How To Find Do-Follow Blogs

I launched a blog for one of my new clients, and I wanted to build some backlinks for them. If you’ve got the budget for it, there are a number of paid directories where you should submit your site. But my client wants to take things slow, and work off the organic traffic first before throwing more money at the site. So I was forced to find some creative ways to build links for him.

Blogs are a great way to get your link out there. But the majority of blogs use no-follow tags in their comments section, which won’t help you in your task. But there are a number of blogs that allow their link juice to flow on to their commenters URLs. You’ve probably seen this image before:

u-comment-i-follow

Many bloggers who offer do-follow links will have this image somewhere on their site, to let their readers know that they don’t believe in no-follows. The easiest way to identify a blog that has do-follow links in their comments is the presence of the image above. Now, that’s not an easy task, since Google can’t read text within an image file.

But since most people’s alt text will generally read as “U Comment I Follow”, you can search for this text string in Google Image Search, and you’ll find a list of sites that have this image on their site! Find ones that match up with the niche you’re working in, leave some relevant comments, and you’re well on your way to building some backlinks!

There are other methods to find do-follow blogs (including searching for the filenames themselves, of which there are many variations), but this is an easy way to get started. Good luck!
