Anyone still ranking their sites only with blog comments or these days are long gone?
Not for ranking purposes.
comments for tier 2 works fine
yes i am doing dear...
I' not sure if they are improving my ranking but I've been writing detailed useful comments and they provide me traffic - which is all that really matters. No **** do*****. I don't really care as long as it is a quality blog with low OBL. I have no problems getting comments to stick like this - blogs, reddit, any other communities. I really wish I could outsource but this would require a lot of niche related knowledge to be done correctly.
Plus 1 for what silverback says. Especially important is not to worry about follow state, both no and do follow work well for low and medium competition keywords, it sometimes takes a little more trickery if it's more competitive.
I think they are great for mixing up engines your links are coming from. Just don't over-do them IMO.
I don't use blog comments for ranking sites but I still use them for tier 2, tier 3, indexing purposes if they are auto approve.
If they are comments from moderated and niche targeted blogs I use them directly to my money site.
I forgot to add that I also use blogs for anchor text diversification - I use raw urls to save my key word anchor text for high quality high PR links. Medium PRs I generally use generic "click here"s. Looks fairly natural that way too. Someone posting on a blog comment or forum is going to grab a cut n paste (cause it is easier and people tend to be lazy) whereas someone writing a genuine article is going to take the time to put in a proper hyperlink. Of course I'm a beginner (that has read ALOT - 3 years of back post on BHW alone plus countless blogs, etc) so take my words with a grain of salt.
My "spamless spam" philosophy has been working; I have a good number of Wikipedia links to my main money site because I add value to the article as I'm dropping in a link. That's another No **** link that drives traffic AND affects ranking.
yea, blog comments work like charm if done good...
