Spending time adding comments to blogs can be a great method to increase traffic and get high PR backlinks fast but it can also be a major time sinkhole. Sure, the high PR backlinks can boost your rankings and give you some direct traffic but how much time and effort was spent getting those?
Finally, there is a solution to get the prized high PR Dofollow backlinks, traffic, and the ability to search and find quality blogs to post to in very little time. DoFellow is an incredibly easy tool that will save you hours every week. Spend a few minutes a day doing some blog comments rather than spending hours of your time just searching for them.
DoFellow will search out blogs with your niche and will identify which are “do follow” and what the page rank is. If you only want PR3 and above you can filter it and get them. I have found many PR4 and PR5 blogs with DoFellow and it will even get you some PR6’s as well! An immediate boost in organic search rankings can typically be seen from high PR blog comments and when you post within your relevant niche you will also get some direct traffic from your comments.
Blog commenting is a great strategy to add diversity to your backlinking. Just don’t invest yourself too heavily in it because the blog owner could eventually delete the post for even switch the links to follow. The other drawback to banking too much on blog commenting is the fact that other savvy internet marketers will eventually find these little gems and also leave comments.
The more links on a page the more diluted each backlink becomes and the less overall value it will add. I would still recommend spending 15 minutes a day getting a couple of high PR blog backlinks for the immediate SEO boost so you can make money today while slowly building backlinks more permanently with a long term solution like article directory submissions and some good RSS submission strategies.
Keep a diverse backlink portfolio and you will make it to the top of the rankings and increase website traffic significantly. Check out my top backlinking strategies to increase search engine traffic.
