    You can certainly siphon off people from the blogs that you comment on to check out your blog and hopefully comment. As regards getting any SEO benefit, doubtful unless the comments are do-follow.

    Something you should look for is blogs with the 'Top Commentators' widget enabled on the blog.

    Why? Simply because, if you are one of the top commenter's one the blog, your link will be displayed on the homepage + inner pages. Most of the time, these links are do-follow.

    Just me but I rarely comment on any blogs.

    Just too time consuming to be commenting on blogs for the return.

    Did try someone once who would put comments on blogs for me.
    Results were poor to say the least.

    I have a list of .edu blogs and geesh, the idea was to start commenting on them.
    But 1500?
    I quit after about 4 days.

    IMO, commenting on blogs is like submitting to directories.

    You might be asking this question to yourself, “Why should I even bother with commenting then?” Because you want to get noticed! Posting comments like “nice post!” will not get you noticed. You want to add value into the discussion, and that will get the author of the blog to notice you. Ask good questions or let the author know about something that was missing in the post. Those two are just basic ideas.
    I agree. I don't think blog commenting is that useful for gaining page rank; it would be to easy for spammers. It is more useful for SEO purposes, and it also helps build your brand and credibility like you said.

    Nice idea! But you have to be patient and comment a lot on the same blog to do this. I guess if the blog site has high PR then the benefit would outweigh your efforts.

    I'd stay away from it unless you actually have something to say and genuinely want to read the blog and comment on it. Return on time investment is typically very low, Google has become better at detecting it, and both blog owners and their anti-spam tools have become better at detecting and filtering this stuff. Of course, a lot of blogs may use a no-follow tag, and should in my opinion, unless they deliberately want to engage in link love sharing via the link love wordpress plugin.

    Then there's the fact that it is downright creepy and annoying. Imagine running a blog with this top commenters list and then find out that one of your most "loyal" commenters is there just to leech link juice off of you, not because he's actually genuinely interested in what you have to say as you might have thought. What a fraud, and a rip off.

    That said, the same probably applies to forum posting, and we see a lot of that going on here at NetBuilders, even in this very thread. It's a freaking epidemic, yet it is next to pointless! Not only is it obviously incredibly annoying, but you're not really gaining anything with it.

    I wish internet marketeers stopped being spammers, once and for all. Everyone who uses spam is really just trying to get unearned traffic, and often committing the immoral act of property infringement and fraud. Non-genuine blog commenting and forum posting is dead, or at least should be.

    95+% of comments on my blogs are pure spam, no matter how you look at them.
    It is spam if you just say some idiotic line like "great post, will tell my friends."

    Same goes on forums.
    I admin at forums and I will tell you, you post some inane post like "I like this information", "Wow, great article"?
    I delete and I tend to hit the ban button if that is all you post.

    One day in the near future, there will be no signature links in forums (except those spam forums).
    All links will be no follow (forums, blogs, site, etc.).
