    . Blog commenting it is a good way to increase the awareness of the site and get more referral traffic. choose the hot and new topic to leave comment. leave your comment at first or first page to increase the visibility of your links. don't use any stop words in the comment with simple sentence. understand which one is described by the author before leave your comment.

      Depending on the blog quality, niche, and amount of visitors it could be good not only for rankings, but for getting organic trafic as well.

      As for rankings, it would be much better if the blog has high PR and if backlink to your site is dofollow

    It depends. Blog commenting can increase ranking and traffic to your website. However, aside from commenting on blogs that are "dofollow", these blog websites should have a PR of at least 3 and must be relevant to your niche or keywords. Commenting on commentluv enabled site can be good for promoting your content or website as well.

    Blog commenting is a tried-and-true way to increase traffic to your blog, website and possibly gain back links. Also, The blogs that get much traffic should be the ones that you subscribe to and comment on often. These blogs have quite a big number of followers which can in turn be your followers should you catch their attention.

    Mindlessly spamming your link to thousands of blogs using automated tools? Bad

    Leaving legitimate comments on high quality blogs? Good

    Commenting is one of the easier ways to generate DoFollow / PR1+ backlinks if you know where to look. Just make sure you're leaving good comments. I always suggest that you stop and think to yourself, "Would I accept this comment on my own blog?" before posting it.

    Blog commenting can be effective or not. If you are commenting to blogs which are relevant to your niche it will be helpful. If you choose just to comment on many blogs in order to get back links i t can harm your site. Just be honest and do comments which worth to be read.

    Focus on visiting good quality blogs that are related to your niche, and concentrate on building a reputation rather than just leaving spammy links everywhere. A lot of blogs are 'nofollow', so try and find some high PR 'dofollow' blogs and focus on contributing great content. It may actually get you some traffic.

    Non-spammy blog commenting. Just one of MANY ways to get good quality back links. Time consuming though if you have many sites you're performing SEO on. Nonetheless, variety of links is key.

  • Profile picture of the author GeraldNitram
    Yes, blog commenting can really be a good way of building your links. You just have to make sure that you're giving value to the post and the conversations, and that your link actually supports the ideas that you've brought up. If you're just going to leave a link there without the intention of adding value, whether you've done it manually or through automation, it's going to be bad.

      I usually try to mix it up. Some comments I'll use just anchor text (If I see that others have successfully done it), other posts I'll use my name + anchor text, others just names, etc.

      Basically just mix it up as much as you can.

    To do blog commenting the correct way it is pretty simple, take time to read the blog post and when you make a comment make it relevant to what the post is about, do not make the mistake of just reading the title of the blog post to save time and making a comment just from that. Because most likely your comment may be a bit off topic and you risk getting your comment deleted or not approved.

      I agree with what most of the posters of this thread have said, and this sums it up for me. I think the effectiveness of blog commenting depends on how well-written and relevant the comment is.

    Very dangerous in my opinion, if you're going to rely on it for future rankings.

    In most cases, one day the blog owner will decide that he/she is getting too much spam and slap a nofollow tag on all of the outbound links and all of your work gets wiped out in the click of a mouse.

    Focus on high quality guest posts.

      It's not too hard to rank if you're going after the right keywords. But as far as pure traffic, social media sites can be a little bit easier to work with. (Long term, though, you still want to try and rank for your keywords.)

But if you wanna to have a comment box on your website, i love to suggest you that go through that, coz comment box is one of the best way to get unique content over the webpage, it will surly help you to get max hits and also will improve your SEO values.

    But if you wanna to build back links i love to suggest you to do the following activity :

    2: Nofollow forums post
    3: Blog commenting (Dofollow and No follow)
    4: Articles posting
    5: Directory
    6: Classified Post
    7: Social Bookmarking
    8: Link exchange
    9: profile Links
    10: blogs

    12: Signature Posting
    13: web2.0 creations

    Always remember that Content is the king If you really wanna have max link just go through Uniqe content, you will get the advantage of google freshness algo.

    For traffic, it seems most effective to use you name and not put a link in the past.

    Since Panda and Penguin does the anchor test need to be varied? If bloggers don't like you using a keyword for your name, what do you use to vary the text?

      I know this is going to be a lot harder than the usual, the best way is to find a place where you can use the anchor text in such a way that it would give value to the page where you're going to leave your link. It's part of the challenges of link building through blog comments.

    Blog commenting is only good if you provide really usefule comments for the readers. And it should be something like "Thanks for sharing awesome info" or "Great info" etc.

    Try to give some more info about the content with your comment. So that it will attract user and this will get some visitor to your site.

    Hope it helps.

      Actually, it should be the complete opposite of "Thanks for sharing awesome info." I'm assuming that's what you meant, right? Because "thanks for sharing" is definitely not going to get it done.

    I've been engaging in blog commenting for a while now. It seems to be very effective even after the penguin and panda updates.

    Make sure you use relevant anchor text. You also want to make sure your comment is longer than 2 sentences. Don't just say "Hey good article." That will be represented as spam and your comment could get deleted.

      It's smart to diversify it though. Don't go 100% anchor text. Google seems to be targeting sites with obvious anchor text spam. So mix it up a little here and there.

    If your comment is genuine, other readers and potentially the blog owner will end up checking you out!

    As above, spamming lots of blogs with irrelevant or none valuable comments that do not contribute to the post offers no value at all. Whilst commenting on quality blogs and actually adding value to the post is good and will give you quality links that is good for your overall link profile.

    It's also helps to get direct, targeted traffic from the blogs themselves.
