U Comment I Follow: The “No to rel='nofollow'” Campaign

Having a great number of backlinks to your blog/site is a very essential element in gaining a reasonable PageRank. Backlinks are incoming links from other webpages that point to your blog/website. Increasing your backlinks can be done through several ways. One of these is through posting comments to others' blog posts. However, doing this doesn’t completely assure you to be getting backlinks.

A comment carrying a link to your site/blog may become an instant backlink only and only if that webpage does not contain the HTML attribute value rel='nofollow'. rel='nofollow' is actually a search engine spam reduction tool. But in 2005, it was implemented by Google so that webmasters and bloggers can make links that will not be considered for the purposes of PageRank.

Though this value was applied for good reasons, it has somehow discouraged those who want to establish PageRank reputation through posting relevant comments. It has also disappointed a lot of people who make money online for the fact that the services they are into treat the PageRank value as a major requirement.

In order to solve this problem, some webmasters/bloggers decided to unite in erasing the rel='nofollow' attached to their sites/blogs, and subsequently, encouraging comment exchanges. Erasing the rel='nofollow' value is an unselfish act that let others create their backlinks on your blog/website. If they do the same to their blog/site, you may as well create your backlinks there.

These moves were then recommended by some to co-bloggers and co-website developers. Part of that “some” was Randa Clay (image on the left).

Through her self-titled website, Randa created a campaign in order to convince others not to act selfishly and say “no to rel='nofollow'”. Her campaign is infamously known as “U Comment I Follow”. The actions that must be taken in this campaign is the removal of the rel='nofollow' value and the attachment of a badge (sample images on the right) that she (Randa) personally created for identification. U Comment I Follow doesn’t need you to signup a form, submit your e-mail address or pay bucks. It’s free and voluntary…like nothing.

So far, Randa’s campaign has attracted numerous bloggers and webmasters whom, include me. Yup! Once you post a comment with your site’s/blog’s link on it to any of my blog posts, you’ll instantly get a backlink. But the moment you post nonsense comments here, I won’t think twice of deleting them at once.

If you think you’re not a selfish person, why not care to join the U Comment I Follow campaign? Delete that rel='nofollow' stuff now and let us exchange backlinks to gain PageRank!

Hi
I agree with the idea that you should not use nofollow tags. But why do you use it youself on the comments to this post ?

I checked the source code, and all the links within the comments for this post have nofollow tags

dog forum said...

The English word dog comes from Middle English dogge, from Old English docga, a "powerful dog breed". The term may derive from Proto-Germanic *dukkōn, represented in Old English finger-docce ("finger-muscle"). The word also shows the familiar petname diminutive -ga also seen in frogga "frog", picga "pig", stagga "stag", wicga "beetle, worm", among others. Due to the archaic structure of the word, the term dog may ultimately derive from the earliest layer of Proto-Indo-European vocabulary, reflecting the role of the dog as the earliest domesticated animal.
