I started a blogroll for blogs that have removed the nofollow tags from their comment area about two weeks ago and already the blogroll has grown to a list of about 110 sites! It’s gonna be huge!
The blogroll is called the Do Follow Blogroll, and if you have taken the time to remove the nofollow tags from your site manually or with a plugin I’d be happy to add you to the list. Just visit the blogroll page and leave me a comment.
While you are on the blogroll page please notice that there are now some logos that you can use above your copy of the blogroll or as a link to your Do follow blogroll page/post. You have five different colours to chose from. Zorn from Don’t Fear the Truth was kind enough to make these graphics for us. All I ask is that you copy the graphic of your choice to your own computer and or server – do not link to the images on my site.
I’d like to take the time to thank everyone who’s joined the blogroll so far. Many of the list members are going around and visiting the sites on the blogroll and leaving great comments.
As you might know by now, sites that Follow give you a real link that can be picked up by the search engines, so commenting on these sites provides more comments for the site owner and they in turn give you a true link. Great for bloggers and visitors alike.
All I ask, and I’m sure many of the blog owners will agree is that you do leave a valid comment. Don’t just stop by and say “nice post”. Please only comment if you really have something to say. I do think the majority of people have been leaving great comments but I just wanted to mention this because I know the do follow bloggers probably don’t appreciate people leaving lame comments just for the sake of getting a link. Find a post that you connect with and leave a good comment.
Likewise, don’t fill the body of your comment with links to your other sites unless it really pertains to whatever the comment is that you are leaving. Links inside the body of comments look spammy and in fact, spam plugins tend to think it’s spam and end up putting it in the spam folder. A lot of bloggers don’t go through their spam folders and just delete, so that means you’ve just wasted your time.
Again, thanks to everyone who joined the list. I hope that you are all getting something out of it. For those that haven’t signed up yet – what the heck are you waiting for?
