It can help but it is usually part of an overall strategy.

If you can reach out to a company whos viewers would be good potential customers then those are the people you would want to reach out to and build a relationship with. And that usually involves just commenting without adding your link for a while.

I have found some contracting blogs that contractors update themselves and I have been following them for a bit. I also do linking through LinkVana to drive traffic. Just seeing if I am missing anything out there ya know.

I stopped building links to my business site for the most part.

I would be intertested in seeing the videos that make for you, but aside from there you will run into problems eventually.

The problem will look like this.

Imagine 100 people that have service based businesses that use linkvana whatever the name is.

Now they build out properties for those 100 companies onto 300 web 2.0's, social accounts, ect.

If you were military next gen technology that could scan the internet for patterns what would you find?

We call it a footprint, and Google will simply take their napalm to the whole "network" and it will be vaporized.

That is what eventually will happen. You have articles on , for example, a Tumblr blog that has tons of articles dating back months.

How much you want to be there is a similar web2.0 out there on wordpress that looks almost exactly the same?

"Launch Nuclear Attack on Blog Network"

Building web2.0 properties is "white hat" enough if you do it on your own and your are creating value to the user, not if you are tring to move your keywords up in the serps.

Build better links today and let those ugly ones taper off.

You can achieve almost the same success but do it in a branded way that gives "relevance" to the social and local community. That I think what they mean by white hat anyhow. ..

All I am used to doing is blogging, reviews, commenting, and LinkVana...I am trying to find different avenues to go down. Thanks

I have been kicking around the idea of doing some blog commenting...has anyone had any real success with this?

Blog commenting still works, but it's a beaten to death tactic. Some automated programs will generate thouands of blog comments for you, however what used to work really well 2 years will tank your site in no time now. Best thing to, set your google alerts to terms that will bring you traffic. Example, if your a plumbing company that specializes in water heaters set your alerts to new water heater model or updated water heater model. Once you get a few set up the alerts will trigger, now if you get a blog that triggered your alert take a second and comment on it if you can, same for local area blogs, use this technique with g+ and you should see some results.
