    I don't see the point in it TBH it doesn't compete with web 2.0s, Article sites, PDF sites, many people say it gives diversity but IMO it doesn't look natural.

    For instance who hell is called "cheap slimming pills" ?

    They're good links for diversity. The anchor text does not necessarily need to be the keywords you're targetting so you don't have to sign as "buy viagra".

    Correctly done commenting still works, but mainly for link diversification. You can always comment your pseudonym instead of using your main keyword. That way your anchors won't look too spammy.

    Blog comments are pretty powerful

    But factors which make them work are these:

    Low OBL

    Niche Related

    Authority source

    yes it works but if done correctly , avoid spammy websites / blogs at all costs and only put your comment on High quality relevant pages with low OBL and also make sure you diversify your anchor text !!
    i think that you should be fine this way

    Links are links - treat them as such. Every type of link has its use somewhere...

    Blog commenting has been debated for YEARS through every Google update. I imagine it's only valuable now for tiered link building even though that isn't very effective anymore itself.

    As long as search engines exist SEO won't be "dead". It's just dramatically different now.

    I stopped building manual blog comment backlinks 2 years ago because of how tedious it was and the results I was getting didn't justify the amount of effort I was putting in. I still use blog comments, but I use those created in volumes by tools like scrapebox and they serve as tier 3 links only.

    Make sure you post them on quality sites and you should be fine.

    Well, based on my observation, blog commenting still works. However, mere "blog commenting" doesn't. It should be done properly and keep in mind that comments must be of high quality, as well - ones that are related to your niche, of course. Never resort to comments that will appear spammy or something similar to that.
