I don't know if anyone will read this, but I have quite a lot to share about blog commenting, as it is still a major method for optimization. However, there are some pretty strict rules you have to follow closely. Also, they require quite a lot of time and effort. Here is how I do blog commenting, in short:
I use mainly moderated blogs. You are able to "sneak" a link, if your comment adds value to the post. An opinion on a topic you are competent about. Another view, even a correction to the author. Moderated blogs are easy to notice - it is posted regularly there.
The quality of the links is determined by the following factors:
1. Relevance of the sources in which links are made: area relevancy, topic similarity, business blogs;
2. Contributing to the website's (author's) mission of providing valuable and infromative content by:
- expressing a related opinion based on reading the whole material and having a view on the topic;
- providing another point of view;
- sharing important information with the readers of the post.
3. Avoiding link farms (link and article directories)
4. Link neighbourhood on the website, and on the page you post on. How many links are there in the content of the page?
Result: comments with links approved in relevant, high PR sources, with answers by the authors (they even thank me for commenting), etc.
