Backlinks are the lifeline of blogs and websites. They give you traffic, they give you exposure and more importantly, they give you the much needed Google Juice, which is so important to rank up in SERP.
Given the importance of Backlinks, they are probably hardest thing to gain. People follow all sorts of practices to get Backlinks including link exchange, buying links etc.
I have recently written a guest post for CourtneyTurtle.com, which was well received. In this post I have aired my way of link exchanges.
Yet another popular method of getting backlinks to your blog is by commenting on blogs, which have rel=”nofollow” attribute removed from their comments section. There are lots and lots of them, and this method is an easy one to get some crucial backlinks to your blog.
But, how to find good dofollow blogs
There are many ways, read on. But the best one is probably the last one.
1. Use DoFollow lists: Web Tools and tips is also a dofollow blog and it also shows some link love to the fellow dofollow blogs by maintaining a list of dofollow blogs. You can use that list, or similar lists on other blogs.
2. Use CommentKahuna: This is a small downloadable program, which I found from John Cow’s blog. After download, you have to enter a keyword into it, and it claims to search for the blog posts for that keyword from the dofollow blogs. Then you can choose, where to comment and thus earn a backlink. The benefit is that, the backlink you earned is from a blog which is in the related niche as you, and so it is more important.
But, when I used it, I found that the many of the blogs, which were found by CommentKahuna for me, were actually carrying a rel=”external nofollow” attribute, which is as good as nofollow. So it was useless for me, although many of the John Cow visitors have praised it highly.
3. Use DoFollo.com: This is a website, which is acting just perfect for me. It finds quality dofollow blogs, for the keyword of your choice and you can easily comment on them. Certainly a website worth considering, if you don’t think it to be an unethical method of earning backlinks for your blog.
