    Thomsanmatt,

    I wouldn't say they are "new" or the best thing for SEO. Interacting with blogs can help SEO and having links in a comment whether they are do-follow or no-follow can be beneficial for their various reasons. The impact they have on a site's ranking would depend on the blog they were left on, how that blog is configured, and the authority of that site.

    Maybe you can find more answers in this thread,

    Did you make this thread a few years ago and it's just getting posted now? ;)

    Blog commenting is like the old man of back link methods. Still works, ******** and all that, not to the same degree.

    The usefulness of a blog comment, or any form of backlink for that matter, is based on the personal experience of the individual providing you the information. I happen to find them very powerful. Others think they're not very useful anymore, and so build social links. I'm not saying I think they're the best - because no single backlinking method is, but like all forms of backlinks: They're good. They're worth it. You should never miss an opportunity to leave your link on a blog post.

    In summary: Yes they're useful. How useful? You'll have to see for yourself, as any person's comment is purely subjective.

    Google probably holds little to no value in blog comment links for SEO purposes these days. If you are adding valuable insight, there's a chance you will drive traffic to your site.

    Blog commenting is a popular online marketing strategy. By leaving thoughtful comments on a blog post, an individual or a business is able to gain exposure among that blog?s audience. Blog comments can establish an individual or a business as a thought leader in a particular industry which may lead to new business opportunities.

    Blog commenting is also a link building tactic, since the comment links back to the page that was submitted in the ?Website? field. Blog commenting should not be done only for link building, but it is an added benefit. To get the most out of blog commenting, it?s important to spend time researching high quality blogs in your niche and visit them on a regular basis.
