Types of blogs: Nofollow and Dofollow Blogs

All blogs are divided into nofollow and dofollow. Blogs which are providing dofollow links is known as Dofollow blogs. And blogs which are providing nofollow links are known as Nofollow blogs.
There are many browser extensions, plugins or tools are available to check nofollow or dofollow links. I am using SEOquake extension to check dofollow and nofollow links.
Ethics of Blog Commenting:
In old days blog commenting was not that famous, as it mostly gives nofollow links. And nofollow links do not have that much value when it comes to search engine ranking. Even many bloggers disabled comments on their blogs.
In old days link building was the most prominent task in building backlinks, but then Google starts penalizing websites for doing link building to get backlinks and search engine ranking.
Nowadays blog commenting is in boom mostly because of bloggers. Bloggers also aware of this nofollow and dofollow links types but they believe that sharing a link via blog commenting will give more exposure to their blog.
And it really happens, sharing links via blog commenting do helps your blog to grow more. It will generate backlinks for your blog including regular visitors and real audience to your blog.
- Blog commenting should be on blogs related to your blog niche only.
- Before commenting on any article you must read it properly and then comment related to that article only. You can share your view about it, any suggestions about it, any tips or experience regarding that article topic, something which you think can also be added in that article.
- Never comment short replies like “thanks for sharing”, “interesting article” all these kind of comments are ignored by bloggers.
- If you want to generate backlinks for any particular blog post, make a search related to that specific topic, after getting an article related to that same topic, write your in-depth comment after reading that article, it should be a genuine comment.
- Using gravatar icon while commenting supposed to be better than having no profile image. Add your own image with a face, it will have more chances to get accepted then a blank image or your brand image.
- While commenting always use your own real name in the name section. Do not fill in your blog name or brand name in the name section. Adding keyword in name section do not get accepted these days. So better go with your real name instead.
- Do not add your blog link or article links inside your comment. As it has 90% chances to get rejected or it can trigger your comment into spam section.
- Always try to make an impact with your comment. A short comment is never considered worth reading or accepting. So writing a lengthy and in-depth comment always helpful in making an impact and attracts more readers.
So avoid all those things which can make your comment a spam. Consider all above-mentioned ethics before commenting on any blog and you will get good quality backlinks to your blog.
