How to search in Google for "dofollow" related blogs to comment on?

I am really into SEO and believe it or not blog commenting plays a big part in this. I have a certain SEO track that I follow for all my websites and have even been experimenting with dead websites, bringing them to the top of the search engines. Commenting on a blog is mainly used for SEO purposes, however it can also bring you targeted traffic. But you cannot just comment on any old blog or website.

Blogs to comment on for SEO purposes:

  1. A “Do Follow” blog or website. This is the number one factor for commenting on a website or blog unless you are commenting to get traffic and not link juice. See what is a “nofollow” link? and how to tell if a blog is “nofollow” or “dofollow”.
  2. A blog that accepts comments. ( Obviously)
  3. A blog or website that is related to your niche. ( Not so Obvious )
  4. A comment luv enabled blog. A top quality link back.

How to find a “dodollow” blog to comment on?

I search in google to find blogs and websites that will accept comments and are “dofollow”. Here are some ways to search for a “dofollow” blog.

Commentluv Blogs: If you look for blogs that have this plugin they are almost always dofollow. They let you comment and also place a link to your latest post on your blog. The following search string will find a keyword in the title of a post and find you blogs enable with commentluv. So for example if I wanted to search for blogs that had the keywords “outlook express” in the title I would put the following:

intitle:outlook express “commentluv”

How to tell if a link is “dofollow”?

Even when you find a blog or website you still need to confirm that it is indeed “nofollow” free. You can do this by installing a free Firefox plugin that will highlight the “nofollow” link. See how to show “nofollow” links.

Here are some more ideas to search for “dofollow” blogs:

intitle:computer tips “powered by wordpress”

intitle:computer tips “nofollow free”

Now please note…Even though a blog has a Nofollow free message or commentluv it still does not guarantee that its links are “do follow”.

    Hey Mitz,

    I have MozBar SEO Toolbar from SEOmoz installed on my browser that lets me see if a blog is dofollw before I make a comment but to be honest I will make a comment on a blog even if it is nofollow – reason being that even the nofollow links can be good and it’s great to have a mixture of both – also sometimes I just like to comment if I enjoyed the blog post :-)

    Cheers

    Great tip to identify Do Follow blogs, I know there are some blogs that identify themselves as Do Follow by when you look into the code the truth reveals itself. I prefer using the SEOQuake plugin and it helps me cut down on the time identifying such blogs. Thanks for sharing it with everyone though.

    Link building is the great way to improve ranking on search engines, and choosing the dofollow blog to comment on is more effective than nofollow blog. thanks for your share.

  13. says

    I found that actually analyzing competitor’s backlinks is useless if they are on the first page. Most of them pay for their links to get there. Does anyone else experience this? Do you have any solution?

  14. says

    I thought comment luv was no follow…interesting to find out that it is!

    I find that most Do follow blogs have switched over to No follow now because of all the spam….make sure its relevant buys when you comment!

  15. says

    Thanks for the great information!!!…Searching for sites to comment on for high quality backlinks can be time consuming…But, if you put a little elbow grease now, it will pay off in the future with more money made through your internet marketing small business…

    Most of the commentluv blogs these days are having a no follow attribute you can rarely see a do follow blog to comment with. As for the plug in or ad ons there are several plug ins to use to check whether the links are do follow or no follow whether you are using a google chrome or a mozilla browser.

    • mitz says

      Yes I see that many have nofollow too.. I think there is an update coming that will help with spam and maybe more can become dofollow.

    FireFox is an awsome browser! Nice and Fast but sometimes i need to download some plugins before i can go to the website and i always end up using explore. Heck i have Explore9, FF, Chrome, and Opera. So Far FireFox is Number 1, Chrome #2 ,Explore #3, and Opera #4

    Another Infromative writeup. I have a question though, what is your opinion on having a combination of both dofollow and nofollow backlinks, I have read on some other blogs that google prefers a health combination of both, what is your opinion on this?

  21. Bewster says

    Another simple on page search engine optimization technique you can use is to re-order your title tags. Do not use the exact same or very similar title tag for every single page on your website. Changing the order throughout the website just increases the likelihood your page will be picked up by the search engines.

  22. Vlasta Eriksson says

    G’Day from Australia.
    Very happy to have found this blog with all its information on “Commentluv” – just finished reading how to be accepted on this blog of yours & am very happy to read more from you in the future.

    If you would put your SEO activities into % – blog commenting would be 5% or 20%? How much weight do you give for Article Marketing and do you use tools for Article Marketing such as Content Crooner or others? We’re very happy to followup with you on this blog. Have a great day.

    PS
    We are also using nofollow social bookmarking platforms, I think the mix is what it is, and some nofollow’s won’t hurt anyway :).

  23. says

    Great article. I installed the firefox plugin in no time at all and now my job is much easier! Also, great tips. I want to share one too. If you find a blogger online that is active, you can add his user id to your search string and see everywhere he has posted. I find that when I follow professional bloggers, 90% of their trail is hot with dofollow’s!

      Yes I think they are still worth while.. I cannot tell you if they show up in Google webmasters as backlinks now as I haven’t checked for a long time…They used to.. They can also provide traffic and sometimes good traffic. You also need them to create a balance and make your link building look natural.

  26. Gails says

    Hi Mitz Thanks for sharing these tips on finding dofollow blogs.I have compiled a list of hundreds of blogs which are dofollow as I was trying to do backlinking for my website myself.But there is one problem.Most of these blogs have a high homepage PR and many blogs in my list are using CommentLove and keywordluv but to find blog posts with high PR is extremely difficult .Even the blogs which have a PR of 5 or 6 have very few posts which have the PR equal to homepage.And even if i find a post with a good PR of 4 or 5 there are already 100s of comments on that post which dilutes PR and renders the post useless.I’ve come across blog posts with a PR of 5,6 or 7 but sometimes they have more than 1000 comments.I’m wondering is there any linkjuice left for a lastcomer like me.Somewhere I’ve read that Google crawls first 150 links on a page and the rest of the outgoing links are useless or effectively nofollow.Any ideas on how to find blog post with high PR and few number of comments ?Or I’ve to do it manually?
    Gails recently posted..Content Marketing Strategy in Internet Marketing Blogs

    • mitz says

      No..That all sounds like too much effort..Find a few blogs you like to comment on and then hook up to their RSS feed…Then when a new post goes up put your comment in… Other than that…If you want to dominate the page with links…submit a guest post…that is the best way. :)

  27. Jim says

    I see a wide range of opinion on the value of NoFollow vs DoFollow. Well, obviously DoFollow is great, so I should probably say that the range of opinion is specifically regarding NoFollow. Some say that it provides very link juice at all (if any), to others saying it is still a really great link to have (if high PR), and that it is essential to mix DoFollow & NoFollow in your linking strategies. Confused. What do you think?

    I have commentluv on my site because I apreciate useful comments, but instead I was receiving tons of trackback spam. If you have the same problem, I found a free plug-in called ‘simple TB validation’, which stopped it completely. Give it a try if you have the same problem, I love a spam free blog that requires real people for comments!

      Hi Jen
      The new commentluv premium plugin has an inbuilt trackback controller..You can disable them, block them from certain domains..etc..

  29. AstroGremlin says

    Not all CommentLuv users are DoFollow, but they are made aware of the option (with multiple settings for giving comments DoFollow status). Based on my experience and a gut feeling, I suspect that the vast majority of CommentLuv blogs have some criterion (such as a number of posts) to startr sharing the love. WordPress, on the other hand, defaults to NoFollow, and it takes a special plugin or (ugh) code to change that setting. I manually set my blog to DoFollow. Now I use CommentLuv to do it!

  30. Bob Lipply says

    I just want to add that you can also use a plug in wherein you can identify if it’s do-follow or nofollow blog. However, it’s more convenient to use the codes mitz’s mentioned earlier if you are still searching for blogs. Keep up the good work mitz!

    So it appears the link is limited to 3 words… (see my comment above)… oh well.

    But on a more interesting note, it saw that I recently wrote an article about the BBB tonight. How in tarnation did it know that?! I don’t have CommentLuv running on my WordPress site!
    Toby Foote recently posted..Why You Shouldn’t Trust BBB Accreditation

    • mitz says

      I have commentluv here so bloggers can showcase their latest posts. And yes I have limited the name words you can use because people were going over board! :) If you are interested in finding out more about Commentluv I have a new post about it on the homepage.

  32. Toby Foote says

    Very nice information about ‘dofollow’ and ‘nofollow’. I installed the SearchStatus plugin on Firefox and the ‘nofollow’ links are showing up with a pink background. I’m going to leave it turned on, so I can find sites that will give me linkage credit for reading and commenting on their blogs. I’m surprised sites just don’t use CAPTCHA instead to turn the spam comments away.

    BTW, I’m new to CommentLuv, but what is it saying when it asks “and then @ your keywords”. To experiment, let me add three here: @dofollow @nofollow @SearchStatus

      Toby You misunderstand.
      What you should do is write your name like this: Toby Foote@Classroom antics
      Then you will get the same thing as my name. I wrote: Danny@Pole chain saw
      This way the anchor text to your link will be “Classroom antics”
      Which is much better SEO-wize because if somebody wants to find something about “classroom antics” then they are more likely to write something like “classroom antics” but now you are setting yourself up to rank high in Google for “Toby Foote”.

      I hope this cleared it up.

  45. Danny Strampel says

    Great stuff Mitz!!
    I didn’t think of the commentluv searchstring yet.
    These are some that I use:
    inurl:forum
    inurl:profile
    intext:visitor messages
    inurl:member
    site:.edu inurl:blog “post a comment” -”comments closed” -”you must be logged in” “KEYWORD”
    site:.gov inurl:blog “post a comment” -”comments closed” -”you must be logged in” “KEYWORD”

    I always start by checking the links of my competition. Sometimes they have more sites so I can’t find all the links through checking one site, so I search for the names they use on the fora and blogs.
    That’s how I find a lot of links with not much work. Just find someone who is already doing what you want to do (finding links) and check what he/she already found.
    I hope this helps anyone.

        Sometimes you find one that auto allows. But most of them are already spammed into another dimension.
        But it’s a numbers game. Just keep trying and some of them will stick. But if it’s worth it, that’s hard to tell.

          I have a post that outranks my homepage…I was wondering why so I checked the backlinks.. It turns out it has a .edu link that someone else made by using my page as a reference.

          • Danny Strampel says

            There you go, haha. I do believe that there are worthless .edu links as well.
            If it has no PR, many outgoing links. Then it’s probably not worth much.
            But if you manage to get a PR5 .edu link, then that will probably be a big boost :)

            That’s probably an advantage of using keywordLuv. If people can get a real dofollow link then they might build some extra links to the page that they put their link.
            I do that all the time, try to give my link some extra juice :)

        Definately agree, also If you do website design you will notice that everything works better in either FF, Chrome, Safari etc. IE seems to want to do everything their own way and cares little about CSS it seems. Even IE9 which was meant to address alot of issues seems more out of date than FF was 2 years ago lol!

      • says

        Hey, just stop…why you don’t have a little fait in google? of course FF is more complex but chrome is 3x faster than FF. And don’t forget, FF is more older than Chrome and is still not as fast as Chrome…just give it some time…and you’ll see that Chrome will be an excellent browser.
