All bloggers know that commenting is good to increase traffic to their blog. Most of them visit many high ranked blogs to discuss and to increase PageRank and traffic too. They post comments on many blogs, in anticipation of getting some traffic, but are more often than not, disappointed to see that they are not getting any web traffic from their efforts. It can be somewhat discouraging, and you may gradually stop commenting on other blogs.
How To Comment Effectively To Increase Traffic To Your Blog
So, what is the problem here? What mistake have you made? Simple! You already made a habit of posting lifeless comments like “Good article,” “Nice post,” “Good Job,” “Waiting for your next post, this was a nice post” etc. It is wrong. It might be good for your Backlinks increasing strategy. But, you don’t know the real potential behind commenting.
Yes, you can increase your backlinks and simultaneously, you can get massive traffic from your comments. It will only happen if you spend at least a minute on the article and read it. If you read the article, then you can make a debate or some meaningful comment which will attract the readers, and they will click on your URL to know, who is behind this comment or discussion! They will come to your blog if they find your comments useful and it has some weight to it.
You can also keep in touch with particular bloggers of your niche via comments; apart from Facebook or Twitter. If you end up establishing some relationship with the blogger, then it could be useful in one way or the other. Readers will think that the author and the commenter have some ties. If the readers love the authors, then they will love you too. His reader will visit your blogs also.
Comment Kahuna (Risky if overused)
There is a software called Comment Kahuna, which can be used for commenting on other blogs. You can search for high page ranked Do Follow blogs using that software. You can browse the blogs, read articles and post comments too. Comment Kahuna even provides a single button feature to fill all the comments fields. Many bloggers misuse this software by posting the same comments to all blogs. They will not get any referral visitors from posting the same type of comments, and most of the bloggers (including me!) hate these types of comments come to their blog, and they will trash your comments. There might be much other software also available on the web, but it is not ethical if you use it to spam other’s blog. So use this software to identify good blogs to comment, and make sure that all your comments are relevant.
Try more Natural Way
If you find any comments in your blogs, then don’t be surprised that you got a comment from your reader. 80% of the comments you receive is from other bloggers in the blogosphere. It is not wrong to approve. Instead, you use these comments by commenting back to them and try to keep a relationship with them. They will visit your blogs again and again if they are your friend through comments. So, it is also a win-win situation-both for blogger and reader.
Some people use many links of their blogs in the comment field to attract visitors from the author’s blog. It is not wrong if the connection is related to the article, where you comment. But, don’t over post comments with your blog’s links and don’t overload the comment fields with many links. It might lead your comments to get rejected by the admin or author.
Comment wisely. It’s not just enough to make a mundane comment. Speak what your mind tells and don’t ever spam other’s blogs with unusual and unrelated links. Increase visitors along with backlinks by commenting wisely.
Be a nice blogger. Let me see, how will you comment on this post! :)
