Using Only Do-Follow Blogs for Commenting Links : Promoting Your Blog

Using Only Do-Follow Blogs for Commenting Links

Thu Nov 06, 2008 2:22 am

I've always been just a tad nervous about this idea of only using 'do-follow' blogs... Doesn't anyone think that Google will someday catch on?

Let's imagine a time when Google wants to penalize you for getting your own links, and highlight what they believe is more natural links... what can be more difficult than Google's algorithm looking at the links you have - and finding that virtually all of them are 'do-follow'? Don't you suppose that it would be simplistically easy for Google to crack down, and decide to disallow PR for sites that have statistically high numbers of Do-follow vs no-follow links?

"no-follow" doesn't really mean that Google doesn't follow the link, only that when it does, it won't transfer any PR 'juice'...

AFAIK right now, Yahoo, MSN, and others pay no attention to the no-follow tag - so you still get benefit from any link.

My idea is that while do-follow blog commenting is nice - it might backfire in the long run.

Just an idea...

Naturally I agree that you shouldn't use only one method of link development - I'm just pointing out that when deciding on blogs to comment on - making an effort to seek out only 'do-follow' blogs may be working right now - but may be easily devalued by Google - whereas following a more comprehensive strategy of blog commenting, say 50/50 mix - won't put you in danger should Google suddenly decide to redo their algorithm.

The simple fact is that the reason Google is so successful is that when you search using Google (ie, as a Google customer) you generally get good results. Thus, there's a natural difference in goals between Google and me, as a webmaster. I want to be high in the SERPS using any trick or method I can - Google wants only the best pages, that would most likely fit what their customer is searching for.

I'm suggesting that methods that defeat Google's aim must be careful enough to not be discoverable by Google, as they will certainly discount them. The better you can work 'with' Google, rather than at cross-odds - the easier things will be.

There have been many 'fads' that no longer rank in the SERPS - Google catches on, and figures out how to devalue them.

Hey I would just forget about the no follow / do follow stuff and just post genuine comments to blogs whenever you feel the urge. Don't stress it.

If you are not commenting to receive PR juice, then do follow and no follow doesn't matter.

Some no follow blogs disable the no follow tag to the users who make genuine comments and provide useful contribution towards the blog.

Keep the work genuine and useful, you will get the benefits automatically.

Cheers!

maybe dofollow is better, but original comment on nofollow sites will increase credibilty
