SEO Tips – How to Find Dofollow Blogs

Last post in the seo tips series we looked at creating a nice strong theme for your blog. Very very important for staying ranked for your chosen keywords. In this post we will look at finding related sites from which to build dofollow backlinks

Few assumptions before we start
Tools Used Here
We use a few tools for this post in the series as there is alot of information we need to gather.

Seoquake KeywordLuv Search
Post Termonlogy
Here I will explain the seo terms used in the post, for ease of reading.

Dofollow: Strictly speaking there is no such this as “dofollow” it is more like the absense of the “nofollow” attribute. However, the quick explanation is a link that allows search bots to follow it and pass on their link juice.

Nofollow: Attribute used to prevent a link from passing link authority. Commonly used on sites with user generated content, like in blog comments.

Link Juice: Link juice is the currency of Google. In other words, it’s the secret sauce that allows you to beat your competitors for rankings in Google.


Step 1 – Install Seoquake

Seoquake is available for almost every browser and it is an amazing seo tool. It can tell you alot of very useful information about almost any website you visit. For now I wont get into all the ins and outs of its use as that is an entire posts worth of info. I will just cover the basics needed for its use with this post.

If you do have any trouble with the plugins the FAQ on the seoquake website it very useful: http://www.seoquake.com/pages/guide.php


Step 2 – Finding Related Dofollow Sites

This is by far one of the most time consuming jobs in building backlinks. There are thousands of sites related to your site topic but only a handful of really good dofollow sites. Luckily there are a few tools that can really help you.

First of all we visit http://www.datasystemsplus.net/keywordluv-search-engine/ where there is a great little tool. Just enter your particular keyword and it returns a list of sites that could be dofollow sites. It uses the google search api to search through some predetermined parameters. In this case it is looking for blogs that use keywordluv and commentluv. In the below example I am searching for “seo tips”:

So as you can see here we have been given a google list of some links, for this example I will use the 3rd link given. On visiting the site I activate my seoquake and spot a few important things:

Seoquake Results
It might not seem relevant now but knowing the backlinks for a site are a big big help.

  • Point 1: Seo quake is active
  • Point 2: The page has pagerank of 0
  • Point 3: The site has 14,820 inbound links

So we have a little formation about this page but no info yet about the comments on the page. We scroll down the page in huge of some comments and links embedded in comments. Sometimes you might have a little hunt around a blog to find posts with comments and links. For this page its easy and we scroll down and see this:


Seoquake Results
Results from seoquake for the comments and links on this page.


  • Point 1: User comments are nofollow
  • Point 2: Site owner comments are dofollow
  • Point 3: Embedded links are nofollow
Page Conclusion
As we are looking for dofollow links at this time we wont post a link here. However it is always useful to keep a track of every blog you visit and if they are nofollow or dofollow and the pageranks. I always save my visits like this:

  • Dofollow or Nofollow
  • Pagerank
  • Comment type; disqus / commentluv / keywordluv (most blogs say on them which system they are using)
Remember dofollow are great but nofollow are also needed. Never only link from dofollow links. Google will not like that at all.


Continue Looking for Dofollow Blogs…………….

Failing on my first link I repeat the process until I find a nice dofollow blog. As I said this can take a little time which is why it is very important to keep track of all the sites you visit via your bookmarks. It makes revisits and backlink building for any new sites so much faster.

And hey presto on the second page of my little keyword search we find a winner:

Upon visiting the site I do have to do a little digging to find a post with comments, but when I do it is perfect:

Seoquake Results
Results from seoquake for the comments and links on this page.

  • Point 1: This site uses keywordluv. Big big bonus
  • Point 2: Site uses commentluv. Nice extra
  • Point 3: Some good PR pages, I found a PR3
Page Conclusion
As you can see I already went ahead and posted a comment and took advantage of this nice blog. I have also bookmarked it and will return to it a little later and do a full pagerank search and hunt out pages I want to link from.

This is a keeper. I will also add this site to my dofollow list here.
Remember dofollow are great but nofollow are also needed. Never only link from dofollow links. Google will not like that at all.

There you have it, one nice and simple way to find dofollow related sites on which to build backlinks. Of course there are many other ways to look for dofollow sites and build links. I will cover a good few of them in the coming weeks.

      Thanks for this. I hadn’t heard of KeywordLuv before.

      Finding good blogs to comment on can be more of a slog than I expected, especially if you’re looking for high PR. I’ve started using Seo Quake and also SEO for FireFox is very helpful.

      Thanks for the pointer on SEO Quake. I’ve been using SEO extension for Firefox for a little while but I suppose it doesn’t hurt to have a few more tools at your disposal. I think most people struggle to find dofollow blogs and I know that I am not alone on this one!

      Do-follow blogs that are usually listed on sites normally don’t have anywhere to post comments to, so they are relatively useless. It’s best just to do a manual search rather than try to search lists which never have anywhere to post anyway.

      Great post on a great technique to uncover some gem high PR blogs. I have a small problem with SEOQuake though, it retrieves all Pagerank but will not sort in order from high to low or vise versa. I am using Firefox 8.0.1. Any help would be great

      But still, I want to try it out and test it here.

      By the way, right click is disabled in your site. But this does not stop all people from copying your content.

        Commentluv is always a good way to generate traffic. Nofollow or dofollow. Simply having the plugin on a high pr blog will pull in more views :)

      These are really helpful tips. I like how you explained the usage of Seoquake and how to analyze web pages. In link building, the most important is to contribute to the discussion. You should be able to show to the web master that you are there not only to post links but to share thoughts too.
