DoFollow Blog Search

Dofollow vs. Nofollow

The majority of blogs implore the nofollow tag in their comments. That means that when you specify your website URL when leaving a comment, the link created does not help to elevate your website’s status in the algorithms search engines use. Although not really an “official” term, people often use dofollow to describe blogs that do not use the nofollow tag. In other words, comments left on these blogs do help to elevate your website’s status in search engines.

Automatic Dofollow Detection

I had made a few attempts in the past to try to automatically detect whether or not a blog was a dofollow blog or not, but had little success. I’m pleased to announce that my latest attempt has proven successful, and I’ve managed to put together some code that will automatically detect dofollow blogs. It works relatively well and I’ve used it to identify more than 2,000 dofollow blogs.

Unlike other custom dofollow blog search engines, mine uses an automated algorithm to identify dofollow blogs. Many of the other dofollow blog directories and dofollow search engines I’ve seen are manually created, and are often out-of-date and littered with nofollow blogs. I will update my search engine periodically, to ensure that it remains up-to-date.

For lack of a better name, I’ve dubbed it The Ultimate DoFollow Search Engine. The search is powered by a Google Custom Search Engine, but the back-end that builds the list of dofollow blogs uses code I put together myself. If you do use my search engine to post comments on dofollow blogs, please do so responsibly.

Commenting on DoFollow Blogs

Do not post comments along the lines of, “Nice site. I’ve subscribed to your feed.” Such comments are likely to be moderated and tossed away into a pile of useless nonsense posted by others seeking quick and easy backlinks. Such comments are pointless and do not contribute to enhancing the information provided within the article and subsequent discussion. Most dofollow blogs moderate their comments, so you will get nowhere fast posting comments like this.

I would recommend submitting a question to the author about the article. It will appeal to the author’s ego of being an expert on the topic discussed in the article, and it will not come across as a feeble attempt at creating a backlink to your site. Asking a thought-provoking question is a great way to solicit an engaging conversation from the author.

If you do happen to come across a nofollow blog when using the search engine, please let me know. I’m still fine-tuning the crawler and working on ways to improve it. Enjoy!

    Thanks for making me aware of this feature. I had no idea what the difference between dofollow and nofollow was.

    Currently, I am using JomComment because it comes with lots of features that I'm too lazy to program in myself. JomComment automatically has the “nofollow” box checked. I have just disabled it, which presumably will make my site a “dofollow” site. I allow comments to post immediately, but I get an email as soon as comments are posted so that I can pull them out if they are not appropriate. Also, I use CAPTCHA to keep the spam engines out, thus preventing people from using my site to help boost their own without “paying a toll” by leaving behind a good comment.

    Thanks again for the information. Methinks my site is better for the experience.

    I tried the dofollow on a couple of my blogs but the comments were just wasting my time and patience so I returned to nofollow.

    I do look for dofollow blogs and used tool on another site but it was pretty useless as almost 100% of the blogs I landed on were using nofollow.

    I gave yours a try and love it so far, thanks

  • Yeah, you do have to perform some moderation to keep spam comments away. I like Disqus, because you can moderate via email or from the blog post page. It makes it pretty quick and easy to flag spam and useless comments that way.

    Having great content is just not enough to make a website show up in the search engines. While promoting a web site, backlinks (the links from other sites leading to your site) are very crucial. One of the ways to get backlinks is commenting on blogs having similar content or subject as your own website.

    Great search engine although it needs more tweaking cause it returns many nofollow blogs.
    but today i commented on 6 pages of PR3 DoFollow using this tool

  • It's been a little while since I've updated it. I'll run an update today
    and see if it helps to yield better results.

  • I've been at this dofollow think for a bit and have enjoyed moderate success. do you suggest not linking to blogs unrelated to your niche?

  • It's probably better to link to blogs in your niche, but it certainly
    doesn't hurt to get inlinks from unrelated niches as long as they come from
    trusted sources.

    On my blog I use a plugin called “Lucia'sLinkLove” which allows the author to set how many times a commenter comments before their links become “dofollow.” That way the fly-by-night commenters aren't rewarded with “link love.” The search engine's a cool idea!

  • Hi
    For finding dofollow blogs ? google only helps while searching !!

  • Excellent site, useful information .Thanks for this great post – I will be sure to check out

  • I hate spammers -so much so that I had to cut off comments completely on my site. But with encouragement I have opened them up again. All comments are monitored through 2 spam filters -so I catch many of them.
    Why don’t spammers get a real job? Geesh.

  • Commenting is a really good way to increase backlinks, however, some people tends to make spammy comments and there are soooo many of them! Sometimes it good to make lots comment, but we have to make quality comments too, not just “Me too” or “Interesting Blog” or “Interesting Article” Comments.

  • I liked your article very useful to me. I will come back and read the article again.

    More info on the web site Linking

  • I wish everyone would read your blog regarding useless spam blog posts. I probably shouldn't let it bother me but I am put out each morning when I have to delete all of the pharmaceutical and designer handbag posts from my blogs. I just don't understand why people keep dumping this junk out there. Is there something I am missing?

    Thanks for for post. Have a great week!

    hey some useful information here.
    I’d like to add my blog too.

  • Question – I recently switched to DisQus but can’t see how I can make my blog dofollow. Any suggestions ?

  • Unfortunately, I don’t think DISQUS has a feature to do this. You’d have to
    dig into the plugin code and make those modifications yourself.

  • Yes – You are right. I was able to change the code and make my blog do follow.
    Please take a look:

    Sometime today, i will write a blog post about how to make your disqus dofollow.
