Making comments in blogs is a popular SEO technique for a long time. The intention has been to increase back-links to your website in order to improve Page Rank and/or increase the prominence of certain keyword phrases for your site’s search engine rankings. As a bonus from this strategy you could also bring in direct traffic but the principal goal of this SEO method has always been about the link you get back to your web-site.
If you looked through SEO forums on link-building, you’ll often hear people using this technique being one of the easier ways of getting back-links to your website. This kind of assertion shows that their SEO expertise is not up to date with regards to this specific SEO method. It’s not the thing you do but how you do it that matters.
For you to use this blog commenting effectively to improve SEO, there is more to it than simply posting comment on any blog. You should consider quality over quantity. I’ve always believed and implemented this and after the Penguin update in 2012, this is more so than ever.
Don’t undervalue the blog research; it is an extremely time-consuming, yet crucial task.
In order to give you an idea of how tedious it can be to find a few good SEO compatible blogs: once I gather a list of 15,000 blog domains I’ll put them through a program that will provide information like domain PR, page PR and outgoing links. But the most important aspect is that the program also indicates blogs that are ‘dofollow’. From the list, around 200-600 blogs will be ‘do-follow and the rest of the thousand and thousands of websites all include the nofollow tag. However, the program will only test for a certain technical aspects. There’s additional to the process than just that. So now comes the lengthy task of manually checking them to determine criteria like:
1. Does the blog remain active?
2. Still applauding comments?
3. Does the link to the comment you leave are really ‘do-follow are they?
4. Does the comment section appear located in Java (if it is, then the link will not be discovered through Google)?
5. Are there redirects on the link?
6. Have you noticed that the blog has been spammed?
7. Does the blog have pages that are Page Rank?
8. What requirements must be met to make comment (many blogs need registration or subscription)?
After this has been checked I might have a list of 50-100 left to use, I do however have a list of blogs that I’ve collected over the last 4 years so I would just be adding 15-40 new blogs based on an investigation of this size.
Following this, I’ll begin manually with blogs that were flagged by the program as ‘no-follow’, and they’ll be in thousands. I’m not able to go through all of them, therefore I’ll have to go for combinations based on experience of what might be an appropriate blog. I often base my choices on domain Page Rank or Page PR, Page-title and so on. If I am searching blogs that the program showed as no-follow, I can describe it as fishing. Sometimes I’ll get lucky and draw in the big catch.
You will need blogs related to your particular subject matter
* Niche blogs
I’ve always believed in quality when it comes to blog-commenting as an SEO strategy. the choice of blogs is important and you should get backlinks from similar blogs with good page rank. However, if you have an extremely narrow market you won’t be able to be many blogs that meet the criteria of an SEO user-friendly blog. Some of the blogs you discover might not want to accept your post when they perceive you as an opponent.
* Related pages
Certain, related blogs are the most suitable ones to leave comments on, however, a key factor not to forget when you are trying to build your site’s link profile is to receive links from different IP addresses.
Increase the variety of blogs by selecting authoritative blogs that have pages that have a connection to your website. There are numerous blogs that have under-sections that will suffice. Let’s say, for instance, your site is focused on yoga; expand to blogs for women, and health blogs.
TIP! If you’re in the confines of a niche Guest posting is an excellent SEO strategy as there are many websites with high-quality back-links available for the right written article.
Blog commenting as an SEO strategy following the Penguin update is all about the quality of the blogs you will post on and also ensuring that you contribute by leaving a high-quality comments. The most important task is the research that you will be required to conduct to locate related sites and blogs that are related to your particular niche.
The benefit is that now all you have to do is follow your list and leave comments. The average quality of the hyperlinks will be extremely high this is the time and place that your blog research is rewarded in big ways. That’s how you can find a number of quality links quickly and simple.
FINAL TIP! Do not forget to obtain links from various sources, not just blog comments for the sake of building a strong healthy link-profile you will need to diversify your sources and I’ll repeat this again, high-quality is the main factor.
