How to Find Dofollow Commentluv Blogs with High Page Rank Internal Pages?

We all know that when you find dofollow Commentluv enabled blogs they can be a great asset to use as a SEO technique for your WordPress Website or blog. But this is not always the case. Some Commentluv enabled blogs have the plugin installed but have made the actual links “nofollow”. The new Commentluv Premium WordPress plugin allows webmaster to customize each part of the comments to either doffolow or nofollow. This new plugin even blocks out spam, includes keywordluv and more..

The other question you need to ask when finding a dofollow blog is “does this page have Google Page Rank?” Of course the perfect place to comment for SEO purposes is on a “commentluv” enabled, “dofollow”, high Page Rank blog. I am going to show you how to find these websites with all three factors. There is not many out there, well it depends greatly on what niche you are in.

Please note that I am not saying “nofollow” is worthless, I am just saying “dofollow” is better. However for natural link building, always try to have a mix of both.

Firstly, if you do not know what “dofollow commentluv” is then see these posts  What is a “Do Follow” link and a “Nofollow” link? and How to search in Google for “dofollow” related blogs to comment on?

What about WordPress comment spam when you find dofollow blogs?

‘This seems all systematic and un-human to search for a blog or website in this manner, however I am a real person with valuable comments that will definitely enhance someone else post. When I find a WordPress website with all these factors included it can take me at lest 30 mins to compose a great comment. I appreciate the fact that they are going to give my links some benefits.

Sadly some people spam WordPress websites with stupid generic comments that have nothing to do with the subject at hand. These comments should just be deleted. In fact do not just delete them, press the spam link so they do not come back. People work hard on their websites and spammers come along trying to ad irrelevant comments. Are you kidding me?

Find dofollow “commentluv” blogs with high Page Rank internal pages?

Please note: You must have read How to search in Google for “dofollow” related blogs to comment on? and What is a “Do Follow” link and a “Nofollow” link? to continue as this is used in the first step.

1. Research and find blogs that are both “commentluv” and “dofollow” as shown in the articles above.

  • This will show you how to search for a “commmentluv” blog using this search string intitle:outlook express “commentluv”
  • Then you will need to install a free Firefox plugin called Search Status, and see if the links are “dofollow”.

2. Now we need to install another plugin to see the page ranks of the internal pages.

  • You will need another Firefox plugin, SEOQuake. Enable the plugin. It should do it for you when you install it.

3. Once you have the second plugin installed, choose a website url that you know has “dofollow”. For example you searched for your keyword and commnetluv as shown above. You went to the website and saw that the comment links were not highlighted. Then you take note of that website main url so you can research further.

4. Now go to Google and search for

In the example below I have used my website. So I typed in

Then I pressed on the sort page rank tiny button and the highest page ranks were shown at the top.

Now from this research I see the homepage has a PR of 4 and an internal page has a page rank of 3. Therefore it would be beneficial to comment on the PR 3 page as there is usually no comments allowed on a homepage.

Don’t miss this great article on the advantages of using the Commentluv WordPress plug-in

The Best Commentluv Dofollow Lists

Save yourself the time and stress and make use of these amazing Commentluv enabled lists. Of course this blog is on both! Unfortunately they forgot a few more of mine though like,,,, and too many too mention!

Note on how to find dofollow blogs:

I am not advocating spam comments. These are blogs and websites that you can build a long term relationship with. Don’t blow it by writing some stupid meaningless comment because that is just a waste of a good dofollow blog comment. When you find dofollow blogs appreciate them and you will be rewarded. CommentLuv Premium will now give the blogger so many options and controls so your junk comments will not be published!

    Hey Mitz,

    Another very useful article and some new techniques I had never even heard of before! WOW -Definitely going to give this a try when I’ve got a spare minute or two – just noticed the premade lists of dofollow blogs will have a look at those too!

  2. Stephano says

    I love comluv blogs with good page rank and this is pretty much the technique I use to find pages with good PR inside of a comluv blog. I don’t use the Search Status though. It seems that SEOquake shows me whether links are dofollow or nofollow now.

    One thing I have noticed is that my SEOquake only filters the results on that page . I think I need to change my search settings to show more than 10 results. Is that what you do?
    Stephano recently posted..Che cos’è ASEA?

  3. says

    Thanks for the update and I’ve been using the search status add on for a long time because it quickly shows but I didn’t realize till now that it can also quickly highly highlight do-follow and no-follow links. Also heard that no-follow links have still some SEO value and must not be totally discounted, thanks a lot again

  4. says

    Thanks for this info. I had a lot of trouble finding dofollow blogs but this CommentLuv thing seems great :). I wonder what’s in it for them though. With most places using nofollow, I wonder what CommentLuv blogs get out of this. I love the way you sort out the pages so you get the best bang for your buck. I will be using your method from now on thanks.

  5. says

    CommentLuv is a really good tool for bloggers. Every blogger should make use of it. It not only increases the visibility of the blog, but it also facilitates communication between the commentators.

  6. says

    . I once again find myself spending a significant amount of time both reading and leaving comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile, and another great way to find places to comment is to go to websites that have communal installed and go through the people that have commented there,…..

  7. says

    hi mitz. i thought commentluv enabled blog will suffice and automatically assumes a dofollow approach. i never realized that commentluv does not actually changes the site from nofollow to dofollow

    i also noticed that most high ranking .edu sites implement no follow. perhaps they are trying to avoid spammy comments since .edu sites have high PR ranking.

    • mitz says

      Hi Marilyn
      Not all commentluv blogs are dofollow so this is why we are looking for them. We do need nofollow links to our sites too for the balance but dofollow is better. As for .edu sites. I think a lot of these sites are rubbish and the good ones that you want a link on are almost impossible to get. :)

    Thanks for the specific information. I will try to discover commentluv myself om my blog about media, onlkine marketing and e-commerce! When you have real good information, the backlinks will come. Regards, Tim

    Hi Mitz! Thanks for sharing such great information! Immediately after I read your post I went back to my blog and installed commentluv. I hope it helps me rank with google. Once again thank you very much and the best of wishes this year =)

  10. says

    Hi Mitz,
    I commented on your post at comluv, I am sure you saw it because it was approved. This is a great breakdown of steps to find dofollow pages with high PR. Personally, I have not applied this yet, but will do very soon. Right now I just use the SEOBOOK plugin for Firefox, which tells you the PageRank and will highlight the nofollow links. It also lets you export in csv format all the links on the page, and you can sort by internal / external links and follow / nofollow links. Your method of finding the highest PR page per site is great though. Nice work Mitz.
    Please feel free to visit my blog, I just cleaned up all the garbage comments.

  13. CBhushna says

    Good job friend and DoFollow doesn’t technically exist, instead, it is the absense of the “nofollow” tag in a link. Links with “nofollow” do not count as backlinks to Google and other search engines, so you don’t get the search engine ranking benefit for a link with “nofollow.”

  14. says

    Nice tips sir in how to find do follow sites, my problem sir is the SEO quake. When I installed it in my browser, it does function well at first (it shows the correct PR rank for sites and post) but after several searches (maybe after 5-10 searches) the PR rank will appear N/A) i tried searching my sites that have pr rank, and still it shows N/A. I tried installing SEO quake on a different browser, I used firefox first, then I tried chrome but the same problem occurs. Its only good for several searches.. Any advice on this Sir? I really like what SEO quake can offer, but that certain problem really bugs me.

    CommentLuv is a really good tool for bloggers. Every blogger should make use of it. It not only increases the visibility of the blog, but it also facilitates communication between the commentators. All the people who have commented on CommentLuv will be able to see each other and share in formation. so, you can end up making good social contacts. Having an anti spam box or code is necessary to prevent irrelevant comments.

    I think Comment Luv has been one of the most important aspects of my link-building strategy. Commentluv is valuable for so many reasons. While it encourages commenters, I think it actually REDUCES spam comments because the link needs to be referring to a blog with real content for it to be effective. here i put a question how can i set up commentluv to blogger blog?

  20. mitz says

    Yeah I don’t know how they can use comment luv and keyword luv and make it nofollow?? that was why we use the plugin in the first share the link luv. ?

    Thanks for the helpful information. Comment Luv is a great tool for bloggers and it’s a generous offer by the webmasters that use it. I live by SEOQuake, but since Firefox has been coming out with these frequent updates lately, it’s been freezing up my computer. Are their any other tools you recommend? Thanks for the post.

  29. mitz says

    There are so many benefits to using Commentluv though. One is the control over spam and your whole commenting system. Another is that other bloggers love it and want appreciate the link you give them.

  30. says

    The CommentLuv plugin has been a great linker for blogs old and new. It is also very interesting to get different points of views on various subjects. Allowing not only the blog host, but a new reader to check out other blogs has proven to be educational for me personally.

    I think keywordluv is great for blogs and for website owners. It’s much better looking for the comment to list the name of the commenter and then the anchor keywords, rather than blogs that don’t use keyword luv, and commenters try to sneak in the keyword in their name. Thanks for using keyword luv!

    This is interesting as the scope of this article actually talks about the internal pages and how they need to have the high PR. There are many I talk to today that believe that are getting a PR 5 link when the home page is PR 5 and the blog comment or link is PR 0. The norm for the sites that have high PR on their internal pages have either been around for quite some time or they either have good internal link structure.

  64. says

    Excellent info here. It is getting harder to find Dofollow blogs to comment upon and the tips and tools you mention go a long way in helping. Commentluv is superb provided it is used correctly. If too many people just start posting spam comments then this forces the webmaster to remove the dofollow element as they cannot be bothered with the time consuming tasks of regulating spam and differentiating those comments that are genuine. Thanks again!!

    This is the second time I have heard mention of commentluv so I’ll have to look into it. I’m not apposed to having natural comments with links on my blog but as stated most tend to be spam. As a SEO and Google Places Optimizer we have to build links for our small business clients and quite honestly an interactive engaging comment is a great way to do that, however all the autocommenters out there water down the effort of those of us that do it manually and contribute albeit in a small way with comments.

  72. Brian says

    I’m also still learning about SEO. CommentLuv seems like a dream come true though. I have a moral aversion to spamming and it seems on most blogs if you want to target keywords you have to use a fake name using your keywords which just looks bad in my opinion.

    I’d rather have a decent comment that builds on the discussion or helps, and get the backlink as a reward which is what CommentLuv promotes. It’s in none of our interests for comments to be worthless and spammed.

    Thanks for the tips! It seems that most blogs are “nofollow” and those links are useless when it comes to SEO.Still, guys at Google say that “nofollow” is only a tiny percentage of all links out there.It seems to me that the majority of links are “nofollow”, not the other way around.When it comes to spammers, I use the “WP spam free” plugin and it works really well.

    Since I was only recently convinced of the critical importance of backlinks, I started commenting and have seen much more traffic. I run a DoFollow blog with CommentLuv and, at least for now, looking to engage with serious (or funny) bloggers. If you would like some link juice from a lowly rank 1 site, well I’m happy to see humans. I get a few human spammers but also getting a lot more real folks to come by and comment. Mitz, I keep finding good articles as I look for one you wrote recently!

    If done right by both sides, it is a really good practice to enable dofollow on a website and encourage the visitors to post meaningful comments and engage in spirited discussions with the blogger. As you said, the spammers that post meaningless gibberish just to get backlinks are the ones who usually ruin it but thankfully, there are so many spam protection features available today to combat that also.

    Hi Mitz. Even with the useful tips you provide finding dofollow sites is a chore — at least in my opinion. Do you focus exclusively on dofollow backlinks? Also a commenter mentioned that his site was able to rank off mostly nofollow backlinks. Do you have any insights on ranking with nofollow links?
    Thomas recently posted..Black Hat SEO Techniques – What Is Black Hat?

      I do not say that nofollow is worthless but I would say that a dofollow would be better. If you could get a dofollow link on yahoo answers that would be better than the nofollow we currently get.

      • James Baily says

        I agree that DoFollow is definatly better than Nofollow, I’ve run lots of tests between the two and DoFollow has a much bigger impact 99% of the time… However, I have tested using nothing but NoFollow backlinks to a couple of my new blogs and it definatly has an impact on ranking. So the best thing is too do in my opinion is to have a good variety of both as it would appear much more natural to the search engines.

      I agree with you Mitz. i really don’t mind if it’s dofollow or nofollow blog. As long as it gives my blog exposure, i’m OK with that. Having a nofollow back link is also important since this would make your link building strategy natural.

I have trouble getting the said ones via searching it on google. It brings me to the same domains. I see you have illustrated here what to do. And yeah, the SEOquake is a must for identifying the PRs of those sites and the do follow attribute but still I cannot get various sites. It would be very helpful if I can get some sites pertaining to similarity of my keyword. How do I search such one? Like on health sites with commentluv. This is my problem, getting the needed sites for me to post on.

  91. Marvin says

    Hi mitz,

    Thanks for showing us how to find “dofollow” blogs. Before I read this I always use “dofollow blogs” for search and there it is! dofollow blogs pop out but full of spammers. It’s hard to comment when the interaction between the moderator and the visitors were all non-sense spam. For me, CommentLuv is the best plug in to help those people who do SEO (like me) and for the site’s owner to do more quality interaction with commenter.

  92. Ryan says

    Seoquake is by far the best browser extension I’ve found when analyzing sites.

    I’m a bit surprised by how many webmasters that use the commentluv plugin actually turn it to dofollow. I tried it both ways (nofollow and dofollow) on two of my similar small blogs and got about the same amount of spam, so I’m not sure if changing to nofollow has much affect is stopping spammers. Have you had any experience with that?

    Fully agree about not wasting it on spam.

    It’s such a shame that people can be so giving and many people just blow it by putting rubbish. Thanks from the heart for leaving dofollow links.

    Thanks Mitz,
    I agree with you about building relationships with those precious few blogs that allow comments–although I see that commentluv and keywordluv have not prevented a number of jerks from posting more links in their comments on this blog!
    I’m fairly new to IM and SEO and although I never spam blogs, sometimes I’m aware that I could have spent a bit more time putting quality into my comment. I have a tendency to think that more links are better, but I’m quickly realizing that fewer, higher-quality links are the way to go. I want links that will be permanent and good quality, and it’s thanks to wretched spammers that webmasters are forced to close comments or make blogs no-follow–and I certainly don’t want to contribute to that!
    Note–for anyone using a Firefox version about 6.0, don’t despair–you can use Quirk SearchStatus plugin to check for no-follow!

    • mitz says

      Hi Lorraine
      I think we are always going to have a problem with spam on the internet regardless of what comment plugin you use.
      Although I have written this article, commenting is not a purposeful SEO task for me…I definitely do not have time to comment on blogs for the sake of getting a link. I do know that there is some SEO value but quality in everything rules. Therefore a few good comments will do better than 100 bad ones.

      I would recommend commenting to get involved in a community, but you might as well get a good link while you are there.

You are so right about building a long term relationship with blogs via comments. I think it also helps if the author of the post responds to comments, as you do. I think it sends a message that spam won’t get through. At the same time it shows that you value the opinions of folks who comment.

    Thanks for enlightening your readers about the dofollow plug ins, I used to think what relevance it was to the blog itself. But I do have a comment on the spamming part, yes some people do place generic comments but some blog owners are just plain downright snooty or clueless. I mean even if it enhances your blog whatsoever, your page rank still benefits from the spam instead of having 3 measly good comments because let’s face it, people won’t be impressed with blogs with a few comments (regardless of being good or bad).
    And hope you can clarify this because I noticed this with the commentluv sites, there are sites directly connected to comluv and others just have the commentluv plug in on the comments section, sorry I’m new to this, are they 2 different things? Do I get the same benefit even if I used either one? I know that with commentluv, I’ll have the opportunity to generate traffic and make money as long as people comment or click on the links, do I get the same thing with comluv?

    Very useful Mitz! The seoquake also list down other valuable stats aside from internal page PR right? Building a do follow list of blogs to comment on is my goal this month. Thanks for posting this up :)

  113. Mike says

    Hey Mitz – thanks for the reply and while my tips may be helpful they’re certainly not going to be the difference between ranking success or failure for anyone. I think the most important aspect of SEO success is to “Make sure you do a bit of everything!,” and make sure you do it consistently, for long enough. Even if you didn’t know anything about dofollow or PR, if you were simply to start building links to your sites in a clearly outlined, one link at a time plan you’d get to where you want to go.

    Most people seem to throw up a few links, not see any results and quit. If they were to check their rankings each week (I use Traffic Travis) they would probably see that they are moving up (unless they targeted a ridiculously competitive keyword like “diet” or something). In a few months, if they’ve got several pages ranked somewhere in Google, they can simply add more links and push themselves further ahead and repeat this until they get there.

    Here are a couple more tidbits about blog commenting for SEO that I’ve found useful:

    1. Instead of simply choosing high PR pages to comment on, choose the ones with high PR and relatively low outgoing links. For example, if you do your SEO Quake sorting of 100 posts of a blog and you find that there is a PR 4 with over 175 comments, each with outgoing links, and a PR 3 with 5 such comments, you’re probably going to get more PR passed to your site from the latter. This applies to forum commenting as well.

    If Google sees a page has dozens of comments or replies with links to all kinds of non-related sites, they may give the page less weight because of the possibility that it is being spammed due to a lack of, or careless, moderation. The other side of this equation though is incoming links, so if Google sees hundreds of outgoing links but there are also hundreds of incoming links, then they’ll be more likely to think that everything is copacetic.

    2. Don’t just consider the PR of a page. Often I’ll leave a comment on a PR NA or PR 0 page and in a few months I’ll have a PR 2 or 3 backlink. This is because these sites had a PR 4 or 5 for their homepage at the time I commented and the posts I commented on were fairly new and still likely to gain some backlinks, comments and PR.

    2. Also go for .edu and .gov blogs. A PR 0 link from a site on one of these TLDs seems to pass more link juice than a PR 2 from a blog. Even a non-relevant PR 0 link like this. Here is a search string: inurl:blog “comment” -”you must be logged in” -”posting closed” -”comment closed” “niche keyword”

    About my question:

    “I am using both because Search status gives the PR and SEO Quake shows the “nofollow”.”

    Now I’M confused, haha.

    In your post you said:

    “Then you will need to install a free Firefox plugin called Search Status, and see if the links are “ dofollow”.”

    And then my question was why you use Search Status for this instead of SEO Quake, which crosses-out nofollow links and which you already need to download anyway?

    I’m probably missing something.

    Mike recently posted..DUBturbo Review – Hella Hard Beats Made Easy?

  114. Leila says

    There are actually some do follow search engines that can give you a small list of targeted do follow sites. Opensite explorer also helps you research do dollow competitor back links in an instant. Thanks for the search status plugin for firefox, it’s really useful to detect whether a site/blog is do follow or not.

  115. mitz says

    Sure Hayley
    This is just one of the ways of promoting your website. Make sure you do a bit of everything! :)

  116. Mike says


    I really sense a great affinity for contributing to the value of the web in this post. You got to give to get in this business and you seem to be one of the few that gets this. (If you do actually have 20 sites, then I’m quite certain you do.)

    As far as finding high PR dofollow blogs you’re right on the money but I’d like to add a couple of quick and painless techniques or ideas that might make things more effective for you and your readers:

    1. Instead of just searching for commentluv blogs with a keyword related to your site or the page you’re trying to get links to in your string, why not just search for the phrase (i.e. “outlook express”) as well? You’ll come up with a lot more results and as far as I (and all the people I know who make full-time money from their websites in Google) it doesn’t usually make a significant difference whether the keyword is in the title or not.

    2. When you find a blog that is dofollow and you want to find a high PR page to give some tokens of wisdom to, if you go to Google advanced search you can specify that you want to receive 100 results per page.

    If a blog has more than 10 posts, this makes sure you’re not missing out on any (or at least not too many) high PR pages. If a blog has more than 100 posts you can search specific categories in advanced if they file their posts within them. There is a limit to how many times you do this before google will stop giving you PR results for 24 hours, so you may want to keep your searches down to 50 posts per page.

    As an aside: when it comes to relevance my experience is that a PR 2 link from a completely unrelated site is far more valuable than a PR 0 link from a relevant one.

    You may also be interested to know that when it comes to dofollow VS nofollow, I’ve actually found both kinds to be valuable (though dofollow has definitely proven to be more valuable, all other things being equal).

    Oh, almost forgot my question: why install Search Status and SEO Quake when the latter identifies dofollow and nofollow links?


    • mitz says

      Great tips Mike
      Thanks for sharing these!

      I am using both because Search status gives the PR and SEO Quake shows the “nofollow”

      I am confused with your last question though..? Maybe the plugins have been updated to do something else?

  117. jelbee says

    For me:
    Dofollow links is usable for search engine ranking/ pagerank/inboundlinks while Nofollow links gives you inbound links but i don’t know if it also affects your Page Ranking.
    Although Dofollow blogs attract visitors it also drives spammer on your site while Nofollow blogs (No wants to comment your blog beacause of this link attribute “nofollow”) 98% of the commentators are blogger also knows how it goes.

    I really am not one for too much commenting. I would rather guest post on one website that will give you 20x the traffic and SEO benefits. Even article directories and blogs are ok.. Also you have to answer the comments on the post and your comment luv links will be all over that page…so you are getting 20-30 links on the page..which gives you a better chance to get the traffic.

  122. Greg says

    Also one should mention that not all blogs that carry the Comment Luv plugin set it to be dofollow. This is a setting one must turn on as dofollow in the wp admin area under settings.

    Not a super big deal, but just wanted to let everyone one that just because you’re on a CL blog doesn’t automatically mean your latest post will be dofollow.

    Anyone that has commentluv installed – how’s the spam? I see most have a simple checkbox that says “confirm you are NOT a spammer”, but does that really help a lot?

    • mitz says

      i have no spam…Only the spam that humans are writing!!! The “confirm you are not a spammer” checkbox is simple but works! It is called growmap anti spam. FREE

    I do not use software posted comments as I do not want to risk what I have. I am opposed to auto comments and if something looks like it is automatically done I delete it.
    However i would test this on a new website because I am always curious.

    • mitz says

      I have noticed that the recent updates for comluv need you to re-enable them. When you do though, the links all come back, even the old ones…

      I do not like webmasters removing Comluv after a while..It is not a good idea.

  125. Mary Martinez says

    With the invention of commentluv, my site became much more lively and interactive. If it might add, one of the most brilliant and innovative plugins ever made!

  126. Greene says

    I am now using SEO firefox extensions just to determine if the blog has dofollow or do not follow commenluv links. I really consider to add comments to those blog post which has a do follow links.

    This are great tips and really helpful. I personally think that the best thing to look in a blog is to see if it is alive and if the author of the blog writes with passion or just for the profit. The passionate bloggers will grow in the long run so you cannot miss with that.

    Keep up the good work

    I have never been banned for searching for anything…. Make a list of urls when you do it and comment join in on their conversations regularly. Each time you make a new post, you can do a commenting session.

    Hi Mitz,
    Thanks for these SEO tips. I recently setup my first ever website using wordpress and have learned a lot in the past few months!

    Using some applications that can make your blog easy to find is a great help. It will help in driving traffics to your blogs. But of course, your blogs must be unique and with content. If the content is okay, then it will be alright. People will eventually go there. They will comment on your blogs. Giving you the chance to have friends as well. Making your blog attractive and eye catchy will also attract readers. So using applications can aid you in that goal. Just write and write. Go bloggers!!!

  131. Debra says

    Thanks for this post. I’ve been using the search status addon for a long time because it quickly shows PR & Alexa but I didn’t realize till now that it can also quickly highly highlight dofollow and nofollow links. Also heard that nofollow links have still some SEO value and must not be totally discounted. I’m no SEO expert though.

    Hi there
    I see your comment love link so you must be doing it right!

    You need to put the url of your website in the comment section details. Not the post url. Also if you register at the commentluv website you will get to choose from the last 10 posts instead of just the latest post.

  134. mitz says

    Hi Wayne,
    I just went and had a look for myself because I did not realize I was on page 1 the term do follow blogs with commentluv. That’s pretty funny considering that everyone is talking about it!

    It’s amazing what you can do with a little bit of SEO.

    Just implemented the comment luv plugin to my other site and I have been finding more sites online with do follow and comment luv. I have already gotten more quality comments. Just the other day I was spending countless hours of deleting funny spam comments. I am guessing people that really want a link back realize they won’t get Luv back if they spam.

    Only recently heard of do follows and no follows and now finding that there seems to be an ever increasing movement that are going for do follows on their blogs. Be interesting to see if it does bring in relevant traffic. Certainly by looking myself I’ve found blogs that I will want to visit now just for personal interest. So great news for everyone!

  138. Jeff Turner says

    I would disagree with Ed as nofollows have not helped our seo at all. As the blog here said dofollows are the way to go. I like the plugsin for firefox. Thanks for the information.

    • mitz says

      There is no doubt that dofollow helps SEO…But nofollow can give you traffic so do not forget that.A link is a link and it leads to your website. really all we want is for someone to click it and come and visit us…

      For SEO purposes, dofollow links win hands down.

    I think that CommentLuv is nice tool to find blogs that allow do-follow links in order to help you site gain some back-links. I think that you can stay on topic and still get a back -link that could help you get some link juice without spamming the site. I think that a nice way to do this is by using your name and adding you keywords behind it even if the blog doesn’t have keywordLuv. In my mind as long as you can blog about the topic you should be able to get a back-link approved even if your site doesn’t relate to the blog. I guess you just have to go about blogging from the prospective of the blog owner and see how things play out. If you use the Firefox plugin called Search Status that Mitz talks about in this blog you can see if comments that use some Anchor text in their name are being allowed to be dofollow even if they are a none related site this goes for blogs that are CommentLuv and Non-CommentLuv.

  140. john marry says

    Thanks mitz!
    I am learning internet marketing and use to read posts for learning more by professionals like you and searching for some backlinks as well.
    Blogs with CommentLuv are great providing opportunity of getting backlinks but….
    exponentially increasing rate of spamming has made it difficult for people like me working hard marketing efforts and utilizing proper ways of getting backlinks.Now blogger gets suspicious with the keywords in post and the comment is deleted assuming it to be spam.
    I request please don’t spam.At least add some useful information that makes blogger happy.And i also request through your channel to all blog owners not to treat spammer and reader in the same way..

    • mitz says

      I agree totally…Do not spam!!!

      I hate spam and the only reason this method works for me is because I write a great comment that is worth reading and publishing.

      There is absolutely no doubt that commenting on other blogs works…You just have to do it the right way.

  141. Gina Jennings says

    Wow. That’s a great tip. I didn’t know there was such a plugin as StatusSearch.

    I use Firefox’s NoDoFollow plugin to see if any links are nofollow (pink) or dofollow (purple). Then I check the SEO For FireFox bar to see what the page rank of that particular page is.

    As far as commenting on pages that have internal PR on them already, what page rank should you go for? Anything above a PR 0?

    • mitz says

      Well lets just say if you went for all the high ranking sites you would not be doing too much commenting. Also if you comment on a variety of websites it looks good in Googles eyes.

      I simply do not comment on absolute new websites with no rankings…the ones that look like they have slapped all the content on and started a website. I like the websites that show promise and look like it is made by a real person. That’s all I do…If it inspires you then comment. If you appreciate the content and think it is good quality then comment.

  142. mitz says


    I haven’t thought about how to find auto approved blogs. I am not really worried about that because your comment should get approved with no problem if it is useful and genuine.


    Commentluv will not stop spam. It does bring you a better quality of comment though, as the webmaster wants to be approved to get the link luv.

    Does it matter how people find your blog??? You might get a great fan out of a person that intended to only comment on your blog. Commentluv only ads another way to attract more visitors and that’s what we want!

    Thanks – very clear instructions. I have to say as a blog owner I am on the fence about CommentLuv. I currently use Disqus and have been thinking about Commentluv, but I worry people will be finding my blog (using methods you describe:) just to drop a comment to get the link. If it is a meaningful comment, that is great. But I do worry about the spam.

    What have you found? If you use CommentLuv with something like Alkemist can you avoid people spamming your comments?
