, he asks how much needs to be paid. I get my money. That is it. Smooth and simple. For what is worth, so far, we have worked only on relatively small projects. Until recently. This was a client only to wish for. Guess, it is not only in my nature, but I was not quite satisfied. I wished we could do some more work. And, you know what happens when you wish for something. It happens to you, but not exactly the way you wanted to get it. So, one fine day, the Sheikh approached me with an unusual proposal. Like I passed all the test, and the time has come for the real thing. What he had on his mind was a book about his personal and professional journey, somewhere around 200 to 300 pages. A brand new website. We are talking about a few dozen pages at least. Then, there was a package of 30 blogs, give it or take. He also needed some scripts for promotion videos, but he was not quite sure how many of them.

    I read recently that as of late August, Google has removed the 3 adsense units per page limit and replaced it with a policy that has no specific limit but which requires that the amount of ads not exceed the amount of content. Is anyone familiar with this and can anyone suggest how best to implement this.
