How To Find CommentLuv Enabled Blogs In Your Niche

Perhaps I will sound like a broken record but I have seen direct benefits of using CommentLuv since the day it was first released by Andy Bailey and been a vocal supporter and described some of the usage options in my previous posts:

But How Do You Actually Find Blogs With CommentLuv Enabled and relevant to your Niche? Because this is where you will see most benefits from links to your content, especially since Google decided to ignore “nofollow” attribute that they invented!

Google is your friend and while I’m sure more “elaborate” search can be performed to get the job done, here is an example of search string I would personally use to locate a blogs with CommentLuv enabled in “home decor” Niche:

home decor & “title=”CommentLuv Enabled””

Idea here is quite simple and requires that you use 2 attributes:

  1. Your main keyword or key phrase used by blogs you want to find, such as home decor in example above and
  2. Forcing to sort those blogs by including only blog that have following attribute “title=”CommentLuv Enabled”” – double quote seem to work best for me to ensure nothing is missed as it forces Google to search for a very specific HTML code that you would see when doing a View Source option on commentluv enabled blog at the end of comment form.
  3. & attribute is required to tie them together and ensure that BOTH present in Search Engine results

Please be advised that this is not the 100% guaranteed way to find it because Google returns results of the pages it has scanned and saved in Search Index and some of them quite old. Since bloggers are a strange bunch who likes to change things up – CommentLuv might have been already removed from their plugins.

Just keep it in mind and once you find a blog you need – add it to your own list of blogs and comment frequently to get the incoming links benefits!

    I’ve just tried this method. This is really cool and effective way in finding blogs in your niche where Comment Luv is enabled.:) Thank you very much Alex!!!

    Now I am beginning to find Christian blogs with Comment Luv.:)

  2. Brilliant idea! Why didn’t I think of that? Using search engines will turn up blogs that have not been added to the many lists and tools available. I collected as many as I could find and put them in a DoFollow list and tool post that stays in my Recently Popular section. I used it as the link to this comment so you can visit it instantly.

    Any blogger interested in attracting other CommentLuv blogs may want to spend some time adding their blog(s) to these lists and tools. The more ways you can be found the more traffic you will receive. Many seeking Comment Luv enabled blogs are going to be using Comment Luv too.

    I plan to eventually make a list of specific CommentLuv blogs to visit and comment in regularly in my niche. I recommend all other bloggers do the same. If you use the strategy I wrote about in my Traffic Up 54.87% post (also in the Recently Popular section) your comments and other’s posts will greatly contribute to the success of BOTH blogs.

    • I just tested and this also works in other search engines including my favorites DuckDuckGo and Zuula. I like to use the Zuula blog search function to eliminate non-blog results. I just wish Zuula would add DuckDuckGo as a search engine option so I could have the best of both worlds!

      Thanks for the additional tips.

      I like the lists but what I have found is that most of them become outdated very fast. If someone could come up with a dynamic list – it would be greatly appreciated by community.

      m surprised Andy Bailey haven’t done it. I think I mentioned it once when he featured my blog few month ago as an interview

  3. It is a really nice way to find them but as you say it is not a be all solution. Google will return some crap when you search like that but at least there are some great gems in between.

    I must say the first time I commented on your blog was from searching for Palm Pre videos, commenting and getting CommentLuv was just a bonus and thanks for that.
    Is commentluv always no-follow? I ask because a few blogs I have commented on also let you edit after and I see the link has no-follow added.

    What a great post! I’ve been looking for CommentLuv + dofollow blogs lately for Internet marketing and have found quite a few new friends. Alex you’re a wonderful example of this. Folks have come to my site from your blog and have even left comments. Keep the great content coming!

  7. Alex, excellent exploit!

    It reminds me of the Squidoo one that lets you get listings on squidoo lenses and the youtube one that returns videos you can comment on….

    Thanks for the info. That search string didn’t work very well for me though. I found ‘home decor & intext:”CommentLuv Enabled”‘ to be more effective…
