There have been a number of updates in the algorithm of search giant Google and Yahoo’s CEO Marissa Mayer have also made number of significant changes. They are more concentrated about providing quality results to users and so the simple world of SEO has become a lot more complicated.

As Google have declared content as the King, getting dofollow links from blogs is like travelling miles without any vehicle. This post is concentrated on how to do blog commenting and what measures to check for getting a dofollow link from blogs.

There are number of things that you must check on a blog while making a comment if your want link juice from that content. Let’s start from very beginning.

How to Make a Search

If you are using Search Engines as your tool for searching blogs that give you dofollow links then you must know a few really good scripts that show your desired blog posts. Make a search query with a keyword+“script” (for example mobile applications “please enter the code you see in the image”). Then limit the searches to blog from the menu bar of search engine. Since most of good blogs closes commenting after a week or more so again limit the search results to a certain period.

What to Check in Blogs

Click on multiple links and for each and every blog check a few criteria for making comments.

  • Check the PR of the blog (It should be equal or greater than your website PR).
  • What is the traffic of the blog? (high traffic shows high-quality)
  • How recent the posts are made (blogs that makes post frequently are good quality)
  • The relevance of the blog to your website.
  • Does the blog allow commenting with option of website or HTML tags in comment?

Now How to Make a Comment

This is one of the most important things that must be kept in mind while writing a comment. Google’s distinguished engineer “Matt Cutts” in his recent interviews have cleared that Google hates spamming, so try to make a comment as part of conversation of the post.

Do not post information related to your product or services. Try to make a simple and nice comment that goes with the topic of discussion and instead of your name give your keyword and the URL of desired landing page. Update: SE now considers it as spamming the only option left to you is second one.

The second method is to make a relevant comment that might be helpful to readers with link in it (in those blogs that allows HTML in comments you will get link with your desired anchor text) and give your real details in the field.

Do you Think are you Done?

If you think that you are done and got a quality dofollow link for your website then you are wrong. Maximum blogs that gives dofollow links do not publish your comments as you submit it, the moderators review them and publishes only if they find it relevant and interesting for the post.
