Dofollow Blogs - Leave Your URL Here
Is your blog DoFollow? Leave the details here in the following format:
Keywords in the name field allowed: Yes/No
Extra: Top Commentators, Recent Comments, CommentLuv, etc.
Here are my dofollow blog details:
Keywords in the name field allowed: Yes (appropriate keywords of 2-3 words only)
(Please note that this thread is only for the blogs whose name field in the comments section is dofollow right from the first comment. If the comments section is nofollow or it requires a minimum number of comments before they become dofollow, this thread is not for you)
Reason: Added my blog
I know what you might be thinking... Kahin sala spam to nahi chhod gaya
When we comment on a blog, the value in the name field gets hyperlinked. By default, this URL is added with a 'nofollow' tag which they say does not pass any link juice. So, to award their commentators with some link juice, many bloggers use some plugins to remove this 'nofollow' tag and thus the comments on their blog become dofollow...
My blog was a dofollow blog once upon a time, but if you make your blog dofollow, be prepared to face the flood of spam comments.
Yes I too agree with Mohan. I also experienced the same. It will be a painful job to identify the legitimate comments from the flood of spam, automatic moderation is almost impossible.
Only comments are no follow but links from the guest posts are do follow
The risk of spam can be decreased with the two most awesome plugins : Akismet and Bad Behavior. You will really notice that no spam comments are coming now ...
Use Spam plugins. It will help you.. My Blog is www.ThePankajGupta.Com . It is dofollow.. CommLuv, Top Commenter Widget, Contests for top commenters.. (Must read the contest atleast)
So whats the point here? Use Dofollow or Nofollow? Or something else................
What does that mean?
Guys you know my mental status! Quit throwing hints come to the point!
@Addy: Simply put, dofollow comments help your readers increase their pagerank (and search engine ranking). This way, the blog owner gets more comments since the readers are are motivated to comment... Reference reading http://www.semiologic.com/2005/02/05/prepare-for-more-comment-spam-not-less/
@Mohan hehehehehe you won't even take the name! ROFL!
@Gouri Thanks for the heads up!
My blog is DoFollow for a long time.. and still its dofollow :D
http://www.techhamlet.com/ offer dofollow links in the comment area and also have CommentLuv and the Top Commentators widget installed!
Wonderful blog you have buddy. A dofollow PR4 blog... Fantastic. Came across it just a few days ago through your thread. In fact, it was your blog and Mohan's blog which made me start this thread to find out more of such blogs...
Hehe... thanks mate! :D Glad to here that my blog helped you to give this great idea! Keep it up mate... waiting to see more such ideas from you :D
Add Me in - I just made it Dofollow
That's nice one Websnacker. You can now go on publicizing it through dofollow directories. Here are 2 of them:
Thanks Gouri. I can still find a nofollow attribute in the XML. May be it belongs to one of the widgets but can you cheack and confirm if my blog is indeed Dofollow. Any help will be appreciated.
If you see in your comments section, you will find 2 links for each comment: One for the avatar and another for the name field. 'Avatar' is nofollow and the 'name field' is dofollow.
Thnaks Gauri. So, do I have to change anything to make it Dofollow or leave it the way as it is. Pls do reply.
Your blog is a dofollow blog. But the final effect in your comments section is getting like this:
You are asking search engines not to follow a given link. And then, immediately after that, you are asking them to follow it.
So, to bring in consistency, it's better to make the gravatar link also dofollow.
Hi Gouri... I know its more than 2 months but I have still not been able to change the gravatar link to dofollow. any help on how to do it or should i mail you? thanks
But Disha this thread is for dofollow blogs not for "new bie"..
Your blog is not a dofollow blog.
UniversityZero tech-blog is a dofollow blog because I believe that the readers deserve every bit of link juice that they get from my site. Enjoy.
PS. Please comment only if you have something to say.
It was not dofollow when I checked out.. And now the domain itself is not working.
Check out this blog : This is Do Follow Blog :
That's a beautiful dofollow blog, Rajan. I like the neatness you've maintained it with...
Wazzup with do follow & No follow? how do i know what kind of blog is mine?
Shit!! I never knew i was this illiterate when it came to these technical things!
Can you say it by visiting my blog? If yes...here's my link http://nkr4068.blogspot.com
No Himanshu, that doesn't... (We are interacting one on one after a long time )
Gouri - I have read somewhere that a blog's google page rank decreases if you make it a do follow blog. Do you know if this is correct?
Sowmya, I don't think we can establish a trend on this. In fact, I have seen few dofollow blogs getting higher PR. I saw:
http://www.petra-weiss.com/ go up from 1 to 3 (still a dofollow blog)
http://chenpn.com/ go up from 3 to 5 (dofollow only in top commentators section)
http://www.kongtechnology.com/ stuck up at 5 (dofollow only in top commentators section)
... & so on.
If properly publicized, dofollow definitely brings in more visitors. But most of the visitors would be interested in using keywords in the comments. Those who don't mind keyword usage in the comments should definitely give it a try. Others can try it provided they have sufficient time for comment moderation (linking to undesirable sites may harm your ranking).
By the way, I see that you are doing extremely well in spiritual blogging. It was nice to see your blogs at a time when I am starting out on this front: Daduram
Nice blog but I couldn't find any comment with link. Hence, could not ascertain whether it's dofollow or not.
And what? you stopped blogging because someboby is copying your content? That's quite funny..
My blog is dofollow
can add keyword with valuable comment
Mine is a do-follow blog
But at times I get fed up with the spams I get. And many a times people only use keywords in the name field. At times, out of frustration I delete the comments having Keyword instead of name. I mean it looks weird when the name reads like "Holiday in France"! How do I reply to this comment- " Hi Holiday in France, thanks for dropping by"!!
For past couple of months I have been thinking it of making it a no-follow blog, but then I also want to give credit to genuine readers of my blog, so drop the idea everytime.
Maybe I'll come up with Top Commentors widget and make that do-follow. But as of now, my blog is a do-follow blog.
That's right! But I don't see the comment links at all in the source..
I didn't get you !! It is a do-follow blog. I have intense debate installed on my blog. You can check whether it is do-follow or not by using the firefox add-on "NoDoFollow".
Awaiting your reply.
Anshul, you can see here how the post page of your site looks to the search engine bots:
It's not showing the comments part at all. Once the link are present, we can determine whether they are dofollow or nofollow.
You can compare it with a single post page of other blog using intense debate.
Thanks for the tool. Do you know what could be the reason behind this and how to fix it?
I am not quite sure as to what's happening. Why not try changing the theme and see what happens..
Hey, Anshul how r u ? Remember I'm from gurutalks. I think plugin like Akismet works fine for spams, I use it. Ya your blog is do-follow blog, that's nice !
Yes Anshul, Sandeep is right. Your blog is a dofollow blog. The link in the name field depends upon the profile the commentor selects.
Hi Karthik, the name field in comments is missing.. (may be you deleted it by mistake) And the gravatar section is still nofollow..
