Blog comments can legitimately help your brand if done correctly.
The problem? Many people in SEO don’t use them correctly.
Over the years, blog comments have been misused and abused.

Backlinks are important for both search engines and end users. For the search engines, it helps them determine how authoritative and relevant your site is on the topic that you rank for.

Let’s face it: Your website traffic has an indirect impact on the profits of your business.
Poor traffic generation will typically lead to poor conversions. And as we know, poor conversions generate low revenue, leaving your business with little to no profit.
