Moderated dofollow blogs have several extra benefits compared to unmoderated dofollow blogs. Only moderated dofollow blogs will help our ranking in google search ranking or page rank. Google hates not moderated blogs and will not give credit towards links in these type of pages. So, don’t waste your time and money on unmoderated dofollow blogs. Start concentrating on dofollow blogs that well moderated.
1. Not Spammed
The main reason why not moderated dofollow blogs have low value of back link because of spam. It may not help or might lead to some penalty, getting a back link from not moderated dofollow blogs. Moderated dofollow blogs might have low approval rate, but once your comment is approved, you don’t have to worry about spam on that particular page. You know exactly, how hard it is to get a comment approved on moderated dofollow blogs. Plus, you won’t compete to get page rank juice from hundreds of links per page. Well moderated posts often have less than 100 comments, unless the blog is extremely famous.
2. Genuine Contents
Most not moderated blogs will have tons of unrelated comments. It may link to some high risk sites related to gambling, pharma, adult related sites. It is not healthy to have our link surrounded by this type of links. Content generated by spam comments might not suitable for our niche as well. Moderated blogs will not have this problem as all comments will be filtered. Only genuine comments will get approved.
3. Higher Authority
Blog without spam comments and well maintained most likely gain higher authority as time goes. Getting a link from moderated blogs will give you higher authority back link. The quality of dofollow blog that is moderated is always on higher side in search engine’s view. Thus, getting a dofollow back link from moderated dofollow blogs will lead to good ranking.
4. Increase Google Ranking
Dofollow links will increase google ranking, both page rank and search engine ranking. Getting comments from heavily spammed dofollow blog post will not help us or might lead to penalty. But, getting a link from well moderated dofollow blogs will certainly give a boost in our page rank and google SERP ranking. If our anchor keyword used in comment is relevant to blogpost that we comment, it will give better benefit towards google search ranking.
Even, if you able to get .gov or .edu backlinks, check again whether the post is moderated. Buying commenting service from gov or edu TLD will not help your ranking if the post is not moderated. The seller or the buyer is the potential spammers. Personally, I have never seen a single post with good page rank on not moderated blog post “unspammed”. If you are targeting dofollow blog commenting service, make sure all your comments are coming from moderated blogs.
