Continuation of Blogging, Commenting, Link-Backs, Photos and SEO. A Beginner's Guide

THE Daytona Beach Real Estate & Community Events blog. By Lisa C. Hill, "THE SMART CHOICE!"

keyboardA few days ago I wrote a blog post to explain the basics of technology and search engine placement, and how we help each other when we post blogs with links to each other in them. I also addressed the importance of photos, and gave a very basic explanation of SEO (Search Engine Optimization). The general idea is that we all need to help each other.

This post is to address the one thing I left out of the last post. It was in the title, but I didn't really address it in the post. The part I left out is the importance of commenting on other blog posts, seo helpand how it can help YOU!

In a nutshell, each time you comment on a blog post, it leaves a little link back to your blog. If you read my previous blog on this subject, and understood the basics of SEO, you'll realize how this can help you. It's similar to having another blogger insert links to your blog, or blog posts, into their own blog post. It helps your SEO.keyboard

Lastly, in order to get the most out of all this blogging and commenting, when you comment on someone else's blog, try to use key words from their post, within your own comment. If you're not sure about their keywords, use the cities mentioned, topic being discussed, and/or what's in the title, opening sentence, and closing paragraph, assuming that blogger knows about SEO. If they don't, hopefully this is one more post that will help  =)  Regardless, commenting using the system I just described help that blogger's SEO. And we're now back to "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" or "Pay it forward".

The more bloggers who know about this, the better we all can help each other and keep Active Rain blogs in the good graces of the Google juice, which brings us full circle in helping ourselves by helping each other

Happy Blogging and Commenting!

Lisa - As someone who enjoys reading and commenting on others blogs it has been nice to know that it has SEO value for me as well.  But I just learned sometihing new from this post. You said Lastly, in order to get the most out of all this blogging and commenting, when you comment on someone else's blog, try to use key words from their post, within your own comment. I never knew that how I write those comments will help to get the most from the SEO.  Thanks for sharing.  Now in addition to thinking about what I write in the comments, I will think about how I construct them as well.
