Proper commenting on dofollow blogs is key to maintaining those links long term. Leaving bad comments is sure to result in not getting those incoming links. Here are two more types of comments that I will delete.
Dofollow Blog Commenting
First of all, here’s to a happy and prosperous 2010 to you!
Over the last few weeks, I have been going through the comments on the blog, and deleting a ton of them.
For those of you who have made great comments – thank you, and I’m sorry your great comments have been over shadowed by the all too many crappy comments that seem to dominate popular do follow blogs.
My goal is to login each day and delete the comments that need to be deleted. This is not my favorite task, and a task that adds no money to my pocket, but it needs to be done daily. Bear with me if I miss a few days.
After reading through a lot of comments, I am seeing a trend of comments that I will be deleting.
First, I have seen a lot of comments similar to “Do follow blogs is a great thing in the field of SEO.” or “Thanks for the DoFollow blog list”. These are comments that I have allowed in the past, but I will no longer be allowing.
This type of comment is relevant, but it is too short and does not really add any value to the blog comments. It suggest you really do read the post you are commenting on, and then leave 2-3 sentences of content that are relevant and make sense if you want your comment approved.
I have also seen a lot of those commenting leaving links in their comments. If you have read my dofollow blog comment rules, you will find that I do not allow links in the comments.
Here is the rule:
“4. Don’t use your comments to list every website you own. After leaving some good comments, don’t blatantly advertise your other websites. I’m already giving you an incoming link with your selected anchor text. If you add additional websites, I probably won’t approve your comments.
If you add a website in the comments that is directly related to the discussion, even if it’s yours, I will allow it. If I think you are just trying to get more links, I won’t allow it.”
I am already giving you a dofollow link with your chosen keyword text in the title, don’t take advantage of me by trying to get one in the comment text. Unfortunately, I have deleted some good comments because they included a link in their comment, advertising another of their websites. The only exception is if the website is relevant to the topic and contains information what will help others. I have found that this is rarely the case.
So remember, keep the comments good – about 2-3 sentences related to the blog post topic, and don’t include links in the comments and you will probably be approved, giving you a long term incoming link.
In a few days I will be posting about how the Followlist.com Dofollow Blog List is about to get even better.
