blog commenting is spam or not?
« on: August 08, 2016, 04:03:08 AM »
I think it's spam but still people are still suggesting to do it. SO what is your answer for it?

If done merely to make a backlink to your site, it's spam. If done to actually contribute to the discussion, AND THE LINK TO YOUR SITE IS USEFUL INFORMATION for readers (whether in the body of the post, or a signature block), it's not spam.

To do relevant blog comments is not spam but commenting something useless on blogs just for the sake of getting back links can definitely be termed as spam. If you comment on blogs try to say things which provide something valuable to the readers.

I think MrPhil is right, Google hates link spamming. Blog comments are one of those easy ways to earn a link back to your site. As said comments should add some value to the post/blog in a way that helps other readers. If you are not sure about to add a link to your site while adding comments, you can use Moz bar to check the domain's spam score. You can ignore adding a link while commenting on higher spam score blogs. I hope this may add some value to other answers.

I have done research on this before and I found many irrelevant comments on dofollow blogs in order to get backlinks. And this was the easiest way to get backlinks in the previous days, but google has filtered so many websites with new algorithm updates. I also believe that spreading good information on relevant blogs or on a website make sense for visitors & google, so sharing good knowledge of information and links will definitely be counted in SEO.

it basically depends on the web pages you are commenting on. You should find out niche relevant with high PR websites. And the content you are sharing through your comments must be unique and information. If above all the okey then of course blog commenting is helpful for the website.

I think it depends on the blog that you comment. More importantly, the content you shared should be unique. You can be banned if you copy content from others.

As I said earlier in reply #1, it is spamming if all you're doing is creating a backlink to your page. If you are also making a material contribution to the discussion (your page has useful content pertinent to the discussion), it's not spamming.

Blog commenting is one of the oldest and effective ways to increase backlinks and traffic to your website.
SEO Benefits Of Blog Commenting
1. Creates opportunity – Commenting on blogs can help form relationships. When you consistently make blog comments, the relationships you form will be done over time, too. The more consistent you are, the more likely you are to build them. Over time, a friendly relationship may grow and lead to new business opportunities or even guest blog posting opportunities grow your contacts and this can lead to more connections, guest post opportunities, and new business.
2. Raises your profile – adding interest to someone’s article gets you noticed by other readers and the blog author.
3. Drives traffic to your own blog – Blog commenting can bring direct traffic to your blog. If you select high profile blogs in your industry and leave intelligent and meaningful comments, people will click over to your site if they like what you are saying.
4. You’ll learn something new – there’s nothing like a good debate and it will enrich your own experience.
5. Sparks more blogging ideas – reading other blogs is inspiring and the debate may spark an idea to present an alternate view in your own article.

I think you comment correctly on the topic and actively do not insert multiple links, it is not considered spam
