If you post a comment and it has a link back to YOUR site I will remove the link, Why you ask? Well its quite simple, because my website is not to be used as a stepping stone to help improve your site rankings. I don’t do it on other sites and would appreciate it if you do not do it on mine.
There are exceptions to this rule however
If your site is 100% non-profit free as in bear and speech AND
If you are linking to a site that not only relates to the subject in which you are posting BUT also needs to be relavant enough that there is something of added value to the subject and not just something we could get the gist of by just simple saying “my site”. Below are 2 examples of what is acceptable in a comment and not acceptable.
Not a valid link example: “we were just discussing this exact issue over at my site www.mysite.com and blah blah blah”.
Valid link example: “I see you are thinking of converting your mower to fuel injection, I have a great write up of this at my site and here is the link www.mysite.com, let me know if you have any questions”.
In example 2 your link may still be removed if I visit the site and its locked to NON-PAYING members or any other “Gotchas” that involve money or donations.
