Hi,

Getting back links from the same domain is worth or not?

For example:
I have commented on a blog post of a website and again commenting on different blog post of a same website is good or bad?

Will Google count as 2 back links from that website ?

Hi Srividya and welcome to WebmasterWorld [webmasterworld.com]

Yes they will both be counted however dropping links via comments has little link juice and some may argue these types of links may even count against you as spam & the type of backlinks that should be disavowed.

Thanks for your reply. So there's no harm commenting on 1 blog post/website ?While I was checking the back links of my competitors I find they have commented on many blog post (dropping their links below the comments) on same website. So I just want to know how these blog comments will treated by Google?

Welcome to WebmasterWorld

Because it's what your competitors do doesn't make it right. These are the techniques so old that it has lost it's value.

Doing that is spamming and it'll do nothing for the reputation and brand.

There are much better ways to do it properly, and you'll find many great ideas in these forums at WebmasterWorld. [webmasterworld.com]

Thanks again!

How important is Alt tag for images in the website in search engine optimisation? Should we give keywords to the Alt tag?

The Alt tag is there to describe the image so that visitors with a visual disability know what the image is about.
Stuffing it with keywords is really just spam and the search engines can easily spot this.

Search engines do not rank web pages according to which site has the most relevant keywords in alt tags, H1, title, etc. You are approaching the problem as if Google is a simple keyword matching engine.

Simple keyword matching is a way of ranking sites. It means someone searches with certain keywords and the search engine finds sites that have those same keywords (or synonyms) on the web page. That is not how modern search engines work.

Search engines do not even rank website by who has the most links.

Your approach is the way SEO used to be done seventeen or ten years ago. It has no relevance to how search engines rank web pages today.

Getting backlink from the same domain is not very much helpful. If you build backlink on the different domain then it will be more helpful. But quality is a big issue, you must build backlink on high authority sites.

Getting a backlinks from high domain authority site more than twice will always worth, but not on commenting activities.

Getting a backlinks from high domain authority site...


There is no such thing as "domain authority."
