Find your niche blogs to comment on

Check whether the comments posted are relevant or not. Why I don`t care about the do-follow or not because a right and relevant comment can bring you a decent traffic even from hell too. It totally depends upon your use of right words and right approach.
Alternative to Guest Posting
You are well aware what`s guest posting is all about – Back-links, Traffic and Page Rank. But not everyone cannot write a guest post to a reputed blog in a single go – especially when it comes to newbies, that`s where commenting comes into action. So there`s no harm commenting on a high PR blog – the which is most reputed in your niche. Just read some random articles(the one which suits you) and leave the best opinion about the same. Don`t worry take time – after all you are commenting on a reputed one in your niche.
Read First, Then Comment
Biggest mistake, a commentator do just before leaving their bad impression. What do you think? Are they fools sitting on the other side. They are smart enough to detect whether you have read the article or not before commenting on to it. Here`s a fact – “You are, what you comment”, you reflects your nature with what sort of comment you leave on other blogger. So it`s better to read and grab the idea behind the article, then leave your comment. And I bet, not only you will feel better this way, but the author and other readers will also appreciate your words. No doubt that you are going to receive uncountable hits from that comment.
Basic Rules To Follow
Everything starts with some basic rules to follow. So commenting has got it own too. First, do not write your blog name in the name field(write your own), a very common mistake. Use your photo or gravatar instead of some superstar or a cartoon character posing for you over there. It`s the best way to grab the attention of other readers and author itself. Never comments like “good article, nice article, thanks for sharing and all such spammy words”. Try to write something which relates to the article, which adds some value to it. And yes, feel free to criticize the article if you are not in support of something, but do state your reasons, don`t use abusive language to criticize it, it`s the worst thing you are going to do to yourself. Instead, use polite words and lucid language to justify what you want to put to the users.
