Techniques of blog commenting
In this, a part of the article on Blog Commenting 1 shall consider commenting strategies. That confirms your comments are welcome and accepted. I will be able to also touch on some “Blog commenting don’t” and tell you about some useful plugins. Which will make your blog more popular.
Commenting on people blogs
Comment on high traffic blogs. Commenting on high traffic blogs may make you relevant targeted traffic. If you allow smart and insightful comments – you’ll get tons of traffic, especially if you comment early (discussed later). To estimate traffic to a blog, use one among the subsequent services:
Comment on blogs you wish
Give preference to those blogs that you simply enjoy reading and have something valuable to feature too. This may assist you to write down authentic comments and increase your chances of being accepted. Link to those blogs in your own blog’s entries and therefore the likelihood is that you’ll be linked back. But albeit not, it’s still worth linking bent high ranking topical blogs in your niche as this is often good for your own rankings.
Comment on posts that you’ve got a worth to feature:
Don’t comment for the sake of getting a backlink only. Your comment will be interesting and authentic, and experienced bloggers will sense the insincerity and are likely to disregard your comment. Instead, attempt to discuss the posts that basically interest you and that you’ve got something valuable to feature. You’ll add an expert opinion, share personal experience, pose an issue for other commenters or simply ask the poster to clarify his point. regardless of the form is, making a clear contribution to a discussion will assist you to urge attention of the readers and benevolent disposition of the blog owner.
Comment early: If you calculate traffic, attempt to discuss posts that have 5 or fewer comments at the time. People rarely read the long chain of comments albeit the post is great. Therefore you simply have chances to urge noticed if you’re at the highest of the comment chain. Blogs wit high traffic usually have a daily posting schedule which is pretty easy to work out. And once its done, make it a habit visiting those blogs shortly after an update and leave a comment comments to posts that you’ll make a wise contribution.
Comment on recent and/or active posts: Popular blogs often have separate categories for recent and therefore the most active posts. Attempt to comment totally on those, as this may bring you more traffic and make your contribution more visible both to the readers and therefore the blog owners.
Leave many comments on equivalent blogs:
It’s better to comment tons on an equivalent blog, rather than just leaving one discuss as many blogs as possible. Leaving many quality comments on an equivalent blogs causes you to conspicuous and tells the readers and therefore the blog owners that are genuinely curious about the discussion. Which successively will earn you an honest reputation and convey highly targeted traffic to your site.
It also saves you time and lifts a headache of wanting to remember where you haven’t commented for a short time, in order to not leave people questions and remarks unanswered. It’s quality, not quantity that matters within the blog numbers. It’s both quality and quantity that matters on an equivalent blog.
Submit your posts to social bookmarks:
Once you find a stimulating blog post, submit it to your favourite social bookmarking sites (such as del.icio.us, e.g.). By doing so you’ll increase your authority at those sites and build your relationships with the blog owners. Both of which can assist you to market your own blog and make a reputation within the blogosphere.
Dealing with comments on your own blog:
Surprising or not, but encouraging people to discuss your blog are often even more rewarding than commenting yourself at other blogs. This will bring you traffic, permanent audience and, if your blog is basically interesting and rich of useful information. Will cause you to a reputation recognizable by popular bloggers in your niche.
But how are you able to encourage visitors to comment?
Well, there are a variety of the way to realize that, and an easy one is to form your blog Dofollow. But I’ll revisit to the present a touch later, and for now, I will be able to discuss other ways to form your blog more popular. And therefore the first one is blog content.
Use simple language: Write your posts during a simple language, as if you’re lecturing the audience. I don’t mean writing oversimplified texts with all essential technical side washed out – in no case do you have to do that! But attempt to keep a conversational tone. Even complex things are often explained in plain language.
The balance between intricacy and controversy:
Make your posts intelligent, thought-provoking, but, at an equivalent time, somewhat controversial. Leave room for your readers to return up with their own view of things and divulge the “error”. contribute some uncertainty and let the readers find out the missing bits by themselves! there’s nothing that creates a person so pleased with himself because of the realisation of his own wit! Posts like which will encourage great comments, and great comments will make your blog even better and convey even more readers – the entire process is simply like an avalanche!
Post regularly: Regularity in posting is tremendously important to stay your audience interested and eager to visit your blog again. Compute a posting schedule that’s both realistic and convenient for you, and stick with it. This may tell your audience when to expect a subsequent update and assist you to create your permanent readership.
Dealing with comments
Invite readers to comment. don’t just assume that if a piece of writing is interesting and useful, readers will want to comment. Instead, at the top of each post express readers your appreciation of their feedback and invite them to go away a comment.
Quick approval. Ideally, readers like to see their comments appear instantly within the thread to stay the conversation alive. So don’t deprive them of that chance, moderate and approve good comments as soon as possible.
Reply to comments. If the comment is quite just plain “Thanks for the good post!”, especially if it marks concerns raised in your post or asks you an issue – reply thereto as soon as possible.
Reward best commenters. you’ll either do the simplest comments review and publish it as a daily entry on the house page linking bent the first post or, alternatively, just edit the post itself and include quotes from best commenters at rock bottom. Either way, express your appreciation of the neatest and most prolific contributors.
CommentLuv may be a WordPress plugin, which fetches the title of the commenter’s latest post and displays it slightly below the comment he/she made on your blog. It’s an excellent thanks to showing appreciation for the commenters contribution to your blog and stimulate them to go away further comments.
I strongly recommend installing this plugin then submitting your blog to a do-follow blog search engines and networks. this might notably improve your blog’s popularity and convey tons of latest visitors to your site, a number of which can become your permanent readership and thus a possible source of your income.
This is another great plugin to point out your readers which posts on your blog receive most comments and thus get more people involved within the most interesting discussions.
Blog commenting DON’Ts
- Do no comment just to urge a link. Leave a comment as long as you’ve got something valuable to feature.
- Don’t go approving comments like “Great post, thanks for sharing!”. These are normally used as spam and haven’t any chance of doing published.
- Don’t place a link to your site within a comment, unless the link is an important a part of an extended and informative comment. And even then I might recommend that, because the normal practice is to let your name (or name + keyword) be the link.
