Google DNS helps Webmasters and Surfers

google-public-dns Being a webmaster for a domain, you may face a situation when you have to change your server/ hosting. And this change involves the name server change, and resulting in downtime due to DNS propagation. This DNS change may take place in around 24-48 hours, but with Google’s DNS it takes place in few hours. I recently had a server change for one of mine domain to a new VPS. My ISP was not loading the page even after 10 hours of change, while the site was active and functional in most parts of the world.

Than i decided to use the new Google DNS as one of author Gaurav suggested me with it, as the site was loading fine at his end since the DNS change. And seriously speaking that was really amazing, just after doing the changes i was able to view my domain. And their was a drastic improvement in the browsing speed also, the pages are also loading very fast.

I recommend everyone to give the new Public DNS from Google a try and experience the future of the coming web. The new DNS from Google are 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4, if you have problem implementing these do check our coming post setting up Google DNS on your machine.

How commenting could be dangerous?

I recently noticed some strange things wile viewing my Google Webmaster Tools. While viewing the links coming to my site, i become very happy at the first view but as i drilled in it, it turned to be one of the worst nightmare for me. As since i had started commenting regularly on 15-20 blogs that i follow, i had started loosing my search traffic, my new posts are not indexed in search engine the same day. After two three day’s they are indexed in the search engine, i tried to find out the reason, why it is happening? So i asked some fellow friends on a SEO forum, they suggested me to check the webmaster tools to get a clear idea.

What i noticed in the Webmaster Tools?

As stated, the first sight of the stats delighted me, when i viewed the 408 links coming back to my site. The screen shot attached below shows that, but there are 389 links coming back to colorsofnet.com. These 389 links put me puzzled as i had hardly made 40 to 45 comments on the blogs that i visit, and how could i get 389 links back from them. When i drilled into it to view these linking sites, i got the shock of a life time. Their were two three blogs that were having 100 back links to colorsofnet.com. And these are the blogs where i had made only 2-3 comments.

Why you received so many backlinks from these sites?

When you make comment on a blog, the comment appears in the recent comment widgets that carries your comment and the link to your site (not every comment widget carry your link). Those that display recent comments on every page with the commenter’s URL are actually hurting them. The main reason for hundred of back links is due to poor SEO and use of do-follow in comments. When a crawler crawls a site/blog it crawls a large number of pages at a time and updates them, the number of pages crawled at a time could be hundred, thousand or more depending on the crawler setting for your site/blog. When crawling takes place it captures those pages, and the URL’s with do-follow turns up as backlinks, resulting in hundred of backlinks instantly.

And such a great number of backlinks at a time will drink all your SEO Juice. All the hard work and effort that you had put is gone for the time being.

What you should do?

Firstly, check your recent comment widget for links in it. If the link is showing, apply no-follow to it or delink it from the recent comment widget.

Secondly, inform the blog which had these links in recent comments.

How long will these backlinks remain?

These backlinks are not going to last for ever, they will be gone in the next crawling session of the search engine. Then their will be only one backlink that you will be getting i.e. from the comment that you had made on that topic. But this crawling session may take place after 2 days, 1 month or even more.

Moreover, your efforts should be credited instantly now after a delay. I hope you all agree with it.

So, avoid these mistakes and help others do so. If you liked it than mark it on social networking sites.
