My skills as a SEO (Search Engine Marketing) consultant are helpful when it comes to promoting this website. I am doing a number of things to increase the visibility of this site, increase the ranking for relevant key phrases, and drive relevant traffic to the site.
Lately, I have posted a number of articles on the issue of “Divorce and Remarriage”. I hold that the Bible clearly teaches that marriage is for life, and that to divorce and remarry is the sin of adultery. This is an important truth that is not being taught in the liberal congregations of Protestantism.
Leslie McFall has written the best explanation I have seen concerning the so-called ‘exception clause’ of Matthew 19:9. I wrote a two-page review of his technical 43-page article, and have been promoting my review article in the comments of other blog’s posts that are discussing the divorce and remarriage issue.
Here is the post that I have been making:
He has written a 43-page paper that reviews the changes in the Greek made by Erasmus which effect the way Matthew 19:9 has been translated. I reviewed McFall’s paper at Except for Fornication Clause of Matthew 19:9. I would love to hear some feedback on this position.
I have posted this above comment on about 500 or more relevant blogs. I find the relevant blogs by searching with Google Blog Search for key phrases like “divorce and remarriage”, “matthew 19:9″, and other key phrases that are relevant to the divorce and remarriage issue.
Below is a sample of a search of blogs for the key phrase “divorce and remarriage”.
I also have sent up Google Alerts for 28 different terms. I get daily emails from Google with a list of any new blog posts that have these terms in them.
Here is a screen shot of my Google Alerts I have set up.
I do not consider the comments I am leaving as comment spam, as they are very relevant and have information that the blogger and his readership will be interested in.
There are a number of things that leaving a comment in the comments of relevant blog posts will do for your site.
If you are offering relevant information by the way of a link in your comment, it will bring you traffic from other reader’s blogs.
The blog owners that watch their comments will sometimes not only read the article you link, but leave their views of your article in the comments on your blog.
I use the name of my Website for my name. So I get a link back from all the posts with the key phrase “More Christ Like” in the anchor text. Inbound links with the key phrase you are targeting is one of a number of important things you want to help you rank high in the “search engine results page” (SERPs). Currently I am ranking #1 for More Christ Like, but sometimes if you have a competitive site title, it is not easy to rank for it. This is one way that helps you not only brand your site, but also get higher rankings for your site name.
I put a link back to an article that discusses in more detail what my post in the blog comments have been. These links back to my site help me rank for the key phrase I put in the anchor text (hyper text) of the link.
For example, I added a link back to my article on Except For Fornication Clause of Matthew 19:9. Now if you Google up the term “Except For Fornication Clause of Matthew 19:19″ I rank #1 in Google. I also rank #1 for Except For Fornication Clause, #5 for Except For Fornication, and #17 for Matthew 19:9.
The rankings will vary depending on your location where you are Googling from, but given the fact that I have posted on over 500 blogs, I would expect within the next 30 days to be ranking #1 for all 5 terms.
You can do more than one comment-linking campaign. I find that you can do as many as you like. You just have to be careful you are not just creating “me too” comment spam to game the system for an inbound link. The search engines frown on this.
So, if you try this I would suggest a number of pointers:
- Make sure your comment has quality content and that it is something that the readers of the blog posts you are commenting on want to know about.
- Make the comment posts short and put a link in the comments back to an article on the same subject.
- Do not post in the comments of blog posts which are not relevant.
- Use your personal name or the name of your site. Using a key phrase you are wanting to rank for in your author name is considered kind of spammy.
Part of running a quality blog is posting in the comments of other blogs that are relevant to your blog. This way different ideas can be exchanged, and you will not only benefit yourself, but it will benefit your readership.
