    If I have made loads of real blog comments on niche relevant domains using my name as the anchor text could this mess up my anchor text ratios?

    I mean are they counted if they are all no-follow and real comments, Obviously my names not going to change so I was just wondering if I could be penalized for this. Obviously I am not trying to rank for my name so would Google recognize this?

    A link is a link, and it shouldn't hurt, but all blog comments in your links isn't good.

    Thats more natural than having "Pay Day Loan" as your name.

    Just make sure blog comments are not your only link building strategy

    Yeh I tend to generally start off by doing a few niche relevant blog comments in my niche to give my new websites their first back-links but then I move on from blog commenting.

    If they're nofollow it doesn't really matter. You have to build tens of thousands of nofollow links using software before you can get in trouble, and that's only if it's a new site with no authority.
