A natural link structure is going to be very diverse, including all sorts of different link structures like links from blog comments, links from web 2.0 sites, links from forums, links from videos, links from article directories, links from social bookmarking sites, links from podcast sites, links from file sharing sites and any other sort of links you can imagine. Diversity in links is what occurs due to natural demand. Like for example the a terrorist attack. The news spread instantly across all sorts of mediums, very soon people talks about it in all sorts of places, like discussion forums, personal websites, video sharing sites, blog comments, article directories, news sites, picture sharing sites and what not. And that’s the kind of diversity that’s natural in Google eyes and that’s the kind of linking strategy that’s going to stay.
Ok enough for my disclaimer. Let’s get to my topic on praising the commenting strategy.
It’s just around 2 months since I started incorporating commenting as a core day to day traffic generation strategy and the results are simply awesome. Not only did my site recover from the google penalty which you can read in my previous post, I also started seeing signs of Google love. Google in fact ranked my site on first page for my main keyword. Also my Alexa rank seems to be becoming better each and every day. More than all, I started getting all the needed traffic which converted to subscribers and comments to my blog posts. And again all of the magic happened in just 2 months. So let’s dive in and have a closer look. I want to do it by first of all showing you the snap shot of my website’s alexa ranking in the last 25 days.
Can you see how my Alexa global website ranking jumped from #589,335th position to #433,493rd position in 25 days ? Isn’t it awesome ? Before you even start thinking about how it happened, I want to show you another image.
The above image shows you how my website is ranking for my main keyword “online income”, on the first page of Google global search. And it’s sitting at the 9th position in first page right now. I can’t guarantee if it’ll rise up or if it’ll drop, but one thing I know, I didn’t do much for the last 2 months, since my site’s return after vanishing from Google due to Google penalty. And for the last two months all I was doing was commenting on blogs. But I am not going to stick to just commenting, because I know it’s not going to look good in google eyes like I mentioned at the beginning.
Anyway my point is that commenting does work if you do it right. I am not talking about commenting on sites where all the other spammers hang around and drop their spam. I am talking about legitimately reading blog posts on high quality blogs and writing your comment based on the content you read. If you are thinking about commenting just for the sake of back-links without minding to read the blog post, you are simply wasting your time, as your comment is probably going to be deleted and kicked to the trash folder. So go ahead and start gaining knowledge by reading posts by authority blog owners, then drop quality comments that adds value to the post. Wishing you better ranking in google and lots of targeted traffic.
So, are you implementing commenting to your daily blogging duties ? If not, let me ask you why not ? If you are already doing it, let me know what results you are getting ? Is the time spent well worth your effort ? Do you agree that doing just commenting alone for your traffic generation only can result in drop in Google rankings ? Let me know by posting your valuable comments below. Thank you in advance for your comments. I look forward to reading and replying to your comments.
