That’s right folks. I’m finally doing it. I will be releasing The Ultimate Whitehat SEO Manual very soon. This will be a ebook/video series that explains how to do completely whitehat SEO that kicks the shit of of ANY blackhat techniques, AND will NEVER get you banned from Google. I think after this last Google update, it’s time for people to start doing things the right way.
I recently had a website I own jump to the #5 position for a million+ search term. All the competitors that were previously on the first page had vanished, and when the dust settled, there was little old me, the guy that doesn’t cheat. Awww, I feel so bad for them. NOT!
So to give you guys a preview, I’m going to include a little excerpt from one of the chapters. This is an introduction to REAL Blog Commenting, not Spamming.
The goal of this task is to comment on related blogs to your industry. The comments must be genuine and contribute to the conversation. The best way to get a comment approved and to further correspondence is to ask a question in your comment that you think others would love to know. Don’t think about “getting a link” here, just think about participating in your industry and it will all fall into place. Don’t worry about pagerank and all that. Just look for blogs with decent Alexa rankings. I will show you more about that later.
When deciding what anchor to use, always check the existing approved comments. If the blog is approving comments that have anchor text, then go ahead and use anchor text. If all the approved comments are people’s names, then just use your name. Don’t worry about optimized anchors and nofollow/dofollow. You need imperfect diversity, and this is where you will get it.
Also, try to comment on posts that are less than 2 weeks old. You will have a better chance of getting them approved, and once you are approved for one comment, the blog owner may automatically approve your comments for other pages on his blog. Now you can comment on older posts and starting participating in his blog regularly. Just keep it useful and relevant. Always be passive, never get into an argument, and if someone calls you out or pisses you off, just be apologetic and passive. Once you say something, it’s there forever.
You can keep track of what blogs approve your comments by using my software, Backlink Inventory.
Also, remember that if you genuinely contribute useful comments to a blog with a large readership, and you look like you know what you are talking about, you will get tons of traffic to your blog from people that find what you have to say interesting.
Make sure once you get a comment approved on a site, you stick with the same anchor, email, and URL.
If you can’t use an optimized anchor, try to use your company name, most blog owners will let you get away with this. Try to build a relationship with the blog owner and other frequent commenters. It will pay off.
