How to Blog Comment as an Effective Link Building Technique

Mark Thompson August 8, 2011

Blog commenting has been and still is, an effective link building technique…when done right.  Simply running a piece of software that blasts out irrelevant comments to 1,000′s of blogs will just piss off a bunch of blog owners and/or HURT your rankings.  Especially with the Google Panda update, Google is really placing more emphasis on domain quality!

Here are some quick tips on Effective Blog Commenting

  1. Use a mixture of NoFollow and DoFollow blogs to make your link building look more natural
  2. Be consistent and build links on a on-going basis
  3. Find blogs that are relevant to your niche
  4. Write a comment that is targeted and specific to what the blog post is talking about – add value

This is the reason that you need to make sure you have already taken your website pretty far before you leave your first comment.The biggest problems involved with blog commenting are finding the right blogs for your comments and then getting those comments approved.

Hey I was wondering if anyone could tell me which universities are the best (anywhere) for creative writing. I'm not interested in any universities in Ontario because they don’t offer the type of courses I want. I was also wondering if maybe there are schools specifically for creative writing. Please help me out, I have to apply in Dec, and I have no idea where I'm going, I just know that I want to write, because writing is my life, and I can’t see myself doing anything else.

Hey there and thank you for your information – I’ve certainly picked up anything new from right here. I did however expertise a few technical points using this website, since I experienced to reload the web site many times previous to I could get it to load correctly. I had been wondering if your web host is OK? Not that I’m complaining, but slow loading instances times will very frequently affect your placement in google and could damage your high quality score if advertising and marketing with Adwords. Anyway I am adding this RSS to my email and could look out for much more of your respective intriguing content. Ensure that you update this again soon..

Backlinks are like votes to your site from other sites which pretty much tell something about your credibility. So I think it just makes sense to leave comments that add value to your site. Otherwise, this may backfire. Leaving spammy comments will definitely hurt you in the long run.

Yeah I agree this is interesting software, Mark. Just started using it this weekend. I tend not to worry so much about do follow or not either. Including both helps to create a more natural feel to your links like you said. However do you worry about the age of the blog posts returned by FBF? Some of the results returned are for posts over a year old. Or do you just plow thru the results leaving comment after comment where possible? Do you use a web proxy? You mentioned outsourcing. Do you have a so many per hour number you expect them to complete? I’ve seen 6-8 an hour is good. But I have yet to figure this all out myself before turning it over to my helpers. One thing I’ll do is have something like yahoo.answers open in another tab. That way I can do a quick search, come up with an idea or two to enrich my response - if I choose to use the approach of adding to the blog owners post. I haven’t used FBF long enough to say if that matters or not. when it comes to approval rate. My recent post undefined

That is cool way to find the blogs. usually what i do is type Keyword + Blog and check the site with SEO plugin and then post the comment. Ofcourse, it is necessary to read fully and comment. just a plain thanks will be deleted. Thanks for the tip

I don't know man, from reading SEOMoz they suggest that blog commenting isn't that useful anymore. Are you sure about this?

Hello! Blog commenting is essential for bringing traffic-that is why we all do it, right? Of course, it is even better when you can build mutual confidence with the blogger. I do not comment just on sites similar to mine, but on all the sites that I find interesting or that have topics that are useful for me to learn about. I think I want to try your "Techniques" in BLogg commenting..Its really interesting one :) But I hope its not spammy one. Thanks My recent post blah blah test

Hi Mark, thanks for this great video. I have a question for you about the content of the actual comment. In the 'Name' field of the comment, do you put your keyword in there, or just use your real name? The reason I ask is because I tried putting my keyword in there and bloggers just reject it as spam. What's your advice? Thanks!

I downloaded the fast blogg finder, find it works well but isnt it more natural to have both do follow and no follow so it looks more like a human is doing it, is this not what google likes?. other then that it seems to be quite useful.

Thanks for sharing this tool. One quick question: At the end of the video you mentioned that about 10% of your blogs are approved. Is this considered a high number?

I do not understand how different it is from other software. At the end of the day you might be happy to post comment on more blog, but the question is about quality. Stop abusing the system My recent post Download Hulu Videos with StreamTransport: YouTube, Yahoo!, Megavideo and other sites are supported as well

Great question Jon. Personally I like to put an actual Name in the Name field. Just like you said, bloggers tend to delete comments when they see the commenter is only out to get a link (especially when its not relevant to the blog). Just because you put your name in the field, doesn't mean you won't get link juice....you still will. Yes, you may get more link value with the keywords linking to your domain, but the percentage of getting your comments accepted go WAY down. If you really want to get good anchor text in your comment. Leave a comprehensive comment (100-350 words), then link to a relevant post on your site using the proper anchor text in your comment. Hope that helps! Mark

Yes, the goal is to manually comment on these blogs. The secret sauce in this software is the ability to easily find lots of quality, relevant blogs to comment on. I would recommend manually commenting to both the dofollow and nofollow blogs to make your links look more natural. Always take the time to read the post and leave an insightful comment.

Hi Mark, Thanks very much for your quick reply. I see your point - makes more sense to use a name instead of risking ending up on a spam list. Sometimes on Comment Luv blogs I use my keyword, otherwise I'll just stick to a name from now on.
