Easy link building with blog comments
Link building is the hottest topic in search engine optimization. But discovering easy to use sources for good links becomes a more difficult task.
Why link building?
Links are the internet´s currency. A link from one side to another is a sort of recommendation. If a website gains many such recommendations, it will raise in the search engines result pages (SERP). This increases visibility of the site.
With increasing visitors, the reputation and also the revenue of a page goes up. It does not matter whether the site does sell something itself or it makes money with adds.
A smart webmaster therefore should strive to get such recommendations much as possible. But that is no easy task anymore.
What options do I have?
You can build links to your site in different ways. Some rely on a lot of hand made entries and send emails to the webmasters of other interesting sites. These sites must be investigated first and then the webmasters be persuaded to issue such a recommendation. Often this is only be done in exchange for trade, such as a link exchange or a link for payment. Both methods are unwanted by Google and are not tolerated if they are detected.
Some link builders place their links in forums and other sites. They put them into more or less meaningless comments or text snippets - a stupid sort of spam that can be found and removed easily. It does not offer any value to the spammed site and they get banned regularly.
A good idea is placing good blog (weblog) comments. Most bloggers offer the opportunity to provide articles with personal comments. These comments are almost always a good opportunity to post a link to your page.
The advantage of the blog comments is that they are usually read by humans. So they stand not only in the eyes of search engines, but they can help make real people visit the site directly. They provide thus recommendation and visitors!
One should not forget, posting comments to real blogs should provide a real and valuable content to the blogs post. Link builders should not just drop their advertising text there.That would be simply spam.
On the contrary, a useful and appropriate comment to the article is important. This gives the opportunity to present themselves as competent and community oriented person. Useful comments will be published in most times and stay for a long time on the internet. With such contributions, you can create a positive reputation while creating a solid foundation with links.
However, there is still something to note: Some blogs provide set their comment links with the "no follow" attribute. This means that the links work technically linked any link, but to the search engine robots this is a declaration that this link is not a recommendation, so they do not take it into account. In SEO circles, such inbound links are accepted, but they are not as popular as the "do follow" links, which are a genuine recommendation.
This is the point, where searching for blogs to place your comments on becomes very expensive. The first step is to find all interesting blogs on the topic.The next step is to investigate which of them have "do follow" links. Many SEOs would tell you, anything else is worthless.
