Finally, I decided to make this a DoFollow blog. Well, this is nothing to do with lack of comments or anything like that. As a matter of fact, I already receive a reasonable number of valuable and relevant comments per post. Being somebody who hates to moderate comments I am fine with the current situation.
However, by taking this step, I thought I may benefit from it in more than one ways. First of all, the traffic to the blog may slightly improve and more important the reach (number of page views per visit). Secondly, it is a good way to connect to other blogs in the same niche which I believe may widen the network neighborhood and hence help with the SEO aspects.
Benefits for you as a commenter
The SEO benefit mentioned above is just not for me but more for the commenters. By getting a direct dofollow link to your homepage directly from an inner page here, you are at the better side.
Further, though not in 100s of hits, you may receive some referral visitors from this blog as well. Overall it is a win-win.
I had this image of being less-friendly in the blogosphere mainly due to my bold speeches in the social media and hence I would love to attract more friendly discussions on the blog than outside of it. Hopefully, I can get more friendly.
New comment policy
We have a new comment policy now. Before trying to comment here, you may please go through it once so that there’s no misunderstanding – just in case your comment get deleted in the moderation process.
Basically, I would give weightage to relevancy to the topic, same or similar niche, comment quality etc before deciding to approve a comment. Well, I have been doing this for a while now but, henceforth, it’s going to be a bit stricter.
Over to you…
Though there are a lot of people who now argue that dofollow commenting do not have any benefits, I personally believe and see that dofollow blogs are still attracting a lot of interest.
What is your take on allowing dofollow commenting? Do you think it will be mutually beneficial for SEO and traffic? Do you think the commentluv will add further value to it (though for now I am not thinking of deep linking from comments section)?
