CommentLuv Plus DoFollow Equal Unlimited Link Love

Link building is a never ending process for the bloggers and everyone knows that the more incoming links we get – better we rank in SERP’s and more traffic we get. I have already previously wrote about CommentLuv plugin that help you do just that and what perhaps even better – do it by simply commenting on other blogs!

In this post I will discuss several important aspects to get it just right in order to receive greatest benefits not only in form of traffic but also getting DoFollow links to the deeper internal pages of your blog. I promise not to leave a stone unturned and get you all the info you need!

The entire concept is EXTREMELY simple – contribute quality comments to other blogs and in return get valuable links to your internal pages, in many cases with full PR juice!

But in order to implement the concept effectively it will require several things to be in place.

1. Install CommentLuv plugin (optional)

Not required by any means but I recommend you do install it. What CommentLuv does is that it parses the URL of the commenter, locates the feed and then posts last title from the commenter blog at the end of comment. Very effective way to increase participation on your blog by providing value to your commenters.

But the benefits of the plugin are limited to title if you are using default WordPress installation as it adds “nofollow” attributes to all links and No PR Juice is passed alone. I’m not going to get into DoFollow debate but just state that I’m strong believer in sharing PR with good commenters and yet, protecting my blog from crap comments. And I do that by using LuciaLinkyLove plugin that allows me to share Link PR with commenters based on predefined settings.

Now, that optional step will enhance your own blog but will not do much in getting incoming links!

2. Modify Your FeedBurner Account

As mentioned above – CommentLuv parses the RSS Feed and then gets the last post and provides link to it. Problem is – if you are using FeedBurner redirect – your title gets linked to the FeedBurner rss link and provides you with No SEO benefits. For the longest time I was tryig to figure out how to fix the problem until a little while back I have run into post that explained a very simple fix. Sorry, since then I lost the source but here is how you can fix it.

  • Login into your FeedBurner account.
  • Click on the Feed you want to edit
  • Under Analyze->FeedBurner Stats PRO uncheck “item link clicks”. What this will do – it will disable the tracking of the clicks on your RSS Feed title and turn the titles into direct links to your blog post (permalinks). See below
    feedburner_stats

This will cost you in terms of ability to know how many clicks your feed generated but common! What is more important – some stats or link love?!

Because it will also effectively make your last post title from the comment left on the blog with CommentLuv plugin support linked to permalink on your blog. Deep Link! And if that blog also supports DoFollow – superb way to get One Way Link!

Here are couple examples: 1st linked to feedburner url and second to the Author’s blog, which one would you like?

3. Locate Blogs With CommentLuv Support

While I know all about the importance of getting incoming links from blogs with similar topic or perhaps even from posts that have your target keywords – I always ask myself a question:

  • Would I refuse the opportunity to get a Free backlink To One Of My Deeper pages?

I think Not! And the easiest way to do it is by locating blogs that have support for CommentLuv. If some of them also support DoFollow – I consider myself hitting a gold mine and just have to go careful about mining it! Meaning – contribute the quality comments!

But first, lets get some blogs…

And no, I will not list any here. God knows there are already number of lists available that list blogs with CommentLuv Support. All you need to do is visit Google and do a search for a phrase: commentluv blogs. Just like I have shown and you will get quite a few results! You can also try: comentluv dofollow

All you got left is go there and start commenting, or is it?!

4. Make Your Best Posts Linked!

Unless you have time to go through those lists and comment on blogs after every post you create to get backlinks – I recommend you consider this simple strategy.

  • As you create posts for the week – pick one that will become the corner stone of content for that week.
  • This step will depend on your publishing schedule – if you publish every day, skip one day after publishing this post and instead concentrate on going to blogs with CommentLuv support and making comments. Even better if you eventually create your own list of blogs that are related to yours and perhaps second with blogs that are not related to yours but support CommentLuv and have DoFollow attribute enabled!
  • Do this at least once a week and you will see results.

And keep in mind – this strategy is based on busy schedule and only requires that you do the commenting on one specific day! Right after you publish your main post for the week and designed to maximize the results of that effort!

How Do You Determine if a Blog Is DoFollow or NoFollow?

I realize that not everyone might be versed in the concept explained here and provide simple visual representation of what it means.

Take for example my blog. As I have mentioned – my blog DoFollow attribute is controlled by Lucia Linky Love plugin, which will remove nofollow attribute from the link after 3 approved comments! This helps me battle the spam and rewards the regular commenters. See image below for an example with NoFollow:

nofollow

That covers the nofolow and when you simply look at the source of the link on target blog and you see like the image below – you know you hit that gold mine of DoFollow!

So, all you have to do is locate some blogs that support CommentLuv and DoFollow and begin getting some Link Love!

    Thanks guys,

  4. Good post. I use the Firefox SearchStatus Add-on to not only check if a site is a dofollow site, but to optimize my own site for leaking link juice.

  5. Joseph says:

    This is a very nice post, I have to save it and refer to it as soon as succeed in getting some sought of PR.

    I’m a staunch believer in do follow but right now my blog has a PR of zero and I know few bloggers will be interested in leaving a comment on my blog.

    You have provided very insightful tips for those of us who believe in rewarding genuine and useful comments left on our blogs while at the same time taking care of spam and I really do thank you for that.

    Thanks Alex!

    Another good post in support of reciprocal linking. I’m preaching the same message at the moment, as I see it as way to create a framework of similar themed blogs and bloggers too.

  11. Hey… my blog has a dofollow blogs search engine…. it only features blogs with dofollow…. it also has a tab for dofollow CommentLuv on the dofollow blogs….. So you just search for your keyword, and click the commentluv tab, and it’s blogs with dofollow links and dofollow commentluv.

  12. Great tip here – I think it’s especially important to remember to add valuable comments as you go about your link building. Whenever I get meaningless or unrelated comments they are either deleted or their link gets removed from their comment.

    Nice idea to focus on the commentluv blogs and pick up a deep link too. Doubles your productivity!

  14. Thanks a lot for the feedburner tip. I truly was not aware of that one (and I thought I new enough about this sort of thing). Going to have to re-read this post. Lots of great info on DoFollow as well as the terrific little plugin CommentLuv. There is another on called keyword love that is pretty cool. It allows you to combine your name with a keyword in the Name field. This way you get an anchor link but it’s a little friendlier (replies can be directed at the person’s name).

    thanks for the great article. I already have dofollow support on my blog but never thought about commentluv plugin although Ive seen it on a few blogs.

    Another thing I like that youve mentioned is linking to one of your popular posts. I always just leave a link to my main site but not this time lol.

    you’ve gained a new reader.
