We all want to improve our rankings, right? I read in this Neil Patel Blog that high quality comments still matter. And that there is still some value in commenting on high quality blogs within your niche. But then he also talks about the CommentLuv plugin and how it may be a good way of getting a backlink to your blog. If you google ‘CommentLuv Blogs’, there are many articles that rank highly that claim to list ‘100s’ and ‘1000s’. But sadly a lot of these are old posts that have not been updated recently. The list of CommentLuv blogs they contain

  • aren’t recent – some haven’t been used for years
  • some have even been deleted!
  • and some of the blogs listed don’t even have the plugin any more!

So here is my own list of blogs that is current, tried and tested.  A lot of these blogs aren’t on any previous lists, as I have come across them personally whilst searching for interesting articles to read.

List of CommentLuv Blogs – That Are Current and Work!



If you want to boost your blog’s DA then one way to get backlinks is by leaving comments on a blog that uses the CommentLuv plugin. 

What Is CommentLuv?


CommentLuv is a plugin for blogs that allows people who comment on your posts to add a link to one of their own posts. 

But is it a do-follow link? No. Not always. 

Some blogs do have do-follow CommentLuv, but these are quite few and far between. Blog owners have to set the comments from CommentLuv to be ‘follow’ links, and many do not do this.

You may need to be a registered user of the blog with the CommentLuv, and may need to comment on these blogs several times before you get accepted to be given a do-follow link. That ensures that spammers are discouraged.


So Why Use The Plug-In?


 So, you may ask, why even bother with the plug in if you aren’t getting or giving a do-follow link?

When you comment on another person’s blog, you should already be getting a no-follow link back from that blog to yours anyway.

But the plug-in goes that little bit further by letting you add a link to the comment that you make. If you comment on a CommentLuv blog, you usually get to choose from a list of the last 10 posts on your site. This means that you can add some extra value to your comment. You may even be able to link an article from your own blog that complements the host’s post perfectly!

And personally, I do think that if you are commenting on a blog and making a relevant point on the blog, then adding a relevant link to your own article can be a really useful thing to do. 

For instance, as a sewing blogger, if I found a craft blog with CommentLuv who had posted an article about zero waste sewing, I could perhaps choose to link one of my own recent articles about zero waste sewing with my comment. As well as making a pertinent point, I would also be adding relevant content to their blog, and may even drive traffic and new subscribers to my own blog!

In this way, I do think that the plugin even with a no-follow link is still very relevant. And commenting on blogs within your niche is still very good for your rankings.

And – you don’t need to have the CommentLuv plugin yourself to comment on a blog which has the CommentLuv plugin.


But This Is Important To Note


I  have the Akismet Plugin on my blog to prevent spam. I vet ALL my comments before publishing. To keep my blog comments free of rogue links and rubbish. Only helpful useful comments need apply.

In asking other bloggers, a lot have commented that they don’t want spamming while using the plugin. Actually, by moderating all my comments and using an anti spam plugin I think this bypasses that issue. I get very little spam, and the spam I do get is easily trashed. It is usually very easy to spot a spam comment and trash it.

So even if you are inviting comments by having CommentLuv, you are fully in charge of which ones you publish.

Do also bear this in mind when commenting on any blog. It just is rude to try to place a comment to try to rank, but I am seeing it so often.

It is actually best practice only to comment on your own niche and stay in your own expertise.

Trying to get backlinks from blogs out of your niche may actually harm your SEO. The way I understand it, Google gets confused, wondering what your site is about when crawling your backlinks.

My list, therefore, has also listed the niche of the blog concerned as a helpful aide.


My suggested rules for commenting (whatever the blog):


  1. Keep it relevant to the blog article you are commenting on. (P.S. It is obvious if you haven’t!)
  2. Write something useful in response. Ask a relevant question, or give another helpful tip.
  3. Write more than ‘great post’. In fact write more than a few words. But posting 200 words is probably going too far.
  4. My own personal jury is out with the adding of a link in the comment box. I have had people comment this way on my blog. Personally I think it’s a bit spammy. Do let me know what you think.

Over the last 18 months I have joined a lot of link parties and found a lot of these blogs containing CommentLuv whilst building my links with fellow bloggers. I do see blogging as a community. Building relationships with other bloggers is so important. Please do not spam these people, but use this list to find some of the blogs that I have come to respect.

    Thanks for curating this very handy list. Sometimes the CommentLuv link doesn’t connect to my latest post when I comment, but sometimes it does and I’m not sure what makes the difference! I do need to get back to commenting more though as my DA took a huge hit last March with the Moz update and has never recovered. 🙁 I agree that link dropping is a bit spammy.

    1. Jo Boyne says:

      I like the CommentLuv plug in because art looks a bit classier than just a link drop. Glad to know that I’m not alone in disliking others to just try to drop links in my blog.

  2. Kim Carberry says:

    I had never even thought about CommentLuv improving rankings. I did not know that was a thing. How cool. I will have a look though your list. I am always looking for new blogs to follow x

    1. Jo Boyne says:

      Thank you Kim. I love finding new blogs too. Enjoy !

  3. Anne says:

    I will check out some of the blogs you suggest. I know that I still get ranking from having links on blogs that no longer use CommentLuv. I tried it myself in the past but I removed it when it appeared to get a bad name. Maybe I should try and re-instate it? I’m quite sure that my current comment box gives ranking to links. (I get enough comments just going for ranking anyway, thank goodness for askimet!) I do think it’s unpolite to leave a link in a comment unless you are helping the blogger out by linking to a specific post that may be of interest or help to them.

  4. Joanne says:

    There are at least three blogs I comment on regularly that have Commentluv enabled… and now that I’m trying to think which ones they are I can’t remember! I know one of them is All That Life Stuff.

  5. Jean | Delightful Repast says:

    Jo, thank you for the list AND for reminding readers to use it “responsibly.” I don’t seek out any particular type of blogs to improve my ranking, but I love to discover new-to-me blogs from lists and linkups. I don’t have CommentLuv myself, but like you, I moderate all comments. And I respond to all comments and reciprocate when bloggers comment.

    1. Jo Boyne says:

      Thank you Jean! And for messaging about the comment redirect issue. Will look into that.

  6. Jean | Delightful Repast says:

    PS (and you can delete this comment, if you like) I noticed when I clicked on your name on your comment on my post it took me to your Blogger profile, and your Blogger profile did not include a link to your blog. Fortunately, I happened to know your URL and so found you, but my readers may not. Thought you’d want to know.

  7. Lorna @ Gin & Lemonade says:

    Hi Jo, Thanks for this list. I’m looking for ways to break out of my blogging bubble. I don’t use Commentluv, but do notice when I leave a link through it on someone else’s blog, I do get more genuine engagement from others who click through. And I don’t always leave my most recent post, but something relevant to the conversation, if more than one post is available from the drop-down menu.

    As for leaving links, a commenters name is hyperlinked to their blog, so if someone leaves a link to their homepage within the comment, I delete the link and let them know it’s already there and their name is clickable!

    1. Jo Boyne says:

      Thank you for reading Lorna. Totally agree about adding a relevant post to the conversation. That’s a great tip!

  8. Nicola @ Mum on a Budget says:

    Thanks for compiling this list – and for including my blog on it. It must have been a lot of work. I am always on the lookout for more blogs to browse, so this is a great place to start.

    1. Jo Boyne says:

      Thank you Nicola. Hope it brings you some fresh readers!

    2. Kathryn Burrington says:

      Thanks for the list. I’ve just added Comment Luv to my new site. If it goes well I’ll add it to my established site as well. I’ve allowed users to register so that they get the choice of blog posts to link to and I’ve made those links do-follow. Do you have a problem with fake users registering? I’ve had a few people register, but none of them has left any comments! Thanks

      1. Jo Boyne says:

        If they do not comment I do not think they will get a backlink, so I wouldn’t worry. But I would install Akismet or other spam catcher plugin on your site to get approval on every comment. This normally sorts out the spam for me.

  9. April says:

    This is a great list Jo! I recently discovered commentLuv while reading a blog of a friend. I instantly thought to myself, “Whatever that is, I want it.” Regardless if it’s becoming outdated or not, I love it and will continue to use it. I do agree with you as far as using it responsibly. Sometimes, as new bloggers, it’s easy to get excited for new traffic but lose sight of politeness. I am going to check out some of the blogs on the list! I saw some craft blogs that I didn’t recognize 🙂

    1. Jo Boyne says:

      Hi Leia. Yes, there are lots of craft bloggers on there. A great way to meet new crafters is to find ‘linkies’ too, where you can read other craft blogs and find lots of great ideas. Thank you for reading and for your comment.

  10. Mc karma says:

    Great articIe. had never even thought about CommentLuv improving rankings. I did not know that was a thing. How cool. I will have a look though your list.

  11. Steve L says:

    So glad I stumbled upon this. Have seen so many other similar lists that are all well outdated but these links seem to work well. Have pinned it too so I can keep coming back, thank you!

  12. Egypt@artisanoffreedom says:

    Thank you for curating this awesome list. CommenLuv and Blog rocks!!. I’ve recently started a simple
    living and writing blog. It’s useful articles like this, that make my day. Keep up the great work. I love your site!

  13. Anca says:

    Thank you for including my blogs. xx I will have a look at the other blogs in my niche(s) and leave a comment, of course. 🙂

  14. Martin @ Madagascar tours says:

    Thanks for the article and taking time to give list of blogs with CommentLuv plugin with their DA. This is one recent list that I have come across and hope it will be of help to many. Thanks once again

  15. Wendy says:

    Thank you for the wonderful post. And also categorizing them in their own niche. It’s really helpful.

    1. Jo Boyne says:

      Thank you. Yes, I just wanted to create a full and comprehensive list with niche sections.

  16. Caz / InvisiblyMe says:

    Wow, what an awesome resource! I just came across your blog from a general Google search, so that tells you how highly you’re ranking. I hadn’t given all that much thought about SEO and backlinks until more recently. I had DA 35, then Moz went down (last year I think this was) and when it came back up it dropped to 28. I’ve been stuck ever since. Even growing the do-follow backlinks when people have asked me to write an article for them hasn’t made a difference.

    I never fully understood Comment Luv and whether it not it counted as a link until I saw a post discussing it last week. Very helpful signposting and it’s great being able to check out lots of new blogs and fresh content that I hadn’t come across before either. Thanks for sharing these

    1. Jo Boyne says:

      Thank you Caz. Like I have said, this post has been a long time curating, and I update it regularly, which may be why it ranks well. And it may be a helpful backlink opportunity, but even if not, at least you hopefully have found some great blogs in your niche to check out! Thank you for commenting!

  17. AlexaJade says:

    Hey, This is such a helpful post! finding actual commentluv blogs can be quite hard at times!
    Thanks for sharing

  18. Claire St says:

    Thank you for sharing this list, it’s super useful and clearly a lot of time and effort has gone into creating this. I totally agree with your rules. We have to respect one another and take an active interest in the community for this to work correctly.

  19. scrappytailscrafts says:

    Thank you for this rundown. I have tracked down something similar with different records being obsolete. It is extraordinary to have a current rundown

  20. Olivia Rose says:

    Hi Jo Boyne!
    Thanks for curating this super Informative list. It’s a great help in blogging especially for the new bloggers.
    keep up the good work!

  21. Zena's Suitcase says:

    This is such a helpful list. Thanks so much for doing this research and sharing these links. I’ll definitely be coming back to this post
