In his recent video, Matt Cutts has offered tips on how to ensure that your blog comments are not considered spam by Google.
Cutts said that most of the times, leaving links to your website or commenting is not a direct spam but it can be abused. The tips offered by Cutts to escape the situation are:
- Using real name while commenting. When you leave a company name or use anchor text you want to rank for, it appears to Google that your purpose of leaving a comment is commercial marketing & this may look spammy
- If Google finds out that majority of the links to your website come from blog comments, it will assume that your primary strategy is link building & might raise a red flag.
