Blog Commenting Builds Back Links
Using directories in your online promotional activities is an excellent way to get your business opportunity recognized on the internet by users as well as search engines. With online directories you can laser focus your marketing efforts to a specific category of users that are looking for information regarding a particular product or service. This is a tremendous way to build links and back links to your web site. If you're into this type of promotion, you must be very careful not to step out of bounds in this whole marketing process.
It's advisable to build a natural back link campaign rather than using automated software or linking services for this process. The search engines are very keen on picking up any links from link farms, automated submissions, using any spamming tactics and the search engines will penalize you severely if they catch you following questionable practices. They may not catch you today or tomorrow, however, just wait; sooner or later you'll get nailed. Believe me folks it's not worth taking a chance on getting caught using these kinds of unethical practices.
To find directories you can post to, you can do a "Google Search" for "article directories" and there will be a number of directories you can participate in. If you would rather shorten this process you can contact the eBiz Solutions Team at the contact information listed at the end of this article for assistance. Some of these directories even offer a submission service that you can post as many articles as you want for a nominal fee that you can pay once a month. Some of these opportunities are very affordable and can be had for as little at about 30 cents per day for posting unlimited articles. Talk about value! This method of promoting your opportunity is extremely powerful and can create permanent back links.
If you are more into the social networking scene then there's another way you can utilize the building of links and back links to you web site. Many of these social networking sites contain t "DO Follow" in their source code which ensures links leading to your web site will count with the search engines as a good back link. You can do a "Google Search" regarding sites that you can post too as well. Many of these posting sites have page ranking of 8 and 9 which are sites that are highly recognized and favored by the search engines.
Blog Commenting is one of the best marketing strategies that you can use to build back links to your web site if done correctly. This method of promoting can generate a high volume of traffic to your site and will continue to produce traffic consistently. If you write good content in your articles offering good advice, relevant information about your subject matter you will get more positive comments than if you write off subject content or junk. This method of promoting is powerful, but don't over-do this whole part of the process.
It's a common practice to earn links from blogs that you post comments to. As a matter of fact, placing comments on blogs to generate inbound links pointing to your web site is an ongoing method that will build links to your site on a consistent basis.
There's a right way and a wrong way to do this process and don't try to scam or spam the blogs that you post to. Use the comment section for what it's designed for and that is to comment good or bad on the blog and offer your positive comments not just to generate a link or back link. One word of caution here is never post more than a couple of your links in the comment area. Most directory owners has a filter which considers anything more than 2 links as spam and your comment will go directly to the spam bin and will never appear in the comment area.
Let's talk about a few activities you should avoid when placing comments. If you use language such as "I agree" or "nice post" and leave your link, then it's pretty obvious that you're intent is to generate some link juice and that you're not sincerely posting a positive comment but hoping to create a link only. If you post this type of comment on any of my blogs, I will immediately delete the comment because I consider it as spam.
Your comments are welcome but must be relevant to the content of the blog you're posting to. Without your comment having some value to the post in question your comment will be deleted. Spelling, grammatical errors, politics comments, expression of religious beliefs, unprofessional language or racist remarks will do irreparable damage to your comment post and will be deleted immediately.
Keyword stuffing in the comment section of a blog will immediately flag your comments to the blog owner as spam. Don't try to scam the blog owner with celebrity names just to be cute or avoid using your own name. This will be cause for immediate deletion without a second thought by the blog owner.
Using your URL in the comment field of your comment is not recommended. Place your URL in the URL field that's designated for that purpose only. Follow the prompts and format of each blog to avoid being deleted.
Posting comments one after another is a red flag to the blog owner that your comment is spam and your intent is not sincere and you are trying to spam and scam their system. There's no question what the blog owner is going to do. They will delete your post immediately. What a waste of your time, as well as the blog owners time to have to guess what your intent may be and have to go thru the process of deleting your post.
Don't make the mistake of posting the identical comment in several blogs. The blogging community is a tight knit group and monitors many different blogging platforms. They know each other and will keep each other informed and won't hesitate reporting you for spamming and/or duplicate content. Don't take the chance of being black listed for this type of infraction or poor business ethics.
In summary: When posting to blogs, forums, message boards, article directories or posting comments to someone's else work, always use good business etiquette and keep in mind the real purpose of what the commenting medium of blogging is all about.
