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 Many of the other dofollow blog directories and dofollow search engines I’ve seen are manually created, and are often out-of-date and littered with nofollow blogs.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!

  1. 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.


  2. 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

    1. 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.

  3. Do follow websites, blogs etc helps in building back links of a website which is very useful technique to make your site ranking god in Google.

  5. 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.

  6. 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

    1. 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.

  7. 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!

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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!

  12. Great post!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is very informative. Thanks for the useful information which allows me to know more about Do-Follow.

  14. I have found it hard to find do follow blogs that are worth commenting on. If fact many of them the comets are closed or there is no place to place the comment

  15. i just tried ur custom searched and got alot of no follow blogs. I actually don’t care if the comment  is do follow or no follow. What I care is if the comment is auto approve.

    Any thoughts on that ?

    1. It’s been a while since I built that search, so it’s quite out of date by now. Unfortunately, there’s really no way to programatically determine if it is autoapprove or not.

  17. Hello, Mr. Geeklad, I stumbled upon your site and glad I found this resource, thank you for sharing your expertise.

    brick repair spring tx, and found blogging useful for SEO. Thank you.

  18. Recently Google has said that they will still count the nofollow link as an outgoing link in terms of the distribution of page rank from your page. Though again it also depends on where that nofollow link is placed. Placing a nofollow link at the bottom of the page has the least impact, and when placed at the top of the page, it carries some impact.
