People still ask me a lot whether comment backlinks work. They want to know whether it is worth it to even bother with this SEO strategy.
Well, my short and simple answer is – yes, they definitely work and are worthwhile.
See, we all are constantly searching for the “shinny” new backlinking tactic on a consistent basis. Some may do it as frequently as every week or even more often.
That’s crazy and I have to tell you something. If you waste your time every day looking for the “no effort, no money required” make-money-online strategy, then you won’t succeed.
You need to stick with one method at least for some time to see some results.
Be different than the vast majority and actually put in some effort. Experiment! You never know what works for *YOU*.
Trust your intuition more. It’s necessary in business.
How I Got PR3 Under A Year
So I tried a new experiment for one of my niche blogs. This one is in the “DIY home solar panels” niche. It’s a green energy niche related to self-made solar panels for your home.
Anyway, so I went out and used blog commenting exclusively to test out this theory of ranking high in Google with only comment backlinks with the correct anchor text.
To be sure, anchor text is the essence of why websites are ranked high for particular search terms or keywords. That’s the case for me too.
Therefore, you need to be extra careful when putting in links into your blog comments.
So, the first thing I usually do is I do some “backlink spying”. I find all the places where I can leave a comment with the correct anchor text as a link.
Of course, not any blog will do suffice. I only choose the ones with PR2 and up to PR7 (if I can find them).
I know that some will argue that PR is not the only SEO measure. Well, it may not be the only one, but it still gives me a darn good impression on how valuable a blog comment backlink will be for me.
If you want to cut through the hassle, then stick with PR.
Well, after I’ve done some extensive research (not longer than a few hours), then I can head over to every blog I’ve got on my list and do the blog commenting. Not forgetting about the anchor text and links to my blog.
Then, when moderators have approved my comments (if there are any moderators), I can relax and see my rankings going up, thus giving me an extra surge in traffic and new subscribers.
Things To Remember Though
This isn’t an overnight process to get rich online. I doubt if there’s anything like that because every one of us who has succeeded online has put in some serious hustle and time.
So it is with blog commenting. You won’t make loads of money just by making a few comments and then relaxing. I certainly have put in at least some effort to raise my Google rankings.
Now, remember, this was basically an experiment to prove that something as simple and easy as blog commenting can benefit you greatly if you stick with it for a while.
I had to wait nearly a year for my niche blog to gain PR3 and to boost the keyword rankings on Google.
Of course I didn’t do blog commenting the whole time. The quite opposite is true – I did it for a 1-2 month period. And not every day but randomly.
This proves at least one thing – if you are a beginner and don’t know how to get traffic with the least amount of effort and time put in, then blog commenting is the first thing to try out.
It’s a no-brainier. There’s no other such simple yet powerful SEO strategy out there. At least not that I know of.
So, guys, that’s how you easily get traffic. And remember, this strategy is repeatable as many times as you wish. Be it your “dog training”, “pet care”, “lose arm fat” or whatever niche.
Just give it a try for some weeks and see what happens. Google will index your comments within a few short months and then you will see how much your Google rankings have improved, and how much more traffic you get.
