What is the most effective way to do leave your link in a blog for SEO? I never used the provided link url, as I assumed that my comment won't get approved if I had a link filled out in the form and then also had a link in my comment. I have been providing my link in my comments which brings in a lot of traffic to my websites, but is it effective to do that or should I simply use the link url field? I just recently started to ping my comments and I have seen the impact it has had on my SERP. What are everyone elses experiences?
