Last week we saw some ugly Google ranking judgments on my site and my friends' sites. I guessed it to be related to links out. At this point I would like to say I don't pay attention to it much...until there is a reason to...like a rejection from an advertiser. Well, then it becomes a different story.
So my friends, today I wanted to touch on Comment Etiquette #3, I've written Comment Etiquette #1 Lose Word Verification for Comments Already , and Comment Etiquette #2: How to Install Comment Widget on Blogger on Blogger Broadcast, if you are interested in visiting the links, I would love to have your feedback.
My Comment Etiquette #3 is a tip that I learnt: The comments you left on someone else blog, if they are published benefit "your" blog, creating a back link to your site. If you go to Google search and put your blog's name in the search box, you will see a lot of your comments pop up from another blogger's popular post. If the post you comment on is popular, it will certainly make its way to the top of the search list. What your comment does to the post you commented on is add to the content of the post. Although, that is nice and preferred, it isn't always necessary and benefit the post if the blogger has already written a fantastic and informative post.
In sum, all the data points have to work together, the comment link is just a portion of the equation of Your Page Rank Number. And as usual this post’s sole purpose is to open up a discussion among ourselves. It isn’t intended to be a recommendation since it all depends on what you’re doing with other venues of your blog and maintenance.
Here are Self Sagacity's Thursday Two Questions #43
1) Do you understand the concept of back links, for example the comments you left on other blogs with your link and what it does?
2) Do you have any rules about publishing comments on your blog, what would drive you to delete a comment, besides it being obviously inappropriate and spam?
