I've just started creating my own website and blog. I have zero backlinks and am learning from scratch. A few beginner questions please if you don't mind
1. If I comment on blogs (dofollow), how long before my backlink appears in a backlink search (I use backlinkwatch com?). I've posted on a few blogs but the backlinks don't show up when I search. I guess backlinks won't show until my blog post has passed moderation right?
2. Some blogs allow comments only through facebook posts. I assume these are no good for creating backlinks right?
