Why the “U Comment I Follow” Query Works for Finding Blogs with DoFollow Links?
Of course, now you must know why this works. No problem. It’s simple really. Many bloggers choose to allow there blogs to include “dofollow” links either as the username or embeddable links as a courtesy to internet users. Well, actually, it’s more out of their disdain for the entire “nofollow” movement.
Choose your side, but imagine a world without “nofollow” links in blog comments. Blogs would be even more spammed by SEOs like you on a regular basis. So, let’s be thankful for the “nofollow” movement, however let’s also call a spade a spade. Blog commenting for link building can be easy and effective, but it’s spammy. No way around it.
There are ways to make it less spammy, however, and here’s some general tips:
- Don’t leave more than one comment per site for a period of time, or you’ll piss off the blogger. Besides, you want to diversify your inbound linking domains anyway.
- Contribute constructively to the conversation when leaving a comment. Your comment is much more likely to be published if you provide a thoughtful response instead of something along the lines of “Great Post! Visit my site at www.TotalJerk.com“
- Don’t put links into your comments unless you see other published comments with embedded links. You’ll decrease the chance of your link being published.
- Don’t use a keyword as your “name” (which will be your link) unless you see you other published comments with this already done.
