We all want to improve our rankings, right? I read in this recent Neil Patel Blog that high quality comments still matter. And that there is still some value in commenting on high quality blogs. 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 over a year
  • some even have 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!

List of Comment Luv Blogs - Comment Luv is a plugin used on some blogs. By commenting on these, you may get a link back to your blog. This is a current, tried and tested link of these backlink blogs that works. I personally have tried all these. #commentluv #commentluvblogs #backlinks #blog #blogs #bloggingtips #bloggingforbeginners #blogtips #blogging #seotips #seotools #commentetiquette

 

Before I start I do want to say, a lot of people have commented to me that they thought that the CommentLuv plugin had had its day, and that it was even regarded as a security risk a few years back.

Actually, the latest update of the plugin was 2 months ago, so I cannot see why this should still be the case. If you did want to use it though, I would suggest deleting the old plugin and reinstalling the new version.

If you notice, I have the CommentLuv plugin down at the bottom of my blog comments. I put it on there as my understanding was that it it does give a little back to the person who has taken the time to provide one of my posts with a relevant and useful comment. I love that this plugin may give a little back.

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 you are inviting comments by having CommentLuv, yet 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. As by 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 done it and 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.

A Massive List of Blogs That Use CommentLuv

 

Please Use This List Responsibly

Again, this list has been a long time curating. Please do go read these great blogs, but comment using the rules above. I hope you find some great articles of interest.

I will try to keep this list updated and add to it from time to time as I find new blogs with the plug-in.

Have a blog with CommentLuv to add to the list? Have any questions or tips? Do comment or find me on social media.

And please do pin this post for later.

    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.

      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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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!

    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 🙂

      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.
