In this part we learn how to easily get backlinks to our website by commenting on other people’s blogs.
Whenever you read an article on someone’s blog scroll down to the bottom and look for a “comments” section. If their blog allows for comments and allows you to enter your website then you have found a good blog to comment on.
One of my favorite blogs to comment on is CopyBlogger.com
In the name box you want to include your keyword. I usually put my first name @ keyword. Some blogs won’t let you use keywords, some encourage it.
Then enter an email. I like to put in a secondary email because some blogs will spam your inbox.
Now in the website box you want to put in the page you want the link to go to. It is important that you enter the whole address including the http://. I always just click over to my site and copy then paste the url from the address bar, that way I don’t have typos and it’s faster.
In the comment box you want to enter at least 1 or 2 sentences. This has to be half-way intelligent but don’t kill yourself trying to make the perfect comment. Just say something related to the article or to a comment that someone else made.
It is very important that you don’t say something generic like “Great Article” or “I agree completely”. This is called spam commenting and it won’t work. Most blog owner’s will not approved these types of comments.
How do we find blogs to comment on?
What I like to do is go to my favorite blogs and find comments by other people that have links back their blogs. I will then click over to their blog and leave a comment and then repeat the process.
I want to make an important note. When building links from blogs or any other method make sure you are linking to the correct page. Most of the time this will be your homepage because that is where the most popular keywords are. But if you are trying to rank for a keyword that is not on your homepage then put the full address of the specific page that has the keyword, not the home page.
If you do 2 or 3 of these per day then they will add up and your site will start ranking. This is only one way to build links. Let’s move on to the next video to learn some other methods.
