Here Is A solution I used to do which is still pretty effective.
Now before I start, this method can only be done on a self hosted wordpress site since it involves a Wordpress plugin.
First I start by installing the Disqus Plugin on my site. I use this particular plugin because in my opinion it is one of the best "comment plugins" available.
Now another reason why this one works well for this method is because, once you install it, it leaves a phrase around the words: "blog comments powered by Disqus" or something around that phrase on your comment box.
Another thing I like about it is that it allows "dofollow" posting, but I have heard that even if it is nofollow it may not make too much of a difference.
I also use Firefox, Which has good plugins to install which can help find out competition's page rank, backlinks, Alexa rankings and much more.
A couple I recommend are:
- SEO Status PageRank/Alexa Toolbar
That being said, after installing your plugins and setting up your account with Disqus,(which is free) we can now begin the strategy.
On Google Search, enter in quotes "blog comments powered by Disqus". If entered correctly you can see that there are currently a total of around 81,7000,000 pages that are able to be commented on.
Now out of that, Im sure you could find some pretty good pages for your niche. But this is way too many results to find some good ones to work with. That's why we are going to use a keyword to lower the results
For this Tutorial, We will use the keyword: Penny Stocks
Now you want to enter the keyword out of quotes, while still entering the rest in quotes. In other words like this:
penny stocks "blog comments powered by disqus"
If done correctly you should see around 650,000 results now for this phrase.
Next click the 2nd result as the first one has a PR of 0 for the home page but the second has a PR of 5. This should be:
Top 10 Penny Stocks of 2010 - TheStreet
As you will see, it allows Disqus comments. You should write your comment in this format:
- Comment should be somewhat valuable so it doesn't get deleted
- Name Field Should Be Anchor Text(The keyword you want to rank for)
- Website name should be in the website field
Also note that after you post one comment using disqus, you only have to write the comment from there on out for any other page you want to comment on and all the other fields are used automatically by the Disqus application cookies.
Now even though this page's PR shows 0 in your plugin or whatever you use to check PR, it won't matter so lets keep moving.
Now we search for all the pages on the site that are indexed in google.
For This particular site we would search:
Noticed what I did to it? The part directly after the section is usually the part called "blog" or in this case "story" or something along those lines. Keep that part and get rid of the rest.
Enter into Google search:
You should see around 30,600,000 results. But get this:
EACH ONE OF THESE PAGES CAN BE COMMENTED ON!
But that's not what we want to do. Many of these will be PR 0 pages, but you will also find quite a few PR 1 and above pages as well.
Now the quick method of running through this list to find the good ones is by using a Url Tool to make the list into a text file. A pretty good and free one is Get Url which can be found here for free:
getURL | Download getURL software for free at SourceForge.net (not an affiliate link)
Make the list into a txt file, then import it through any PR program that allows you to check them quickly this way. Another tool that isn't bad to start out for PR's is The PaRaMeter tool found here free:
PaRaMeter - free Google PageRank software. Monitors Google page rank. (not an affiliate link)
Finally use the two programs to make the list with PR's and you will see all of the pages you would want to comment on.Also Notice how I only used one site in my example. Well imagine doing this for a couple and you will see how effective this could end up being for you.
And that's all there is to it. Your quick method of getting related backlinks for you niche fast and quite easily.
