Why Nofollow Blogs Are Just As Important As Dofollow Blogs

When you become familiar with running and promoting a blog you will no doubt hear about blogs being divided into dofollow and nofollow categories and you will quite possibly be scratching your head and wondering what this means.

To scale it down; a dofollow blog means that any link to your blog that you leave via a comment (or even a guest post or a link exchange) will count towards increasing your backlink count and your Page Rank count.

A nofollow blog blocks this kind of thing.

Because of this a lot of people will tell you that nofollow blogs are not worth your time when trying to increase your page rank or back links. You should avoid them like the plague and just stick to commenting on dofollow blogs (like this one!).

I do not agree with this at all.

In fact not only do I disagree with this but I actually actively encourage people to spend just as much time commenting on nofollow blogs.

Why would I encourage you to comment on nofollow blogs when they won’t help you in your quest to increase your page rank?

The answer is: TRAFFIC

That is correct. These nofollow blog might not help you gain a page rank but they sure as hell can help you bring in more visitors, especially if you comment on big blogs like John Chow, Shoemoney, ProBlogger, etc.

Every month I get a nice steady stream of traffic from these kind of blogs and some of them are on posts that I made months ago.

Give it a go and let me know what you think. 🙂

    Hi, I think someday google will cancel the do or nofollow label, it is unfair for the useful comment, you give a valuable comment, but because the nofollow, you cant get a link as a rewards, though google define this label, but the spam is still exist.

    Excellent point about nofollow blogs. I've been trying to target dofollow blogs over the past couple of weeks, and I can't believe that this will be a valid strategy for much longer. Out there beating the underbrush trying to find the occasional dofollow blog to mock up a post to just seems wrong on some level.

      You know what? I have recently started to forget whether a blog is dofollow or nofollow. I just comment if I have something to say on the subject of the post.

      Might not be a good idea but I have a feeling your prediction will be coming true soon. 🙂

      You have a good point there. I've just looked at my blog list and there are more dofollow that interest me than nofollow ones. 🙂
