Blog Commenting as Link Building, Does it Still Works?

Jun 16, 2010Blogging, How To4 comments

Bloggers are busy writing articles for their blogs. If you are a blogger then you should be busy too. But writing good articles won’t always bring you success. You have to announce yourself to the world and let the people know about your presence.

People won’t find hidden treasures in your blog unless you bring them on your ship. And for that, you have to concentrate on blog comments.

What is it?

Blog commenting is a way to socialize with the readers and giving respect to the author. Under the post – in most of the blogs, there is a form to leave your comments. That’s the comment section. If you are willing to make a successful and great blog then you have to concentrate on improving your blog’s comment section too.

Why you need it?

Blog commenting is an easy way to get backlinks from the high page-ranked site. This is actually the easiest way. I always try to read what other bloggers are writing about. And if the post inspires me – then why not give him a comment of inspiration? And in return, you can put your blog’s link. I don’t mind about it.

01. Rather than browsing and spending a lot of money on getting links, I think this is the easiest and better way to get noticed by the search engines. And thus you can improve your ranks too.

02. When you are leaving comments and links on the page you liked, which has the same type of niche as yours- then it’s easy for you to grab more visitors.

03. If you comment regularly on a blog, then the other readers will get to know you and come to your blog too.

04. Encourage your readers to put comments in your blog. This will increase the interaction between you and them.

05. A comment section is a part where you get to know about your readers and let them enlighten you with new ideas and views. So try to answer everyone in your blog.

06. Commenting or giving answers in your own blog also shows that you are concerned about your ideas and can tell more to the readers if they need to. It’s a way to keep people coming.

How to leave a comment

Now you can’t go to any blog and leave a comment like “thanks” or “great post” and then put your link back. This is just a kind of spamming. I personally don’t like it. You have to read the post and then comment on a special line or point. That will show that you have read the topics and really want to join the discussion. 

Keep the following points in your mind while commenting on other blogs.

01. Try to avoid spelling and grammatical mistakes while commenting. This can put a bad impression on you.

02. If possible leave your comments with some information that proves you are an expert too.

03. Give your real name in the name field if needed. Don’t try to mock people with your brand name. That’s stupid and annoying. Most of them can easily get that this is not your name.

04. Don’t give comments on all of the posts and not all at once. The intention of people doing this is clear – “Getting more links in a short time”. Most of the time they can’t do any quality comment. As a result, gets deleted.

05. Try to give different comments in different blogs. Don’t leave a single type of comment in 10 or 20 blogs. It can be easily identified by the spam engines that you are a spammer.

Keep in mind that – your blog’s comment section is proof that your blog is alive and informative. It is the way to socialize and interact with your readers. So use it carefully and use it more.

    This is a very good article.

    It is a shame most people do not take the time to understand how commenting on another’s blog is good for link building. Too many people just spam without saying anything relevant. And naturally, their spam gets deleted.

    Keep up the good work and best wishes to you.

      You are right. I spent lots of my time in commenting to others blog and deleting spams in my blog. It’s rally a bad thing when we just try to spam by leaving irreverent comments and links. thanks for stopping by.

    Dj. Nice post. Yes leaving comment is a great way to build backlink since it’s really easy and free. But all comments link doesn’t work as backlink. If you comment on dofollow blog, only then your comment link will be indexed by search engine boss google and that’S will be backlink for you. So if you want to build link by commenting then it’s better to comment on Dofollow blogs. Any way i’m not telling that commenting on nofollow is not backlink. You know besides google there are lots of search engine like bing, yahoo etc. They index almost all links. But they don’t have any ranking system like google page rank. So most of the people want’s to get backlink for google to get good page rank. And page rank helps to get good search rank. So at the end i will say Blogger should comments on other’s blogs. Because if you comment on other they will do same for you. And that’s the main goal of web 2. Thanks

      CERTAINLY. Back-link doesn’t only increase the Google’s indexing but it also bring more visitors. Both way it’s good.
