JustinGermino.Com is now a DoFollow Blog

In an effort to reward people who comment on all of my blogs, I have converted this blog to become a DoFollow, KeyWordLuv, CommentLuv, and Top Commentator blog. You can read my primary Dragon Blogger article titled Dragon Blogger is now a DoFollow Blog to learn more about these plug-ins and links to download them.
In summary, now everyone who leaves a comment will get a legitimate link back to their site or blog, as well as the top commenters for the month will be listed in my sidebar widget with a linkback to their site as well.

In reading and consulting with several other bloggers it is my opinion that it is better to be a dofollow blog in the long run, than being a nofollow blog even though your Google PageRank may suffer a little, it is better to foster communication with readers.

    I’ve been thinking about installing these dofollow plugins out there (like KeywordLuv) but am a bit worried about its effects…. do you think it’ll hurt me in terms of SEO? I mean since you’re linking out a lot..

      They always have a risk of running SEO and PageRank spill, but you get some more visits and commenters. However, You can choose you you link out to.

    I was into your main blog Dragon Blogger and read that you are a DoFollow Blog. This is really nice of you to have done even if PR might suffer in the end.

    Learning so much from your blogs.

      DoFollow can hurt the PR of individual posts on a blog, but not the PR of the blog itself since comments aren’t on the homepage.

    This is a really great idea. I reading your blogs are win-win. Most the stuff you write about i can connect with and take interest in. And you are DoFollow. I haven’t commented on every blog i’ve read of yours but now i will if you’re going to have a top spot for the winners. Haha.

    I think it is a great idea to be a DoDollow blog; it encourages comments and provides a small reward (backlink) to the commenter. Any loss to SEO is minor and more than made up by devoted readers. Thanks, Justin–you are an inspiration to all of us!

      It helps encourage comments and even though more backlink scrapers come to sites that are DoFollow at least they are finding the articles and engaging.
