I am in search of some blogs for some back links for my niche, I want to keep these blogs on target for my keyword phrase, so I do searches like "keyword blog" but got no idea if they are no follow or not, I view the page sources but most of the time it has nothing in there, im assuming its pulling it in from a php file. I am not asking for a golden bullet, just a simple newbie way to find them.

    I haven't had a lot of experience finding the blogs, but you can check if the link is do-follow by adding the firefox do-follow plugin to your firefox browser. If you don't use firefox, you should at least have it available on your computer.

    I use 2 methods for finding dofollow:

    (1) you can use the google search parameters/strings to find dofollow blogs. Keep in mind that there are different blogging platforms. Among the more popular/common are wordpress, moveable type and blogengine.net(note that the blog platform is not actually at the address blogengine.net, it is actually a different html address, but all of the sites on this platform have a footer that says something like "powered by blogengine.net". Blogengine.net sites tend to dofollow more so than others, in my experience. For each platform, there are usually different keywords you can search for which tend to indicate that they are do-follow. If you do a search for something like "how to find dofollow blogs" in google you should find helpful search strings. For instance, wordpress sites with the "commentluv" plugin are do-follow, and there is a way to search in google for those. In addition, there is something that says something like "u comment, I follow" on blogs, which usually means they are dofollow.

    (2) find other top ranking sites and spy on their backlinks. This is my much preferred method. I believe backlinkwatch.com will tell you if the links are nofollow or not. Why should I do all the legwork when others have already done it for me

    As for telling if a link has the nofollow attribute attached to it, if you haven't already install the SEO Quake firefox addon. It will tell you tons of data about an individual site. I use it alot when I do google searches to check for IP diversity, page rank, etc. of all of the google search results. In addition, you can click a button in the addon which will put a strikethrough each nofollow link, so I use that for checking for dofollow links.

      I use SEO Spyglass.

      The Most Effective SEO Software - SEO PowerSuite Tools

      It isn't cheap. It is like $100 but worth every penny and then some. I have never seen anything even remotely like it.

      It can search 11 databases in the US (Google, Google Blog, Yahoo, Alexa, AlltheWeb, AltaVista (USA), AltaVista (Worldwide), Dogpile, Exalead and Excite, and many many more country specific databases (Algeria to Vietnam). It will then exclude the duplicates, and with the new list you can get all the info you could ever want on the links (nofollow, anchor text, anchor url, page pr, domain pr, # of external links on the page, domain IP, etc.).

      If a site has say, 500 links showing up in backlinkwatch, i might get upwards of 1500 results with this software.

      There is an unlimited number of search results.

  • Profile picture of the author Stephen Root
    The problem is that many of these scrapers and programs are not telling you if the comment links are dofollow or nofollow, they are telling you if there's nofollow links on the page. What happens is that if the blog has dofollow in comments but webmaster is pagerank sculpting, it's nofollow blog as far as scrapers are concerned. This is something that doesn't come up in the pitch, surprise.

    Don't worry if sites are nofollow. From my testing and several other peoples testings, your sites will still credit for nofollow links. Most .edu blogs are nofollow. Yet all of my sites with only .edu backlinks jump to the first page within a week.

      I would come back in a week or two and make another post... Try to link to relevant content on your site to get those "deep links." Also, if the blog has the CommentLuv plugin (for WordPress blogs) you'll get a backlink to your most recent post, so regular commenting will be beneficial every time (as long as you have posted something new to your blog).

        How do you fill in your response? I know that where you put your name will be the link, so do you put your keywords or do you put your name in there? I've always wondered what is the best way to handle this.

          I usually put my keywords. Note that that if it is a juicy do-follow blog/page and I think that my keyword name might get flagged and not accepted, I will just use a made up "real" name.

          Yes... you always want your keyword to be your Anchor Text for the hyperlink. Like this:

          <a href="http://mywebsite.com">Your Keyword</a>

          When commenting, the blog software usually takes the "Name" field and puts it in as the Anchor Text, so put your keyword as your name. Simple.

    I use two resources:

    1. Comment Kahuna (already mentioned)
    2. Do Follow Diver - just do a google search for it and it'll come up near the top of the results.

    On a side note, I believe blogs related to your site are among the best backlinks you can get because the content on the page the link is on is relevant to your website.

    Basically you can check whether a blog is dofollow or nofollow by seeing the source code of the post. If the comment URLs don't have a tag called rel="nofollow", then it means that it is a dofollow blog. Alternatively you can use the firefox addon called NoDoFollow for this purpose.

    Quirk Searchstatus addon for firefox is another way of finding do follow blog. If you like to find by page source then search for term nofollow in comment link. Dofollow blog is one great way of getting a backlink. You can also submit your site to some bookmarking sites as well.

    There is also a tool that installs to Firefox that will let you know what links are nofollow when you are on web pages. I believe it is part of the SEO Quake program. When you turn it on it shows links with a line through it to tell you that the link is not following. I just started using it and its been very helpful.

      How to find Do follow blogs using Google:

      Type the following on the search box on google and click on search:
      1.) "keyword" + "do follow blog"
      2.) "keyword" + "do follow blogs"
      3.) "keyword" + "blogs"

      Posting on .edu and .gov sites that allows you to post without login in would bring great value to your sites. Here is how you can search for those kind of sites in google:

      Put this on the search box:

      site:.edu inurl:blog"post a comment: -"comments closed" -"you must be logged in"

      To find .gov sites just change the .edu above to .gov

    There is an oddon for Firefox called NoDoFollow, what it does when active (right click --> NoDoFollow) is mark dofollow links as bule, nodofollow as red. When you go to blogs, see if the names of the posters of comments are blue or red, It's that simple.

    As for finding DoFollow blogs, Fast Blog Finder is a great tool. The free one gets about 10 dofollow blogs at once.

    Dofollow or no Nofollow,why not use <a rel="dofollow" href="yoursitehere">Your Anchor text/keyword here</a>.With this you could get a link juice even from a nofollow blog.But,I would say,to look natural to big G,don't just use this all the time,leave room for nofollow backlinks sometimes and beside,a backlink is a backlink,either do/no follow.

    Most KeywordLuv / CommentLuv blogs are DoFollow. So that's a start.

    That said, you need to leave comments that you'd approve on YOUR own blog to see any benefit.
