    How beneficial is Blog Commenting for SEO?

    So I have a few new niche blogs, and I am wondering if commenting on other related blogs and leaving a link back to my blog is a good use of time for helping my blog rank better.

    Are there other, better things to do? How beneficial is blog commenting and how many blogs should I comment on for it to make a difference?

    That technique definitely has its benefits but sadly it's not as effective as it used to be. If you do it, you should do it in moderation.

    Blog commenting is useful to a certain extent, but I would not count on it to deliver a lot of SEO value. In my experience blog commenting is better for getting traffic and getting known and recognized in your niche.

    I visit other websites and blogs of interest and if I have something meaningful to say, I leave a comment. Blog commenting is good in helping me establish a presence in my specialty. I get a little bit of traffic from it, which I like. But, what's better is when people visit my website, leave a comment, and then share my website with others. When that happens, traffic multiplies. I don't count on that happening, but it's nice when it does.

    Already good answers here.

    I'd add that you can grow your network and credibility with blog comments if done in moderation and on relevant places. If you want to enjoy a link love too, avoid exact anchor and use a variable or your own name (highest chances of approval) or your name@brand name

    It'd still give you a good SEO value. Do not try to expect SEO value from comments only. They only add, no standalone job.

      Ah, I wasn't sure whether to use my name or my website name, so thanks for addressing that!
