Hi Bober - "counteract" ? how do you mean?
If you're commenting for PageRank - that's spam.
We'll it's bit of both 'genuine interest & to get a backlink with anchor text'
*maybe i should slightly re-phrase 'if i comment on a blog post that has 'no follow' using 'SEO Dublin' as my anchor text/name will this still benefit my PR for SEO Dublin'?
Right so, fair enough point if that's your view - I think it comes down to one's moral ethics. (Personally I don't see any issue with me leaving a genuine post on someones blog using SEO Dublin as my Name, I submitted an honest un-automated information/feedback on a topic of my interest) On an off topic, similarly I don't see any issue with reading someone's source code - which I know you don't agree with! As for the SEO aspect I'm just trying to figure out certain aspects as a means of trying & testing certain elements.
As mentioned above I do take note of your advise & for that I do appreciate. I think you have you have to put into consideration here the difference between me & you in terms of SEO is over 10 years. & about 1000 posts, bet ye anything when I get to over 1000 posts I won't be asking questions!
That's not a fair comment at all, so there are parts of seo that I don't know - here's one, when I firstly started out I barely new what Title Tags were & if I didn't ask questions & answer questions I wouldn't have learned. I give myself credit for learning every day, I'm attentive, driven & motivated - I put about 15hours a day into learning online marketing. I consider myself to be very well rounded when it comes to Online Marketing, I can provide a great Social Marketing Service, OnPage SEO & now I'm learing/up-skilling about Off-Page - Meanwhile I work Full-time & Self-study Every Saturday to be Google Certified.
Based on the above it gives you absolute NO RIGHT to say I give SEO a Terrible name!
I have every right. I have to pick up the pieces on SEO projects when people ride in and go "I don't know everything [or anything] but I can do it" and 12 months later the client is in a mess.
BTW - I didn't learn via asking questions and I never charged anyone until I was on page 1 for "SEO"
Glen - I'm happy to help you learn but you're not an SEO by a long shot yet. Not even by the most optimistic account.
The only reason I'm saying this: You're trying to rank for SEO dublin as if you expect to rank for SEO Dublin. And that is where there is a chasm of ability -v- desirability.
Why do you think it's "ok"?If you comment a post, that is related to your company, business or website, I think, it's absolutely ok to comment with your website's name.
But if the post is about something completely different, commenting as a keyword could be considered as spam.
