Comment on SEO Tutorial by SEO Gold Coast Services.

LOL, there’s no point adding links to the comments here for several reasons including this WordPress site isn’t here to benefit other sites SEO wise.

1. I manually delete comments with links or at the very least remove the links from the comment. It’s obvious when someone is spamming comments for links, even when the comments are manually added, they tend to be short comments and not well formed.

2. Currently (February 2014) this is a dofollow WordPress site, that means if you add fully formed links like this one WordPress SEO Anchor Text it will pass full SEO link benefit (passes PageRank/PR). I refer you to point 1, if a commenter adds a clickable link like the one above to a comment I’ll manually delete it.

3. Currently I have this WordPress site running under the Stallion Responsive theme which has an option to disable the addition and showing of comment author URLs. This means commenter’s can’t even add an author URL, and if a comment SPAM tool adds a comment with an author URL the URL isn’t shown here (only my author link works, theme feature).

4. If I turn author URLs back on the Stallion Responsive theme (which BTW I develop) converts the links into form buttons that are styled like links, they pass no SEO benefit (invisible to Google).

So there’s no point adding links on this sites comments even though rel=”nofollow” is disabled (it’s a do follow blog). The only websites that will benefit from links from comments are sites linked to by ME. This website is not here to aid other webmasters gaining links, you want links create some awesome content other webmasters will link to (link bait), don’t waste your time commenting here.
