    Hi friends,

    I have a question, is the blog comment links quality (contextual links in the comment body) same as the links in the article body contextual links?

    Let's say the TF & CF of the comment page = the TF & CF of the article page

    Are the links quality same powerful? :)

    And if the comment page with thousands of outbound links to the sites such as games, sex sites, if I comment in it (my site is sports niche), will it hurt my site?

    Most comment links are nofollow nowadays. So, they do not hold much power anymore. However, a limited number of manual comments is not that bad.

    If you look at TF/CF from the old Pagerank perspective, then the TF/CF would be divided as there would be many comments on that page. Leave TF CF for the time being as that does not matter much in real perspective. In short, the link juice is divided (and significantly reduced to nearly negligible margins in case of nofollow) as there are several comments on a high authority page. If you can find a high quality, others can find it too. ;)

    Having said that, you can go for a limited number of manual comment links in order to build your social outreach and for the same of diversity. A comment in a very popular page (which it probably would be if it has very high TF CF) would probably bring in some traffic too. But don't waste too much time on it unless you want to go full white hat.

    Yes, it might hurt your site in some cases or at least not be effective at all. Try your best to avoid spammed sites be it blogs, forums or anything else.

    Blog comments do not have as much power as they used to have in past, however they are still useful to diversify anchor text and backlinks portfolio. Of course I am talking about high quality manual blog comments or websites relevant to your niche.

    Blog comments do not hold much weight like they used to before. If you, however, managed to have links from authoritative sites on your niche they can still be deemed as useful.

    While blog comments don't hold much "weight" anymore, it's still a good way to drive traffic to your website's.
