Blog commenting is a really effective way of building links back to your site.However, the comment must be helpful and you need to participate.Itīs not enough to post something like "good post" or "thanks for sharing".Getting a comment on a blog is not automatic, every comment is moderated.

The key to good commenting is relevance and connectivity of the commentator to the blogger.

Default Nofollow

Tom you might want to check out the nofollow option and deal with that, too.

Hi Simon, it really does not matter if the blog is "no follow" or not.As long as you write an excellent comment to the blog post, people will check out your site as well.

Talking Blog commenting is an effective way to get traffic..

I comment on some blogs strictly because I follow them daily and I comment and some of them have high traffic and I definitely get clicks to my website through comments I leave irregardless of the name I use, people just click on things out of curiosity and if your comment is good.

So I suggest leaving your comments all the time because you never know who is going to click through your links. Just contribute to the conversation and state your opinion well and you will find people clicking through alot.

Default Tom - I don't agree

I'm thinking in the context of getting inbound links to your blog. NOFOLLOW links don't count as far as google is concerned. Obviously people might follow a link of any kind but not Google.

I agree with this. The internet is such a competitive place that anything helps, especially linking. Most of the blog sites that I've read have very constructive responses, this is probably due to the moderating though. As a traffic building tactic? Luke warm at best.

One other note about blog commenting. Most blogs have a "no follow" snipet of code on them that effectively blocks any kind of link juice that might have come from blog comments.

Blog commenting does work... but it takes work. Its tons of hours to comment, however, you get feedback in the end ... its like.. the number of comments you make = the comments you get back.

Now a days blog comments are used as a source to generate more and more traffic. But it will be fruitful only if relevant and useful information is placed as a comment rather than just nice post and great article.
