As many webmasters know backlinks help the search engine determine what your site is about. The more backlinks you have from various web sites the better your site is ranked in Google, Yahoo, and MSN. The links also need to come from relevant sites as well to help the search engine determine what your site is about. In this article I am going to be talking about the importance of blog commenting to build backlinks to your site.
First and foremost, backlinks pay a huge part in Google and Bing’s eyes. It has been argued that backlinks are not as important in Yahoo, but this is debatable. When Google sees your backlinks it considers the quantity and quality of the links you have obtained from other sites. However, you do need to include your anchored text in the title in hopes that it will catch Google’s eye and boost your site in the organic searches.
However, there are hundreds of ways in order to get backlinks. I want to talk about blog commenting and how you can obtain “one way” backlinks to your site. (One way links are the most powerful type of backlinks, according to Google)
Dofollow and Nofollow
First, I want to talk about nofollow links because there has been a lot of hype over these over the last couple of years. Nofollow links are links that do not carry any weight according to Google. While Google is not the only search engine, it does carry the majority of the search queries. This just means that any links that are using the nofollow tag are not going to carry any weight.
Next, Dofollow links are the complete opposite to nofollow links. These links do carry weight, and you can inherit the pagerank from a page that has your link on it. Needless to say, both dofollow and nofollow backlinks are good links to get. However, I would highly recommend getting more dofollow backlinks than nofollow backlinks.
So How Does Blog Commenting Work?
Blog commenting has been around for a long time now. The key to blog commenting is to leave a intelligent comment and then a backlink to your site. Do not make the mistake of just saying “good post here is my site.” That is lame and most webmasters will just ignore it. Make sure you add something of value to the blog and leave your backlink. Blog commenting can do wonders for your web traffic.
