Posted on August 29, 2008 - by Kelly Verge
I’m always on the lookout for new or easier ways to find sources for backlinks. One somewhat standard method of gaining backlinks is to comment on blogs where they don’t have nofollow set on their comments (although as I’ve said, I wouldn’t be too hasty in discounting nofollow links, either).
Anyway, I found a small but growing search engine that will give you a list of blogs that are dofollow as well as those who use either the Top Commenter plugin or the CommentLuv plugin for WordPress.
Top Commenter is often used to give a prominent backlink for the people with the most comments in a given period. It’s designed to encourage repeat comments by rewarding them with backlinks. Often this plugin will be enabled even when the link within the comment is nofollow.
CommentLuv inserts a link to your latest blog post in the bottom of your comment.
While it’s possible to build a Google search to look for these things, it’s often easier to just bookmark a site and use it instead of remembering the syntax for a search string.
The site is called DoFollow Diver and it’s at http://linkbuildingbible.com/dofollowdiver/.
Please remember – if a blog owner has turned off nofollow, they are making an effort to help us with our promotion. The only thing we have to do in return is to make real comments to their blog posts. Please don’t leave spammy comments such as “nice post” or such. Eventually this type of comment might make a blog owner rethink their decision to give backlinks, and this would hurt all of us.
