John Mueller posted this comment after someone asked if Reddit comments are dofollow or not.

The person wrote: “I recently wrote a comment on another comment regarding this, and I just did a double-take and Reddit comments indeed appear to not have the “nofollow” link?

So, are Reddit comments then essentially dofollow and SEO-worthy?

How do they work?”

Search volumes are very important to understand how your blogs and your content could impact your overall impressions.

In order to perform the task, you must know the fact that targeting low search volumes could be a great avenue, especially if your content is very niche related and with an overall small following online.

Given the number of search volumes, finding the right keyword could drastically boost your traffic, even if it has low searches.

Mobile Is the Focus
