    First of all I have to say, I tried to block Majestic SEO via .httpaccess, somehow it seem to know my back links. Anyway I wanted to check my BLs and found out there are 180 BLs which I know nothing about. MS displays 4 referring domain with 4 referring IPs. How on earth can I find this 180 backlinks?


    The 4 domain I know, as I created them manually. Can 1 domain crate more than 170 BL just by submitting to 1 post comments?

    Also on M-SEO I can see only those 4 domains which I have commented or dropped my link in there.

    One of them is a directory.


    Is this something I need to look in to? And within webmaster tool, I can see only 2 domains and only 3 BLs (which are the ones I used for submitting the links)


    BTW, my website is ecommerce and not a blog or any sort.


    Any advice on this please.

    Thanks in advance

    Yes the one comment that you made can appear at numerous places on a website hence blessing you with so many links. Generally a post is displayed under various sections like tag pages, category pages etc on CMSes like wordpress creating multiple versions of same content.

    Another possibility can be that after your comment link was crawler by majestic or any other crawler, it rolled of to another pages and got crawled again. That way practically you have just one linking rolling off to several pages but seen as several links by crawlers.

    Thank you very much for the input, at least now I can sleep without thinking I have done something wrong. This is my very first approach to run my very own business and also new to the SEO world. I have to say one thing though.


    Reading about SEO is one thing, getting your hands on it and trying it out is another, it’s not easy as people think it is. It requires lots of reading/research and trial & errors.

    I guess once you are through that, then it became a temp plate



    Once again, thank you very much sir

    Robots.txt doesn't actually block robots from crawling your site. It's just a suggestion. o_O

    Reading, learning and doing SEO go hand in hand once you understand the basics. You are never too educated when it comes to SEO or any other trait for that matter.
    The most difficult step is to start.

    Try removing those sitewide links, they can hurt your rankings in SERPs.

    If you're trying to block via .htaccess use the condition "RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^ [insert bot]"

    I made 3 blog comments to one of my sites and two weeks later it was showing over 1000 backlinks. They were all from "recent comments" widgets on every page.

    this is what i was worried about, if I knew how to just do that, the comment I made cannot be edited :(

    thanks for that, I will cross check this with my file, I am not sure whether the above line is within the .htaccess

    I think this is what happened :(


    thanks guys for the heads up. I could always block this via disallowed on web master tool!!

    If you're worried about it, you can also write some fake comments on the same sites to push yours down off the recent comments widget. Blog comments are pretty normal so I wouldn't think it would be a problem, i didnt see any negative effects on my site with the 1000+ comment links. But Im not that experienced so idk for sure
