Outdated Seo Tactics | Website Magazine | Blog Comment Spamming

In the May issue of  Website magazine I found an interesting article on blog comment spamming as an outdated SEO tactic; it was doubly interesting since I get a lot of comment spamming.

It says that a lot of webmasters still aggressively pursue this method as their primary link building strategy, when in fact Google introduced “nofollow” link tags (signal to search engine spiders to ignore a link) and is known to devalue links in blog comments.

The reasonable and legitimate alternative, says the magazine, is to write interesting , well-written and thought-provoking content, which will generate editorial links — naturally occurring links from other blogs and news sources that search engines value far more than comments in blog posts.
