    Do-Follow Blog Commenting Does Not Work

    Last year, I paid a dofollow blog commenting service $230 for 1,000 comments on 500 blogs.

    Also last year, I paid a nice Malaysian fellow $5/hr to comment on blogs for a number of my sites. He put in about 300 hours writing unique and relevant blog comments.

    Very recently, I paid another fellow $125 for comments on 3PR6, 7PR5, 10PR4, 12PR3, 15PR2, and 15PR1 dofollow blogs.

    I did not see any effect from the two tests I ran last year. I have yet to see any effect from the test I ran recently. The site I promoted actually received zero visitors for the last two days.

    I hate to cause people trouble, and I know the blog comment sellers are doing a great job at blog commenting, but I have to tell all NetBuilders:
    It appears that Google is ignoring all links from blog comments -- even DOFOLLOW blogs!

    I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

    I've read the same thing a few days ago, but that wasn't just an article on a blogspot blog so I didn't really believe it. Maybe because of this message blog posts will be much lower now

    But thanks for explaining, I just find it cool if I receive just '1' hit from somewhere, that's another extra free hit.. but indeed it isn't worth a lot if you pay for it

    Well G doesn't ignore blog comments. It definitely ignores if you have links coming in from only dofollow blogs. The comments should appear natural to them. Combination of dofollow and nofollow.. It should be a blend of both. The do-follow concept is just hyped and not worthy.

    Just hire a good blog commenter who can comment sensibly no matter what the follow up is. Relevant comments fetches you traffic and backlinks as well.

    After all Google is the king. And they can detect foul play in no time. And pure dofollow links is nothing more than a monopoly in the link market.

    I am a blog commenter myself. You can see my successful thread at Dp in here:

    I think in combination of mixing them up no follow and do follow is it very important that the links be in the comments. 300 people named say SEO all with the same home page is not good. Even if you can add live links to the comments then you don't anchor text and all the comments would need to be different. Like the one service be offered now that took part in the comments were probably all the same even though the name (anchors) were different but all still came to the same site. So this wouldn't have a positive effect.

    I am no SEO person but these are my thoughts on this. Since Google keeps updating its making it much harder to get new sites established though these methods anymore. So wonder what the next best method will be now that directory and blog promotions are out the window.

    My challenge is your link is to be on a relevant site but if you are promoting a SEO site will another SEO related site really put your link there since its the competition.

    I'd like to see some effect, any positive effect, from blog commenting. But I just haven't seen it.

    The only way that blog commenting pays is when you go on a blog with high traffic which relates to your niche and you make real comments and on an ongoing basis you connect with the visitors on that blog. I am not sure that you do get a Google benefit from that, but you will get visitors.

    I'd disagree to some extent, Will. They're not very effective but not a waste either. Probably, we have purchased do-follow service from same provider recently. And I still need to see its effect. However, I used niche do-follow commenting and it actually WORKED. I get traffic (2-3 from some blogs) everyday. Though it's not significant but rankings have improved.

    Though need to make sure what's the percentage contribution of do-follow comments because I'm running article marketing campaign as well.

    I agree with Mike on niche blogs and quality and post related comments.. That's what make people click..

    I am big fan of blog commenting. However its not important to me if blog is dofollow or not.

    I have blog comments that are giving me 15 hits daily to some of my sites. If you want that blog commenting work, you must by my oppinion give relevant comments.
    But relevant content to some deep link of yours rather then a home site or category.

    I like to comment on blogs that have Latest comment links on sidebar. Since then if you find relativly not visited blog with high PR, your comment can stay few months on their frontpage and basicly with one comment you are getting sitewide link

    For example PR4 IT blog on Serbian language
    itdogadjaji.com scroll down, and for over few days my comment is last one.

    However since it would be not fair that you use people sites just for comment try to give them meaningfull answer and things will work. I have list of my own with maybe hundred of blogs which of I visit everyday maybe 10 and leave comment. And you just visit their blogrolls and ad valuable sites to your list... When I get 500 blogs then I will stop adding them, just will change weaker for the better ones.

    However blog commenting is time consuming, and neither one hired person can do it like you can!

    When I leave a blog comment on something I am interested in people usually follow me back to my blog. Were the comments preceived as spam?

    I am confused a bit Will, I just don't want to slap you on the butt and say "great job" every time you post. But you stated that Google seems to be ignoring all links from blog comments. If you look at the blogs inner pages, regardless if the blog is a PR6 or 1, the innerpage will have a rank of zero. As an innerpage matures and receives value the rank may increase. At that time the blog comment link will be of more value to you. I disagree with the previous poster also in the aspect of the anchor text should be the same for each individual page you are trying to promote.

    Most people fail to realize that Google gives PR value to individual webpages not to their overall site. You stated that you paid $125.00 for 62 blog comments on a variety of high blogs ranging from PR6 to PR1. If you wanted to see a quicker impact in rankings, next time pay for a spot on 62 blogrolls which will give you juice from everypage the blog has, from the pr6 all the way down to the PR0.

    Will, did you only have links from blog comments in your tests, or also other links to mix in?
    I think they contribute a bit of value in the total mix of links. Even if they don't it helps diversify your link portfolio.
