Using blogs to get search engine juice is something you can do easily to increase traffic and improve your website’s ranking with very little effort.

In order to generate back links with blogs, three things are necessary.

First, you must first find relevant blogs that provide “do follow” commenting on their site content.

After carefully reading the blog, you need to make a useful, relevant comment on the content that the blog’s administrator is likely to approve.

In addition, you need to include relevant anchor text with your back link in your comment.

Once this is accomplished, you need to repeat the procedure with as many blogs as possible. “Rinse and repeat” is the name of the game.

When using blogs to get search engine juice, there are a number of reasons why including relevant anchor text is important, but for now let it suffice to say that it is.

When allowed by the blog administrator, try to include your website URL back link in the blog’s comment box.

Be sure you use anchor text properly to describe the website that you are directing people to visit.

To do this, you need to include some HTML code to create your back link with your anchor text.

Make sure that you include RELEVANT keywords in the anchor text.   This insures a higher ranking for these targeted keywords.

Never use keywords in your anchor text that are already part of your website’s title or domain name.

It’s better to focus on new unoptimized targeted keywords that you hope to rank higher with, than keywords that are already optimized and included on your existing website.

For instance, if I were using blogs to get search engine juice and was leaving a comment to generate a back link to www.dogtraining.com; I would use alternative keywords in my back link that would be relevant to my target audience such as “How To Housebreak Easy To Train Breeds” and post accordingly.

These keywords are RELEVANT, are not already optimized on the website, and would direct visitors from the blog that I made the post on, to the specific post (“How To Housebreak Easy To Train Breeds”) on my website.

When using blogs to get search engine juice, focus on building a back link campaign on relevant blogs that have the same or similar theme as your own site.

This is a double whammy because in addition to increasing search engine traffic, it also attracts the attention of visitors who read your blog post and link to your site.

Don’t bother wasting time making posts on sites that will not attract targeted visitors to your site.

Time is money and wasting time costs you weather you realize it or not.

Here are some tips on how to go about identifying RELEVANT blogs:

Firefox has a free plugin available from SEO Quake that allows you to find blogs that allow “do follow” back links at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/collection/seo-tools.

You should already have a file of RELEVANT keywords and phrases that relate to your niche market.  Use these targeted keywords for your blog comments.

If your website does not already have individual pages of articles with high quality content, it’s time to create some.

Your website content should be able to attract and hold the attention of visitors who link to your site via your blog comments.

It’s a waste of your time and effort to get visitors to click on your site and have them click out because of unrelated or bad content.

Create articles that provide information on specific topics, then post a comment on a related blog with your back link. This generates traffic much faster and easier than posting on unrelated blogs.

If you are interested in obtaining repeat traffic, never direct your visitors to a sales or so called “money” page.

Page rank is important to the search engines, so when using blogs to get search engine juice, focus on commenting on blogs that have a higher page rank than your site.  Avoid linking to unestablished blogs.

This is where the SEO Quake plugin comes in handy.  It readily identifies a blog’s page rank.

As a side, it should be noted that commenting on educational (.edu) and government (.gov) sites will tremendously increase your search engine juice because of how difficult they are to obtain.

The internet is changing and blog commenting matters now more than ever before.

Google makes more than 200 changes to their algorithm every year and the latest penguin update has hit people building obvious and manipulative back links hard.

Using blogs to get search engine juice is perfectly legitimate “white hat” link building.

Google loves it, the blog owners love it and so do the visitors.

I have yet to find a blog owner who doesn’t appreciate a sensible comment from someone who knows their niche inside and out.

Since using blogs to get search engine juice is a perfectly legitimate endeavor, why not get started today?

Hey there would you thoughts stating which blog platform you’re utilizing? I am planning to begin my personal blog in the near long term but I’m getting a tough time making a decision in between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The main reason I inquire is simply because your layout seems different then most blogs and I am searching for some thing unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

I prefer the WordPress platform for several reasons; available plugins, available themes, etc. The theme used here was chosen because it is easy to change, manipulate however, it is no longer available.
