Commenting on old PR4+ blogs and threads

Hi all,

First time posting on the site, but have learned a bunch from you guys over the past few weeks.

Here's my question:

Using Scrapebox, I've been able to find a bunch of PR4+ dofollow blogs that are still open for commenting. However, some of these blog entries or threads are from 2010 (obviously, there are recent ones as well). The question is are links placed on these older blog posts and threads as useful as links placed on newer ones?

Thanks in advance for any insight.

    Also, if the link appears on say the 2nd page (or any page other than the first page) of comments, does that negate the link juice from the link?

    Thanks again...

      Ok,

      If you could get your comments approved, I would go for it!

      However, in some cases on page 2 of the comments there may be no PR but in some cases there still is.

      Just leave some comments and link to a test site that had NO links from other sources and see what happens.

      As long as there are not thousands of other comments on that blog it does not really matter how old the blog is, if it is still indexed in google there is a good chance your link will get spidered and your backlink will still count.

      Understood. It's because I'm spending the time to manually comment on these blogs that I want to know whether commenting on a 2nd or 3rd page still generates link juice. And when I say "manually comment", I'm only adding 5-10 comments a day. Hopefully, since they're all high PR blogs, it'll be worthwhile.

      Thanks for the advice.

        You can ramp that up. 5-10 comments a day is a tiny, tiny amount. If you are doing this manually, you can't do enough manually a day by yourself to show up on Google's radar if that is what you are worried about. Do more.

        Also, are these PR 4+ pages or domains? If the page is a PR 4+, those can be good. If the comments are going to page 2, probably a waste of time. Besides the fact that page 2 is probably a PR 0, that also means the blog is getting spammed to death. It probably has a ton of outgoing backlinks. The more outgoing backlinks on the page, the less powerful each individual link is.

        Scrapebox also has an addon that will check how many outgoing backlinks are on a page. You can use that to sort out the ones that are heavily spammed.

    Well I would say the older the blog, the better. Scrapebox is an awesome tool once you find a good way of getting high PR links
