One way to link build without investing too much cash is participating in online communities and blogs.  Put plainly, comment on blogs that are relevant to your product, industry, or business. And remember to add a link in the comment back to your blog, or a specific page/article on your website.

Sounds simple right?

It is.

But there are some guidelines. 

Commenting Black Hat vs. White Hat

Commenting on blogs has been verified by Google’s Matt Cutts as a good way to acquire links for your link building strategy. However he does warn, there are ways to abuse this style of link building and land your site on Google’s naughty list.  Below I have listed a few simple guidelines to keep you within the Google guidelines of link building by commenting on blogs.

1. Comment on blogs that are related to your industry, product, or business. Commenting on sites and adding links to non-relevant pages is a sign you are a dirty link builder and Google will flag your comments and site as spammy.

2. Comment using your actual name. Not the name of your guide, offer, or business. In fact, commenting with names that are filled with keyword rich words is a huge red flag that your are commenting for the sole purpose of getting a link. Google will not like that. Using your real name will also increase your chances of your link being approved.

3. Don't go overboard. If your primary link building strategy is to leave comments all over the web, to the degree that you have a huge fraction of your link portfolio in comments and no real people linking to you, then at some point that can be considered a link scheme.

"At a very high level we reserve the right to take action on any sort of deceptive or manipulative link schemes that we consider to be distorting your rankings."

– Matt Cutt’s, Google’s Web Spam Department Head
