    Hello,

    When replying to a blog, usually the website you type in shows up as the "Name" on your response. Does it make a difference if you type in a name like joe, john, mary, etc.?

    Or, should I type in the main keyword my site is targeting like blue hand bags, free viagra, blue stilettos, etc.?

    Using keywords in the name will set off most mods spam alarms.

    Ah Ok. So using a simple name such as John will still have the same backlinking results?

    Using a simple name, will not provide you backlinks with your wanted keywords, however it will largely improve The acceptance rate of your comments.
    you should use both methods, a simp;le name for highly moderated blogs, and a keyword for less moderated.

    Something I like to do is work a key into the name, as in a nick.

    So if you're trying to rank for blue stilettos, you might post with names like:

    Blue Sammy
    Sammy Blues
    Stiletto Chick
    Girl in Stilettos
    etc

    Its not as clean as a plain name, but gets some keys in there when they stick.

    Thanks, how can I figure out what blogs are more moderated than others?
    If a blog moderator doesn't really participate in the comments section, would it be safe to say they don't moderate that much?

    Thanks for this tip! I would have never thought about this myself. :p

    Haha, I had been doing this for a long time. Looks like I will see this more often now.

    No, you kind sometimes tell by the quality of previous comments whether a post is moderated or just post first and see if it shows up right away. Good luck.
