    If you comment on relevant blogs and blog comments are not the only source of your backlinks, then why not?

    No, blog comment links are no follow, so there are no ranking benefits, but traffic can increase.

    They don't help at all. The links are mostly no-follow and the least of blogs who still provide do-follow links passes no link juice whatsoever.

    Many will say that it still can drive traffic but trust me they don't. Because most of the blogs are just flooded with spammers.

    Spam no. Genuine contributions yes - but indirectly.

    Like anything else, if you're taking part in a niche and adding value, you will eventually start relationships with new people and site owners, which is good for you long term.

    You need to target high DA blogs for blog commenting. Comments get rarely approved on blogs. Also, many blogs have removed the comments feature.

    bloggers shouldn't remove the comments feature - it's an additional source of traffic.
    and there are many ways to avoid spammers

    It is effective if you are providing genuine information, once it comes to irrelevant commenting then it is considered as spamming which is not a good act.

    Blog commenting has been an SEO strategy since the first time anyone opened up comments on their site in the first place. Mechanically, it’s very simple in concept. Blog comments are content on a page. Content on a page is indexed by Google. If a link is on a page, that link becomes part of Google’s analysis of SEO. Therefore, you can leave a blog comment with your link and have that linked indexed by Google, thus counting as a benefit to your SEO.

    This was the theory long ago, and worked until Google decided that it was too exploitative. Since then, a few elements have been put into place that make it a much less viable strategy than it used to be.

    Blog commenting could be useful if by doing that you start interesting conversation or post your opinion that is interesting enough for the readers so they would check your profile and read your own blog (if you have your blog on the same platform).
