What Is Blog commenting?
Blog commenting is one of the commonly utilized methods of link building. It is a simple method that a few people have found prolific for creating one-way backlinks. It involves writing a comment to express your thoughts or feelings after reading an article or a blog. To make sure that your blog commenting efforts are fruitful you need the following.
A list of quality blogs in your niche
If you have a weight loss blog, for instance, the most valuable backlink would come from a high authority weight loss blog. Numerous people prefer adding a comment to a blog that has a high page rank (PR). To know a site’s PR you may use a Google PR Checker shown below.
There are many other free tools on the internet too. Compiling a blog list is not enough. You need to find Do-follow blogs and not No-follow blogs if your sole concern is building backlinks. A Do follow blog permits search engines to crawl toward the linked web pages while a No-follow blog does not. If you add a comment to a Do follow blog with a high PR and wonderful content, your blog’s page rank is also likely to improve.
Your personal identity
The simplest way to comment is using a name. Whether to use a real or fake name is your choice. Using your real name may be necessary when you want the readers you attract to trust you. If you do not want to use any name, many blogs give you an anonymous option as well. Another way that most of us prefer is use of a keyword that would make our blogs easy to locate. Prior to posting a blog comment using a keyword, find out if this complies with the site’s terms and conditions.
Your site’s URL link
This is a very important item to have when writing and posting blog comments. It directs search engine bots to your site.
Your email address
Many blogs ask you to provide an email address but they promise not to publish it. Whether this promise is true or false is only known to the blog owner. Just above the submit button you are asked to check boxes that ask you to either subscribe to a blog post and a blog newsletter among other things.
A blog message
It is easy for you to be perceived as a spammer if your message looks sloppy and totally unrelated to the article you are commenting about. The best way to write beneficial comments is to read an article first so as to understand what the blog author is talking about.
Just like article marketing, a blog commenting job can be done manually or with software. I personally prefer to read and write a comment manually to build my traffic organically. Many people are too busy to afford writing manual comments themselves. The best thing is to hire a high quality freelancer team/individual to do the job. There is a likelihood of paying only 0.5 dollars on big freelancer sites for a comment of 20 to 50 words long. I am a freelancer myself and I will be posting dofollow blogs lists here soon.
Thanks for reading.
