Easy Link Building Tip: Check Out the D-List

What is the D-List?

The D-List (see below) is a list of blogs who have disabled the “no-follow” in their comments. What does this mean for you? Everytime you make a comment on one of these blogs, you will obtain an actual link. From an SEO standpoint, every incoming link that you can get will increase your Technorati ranking.

The better your ranking, the better your earning potential from the standpoint of increased traffic as well as ability to command higher advertising rates with sponsors on your site.

The DoFollow Blog list is courtesy of Courtney Tuttle and was created originally by Coleen as the D-List. This list does not include profane or pornographic sites.

Should You “Follow?” What’s In It For Your Site?

By joining the “Do Follow” movement, you make your site more attractive for readers to visit your site and comment while they are there. More comments make your site a more active place that readers will want to return to.

If you are concerned with the possibility of linking out to profane, pornographic or other sites that are against your morals, never fear. If you moderate your comments you always have the ability to delete the comment or delete the link.

How to “Follow” – “DoFollow” WordPress Plugin

Here is the link to the “DoFollow” WordPress plugin. It is very simple to install. Just download it to your computer and then upload it to your ‘plugin’ directory. As always, when installing new elements to your WordPress site, make sure you have a backup before you install!

How to “Follow” – Removing No Follow from Blogger.

Here is a link to BetaBlogger who explains how to remove the NoFollow attribute from your Blogger template. As always, whenever changing your template, make a back up first!

Life Learning Today Comment Policy

  • If you have opinions, thoughts, ideas to add, please share them by commenting!
  • Links will be allowed in comments as long as they are relevant and contribute constructively to the site. Disagreements and differing opinions are very welcome. Mean spirited personal attacks are not.
  • Links may be removed from one-liner, stop-in comments such as, “I like the site”, “You have a good site”, and “Thanks for the articleâ”?. I’m sure that everyone on the D-List would agree that these comments defeat the purpose. Most of these comments will be deleted.
  • I reserve the right to edit comments for grammar and spelling errors, when appropriate, and to remove comments that are profane.

How to Gain More Links Right Now!

Check out the D-List below! Visit some of the sites and contribute valuable ideas, thoughts and opinions to the conversations on those sites.

The D-List

UPDATE FEB 6, 2008:

Life Learning Today is no longer a Do-Follow site. The reason for this is we have been receiving many comments that link to inappropriate sites and we no longer have the time to check each one before approving the comments. If you have a comment regarding this, please feel free to contact us.

If you find this list useful, please consider linking to it.Additionally, you may copy this list in its entirety and place it on your site, as long as you link back to it using the code below this paragraph which will give credit to both the creator of the D-List, Coleen, and to Courtney, who has added to and maintained this list.

    The D-list is awesome. Long live the D.

  2. robinson go May 11, 2007 at 2:23 am #

    hello agent sully! cool site you have here but i thik you can still improve this. first, i saw your top commentators widget at the bottom, in my opinion, it’s much better if you place it at the top. also i see duplicate referrals of firefox toolbar. i’m actually thinking of joining the d-list. thanks for the info.

  3. robinson go May 11, 2007 at 2:25 am #

    hi agent sully, it’s me again. this is what i’m thinking over about being a dofollow blogger. it’s that i don’t want to moderate comments. what do you think?

  4. agentsully May 11, 2007 at 10:36 am #

    Dave – thanks for stopping by.

    Robinson – thank you for the critique. For right now I can only have the Top commentator widget at the bottom b/c anywhere else messes up my formatting. (working on how to fix that)

    There’s only one firefox referral. The other 2 are for Google Pack (which is awesome by the way) and an Adsense referral.

    moderating comments comes with the d-list territory if you don’t want your blog to get spammed. So far it’s not an issue.

    If you really don’t want to moderate comments you might want to close them altogether and do what Steve Pavlina does – establish a forum where your readers can discuss everything.

  5. agentsully May 11, 2007 at 10:37 am #

    Also you can always un-join the D-List at a later time if moderating comments becomes too much work.

  6. Neil May 13, 2007 at 4:53 pm #

    Hi Agent Sully,
    The D-List is a brilliant idea, I’m glad I discovered it! Also, I agree strongly with your comment policy. I too allow negative comments against my opinions, unless they are insulting and unconstructive. But since I get so few comments, I still allow short, one or two word comments. If ever I get too many, I may start deleting them. For now, I’m happy to get any feedback at all. 🙂

    Cheers!
    Neil

    That kind of info is really valuable. I´ll change my template right now to follow comments.
    Thanks a lot and feel free to visit me any day to have some fun.

    Cafe Cafe- cool! thanks for commenting!

  9. Philer July 24, 2007 at 11:13 pm #

    This would be really a valuable post. well done agentsully. Can you please post about “how could I remove the nofollow on blogspot” thanks.

  10. agentsully July 24, 2007 at 11:46 pm #

    Philer,

    I don’t have any experience with this, but if you click here you can see several search results for this topic.

    Best regards!
    Hope to see you again!

    For the new Blogger this is by far the way to go. If you are serious about getting your message out you have to put in the work.

    I just installed the DoFollow plugin on my blog. Thanks for the link to the D-List.

  13. Rapidshare Premium Link Generator August 6, 2007 at 11:10 pm #

    Great sharing.

  14. job guy September 12, 2007 at 10:51 am #

    This list is good and useful. But the problem is that a lot people out there would want to “misuse” it!

  15. moonwalks October 13, 2007 at 4:03 pm #

    and many are not using the do-follow plugin soon after they get listed on many do-follow lists like this one

  16. agentsully October 16, 2007 at 1:52 pm #

    Job guy and Moonwalks – that’s too bad. The way I look at it is, karma will catch up with folks eventually so I don’t worry about it.

    Thanks for commenting!

  17. Manish March 14, 2008 at 8:15 am #

    I still dont have any experience with this.

  18. Mitch Argon, Reno Real Estate March 19, 2008 at 10:11 pm #

    Hey – thanks for explaining this and posting the D-List resource.

    Maybe this movement will catch on. I’m glad I stopped by.

  19. Directory List April 12, 2008 at 4:23 pm #

    I get a 404 error when visiting the list. 🙁

  20. Jeet June 9, 2008 at 10:39 pm #

    I have heard the “U comment I Follow” multiple times but didn’t know about ‘movement’ !! Thanks for the great resource.

  21. Joe M June 21, 2008 at 11:23 am #

    I love this whole D-Z list concept – very catchy.

    Another great way to start link building is with link swaps. Many blogs and other sites spend an enormous amount of time stressing about the search engine effect of 1-way links – and not nearly enough time on the simple awareness & traffic building possible with 2-way links.

    A service that makes link affiliation much easier is: LnkPro. They are available at:

    http://www.lnkpro.com/

    A two way link is less valuable from an SEO perspective – but can be super valuable to your site or blog depending on who you swap links with.

    How nice of you to post the D-List. You have helped me tremendously. I am tweeting your post too.

  23. Bob The SR22 Insurance Guy February 8, 2010 at 9:07 pm #

    Great Blog. Just not sure why I am up at 3 a.m. reading this. 🙂

  24. satellite communication services March 16, 2010 at 4:33 am #

    thanks for your information you have given the step by step and easy method by which anybody get advantage from this trick especially this may be very useful for the SEO peoples.
