UPDATE 2014: I DO NOT recommend comments in blogs be dofollow because you are more likely to be penalized for inbound and outbound link penalties if they are. I also recommend you turn off keywords if you were permitting them.
UPDATED Sep 24, 2011
A DoFollow site is one that allows the search engines to follow a link from their site to yours. This increases the number of incoming links to your site, increases the likelihood that someone will locate you when searching, and improves your site’s position in the search engines. We all have a limited amount of time so why not make it count?
Focus your NEW community building in blogs that believe in dofollow! Read about How KeywordLuv Benefits us All
- DoFollow blogs are more likely to have really active and loyal communities and commentators
- Bloggers who believe in Do Follow are far more likely to visit and comment in YOUR blog
- They have a positive effect on your blog’s position in search engines like Google
Do remember to maintain your involvement in any active communities you’re already visiting and keep an eye out for quality blogs and visit them even if they are not DoFollow. Then use the DoFollow Tools linked below to find new places to participate.
The use of DoFollow and plugins like CommentLuv, KeywordLuv,
Lucia’s Linky Love (anyone have a link that works or know if the Lucia’s Linky Luv plugin still works?) and others is growing so spend some time and select blogs that you will really benefit from interacting with because the content they offer adds value to what you do. Implement plugins that encourage conversations.
WARNING: Some blogs that Use CommentLuv and/or KeywordLuv are No Follow. We use the Highlight NoFollow links function in the SEOBook Toolbar to verify them. We also recommend adding your dofollow sites to and and using this Verify Dofollow service.
Some blogs do revert to no follow because it does take a little more time to manage SPAM. The lists below will contain some blogs that are not still DoFollow but they are still valuable for locating blogs. You can usually use the SEOBook SEO Toolbar to instantly see whether comment links in a blog are dofollow or nofollow. (Some sites do block this function).
Or use the DoFollow Blog Search Engine to quickly determine if blogs are really Do Follow. You can also use that tool directly to search by keyword. It returns only those blogs that are confirmed to be Do Follow at the time of your search.
