Blog Commenting the Successful Way
Many people are currently adding blog commentary to their arsenal of link building tools. The reason for this is that commenting on blog posts can be an easy way to get a free backlink to your website.
When a blogger posts a new article on their site, you will often see the comments section at the end of the post. From the blogger's point of view, allowing people to comment on their post will draw in more visitors, because people like to be able to interact as well as obtain a free link back to their own site.
Because commenting can be used successfully to increase your rankings, a lot of people abuse it by placing spam comments on blogs. Thankfully, there are tools available to bloggers to prevent this type of spam but unfortunately it is still commonplace.
What you do not want to do is look like a spammer. This will only ensure that your comment is illegally to be published. What's more, you could find yourself on a spam list that preventing you from making any further comments.
Another thing to avoid is finding a blog that has already been spammed. A well-moderated blog rather than a free-for-all spam-infected page is what you are looking for. Pages with very few links on them are a lot more valuable than pages with many outbound links.
Another thing to bear in mind is that you will want to find blogs which do not have the nofollow attribute for comment links. Instead, you want a follow link which passes Pagerank to your website. To simplify the process of finding blogs without the nofollow attribute, simply download a plugin for your browser that would show whether links are nofollow or not. This will save you a lot of time and energy when looking for blogs to comment on.
As with all search engine optimization techniques, you should get a feel of this method first before plunging straight in. It's not just a free technique to give your site a boost in the search engines, it could also bring you traffic and enhance your reputation in your niche.
