Posting comments on blogs is one great way to get those back links everyone needs for their own site, which is why newbies are always asking me the best way to go about commenting. First of all, remember that your comments must relate to the blog post itself and must never outright promote your website. Take the following as an example. If the blog in question deals with website designers in the greater New York area, you could share a personal experience you had when you hired a design team in that location. Perhaps you could write about pricing. What you should not say is, “Hire us for your website design needs,” because chances are the blog owner will view it as spam and your comment will be removed. In turn, your site’s credibility will be flushed down the tubes.
The Benefits of Do-Follow Blogs
A blog’s do-follow tag lets the blog’s “link juice” pass on to the website commenting on it. Do-follow blogs are vital to your site’s PR. They assist in spreading that link power to other websites, which will bring in much needed traffic to your website. The more links you have posted on blogs, the higher your site’s plausibility and exposure. So whatever you post, make it relevant and make it worthwhile.
Searching on Google will help you get the most up-to-date list of do-follow blogs to keep for your search engine optimization needs. However, do-follows are tags that attach to the website’s HTML. And those tags can be switched to no-follow tags at any time. Make sure your list is updated regularly so you know if the blog you want to comment on is a do or no-follow.
The best thing to do is to export your relevant do-follow blog list. The list should be arranged by their PR (page rank). Visit the blogs highest on the list and comment on those first. Put your website’s name or the specific keyword you are using in place of your name.
Doing this accomplishes two things. First, you are getting the word out about your website. Second, you are increasing the rank of your page. After you post a comment, don’t stop there is still more work to be done. You need to visit on a regular basis and continue to make comments. Joining a community of blogs not only benefits your website, but also gives you ideas you can put to use in all aspects of your life.
