Can somebody please share how to find blogs and forums for commenting?

Also I am a bit confused on where to link. I mean somewhere I find people saying that now after the Panda and penguin updates, we must only get contextual backlinks.

On the other hand some say that we can post to any blog or forum irrespective of the niche.But the comment should not be spam.

Please tell me how the links should be built now in 2012?

    Yes, you shouldn't SPAM. And contextual link has greater value always. Emphasize on On Page optimization first(Unique content that adds value to the reader, well structured site), then add Quality backlinks.

      This will not work at all. Now a days, dofollow and nofollow hardly matters to google. Spamming is not allowed at all. Only dofollow links can penalizr you because it does not look natural at all.

        Janice is totally correct. Dofollow or Nofollow it does not matter. Always mix them up. Usually i don't care about them

        Just do a footprint on google as someone already said it earlier. Get SEOQUAKE, find high PR sites and get links from them.

    Nice thread mate. You raised a question of several minds'.

    Back links... always a terrible word for inexperienced. But no need to worry on that as you are in a great land where webmasters and SEOs with lot of experience are living.

    Hoping i'm one of them giving you my experience.

    I will say yes if anyone ask "is there any need to follow some ethical ways in constructing back links." Not only in the matter of linking strategies, but every carving touch to your website/blog. I'm strongly suggesting, advising and ordering(sorry) to not to go out of your niche when you are commenting on blogs/websites. Matt cutts mentioned in his personal blog that relevancy and manual commenting is must otherwise please don't comment to get a punishment.

    I think its not a big and hard task to comment on your niche relevant blogs. Just search with your meta keywords in Google and list out your competitors and supporters (who are below you). Filter out the best sites which holds good PR, content, back links and traffic. After getting the fine list for commenting, be updated with those sites, observe them, leave comments on their blogs with your knowledge about what they posted. This way will leads you not only quality and relevant back links but also keep you updated with what your competitors are. so you can easy understand your competitors hence easy to move up.

    For forum links, i personally don't know much about forum linking strategies. I use forums to share and gain knowledge, if you are here for the same you too do the same but don't ever and ever break the rules. Use your signature to get links and try posting useful and updated things so everyone will support you. so people will follow your links to get what you are offering there. One more thing is don't use signature everywhere instead use only at the threads which are relevant to your signature.

    Raise your question if i'm confusing you.

    yeah you should only use this type of back linking as one among many methods. Too many of these will actually hurt your link juice to your site....so take it moderately.

    Use footprints like some of the ones mentioned above, install SEO Quake and set Google results to 100. Then you can look at the PR of the pages. Find ones with low out bound links and leave a good comment on them.

    Scrapebox will help you find these faster and easier, the best method is to use Scrapebox to find the links and then manually comment on them. Of course finding platforms that cannot be posted to by Scrapebox is the real trick.

    Too many dofollow links are going to be bad. The best thing to do is find some blogs your niche and start commenting.

    Try the CommentLuv blogs, most of these are dofollow & mix them with some high PR sites, these will mostly be NoFollow. Besides, you are likely to get more traffic from a site like problogger.net than you would any other.

    Try to make your commenting look as natural as possible. There is a program called Comment Kahuna that is free, but you have to opt in to a list...this will find CommentLuv, KeywordLuv, & a bunch of others.

    One more thing, you should look for KeywordLuv enabled blogs, which are almost always DoFollow. If you don't need a large amount of posts you can do a simple search:

    "keywords" + "this site uses keywordluv" + "powered by Wordpress"

      I don't necessarily agree with this. I still see results, even if I'm commenting on non-niche related blogs. Niche related is good for potential traffic, though.

    To build backlink, at first try to write as much quality content as you can so that people like to share your content and link to it. I know you don't have much control over others. So you can post guest post on high authority blogs and comments on other related blogs and of course social sharing.

    Thanks.

    Look for relevant blogs to comment on by searching on Google/Bing for: "leave a comment" keyword

    There are other variations you can use so just play around with it.

    Leave a well thought out comment that responds to the post. You want to add to the conversation. Your link goes in the URL field. Whatever you put in the Name field gets hyperlinked. I always use my name or my company name. Reason being, it's more natural and you get your comment approved more.

    Really what I'm going for are links from relevant content. I don't care about the anchor text. And now post Penguin, having generic anchor text in your link profile is a good thing.

    Good luck,
    ryan

    Always, always give value. Keep it relevant and responsive to the post. If it was your blog or forum, what quality content would you like to see added? As Ryan said, search "leave a comment" and you will find plenty of opportunities.

    Actually to find a blog to comment first you have to check that which type of site you are commenting for. Try to match the topics of those to sites. As example if you have a site about webmaster topics and you want to do blog commenting for that site you should find an existing high page ranked webmaster blog.

      I comment on plenty of non-niche related blogs if I'm just trying to create backlinks.

      For traffic? Sure. Niche-related blogs are definitely an overlooked source.

    1. Commenting is NOT for google.
    Comments are all NOFOLLOW (in any decent blog platform)

    2. DOFOLLOW blogs are crap.
    They make little Google difference

    3. Comment with valuable stuff so the
    - OP might actually edit his post and quote you and link to you
    - Readers will go, "WHOA, This guys is the bomb. I'm going to link to his site."
    - ummm...

    4. see link in my signature... it goes into detail

    5. do what I did in #4.
    Create a valuable list then do a "cliff hanger" on an odd number. People hate dangling sets so they will click your link.
    AND... if the mods like to delete posts with links... if your previous points are valuable... they will hesitate and keep your comment alive!
