The Do Follow Blogs Movement

Don’t you just love blog commenting? I definitely do

And it’s not simply because I want to get backlinks from Do Follow blogs. It’s really good to learn from other bloggers, and get valuable information from other blog commenters too. It is always beneficial to participate in an interactive community. Eventually, the internet today is all about building relationships, and the sharing of valuable content.

Notice how I place emphasis on “do follow”. This is because if you’re commenting to attract backlinks to your own blog, if you’re doing it on No Follow blogs, you are not getting any backlinks.

Do follow vs. No follow blogs

Do Follow and No Follow attributes comes into play whenever you leave a comment on a blog that has your link.

Do Follow blogs tell the search engines to follow the link left together with the comment. NoFollow blogs, on the other hand, tell the search engines NOT to follow the link that is left with that comment. That is to say with the former, you can get link juice in the form of backlinks; in no follow blogs, you don’t.

By default, a WordPress platform is a No Follow blog. But in order to increase visitor involvement, a lot of bloggers (like me) have turned their blogs into Do Follow blogs. If you’re new to blogging or if your blog is still set to the default No Follow, you may want to consider turning yours into an interesting interactive community.

Here’s what you should do: identify what plugins you will need, and let your visitors know you have joined the DoFollow movement.

How to Do Follow your blog

Simply do a search for Do Follow plugin. Select one, install it and activate it! This will remove the NoFollow feature in your comment section. You can install plugins to prevent spam comments when you do this as well. Always keep in mind to let people know that you are a Do Follow Blog.

Some visitors may have no idea what that means, but those who do know will often times leave a comment on your blog!

One last thing

When you are on a DoFollow blog, make sure you leave quality comments. Well, one liners are okay, but if you can ask some questions or add valuable content, then that’s really great! Search for Do Follow blogs that are in the same niche as yours and have good traffic flow to make blog commenting really work for you. This will allow you not only to leave a great comment and get more traffic, but gain a backlink as well.

    Pretty much all of the blogs we run are set up as dofollow. I have always felt that giving a link back in return for a comment is a fair exchange. For the most part we get just as good of comments and no more spam than on our few nofollow blogs.

    Me too, I don’t do it just for SEO or backlinks but I love reading interesting posts that will help build myself online at the same time interacting with others.

    I think most of the blogs right now are participating the do follow movement. It’s ok to make blogs a do follow and it’s possible for spammers to do a lot of spam, it’s your responsibility to remove those irrelevant post and approve those relevant post.

    i dont use do follow blogs for getting backlink but It’s really good to learn from other bloggers, and get valuable information from other blog commenters too .

    Thanks for the great post. I also do blog commenting but most of the blogs are no follow.

    I agree, most blogs are no follow. And what do you mean by “how do webmaster get the links”?

    I believe tag “nofollow” should be eliminated. If person has commented on your site, he most probably read the content and this is exactly why that blog is online. Poor quality comments that are not following the theam most certainly should be moderated.

    If only WordPress supported the do-follow movement, over half of the world blogs would instantly become do-follow!

    WordPress does support dofollow. If a site as the keywordluv plugin enabled it is a great site to comment on.
