I Will Send You Tweets of DoFollow Blogs

I will be sending Twitter Tweets of blogs in the Followlist.com DoFollow Blog directory that I have verified to be DoFollow. This is good news for you if you are looking for DoFollow blogs to comment on.

I have made another change to the Followlist.com DoFollow Blog Directory.

I will be sending Twitter Tweets of blogs in the directory that I have verified to be DoFollow.

This is good news for you if you are looking for DoFollow blogs to comment on.

Unfortunately, some blogs in the DoFollow list are actually nofollow blogs. In order to cleanup the directory and weed out dead blogs and nofollow blogs, I have asked users to report those blogs as they come across them.

In addition, I am randomly reviewing blogs in the directory a number of times a day. As I come across valid dofollow blogs, I will tweet you about them. If they are not dofollow, I will be suspending them.

So, when you follow my Twitter Tweets, you will know that blogs mentioned in those tweets have been verified as being dofollow.

If you have a blog in the DoFollow Blog Directory that has been verified to be a dofollow blog, I will be tweeting your blog.

Initially, I thought about tweeting new blogs as they were submitted to the Followlist.com dofollow blog list, but that would not have been fair to those who have been a member of the list for some time.

So, I will be randomly choosing blogs throughout the day that are dofollow and are family appropriate. All dofollow blogs will be tweeted about once, until all are done, and then I will start the process again.

So, follow me at http://twitter.com/dofollowblogs and keep a look out for your blog.

By the way, if you discover that your blog is no longer in the directory, it is probably because it was tagged as a nofollow blog. The database still contains your blog information, and your blog can be added back into the dofollow list if you make your blog dofollow. Just contact me at my Helpdesk and let me know your blog is now dofollow and provide me with your blog link. If I verify that your blog is dofollow, I will add it back into the directory.

Please Report Non DoFollow Blogs

You can now report blogs in the followlist.com dofollow blog directory that are nofollow blogs. This will help make the Followlist.com DoFollow Blog Directory, the best DoFollow Blog Directory – and keep it free!

This has been a little late in coming, but you can now report blogs, in the Followlist.com DoFollow Blog Directory, that are not dofollow.

Since it is impossible for me to monitor all the blogs in the directory, I need your help flagging those blogs. Below each blog, you will see a “Report Blog As DoFollow or Inappropriate” link.

Clicking on this link will open a new window that will allow you to submit that blog for review. I will then review the blogs and either suspend them from the blog list, or okay them as being dofollow and appropriate.

Suspended blogs will no longer be shown in the directory. Blogs that I okay will remain in the directory, but will have been identified as having been reported in the past.

As you are visiting blogs in the dofollow blog list, please report blogs that are nofollow, are not family friendly, or go to a dead site.

When flagging a site you think it is nofollow, please make sure you have actually looked at comments on the blog and have made sure those comments are indeed nofollow.

Here are some ways to find out if the blog comment links are dofollow or nofollow.

Thank you for your help in making the Followlist.com DoFollow Blog Directory, the best DoFollow Blog Directory – and keeping it free!

Deleting Dofollow Blog Comments

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.

Dofollow Blog Backlink Traffic

Is generating dofollow blog backlink traffic really worth the time and effort that it takes to make quality comments on dofollow blogs?  Does it really work?

I am a strong advocate of dofollow blogs, which is why I blog about it, and I can tell you that my experience tells me that it does work.  This blog is a perfect example.

Following are some of the dofollow blog keywords that this blog ranks for Google.

dofollow blogs (Ranks 5 out of 340,000 Results)
dofollow blog list (Ranks 3 out of 1,210,000 Results)
do follow blogs (Ranks 9 out of 80,400,000 Results)
do follow blog (Ranks 3 out of 60,200,000 Results)
do follow blog list (Ranks 4 out of 37,300,000 Results)
do follow blogs list (Ranks 2 out of 42,600,000 Results)
dofollow blog (Ranks 7 out of 460,000 Results)

Furthermore, my Alexa ranking has been dropping steadily and now stands at the 70,709th most popular site on all of the internet.  You need to take Alexa rankings with a grain of salt, but I have seen my blog traffic stats increase as my Alexa rank has dropped.

The great thing is, I haven’t really done anything special to obtain these rankings.  Here is all I have done.
1.  I made the blog dofollow.
2.  I submitted one article to Ezinearticles about dofollow blogging.
3.  I created one video, that is a spoof of the history of dofollow blogs.
4.  I submitted my site to my dofollow blog list.
5.  I have commented on other dofollow blogs.

I can’t tell you how many dofollow blogs I have commented on, because I haven’t tracked it. I can tell you it hasn’t been all that many – less than 30 I would guess.

There is no reason you shouldn’t me able to increase your blog traffic by following the simple steps above.

Here are a couple of more tips that should help you.
1.  Write good, unique content.
2.  When commenting on dofollow blogs, add quality comments.
3.  Vary your link text when commenting on dofollow blogs.
4.  Don’t always link to your main blog post.  Link to specific posts within your blog to get some deep links to individual posts.
5.  Comment on 3 dofollow blogs every day, or so.  That would give you 30 dofollow backlinks in one month, you could have 360 backlinks in a year.
6.  Comment on different dofollow blogs.  Commenting on the same dofollow blogs over and over will not do you as much good as commenting on different blogs on different domains.

Okay, get out there and start building your traffic by creating backlinks from dofollow blog comments.

Let me stress, as I always do, you must make quality comments, related to the post.  If you don’t, your comment will not be approved, or will be deleted.

Happy blogging!

Mike

DoFollow Blog Lists Not Always Accurate

How accurate are dofollow blog lists? Most dofollow blog lists contain blogs that are actually nofollow. If you check blogs on these lists using the SEO for Firefox extension before you comment on blogs you have probably already discovered this.

How accurate are dofollow blog lists?

Most dofollow blog lists contain blogs that are actually nofollow.  If you check blogs on these lists using the SEO for Firefox extension before you comment on blogs you have probably already discovered this.

If you don’t check the blogs before you comment, I’ll leave it up to you to decide if it’s worth your time to check them out or not.

I’ve had a couple of people who have commented on this blog, questioning me about why some of the dofollow blog lists are so inaccurate.

Following are their comments:

“Hello there, I agree with the thing that is not all that easy finding real do follow blogs, I always try to search blogs related to my websites but most of the times this kind of blogs don’t seem to be do follow, so I have to search any type of blog and definitely that is not an easy task.”

“What I really want to know is why when sometimes I search for Do Follow blogs, then when I access to some blog I realize that is not dofollow? so why is this kind of blogs in those lists? That’s because the list is not updated? Or which is the real reason?”

There are three main reasons why some blogs on dofollow blog lists are nofollow.

1. They were dofollow when they were put on the dofollow blog list, but after receiving too much spam they go went to nofollow, and were never removed from the list. It’s very time consuming, if not impossible, to keep these lists up to date unless users of the lists are reporting the blogs as being nofollow to the owners of the lists.

There is also a lesson to be learned here – Always, always, always leave good quality comments that are relevant to the post.

2.  The blog owner may be using a plugin like Lucia’s Linky Love that will turn your comments to dofollow after a certain number of your comments have been approved.

For example the blog owner may set the number of approved comments to be five.  So, you may look at comments on the blog and they appear to be nofollow, but the person who made the comment may have only posted one comment so their link hasn’t been set to dofollow yet.

The blog may actually be dofollow but it doesn’t appear that it is. I would look on the blog for their dofollow rules, or look for references to comment plugins like Lucia’s Linky Love.  Many comment plugins will have a little advertisement for their plugin at the top or bottom of the comments box.

3. They blog was never dofollow, and it was not checked when it was put on the list. I’m sure some blog owners have tried to get their nofollow blogs put on these dofollow lists to get more traffic. It’s important that the list owner check these blogs when they are placed on the list, but I’m sure some are not checking.

So, how accurate it my dofollow blog list?  Unfortunately, I can’t guarantee that all blogs on it are dofollow.  I do check the blogs when they are placed on the list, but blog owners can go back to nofollow and I will never know, unless a user let’s me know about it.

So, like all dofollow blog list owners, I need you to help me maintain an accurate list.

Backlinks From The DoFollow Blog Directory

Now you get another dofollow backlink from the FollowList.com dofollow blog directory – and you don’t have to do anything to get it. If your blog is not dofollow yet, it should be. You can find out more about dofollow blogs here.

Now you get another dofollow backlink from the FollowList.com dofollow blog directory – and you don’t have to do anything to get it 🙂

If your blog is not dofollow yet, it should be. You can find out more about dofollow blogs here.
After you have changed your blog to dofollow, I suggest you add it to my dofollow blog directory.

Adding your blog to the directory will help those looking to post on your blog, find your blog. Plus you get a dofollow backlink from the directory.

DoFollow Blog Directory
Now, when you add your blog to my dofollow blog directory, you will also get a dofollow link from EFixx.com.

EFixx.com is a social bookmarking, voting site similar to Digg, that is dofollow enabled.

All blogs in the FollowList blog directory are automatically being imported into the EFixx.com, DoFollow Digg Clone. You don’t have to do anything, this is being done automatically.

DoFollow Digg Clone

Note: If you don’t see your blog in the EFixx.com listings, it just means it hasn’t been imported yet, but it will. I want the EFixx Digg clone service to import the blogs slowly, over time, to appear as natural as possible, to get Google to love it – making your backlink more valuable.

I have big plans for your links in the dofollow blog directory, adding them to EFixx is just the first step. I have plans to have them added to several other Digg clone sites (maybe even your own Digg clone site) to increase your backlink exposure.

By the way, feel free to add all your blog posts to EFixx.com, to get a backlink to those posts. You simply register at the DoFollow Digg Clone site and submit links to your blog posts, articles, and even your websites.

Next time I will need to talk about getting the most from the data you provide the dofollow blog directory.
