In this post, I’m going to demonstrate how to get dofollow backlinks using CommentLuv.
I am essentially giving you a link building system that you can easily follow to give your blog extra traffic and build your pagerank over time.
As a blogger, you’ll understand the importance of actively link building around the content on your blog which you want to rank for and monetise. The challenge is finding links where:
- You don’t have a large time investment to build them.
- You don’t have masses of hoops to jump through to get them.
- You have control over the content page and the link’s destination page.
- You can target “dofollow” high pagerank sites to build your own pagerank.
Link building can be done by simply producing quality content and follow a few simple SEO principles which can also help you to attract some free Google traffic.
Step #1: Before You Begin… Download These Tools
If you’re using Firefox, you may wish to bookmark this page or subscribe to the RSS feed, so you can be sure you will not lose this page and can refer to it at a later date. You can easily favourite any blog posts with a good RSS Reader such as FeedDemon. I prefer the $20 pro version but you can get by quite nicely with the free version.
Step #2: Create New or Uncover Existing Content
You can either do this by:
- Uncovering some of your previously written content within your blog and choosing the keywords that you have already targeted and ranked for.
- Creating new content and doing thorough keyword research using a tool like Market Samurai to be certain you’re targeting the right keywords.
Make a note of the keywords that you’re choosing to target.
Step #3: Find Blogs That Use CommentLuv That Use Your Target Keywords
Do the following using Firefox with the awesome new add-ons that you’ve just installed. ;-)
Use the following search string to search for blogs that use CommentLuv and contain your keywords in their page/post title.
As you can see, the search string will find blogs using the CommentLuv system which contain the keywords “Make Money Online” within their page or post titles. Unless you’re Wikipedia, I don’t suggest you target those keywords.
This makes them extremely attractive blogs to get backlinks from since they’re already highly relevant. Any anchor text that you can achieve from these blogs will pass authority to your post.
Step #4: Confirm DoFollow or NoFollow Status
In the bottom right hand corner of your Firefox browser, you should see a symbol which I’ve displayed in the image below.
- Click the search result of the page you want to visit.
- Check to see if the blog post title within the CommentLuv link is in a highlighted in a grey box. If it is, this indicates that it is a dofollow link. Your objective is to find a link which does not have any highlighting. See the image as an example below.
Step #5: Find Posts Within a Site With a High Page Rank
Use the following search string to search for indexed content (pages/posts) and other taxonomies (categories/tags) within the “dofollow” site that you’ve discovered.
Click on the little down arrow in the Google part of the Quake toolbar. This will sort the results into pagerank order with the page with the highest pagerank at the top.
At this point, you’re looking for the highest ranking page that is not the home page to comment on. Most blogs will not allow comments on the home page.
Step #6: Visit the Page and Leave a Comment
To do this effectively, you should read and consider the contents of the post. Ask yourself the question:
What else might the readership need to know?
This question enables you to ask an insightful question which, when answered, would add value to the original post.
If you have specific knowledge on the subject, you may even choose to share that knowledge in that comment to add value to the post.
It is worth remembering that owners of blogs with high traffic and a good pagerank are likely to be more careful about the comments that they approve since they know that they’re more likely to receive spammy comments.
It is worth remembering at this point that I am not promoting comment spamming. I am simply saying to look for a win win situation where you can share wisdom, ask insightful questions, engage the blog owner’s readership and receive a quality backlink to your site in return.
I hope I’ve sold you on the importance of building links back to your site.
The beauty of this strategy is that it enables you to:
Put this into practice. Even better, schedule it as a regular habit in your Internet Marketing plan.
To Your Online Success,
The Profit Share
