    quick question, when posting a comment on a blog and you have a box like this:

    blogcomment.png

    if i was to just post a normal comment but leave my sites url in the box would this count as a backlink even if the url isn't visible on the comment?

    The URL has to be visible on the page to be counted as a backlink. After your comment is approved, try this:

    1) load page where comment was approved
    2) do CTRL+U
    3) then, do CTRL+F and type your url in the search box. if the URL is not found in the search it means you don't have a backlink on that page.

    hope this helped
