This will be old hat to many, but for those of you starting out, here's a couple of ways to find decent blogs to comment on:
- Blog commenting still works provided we're making good, relevant comments on good, relevant blogs. Finding good blogs to comment on used to be a pain but using Drop My Link - Find sites to create backlinks on makes it much easier to find blogs. By entering a keyword or phrase, and selecting the type of blogs you want such as .edu, .gov, DO Follow, etc., it will generate the necessary search string to find them - then do the search in Google for you!
- Popular blog posts, particularly those on popular blogs, get a lot of traffic. And many readers continue reading once they reach the end of the post, browsing the first comments - By creating a Google Alert - Google Alerts - Monitor the Web for interesting new content - for the best or most popular blogs & bloggers in a niche we're in, we get quick, early notice when something new is posted. This lets us hop over and often be one of those first or early commenters, which in turn drives good traffic to our site.
