DoFollow Blog Commenting
The most common known method for DoFollow link building in the blogging world is via commenting on DoFollow blogs. The key to commenting on DoFollow blogs is to not come off as a spammer. All you must do is:
- Read the article you are about to comment on.
- Look for a comment policy that states what the blog owner will or won’t allow on their website.
- If you can’t find a comment policy, take a look at previous comments. If you see that no one is using keywords, that is a good sign that the blog owner isn’t approving comments with keywords, marking them as spam instead.
- Leave a valuable comment. Make sure to say something that can only be applicable to the post you are commenting on, as opposed to something short and generic like “Great post” which most blog owners will look at as spam.

DoFollow Social Bookmarking
Another method for DoFollow link building is via DoFollow social bookmarking. Most social bookmarking networks require you to register, and once you have done so, you are able to submit links to those networks. Those links will DoFollow links back to your site. Be sure to read the network’s guidelines, and only submit relevant links to the network. If you are, for example, submitting cell phone review articles to a health related social bookmarking site, you may get banned in the long run.
DoFollow forums allow links in posts and in your profile signature. While forums are a great way to build links, be sure that you are being a valuable member. Read posting guidelines, and contribute community, as opposed to just blatantly spamming the message boards with your links.
DoFollow Article Directories
Article writing can be a great way of gaining relevant links back to your website. DoFollow article directories allow you to post links, either within the article or on your author profile. If you write an article thematic to your website, you will have a page with great keywords linking back to your website.
DoFollow Social Networks
Certain DoFollow social networks, such as LinkedIn and Gather, allow you to have links to your website in your profile, and those links are DoFollow. Even if you don’t plan on heavily using the network, creating a simple profile will be a DoFollow link building opportunity. Just be sure that, if there are privacy settings, that your profile is viewable to the world.
