Guest post vs. comment backlink

Building quality backlink  and concrete reputation in blogosphere is not easy as bloggers do think of the early hour of blogging carer and to bring this into fulfilment some quality ways to successful blog backlink must be given trial and error attention to know which and which is the best way of blog quality back-linking.

Building reputable backlink can take two valued and reputable ways which are going to be considering in the course of this article.

Building a reputable backlink from blog comment is gradually deteriorating as many bloggers tend to flood fellow blogs with both
scrupulous and unscrupulous comment for the sake of blog backlink and as a result of this, lesser priority is placed on blog comment to the extent that many blog don’t care to responds to most of their blog comment because it is considered to be spam.

Guest post on the other hand is one of the best and easiest ways to advertise oneself on the internet, guest post generate huge traffic and not only traffics, it is even the best way to build backlink from a successful blog on the internet. Guest post is common all over the internet but getting an approval of your guest post by the author is where many people quietly quit for guest posting most especially when not placing high priority on the blog owner guest post rules and regulation or the so-called guest post privacy policy.

Now, the above may be considered as a digression; blog comment vs. guest post, which of it is a quality backlink source? And below are points to be considered and put into consideration before thinking of best source of backlink to go for; either comment or guest post. In the next phase of this article some list of backlink comparism have been considered about what to consider on blog comment and blog guest post as the best backlink source

                                                      BLOG COMMENT

Below are important information to take note before choosing comment as best  blog quality backlink.

1 Before blog comment can be seen by most visitors or blog readers it undergo some scrutiny by the blog author whether it is a spam or not, and if not it will be publish and if otherwise the blog author may decide to hit the spam button in his/her blog dashboard by just rendering your so-called comment meaningless and useless, and likewise; the hope of getting a backlink from the comment is gone with just one click.

2. Everybody want to be the best and be seen as one; often many bloggers want to be the first commenter  whose comment will appear in the comment box first, if per-adventually, such comment is worth of publish it might bring back some back link and even more comment  to your blog but what faith have you in comment backlink when your comment falls about #70 +, do you think any benefit can still come out of that?

3. Blog comment hardly generate a huge traffic and backlink as well and if the need be, then extra comment must be made in virtual all blogs either in a related niche or otherwise and one knows how hectic that is going to be. 

                                                                    GUEST POST

1. Although blog guest post is not easy, it is hectic and some rules and regulation must not be violated if one is to qualify for a guest post author but the result of it is not far fetch and chances are that; that getting quality traffic from guest post is very high, even getting as much as the blog owner is able to generate from the post you authored in his/her blog.

2. Guest post is one of the best ways to advertise ones blog in other professional and successful bloggers blog, where you tell people what you can offer in your blog as a result of how quality your guest post is. 

One clear  thing that doesn’t need to be argued guest post is that it start  a blog post itself which visitors will have to read and understand before getting to the comment section and the comment left might be approved or not but once a guest post is approved then the backlink will be generated  and if guest post is well structured and well-constructed with understandable language, the blog author may not further add or remove any single word from the post after scrutinization before publishing it.

Now that we have solely considered both side of blog backlink, you now know what work best for blog backlink; comment or guest post?

  1. Yes you correctly said doing commenting is not of worth as much as compared to that of Guest Post because guest post generates huge traffic and no doubt about it. In fact there is no comparison among two.

  2. Most blogs use nofollow rather than dofollow links in their comments, making commenting for a backlink useless (there are some exceptions of course). That's why I believe you should always comment for humans rather than for search engines.

    Guest blogging is better for backlinks, but it's suspected that even these type of backlinks will be given less amounts of value in the upcoming months by Google. For now, guest blogging is one of the most effective way to get backlinks.

    James said it all; nofollow in blog comment render it useless and it shouldn't be since it will encourage some to make more comment for the benefit of backlinks as a result on nofollow they may stop commenting and they will rather go guest post despite the fact it's hectic sometime.

  12. I think both guest posting and and commenting have merit, even if the comments are nofollow links they are still backlinks. If you are a newbie it’s easier to make connections with other bloggers by commenting. I think it’s probably easier to have your guest posts accepted if you are an established blogger.
