21 Days to a More Profitable Blog Tutorial > Day 19! Use this secret comment strategy of Deep Links Back and SEO
(Good morning everyone! It’s 5:09 PM and I’m alive and kicking….a very good thing indeed!)
Hey there, glad you could swing on by for Day 19! And how was your day yesterday? Mine was quite good indeed – I proactively gave myself permission to succeed AND permission to miss adult sparring when I was seized by an insane desire to reteach myself material I had forgotten several months ago (scary material, I might add – I’m no PHP person).
Wow, that was really really really difficult to face….but I did it! I’ll be using that experience to teach my kids in Camp Ling this summer.
Today is Day 19 of my series, 21 Days To A More Profitable Blog!
And for today, I’d like to discuss:
Shopping with a list vs. Shopping with your eyes closed
Great mental image, eh? One lets you zero in on exactly what you need…while the other is kinda sorta one size fits all.
If you’ve been online blogging now for, hmmm, lessee….. at least 76 seconds, you’ve probably heard that commenting at OPBs (other people’s blogs) is a great way bring in traffic. The theory is, the blog owner will follow your link back to your site and then comment as well.
Lots of people have written about the art of commenting – you can check out:

Do read the above articles – they’re very good.
This is an excellent, proven method of generating traffic…but even more importantly, it can be a superb technique for building Deep Links back to your blog.
Now, Deep Links are links that go to specific pages at your blog instead of your blog’s home page. IE, a Deep Link back to MY site would be:
The first link goes to the direct article, 3 Easy Ways to Appear ‘Way Smarter Than Your Peers.
Now…think for a second. Search engines give better relevancy to links that contain keywords. So! The first link has the keywords
- easy, smarter,peers
If my link instead was
The keywords that would be highlighted include:
Now. Let’s say that you have written a niche blog post about, oh, Father’s Day. Most likely, you’ve included the keywords
in the title, right? Well….wouldn’t it be just plain spiffy if you could get DIRECT deep links back to your page on tons of other blogs as well?
‘Course it would! And here’s how.
Before You Begin – Write a blog post.
It’s kinda sorta difficult to get links back to a post that’s non-existent. 🙂 Make certain your headline contains the keywords on which you are focusing.
Step 1 – Go to Google and search for blog posts that use CommentLuv and deal with the same topic.
It’s a very simple search indeed – just look for:
- enable commentluv TOPIC
You could get really modern and high-tech by tacking on:
Now, the next step is very important. Don’t just click on the links returned from Google – instead, copy/paste them to another browser. That way, the fact you’ve found their blog via CommentLuv isn’t screamed out in the referrer logs.
Step 2 – Read the post – is it relevant?
If the post is relevant to your topic, well then, post a response…CommentLuv should return a direct deep link back to your original blog post that has the keyworded title within it.
Do NOT underestimate how important this is!!
I regularly do the above whenever I write blog posts that focus on specific topics. It’s really helped generate targeted niche traffic (and my SERPs) very very welll.
Step 3 – Rinse and repeat
Return back to Google and go to the next commentLuv-enabled blog and do the same thing. And again and again and again and …
you get the idea.
End result? Targeted deep links that are pointed within your blog are established on other, valid, excellent blogging sites.
In today’s lesson, you learned how to build deep relevant links back to your blog.
And of course (you really didn’t think I’d close a post without this now, did you?) an opportunity now arises!
You’ve done everything I’ve written for the past 19 days….let’s now focus upon that about which you write. What can you write that brings people back, day after day?
HOMEWORK – Tell me now….in what are you an expert?
