As we know, there are many backlinks building strategies. Using insertion of links on comments is one of the easiest ways  to build links on your site but it has 50/50 chances because, if the comments on the sites you’re inserting your links are moderated, there is every likelihood that your comment will not be approved. To increase the chance of your comment being approved, ensure to make valuable contributions in post comments. This can even draw the attention of the site owner to wanting to collaborate with you, which may lead to you getting more proper links from him or giving you guest post offer. Don’t just put few words and embed your link — give out value that can earn you the approval. It will also help you build relationship with other bloggers.

Is post comment link DoFollow? The answer is NO.

But at least it gives you visibility, and it would increase the chances of crawling and indexing of your pages by search engines' crawlers.

Last year, I published a post on September, it was not indexed after one month. In October, I went to a site with very high authority that just published article related to mine. I left a comment and embedded my link, the following  day, I noticed spike in page views of that post and saw that site as one of the referring domains in my site stat. I checked and found out that my post has been indexed. I achieved two things: getting referral traffic from the site and also fast tracking indexing process of the post. The post is currently ranking 1 on Google search results page.
