When you leave a comment at any WordPress blog by filling in your name and website URL in the respective fields, your name appears as a link to your blog/website on submission. By default, these links have rel=”nofollow” attribute attached to them. This attribute directs the search engine spiders / crawlers not to follow the linked website or blog. The link may get indexed but it is not followed (or counted as a backlink) from the blog that links.

However, some blogs reward their commentators by removing the rel=”nofollow” attribute from their templates which gives them free backlinks! Such blogs are called DoFollow Blogs or No-NoFollow Blogs. BTW, Inspirit is also a doFollow blog so drop in maximum comments to get some free links from this PR 4 blog 🙂 …

WordPress Plugin : KeywordLuv

As I told you, when you comment at a WordPress blog your name becomes the anchor text in the link that points to your blog or specific blog post, as per what you submitted in the URL field. KeywordLuv plugin has been developed (by Stephen Cronin) to reward your commentators by separating their names from their keywords in the link to their website, giving them improved anchor text.

So, if you’re commenting at a doFollow blog then you can use targeted keywords as anchor text to point the links to your blog or blog post, instead of using your name. KeywordLuv plugin requires a the blog to be doFollow in order to work, because linking using your keywords would be of no use unless these links are followed by search engines (Google esp.) !


Using KeywordLuv is quite easy. If I enter Abhinav @ Free Blog Reviews in the name field instead of just Abhinav in the comment form, then the title of a comment would look like :

Abhinav from Free Blog Reviews says :

instead of :

Abhinav says :

The symbol @ does the magic here. If this symbol is not used between Name and Keywords, they’ll appear as they would normally on a WordPress blog with this plugin not installed.

The usage tip generally gets added to your comment form automatically and you can customize this message that appears from the plugin options page on your admin dashboard.

Download Plugin

You can download KeywordLuv Plugin from this plugin page. The plugin author has also nicely explained why anchor text is so important.

If you are running a link building campaign to get better ranks in the SERPS and improving your Technorati Authority, then consider commenting at blogs no-follow free blogs with either or both CommentLuv and KeywordLuv plugins enabled as an easy way to get free backlinks.

P.S. : As I mentioned above, this plugin needs a doFollow plugin to be installed on your blog to function properly. Read How to Remove rel=”noFollow” from your blog and join the doFollow movement to learn more about NoFollow, DoFollow and how to remove the noFollow attribute from your blog.

Feel free to drop in your comments using the form below. Inspirit uses the KeywordLuv plugin besides being a doFollow blog and using CommentLuv, so take full advantage of it.

  5. Yes,i am totally agree with this about keywordluv.I really appreciate this blog for such a nice post about blogging with keywordluv and have backlinks.

  6. This is a great idea and when someone posts on my blog, I would rather give them anchor text than just a link with their name on it. I can’t understand why other blog owners care ~ a link is a link. I already have the dofollow installed, so I will now take your advice and get the keywordluv. I always see commentluv associated with the keywordluv which I am not sure I want to do yet.

  7. ok thanks for information but in which Keywordluv and commentluv are two plugins which makes me to stick with wordpress especially for moderating blog.

  8. I am really not happy with google. I rank #1 for live and yahoo but google is pushing me behind. Wonder what went wrong. How else can I do SEO?

  9. This is a good plugin. I found it 2 weeks ago when I was commenting one blog . This is a good way to help your readers , at least with a backlink . With the problem with this plugin is that many spammers will add useless comments !

  10. Awesome Post. Link provided in the article is highly useful, Thank you so much for sharing it with all.
    * thanks for the tip, always enjoy your post. You’re one of a very few that actually give out good

  11. This is a nice plugin,everybody should use it to give a reward for the readers,at least this you can make for them . Everyone has something to win from this plugin !

  12. I am so back and forth on this issue, I keep coming back to the spam thing, and will it add posts of value, I am inclined to move towards keywordluv if i can ever make my mind up

  13. In general, the small sensors and optics in all ultra-compact digital cameras lead to some optical quirks (such as barrelling), chromatic aberrations, over/under-exposure in bright sunlight/shade, and underpowered flashes. That’s intrinsic to the size of camera, and vendors try to correct these effects in their on-board processing. My opinion is that Canon does a good job of correcting for these issues and the Elphs including the SD1200 take very good photos for their size.

  14. I read blogs for such a long time and have never heard about KeywordLuv. I think I’ll install it on my blog also, it really encourages other bloggers to comment on your page.

  15. Hi just figured i will let you know that i had a problem with your blog coming up frozen also. Must be gremlins in the page.

  16. Love your site! KeywordLuv is a great tool as long as people do not abuse it. I have it on my sites as well and love using it. Good luck!

  17. Search engines often use the number of back links that a website has as one of the factors for determining that website’s search engine ranking. Most commercial search engines provide a mechanism to determine the number of back links they have recorded to a particular web page.

  18. keywordluv is great I always search for keyword luv sites and make a nice post on there. It’s one of my favourite plugins.

  19. Maybe I should use this plugin on my page. I don’t get too many comments about classic cars. Thanks for the good advice:)

  20. The person who makes a success of living is the one who see his goal steadily and aims for it unswervingly. That is dedication.

  21. One thing I noticed about blogs with Keywordluv and dofollow is that it doesn’t really encourage discussion as it should…to most linkbuilders it becomes the same thing as when the blog didn’t have KL and was dofollow. And this is the sort of thing that forces some bloggers to shut down these plugins on their sites. It would be really great if you leave a good comment, and if someone replies to yours and starts a conversation, to actually reply back to them if they had a question or a clarification. This way, it’s a win-win situation–discussions are stimulated, blogs get traffic, everyone gets an exercise in writing and we all get more links.

  22. thanks for the puling advice.. very much appreciated.

  23. Very nice information. Thanks for this. You really have a very informative site, thank you for sharing!

  24. Honestly, in the short-term, there is little that any of these so-called leaders of GM can say that is credible.

  25. Thanks for this helpful information. KeywordLuv is indeed a great help because I heard feedback from a great friend of mine that eversince she used KeywordLuv, increased traffic and comments happened and she’s very thankful to that. But based on observations, sometimes KL doesn’t promote conversations and discussion per se. Just my two cents worth.

  26. keywordluv and do follow plugin is very good for new blog but for medium up traffic blog it will hard to keep the comment spam free…

  27. When searching for a blog such as this it is only nice to talk about what the site is about. Reading the posts here I have learned how to better market the Lake Tahoe Vacation Rentals site I work for. Thank you all for the info here.

  28. Wow I wish I had thought of this. Thanks for the post, I definitely like!!!! 🙂
