    You know how there are blogs which allow you to post comments with the following details

    1. Name
    2. Email
    3. Website
    If I key in my website's URL into the website field and if the post is approved, my Name becomes a link to my website.

    Will this bring me any backlink juice?

    Hope I didn't confuse you.

    Not Really.
    Link Juice is when the Blog page (website page) doesn't have the tag "nofollow." It not related to the keyword in your "anchor text."

    Also the "Juice" will depend on the number of "outgoing" links on the page. If the page is linking to 20,30,40 websites, the PR of the page will be divided by the number of links. Consequently, there will be REALLY little juice going to your website.

    The value of your "anchor text" is based on Search Engines' algorithms. Which is not related directly to the "Juice". But, It is a PLUS though to have the Keyword there...somewhere.:)

    Thanks Rhazha,

    But by leaving a link to my website there, regardless of if they are from my name or from a link in the comment (using the <a> tag), it will do my website good correct?

    I just wanted to know if there is a difference leaving a link on the comment post itself or if the link is coming from my name. Or if the link from the name does nothing good to my website.

    I don't think it makes any difference where the link is. In my experience if "website" filed is nofollow, than so is any link placed in your message. If they are both ****************, then you have a much higher chance to get your comment deleted if you use a link to your website in your message, unless you direct to it as a source for some useful information, almost any webmaster with half brains will delete it.

    I think it should help because most high PR blogs are heavily moderated. If your comment is approved, search engines should see it as a positive vote for your domain. Search engines might take into account the nofollow tag but i think comment should give a +vote when it's approved. Keep in mind that links from within the relevant article text are worth more compared to links from comments. Spend your money on getting links from within articles first.

    There are plenty of do follow lists if you search for them. Although check them, some may be on the list, but I've found that tools like No**************** and SEO for Firefox show that some of them are no follow.

    Either way, I take what I can get. For me the key is writing applicable comments that will actually add value to the site. I know those are the only types of comments I approve on my blogs.
