    Do high PR blog comments still help improve SERP movement? I threw 100 high PR comments to my site that already have a strong back link profile and saw minimal movement. What about everyone else?

    No that's just spam. Public PR hasn't been updated in 2 years. You have no idea what PR any site has.

    Nowadays, I wouldn't be "throwing" anything at your site if you want long term results. 5 manual, relevant, well written blog comments will help, yes. Adding 100 shitty automated blog comments with spun garbage text will hurt you instead of helping you. Everything you do needs to look natural or it's not a good idea. Quality over quantity.

    PRs are no longer that relevant. However, I still believe that the quality of your content will always be among the factors that will determine the traffic you'll drive into your page.

    PR is no more. DA/PA and TF/CF - and a good link profile is what you need to look for. And the comments must be do-follow (and not embedded in javascript or something).

    Comments dont help increase your rankings. They are just good to diversify your link profile.

    They are still effective if you found the pages that aren't spammed yet and also check their PA if its 20+ then proceed to apply your link there.

    Comment on a page not triggered SPAM by Google can help you increase your SERPs. To ensure that page is not considered you need to check "what was the last time Google crawled and re-cached its page with recent comments" ... You can do so by checking the cache of the page!

    Another factor is the amount of relevant OBL found on a page.

    I'd say ignore all that PR, PA, DA stuff.

    Look for highly relevant blogs. The purpose of a great comment is to get people to click. Commenting is about reputation and traffic.
