Default Links from blogs

Hello, links from blogs and forums can definitely help your site. What's most important about a link from another site is that the site has something to do with your website... i.e industry or content. For example, if you were running a furniture site, a link from some type of furniture association site would be worth more than a link from a site having to do with SEO.

I don't know for sure that a post would be discredited for bad grammar or spelling, but the words surrounding a link are important, so it's best they have something to do with the page they are linking too, and yes, I suppose if you used the king's english that would be a plus.
