We so frequently hear about abuse of blog comments, the argument between to follow and no follow back links and so forth that we forget the value and purpose of blog comments in the first place. Comments are there to create a conversation and allow readers to contribute thoughts and ideas to the authors post. Nearly every author appreciates honest contributions to their blog- even contributions that include opinions that differ from those of the author. There are methods to create beneficial and enjoyable content in blogs that also benefit you with the currency of the coveted back link.

SEO techniques by Dave Keys

Step One. Find a decent dofollow blog. Comment, but leave contextual, informative and even entertaining comments. There are still plenty of blogs that actually allow and encourage this. Many are quite generous. Spammers will be moderated out but the real conversations and valid observational comments with an interesting point of view are still very rare and will be welcomed by most moderators. Furthermore, comments that are well-written and conversational,  introducing new ideas and thoughts on the topic provide the relevant context for your back link. Yes, back links are the de facto currency of blogs and their comments, but that does not mean counterfeiting of that currency is going to help your cause. The purpose of comments is to create a conversation, engaging the author and readers–you know, just like people do at any real gathering weather at a coffee shop, a party or just hanging out on someone’s porch, shooting the breeze.

BONUS many times, a well crafted comment delivers more traffic to a website than the ranking search volume for where you end up in search results from comment links. There’s a real estate SEO Marketing tip that doesn’t require any link strategy at all.

Step Two. Once your comment is posted, submit the URL of your comment if available, or the URL of the blog itself to ping services like Pingler. This eventually alerts search engines to the notion that there must be a change or new content on the page.

Step 3. Take a break
