    There not awful,

    Use blog comments as a way to create authority and get referral visitors though. But don't count them out just because they're no ideal for SEO.

    Yes Google still gives value to backlinks but the main thing is from where are you getting those backlinks. In blog comments if you are getting quality backlinks from do follow links then it helps you get up in rankings but ample number of no follow links does not create much difference in your search engine rankings as those links do not get cached.

    A lot of people will say no, and confuse legitimate comments with mass comment spam. (Which is pretty useless since most of the comments / links are going to be on pages that have zero value. Mainly from being spammed-to-death, PR N/A, nofollow, etc.)

    However, leaving legitimate comments on quality blogs (DoFollow, moderated, etc.) is still a method that is going strong.

    There can also be an indirect benefit from leaving good quality blog comments. As they will be read by both the blog's owner and readers, there's the possibility that you may earn a more powerful backlink if someone likes your site.

    • If you leave engaging comments on popular blogs with high Page Rank, you will get quality backlinks that add value to your site. Ping your comments and interact with the other users. In addition to backlinks and traffic, this strategy can enhance your online reputation and credibility.

      Also, comments from popular / niche related blogs may bring in a fair amount of traffic to your site.

    I know of plenty of people that use backlinks successfully to rank their sites. Ideally, you want them to be from your niche and dripped.

    Blog commenting still have good value in the eyes of Google provided the site has less OBL(Out Bound Link), relevant to your niche and small + consistent links are created.. PM me if you want to know in detail..

    I could increase the PR of the site through Blog commenting..
