Should I comment on High domain authority blogs to get a nofollow backlink? Is nofollow blog commenting sites help my domain to achieve a good DA over the period of time? In this article I will try to share about the importance of nofollow link building and how it is really useful to gain good domain authority for your domain name.
Recently I have been reading about domain authority and page authority related articles and trying to understand what is domain authority and how domain authority impact your search engine ranking. The calculation of domain authority includes many Google search engine ranking factors and it is a real complex matrix to understand.
Importance of Nofollow Links To Improve Domain Authority
When we talk about a good link profile, what is that mean in actual in Google’s eye? We all know the importance of a dofollow backlink, but how many people realize that a nofollow link also has the same value in Google’s eye. Do you think I am just talking something meaningless? No, let me explain.
Google tell us to build a back-link profile naturally. Now naturally means, as a blogger or user one should participate in forum discussions, write guest articles, engage in blog commenting and submit in directories etc. In case you have 10 links pointing towards your root domain and all of them are dofollow links, then just wait to watch a big Google penalty in coming days.
Why? Because it is not natural. A a human being how come you are 100% good, similarly one should show Google that he/she is participating in everywhere to build links without trying to manipulate the algorithm ranking factors.
Now in such a context, if you have 1:1 ratio of dofollow & nofollow links pointing towards your blog, then you are pretty sure that you are going as per Google’s terms & condition of link building. You can also join the discussion in MOZ about domain authority & nofollow links.
When you are able to make your link profile good and growing, you will gradually achieve a good domain authority over the period of time. So, don’t just stop when you find a high DA blog with nofollow comment system. Simply write a useful comment and add value to the article to make things natural.
