Get Backlinks To Your Site Or Blog – CommentLuv and KeywordLuv

Get some Luv

I have to throw this post in as a follow up on my previous post on how to get backlinks to your site or blog. I have to admit, I have been a little sneaky. I knew what I am about to reveal already before and could have posted it straight away, I just thought it would do nice in a second post! 😉

Anyway, apart from commenting on do-follow blogs, there are blogs out there that actually have CommentLuv and KeywordLuv enabled. I will explain that in a minute. But I can tell you right away, if you can find a blog that has all 3 parts enabled (do-follow, CommentLuv and KeywordLuv), plus it is related to your niche, you have found absolute GOLD!

Now, what actually are CommentLuv and KeywordLuv? And how are they used to get backlinks to your site?

CommentLuv is a plugin (for WordPress, Blogger, Typepad and Godaddy) that, when installed on a blog, will reward the readers of that blog with a backlink to their latest blog post if they leave a comment. It is actually encouraging people to comment as they are getting another valuable backlink to their own site by doing so.  Plus it is worth thinking about installing it on your own blog, as it is most likely to increase traffic and comments, thus making up for any “linkjuice” loss you might experience by the extra backlinks to other sites.

KeywordLuv is another plugin (this one, as far as I know, only for WordPress, but correct me if I am wrong) which rewards commenters (does this word even exist? “Commentator” can’t be right, though, can it?) by allowing them to place their keywords as an anchor text to their website when commenting, therefore giving them improved anchor text! Having your keywords as anchor text linking back to your site helps your site to rank better for these keywords with the Search Engines, and has therefore the potential of generating more traffic. There is a great explanation of it on this KeywordLuv Plugin site.

Now, to get CommentLuv you don’t have to do anything special when commenting on other blogs. It happens automatically.

This is different for KeywordLuv. To get KeywordLuv and get this fantastic opportunity to use your keywords as anchor text linking back to your site (glee!), all you need to do is comment on a blog that has KeywordLuv enabled and then where you have to fill in your name, you do it the following way: [email protected]. This will then ensure that your site’s address – which you will have to provide as well – will be linked to your keyword! It’s as easy as that. Let’s say I would enter “[email protected] Diet Weight Loss” that would then display as “Petra from Healthy Diet Weight Loss”, and “Healthy Diet Weight Loss” would be linked to my blog (no, not this blog, my other blog about weight loss 😉 !)

Pretty cool tools, hey?

Now, to finish up here, I have to supply you with a list of blogs that have those nifty plugins, don’t I? Well, I have come across a few sites that have gone through tremendous trouble to provide us with just that, and we all can be very grateful for it! Here are a couple of lists to get you started, but all you have to do is do a Google search on “KeywordLuv blog list” or “CommentLuv blog list” or something similar, and they will show up!

Untwisted Vortex – DoFollow, CommentLuv and KeywordLuv Blog List

[UPDATE – 23 August 2009 – It looks like Untwisted Vortex has reverted back to no-follow and has also taken the blog list down. :( ]

SEO Traffic Guide – will give you a list of DoFollow and KeywordLuv blogs

Please remember though: Do leave meaningful comments ( not just “great post” or something similar …) , don’t spam, and like I told you before, the best blogs will be the one’s that have to do with your niche. Keep commenting on “normal” blogs as well, it all helps in the long run :)

  2. Mac Jones says:

    They are both a fantastic ideas. I’m getting my own blog going and they look like the perfect tools to attract new visitors.

    • Petra Weiss says:

      Mac, I believe they are! I now just have to find the time to really look into implementing them on my blog! Much success to yours! :)

  3. Nice info about commentluv and keywordluv. I never thought that they can be useful. Thanks 😉

  4. Per Lustig says:

    We know blog commenting can turn into spamming, but if done right and respectfully, commenting can be a good addition to a link building strategy as you know. So we have tweaked a custom google search to search for specific keywords and only return blog posts and web pages built on a popular open source CMS that all allow dofollow links in comments. You can find the search tool at http://commentlinkbuilding.info

  5. Both Plugins are just amazing. love them

  6. mike says:

    I love commentluv but never heard of keywordluv until now. I think you have convinced me to try to add it to my blog. Thanks for the great article.

  7. simon says:

    I knew about commentluv but not about keywordluv has anyone used keywordluv if so how many links did you get?

  8. Kerry says:

    Can you provide more information on this?

  9. Petra Weiss says:

    @Kerry, I am not sure what you mean…. what else would you like to know?

  10. I found your blog on google and read a few of your other posts. I just added you to my Google News Reader. Keep up the good work. Look forward to reading more from you in the future.

  11. We’ve been using KeywordLuv for quite a while now and appreciate just how helpful it is. We’ve been recommending it to every blogger.

  12. I have to say I love commentLUV (no pun meant there) It is so easy to use and install into wordpress!

  23. Really its the best idea to get back links to your site or blog.
    Because most of the blogs provide no follow links and only submit
    by name..

  24. Thank you, this is really interesting. Can’t wait to try it!

    • Petra Weiss says:

      Norhafidz, I think the combination of commentluv, keywordluv and top commentator rocks! I like to give back to my readers, and think the interaction is just a lot more fun. I see you already have commentluv and top commentator, so installing keywordluv will complete the picture! Thanks for letting me know that you liked my post :)

  26. Andrew says:

    I have the keywordluv installed on my blog. I think it is great when I can spread some of my link love around for others. It is so stupid for blog owners to not install the do follow feature.

    I have several PR 3 blogs that have commentluv install, so please contact me if you want some BL love. Thanks for reading.

  37. Simon says:

    Commentluv is a great plug however if the site owner has the nofollow tag on in the comments then it loses half of it’s value since the search engines will not follow it. I guess if people go through the comments section and click on the links I guess it’s okay.
    I also like to reward sites that have commentluv and give them some ’sponsorluv’ as a means of thanks. So a couple of clickies are on the way
    I enourage others to do the same.

  38. Jessica says:

    Nice to see you add this plugin. They should get your blog alot more traffic since people love keyword and comment luv. I’ve seen people talk about the good and bad points but it seems to have helped some sites do very well with alot more traffic and comments and good page rank.

  39. I’m not a pro when it comes to evaluating blogs – and most of what I’ve seen over the years leaves a lot to be desired. But you can take my word for it that your blog is everything they say it is and more! Seriously – nice information. I am so happy to read your blog!

    .-= Cat Sneezing´s last blog ..Link Exhange =-.

    • Petra Weiss says:

      @Cat, commentluv simply shows the last blog post of the person who is commenting. KeywordLuv actually gives the commentator the possibility to add a keyword to their comment and link it to their blog, thus building very valuable backlinks – if the blog on which is commented has dofollow installed!

  44. justin says:

    This is a great tool for bloggers…all thou it gets difficult to find such blogs that have keywordluv or commentluv enabled. Great way to generate backlinks!

  51. Robin says:

    I keep getting an error message in the keyword love field, but I want to go ahead and comment on your question can commentator be used in your explanation above? Yes it can. Commentator is “the writer of a commentary” though usually longer. Comment is an explanatary note or remark, and commentary is an explanatory book or set of notes or critical remarks. So maybe 2 posts by one person would qualify. I could not find commenter anywhere, which seems like it would be a word. Remember that Web 2.0 is now an accepted word, so maybe commentor or commenter will become a dictionary word as well. (smile) English is my first language and I am still learning,LOL

    • Petra Weiss says:

      @Robin, thanks for clearing that up for me! And is anybody else experiencing problems with keywordluv? If so please let me know and I will try and fix it! :)

      @Steve, I believe so too. There are talks that passing all this “link juice” down and out of your site will harm your PR, but I think long term it will definitely benefit your site because you encourage interaction and keep your blog alive!

  54. Ben says:

    I have added keywordluv, commentluv and top commenters to my blogs but so far am having a hard time finding it difficult to find other blogs in my niche that have it. Perhaps in time Google will figure out how to spot those blogs and match the widget with the niche.

    • Petra Weiss says:

      @Ben, it is very hard to find keywordluv blogs on the Internet. It even looks like the blog I mention in this post as one to list a list of keywordluv blogs has taken the link down and reverted back to nofollow. The best thing to do is every time you stumble upon one just bookmark it and then keep coming back to it. One I found quite good is http://hospitalera.com

  55. jim says:

    Indeed, the keyword luv plug in do entice commenters into writing more relevant comments on do follow blogs if only because they are assured of high quality link because of this plug in

  56. Ruri says:

    I heard that many blogger give up using dofollow, commentluv and keywordluv because of the developer of these plug-in cannot keep up with the wordpress version. since wordpress always upgrade to new version all the time.

  57. mark says:

    I love keyword luv, especially for the use of my own blogs, because it has been such a helpful tool to reward readers for their contributions. You are totally right that these types of blogs are difficult to find, and many go back to being no follow.

    Great article. The way i do my searching is simply to put my keyword plus the phrase [email protected] (since this appears under the comment box on keywordluv enabled blogs.
    eg, “my phrase” “[email protected]

    Works a treat!

  62. Tim says:

    @Ruri:
    Is there really such a big change that for minor releases (e.g. 2.8.2) all the plugins don’t work anymore? That would be dangerous for WordPress at all, since WordPress is that popular thank to the huge amount of plugins…

    • Petra Weiss says:

      @Keith, these blogs are quite hard to find. Best is to bookmark every blog you come across that has these plugins enabled. Also do Google searches for “KeywordLuv installed” or something, that will come up with some for sure.

  64. Holly says:

    Another way to find keyword sites is to put in “keywordluv” + your phrase.
    .-= [email protected]´s last blog ..Home Lamps: Choosing Type, Location, and Style =-.

  65. Commentluv is the best. Thanks for the information. It really does help out personal blogs too. I have come across many blogs that use commentluv, maybe I have just been lucky.

    Some good tips and advice here. I’m a fan of commentluv, but sometimes it doesn’t seem to want to work for me.

  106. Cory says:

    I’ve recently stumbled upon this whole CommentLuv and KeywordLuv plugin. It is a great way to find some related blogs and leave relevant comments. The key is to write comment that is just not spammy, but at least to the topic at hand. Otherwise more and more blogs will disable comments or convert to no follow.

    so meaning comment luv + keyword luv is a total benefit for commentors, but not only for commentors also for for the blogger for they are actually receiving traffic over and over again..

  108. biju says:

    Google can’t ban you for link building , thats what Google is all about. However they can devalue your ranking if your link building is not relevant ( ie. if you have a web marketing blog and you link aggressively to sites unrelated to your niche ) ..Google are on the look for link building activities that are not relevant to your niche and are done by automated bots…Google loves manual and relevant link building.

  109. Thanks for the ideas on the backlinks..I’m going to try it now

    Hi Petra,

    This is great information you have shared. My website has been there for many years now and I never thought much about backlinking. It always got about 10000 hits a month and I just thought it was fine but reading your blog has got me thinking about it. Am surely going to use your tips.

  111. Tom says:

    Great site I am a big fan as well. These plug-ins are awesome I use them on all my blogs. It provides great new content and a good way to get backlinks. I think everyone should use these plug-ins!

    It’s good to see some comments that are relevant to Commentluv and Keywordluv, plus add to the subject without sounding trite or spammy. Most of the comments I receive are cookie cutter tripe. I even get the same exact comment from some commentors on all my sites. Come On! I support the premise, but if you find your comment deleted, there is a simple reason.

  113. Daniel says:

    Hi.
    These plugins are a nice manner to enhance the experience of the bloggers and commentators. In my experience the best marketing tips are available from real marketers websites and blogs and not from internet courses or the so called experts

  114. admin says:

    Neat thing these plugins.

    What I’d suggest to create your own original KeywordLuv, CommentLuv list is to:

    Google(KeywordLuv + wordpress + YourKeywords)
    and
    Google(ComentLuv + wordpress + YourKeywords)

    This way, you’ll get blogs and posts related to your keywords :)

    Hi Petra – Glad to see you’ve now enabled do-follow for this site.

    I enjoy the traffic these plugins bring, but to get it, have to endure (and delete) the ‘drive-by’ meaningless comment of the ‘link-junkies’

    Hopefully there will some day be a solution – Rhys

    Apart from building backlinks, they also help networking among the bloggers as we start visiting each other’s blog. I have installed comment luv & top commentator on my blog.

    For those wou might need this, I’d suggest to add to the post where you state that your blog is a KeywordLuv, CommentLuv, TopCommentator DoFollow Blog, that you write “please tell, in a few words, the whole world how your blog great is your blog”. This will discourage the “KeywordLuv is great” comment.

    And to disable the “Allow comments on this post” in the settings of the post.

    This way, commenters can’t comment on the KeywordLuv post, they have to comment on a post relevant with the purpose of the blog.

    Relevant Google search terms include:

    Google(“top commenters” + wordpress + YourKeywords)
    Google(CommentLuv + wordpress + YourKeywords)
    Google(DoFollow + wordpress + YourKeywords)
    Google(KeywordLuv + wordpress + YourKeywords)

    This way you hit blogs related with yours.

    Bathroom vanity is right, you need to set up it that way. I have a post telling people that if the post is not related to site or if they do not post something that is useful or relevant, it will get deleted. This has gotten me less posts, but more relevant ones, but the spam still shows up.

    I must say that like many people I find it very frustrating that I even have to consider these options, being the best at SEO does not mean that your site is better, some of the highest ranked sites have no content of value, its a matter of how good you are about doing things like leaving this comment rather than if my site is of any value or not.

    KeywordLuv seems like a good idea. But maybe Google is going to give these kind of links very little value later on? :-)

    Your website is fabulous and I’ve looked at hundreds of websites in the past two weeks. So much interesting and intriguing stuff on your site I don’t know which way to turn.

    Not only am I a beach lover myself but I am also a displaced Australian living in the good old USA.

    Niche websites are the way to go and it’s definitely a challenge.

    Did you put this website all together by yourself? I love the layout, interesting links and of course your theme.

    Hi, just starting out and learning about web sites, SEO etc. Whilst doing some research on commentluv, keyword luv and top commentors, came across your comments and advice, and have decided that I will employ the use of commentluv on my own sites as I love the idea of not just for the sake of hits to my site but getting getting feedback in this way. Plus its also nice to hear others comments, as sitting at home trying to get into web design can sometimes make you feel alone, but commentluv does bring likeminded others to communicate their thoughts with you.Luv it,Andy :-)

  145. Walter says:

    I think keywordluv is awesome. It’s a real benefit to both the blog owners who are getting a lot more comments which Google see as “fresh content” and of course the commenters who actually get a link in exchange for their participation.

  146. Ben says:

    Create great content and post it on your website. When you have great content on your website, you entice other webmasters to share your content on their sites by providing a link back to you

  147. Dena says:

    I appreciate the use of both commentluv and keywordluv because it quickly communicates that while the blogger values comments, there is an expectation that commenters behave correctly. This is especially important when a blogger is nice enough to offer a do follow signature link; it sets the expectation that anyone commenting should put a reasonable amount of effort into it.

    Thanks.

  148. sam says:

    Indeed, the keyword luv plug in do entice commenters into writing more relevant comments on do follow blogs if only because they are assured of high quality link because of this plug in.

  149. monik says:

    I think it is important to watch what links your site is getting. Low quality spammy back links are more likely to hurt you ranking then help it at all. Be careful what you link too.well i am using do follow,keywordluv,commentluv on my site and getting good result.

  150. Jill says:

    CommentLuv is amazing. I use it on all of my blogs and it really does increase the amount of REAL comments from readers, as there is an incentive for them to post. I like how you can post your name for a link. Thanks for the post.

    how does commentluv give me an anchor text link with my keyword? you said it does that for me. do i use my keyword as my name?

      @Rita, it should say how it works underneath the comment rectangle. Usually all you have to do in the “Name” field is enter your [email protected] keywords, and it should work!

  152. Emma says:

    Great post…just kidding. My wordpress sites are all do follow, and I did have keyword luv installed , but the damned spammers made my life a nightmare. I would spend hours going through comments just to find good ones that were worth publishing , plus I heard when a comment is left the search engines are pinged so it is in my interest to keep getting comments.
    But….then I saw comments exactly the same appear on my other sites…So I seached in inverted commas in google for the entire comment and lo there were hundreds , obviously some posting software for posting to thousands of blogs the same comment!

    And whats the deal with the Russians and the comment with a hundred links! or the ones that tell a story like ” I went party and been having cake and nice girl smile at me like acai berry buy now(link) an dhse have horse that look like car she say buy acai berry now(link) cheesecake banana dribble cuddly toy etc. etc.

    Here is my most recent … “The typical formula is to calculate your pre- operational expenses and add three months worth of your estimated monthly expenses to get your required startup capital. Take note however that depending on the nature of your business, the number of months…” put it in google keeping the quotes and see where the webmaster has posted!
    Emma

    Ps ref to vanity sink…Top commenters is the devil…I had to delete that , visitors would come to the site enter the exact same name as a top commenter and substitute their link and that link would then be the top comment on all pages!!

    Yeah, Commentluv is a great plugin and it helps new bloggers a lot.

    In reply to @monik, right above: I think low quality backlinks aren’t just the new blogs (as mine). We need to take some look if the blogs that are commenting are of only one page or if haven’t more pages, as Contact and About. If they don’t, surely are spammers.

    I use Commentluv on my brazilian blogging blog too, and it’s working very fine, specially on the idea of getting more comments on posts.
