The reason that I am asking is when you look at the source code of an article on a newspaper site that also has comments, the comments do not show up in the source code. I don't know what to make of this. Is there a benefit to having a backlink from the comments section of a newspaper article or not?
Also, this is a little different from my first question, but in general, are comments on newspaper articles going to be no follow? And if they are, are they of any benefit?
I would appreciate your help on this.
I would look to see if the newspaper has a forum divided by region; then you could get widget + location links.
Beyond 50-75 backlinks the value diminishes greatly. If the site topic is not related to news or newsprint media I wouldn't bother as most tend to nofollow links.
1 backlink will atleast get you 100+ unique visitors, depending upon popularity of those newspapers.
Do you think this is possible even if the newspaper article does not show up in the SERP for a specific keyword search?
Also beware of this kind of link-building technique ;)
If I post one comment in articles related to my subject in 5 different newspapers, would that be considered ok?
That would be 5 backlinks. I don't think that's a lot. I don't want it to appear as if I am only commenting to have backlinks.
But these are only useful for traffic and i guess will not count towards SERP rankings as most of these comments are no follow but that does not really prevent you to not comment there.
