6 Tips to Consider before Commenting For Backlinks

As you are reading this post I can presume that you know a few basics of Search engine optimization (SEO) and so you might have known the importance of backlinks to make your blog hit the 1st page of search engine results. I guess by this time a few of you even have started commenting on different blogs to get backlinks. Actually commenting is not only the way to get backlinks you can even write guest posts and even request for a link exchange with your fellow bloggers. But here I will post a few things which you have to consider before commenting for backlinks.

Dofollow is a Must

The things you have to consider before commenting for backlinks are the first one is check whether it is a dofollow blog or nofollow blog. Actually search engine bots only indexes the URLs present in the dofollow blogs. So if you are commenting for backlinks then you must choose a few dofollow blogs and then can comment freely.

You may ask how I can find whether a blog is dofollow or nofollow. Here is the way through which you can do that go to source code of the blog post and find whether the links in the comments has this attribute with a dofollow value” rel=dofollow”. If it has you it is dofollow blog and you can get a backlink by commenting.

Niche Specific

Even if it is a dofollow blog it is always better to select some dofollow blogs belonging to your niche. Search engine gives more ranking if your backlink belongs to the same niche.

Comment your comment:

Frankly to say commenting is the best way to get backlinks to your blog/website. By commenting you can interact with your fellow bloggers so that you can build your circle in blogosphere. So you can be, in touch with them and can know tips which they are using to make their blog popular.

Grab Attention

If you want to get attention of your fellow blogger then you need to criticize the post written by him but it should be in a productive way. What I mean is instead of commenting as “nice post thanks for sharing” first go through the article and find if there are any mistakes or any other faults in the article and suggest it to him then for sure he will reply you if he is an active blogger. But always keep in mind that your critic must not hurt him.

Comment Luv Adds for you:

By selecting a dofollow blog with comment luv plugin with backlink you even get good traffic to your blog because comment luv plugin displays your latest blog post below your comment so if your blog post title is catchy you can get a good amount of traffic by just commenting.

Don’t Automate:

Some people are too lazy so they automate even the commenting process. There are some bots which can comment automatically on a blog without any human intervention. I suggest not to do that because these days there are plugins which can detect whether it is a bot or human and mark it as spam. So comment genuinely and get backlinks.

you can see  in the entire post I carefully used  the word “commenting for backlinks” and not just commenting .All the above tips are applicable only for those who are commenting to get backlinks and not for normal commenters. Normal readers can comment on any site irrespective of dofollow or nofollow.

    Hi Sumanth, would you say seems to make sense to me, even though I really do not understand the difference between follow and nofollow. In any case, if I wanted to follow your advice, how do I find dofollow blogs in the net?
