Increase Traffic Through Blog Comment


If you are not an SEO expert and just an ordinary  blogger like me, commenting is one of the  easiest  way to increase  blog traffic. Be an active commenter and you will have a bigger chance to increase the blog traffic of your site. When you are writing a comment, keep in mind  that a good commenting reflects to you as a blogger and  readers will have a chance to visit  and comment back to your site too. Leaving comments on blogs that are relevant to your niche will attract even more readers .

 Here are the things to keep in mind when commenting.
1. Avoid spammy comments- Put yourself in others shoes, how would you feel if your blog receives comments like  " nice post" "nice tips" " or "thanks for posting". Don't just resort to  spammy comments. A  quality response only shows that you took time reading  the post and composing a quality response. There are some  people  who not only read the post but the comments as well. An informative and respectful  comment compel others to visit your blog .

2. Frequent Comment- One way of forming a good relationship with other bloggers is by frequent commenting. They will recognize you as a regular commenter that may lead  a way for a good relationship to other bloggers. Forming a good relationship can be an advatage, they might give you some tips and technigue on blogging, be a guest post or even  introduced you to another money making sites ,paid post and direct advertisers.

3. Create a Gravatar- Commenting is done on a computer so it is better to have a photo of you to at least get connected with other blogs you are commenting to. Gravatar, helps you being recognised by others through every comments you made thus compelling them to visit and comment to your blog too.

4. Respond to comments- Commenters usually asks question as a comment. This is  good  for your blog, questions and answers added content to your blog . Answering a question encourages  the commenters   to  go back to your site for an answer to their queries.

5. Comment Nicely-  If you don't agree with the post , make a nice comments by voicing your opinion  but say it in a nice way and not a disparaging remarks.  A debate is healthy as long as you watch your   words because it will reflect to you as a blogger . You don't want to  lose readers because of rude  and insensitive comments.
