Blog Commenting: 3 Steps How to Drive Targeted Traffic to your Blog

how-to-drive-targeted-traffic-with-blog Commenting

Step 1. Grab Readers Attention with Blog Commenting

How do you grab reader attention with blog commenting? And look at how many people are commenting on the article?

You can grab reader attention with blog commenting by enhancing the overall looking of the entire comment which including Gravatar, Full Name, and Website Link.

Gravatar, people looking at visual content first then visual content will motivate readers to read texts, in this case, is your profile photo.

When you’re at Gravatar, you can sign-up for a free account using the email address also for blog commenting, and your profile picture will show up.

Full Name. Your full name will help gain more recognition, brand awareness, and personality growth.

Avoid only using your first name, if your name were Louis, there will also be another Louis’s commenting on the same article as you.

Email address for blog commenting. have a separated email for blog commenting and a different email for business opportunities.

Avoid using fakes email address, firstly you’ll already lose your business opportunities.

Blog commenting using the email address that you’ve sign-up for Gravatar to see your profile picture appeared.

Website link, only commenting on blogs that allow you to include your website link. Otherwise, you won’t be able to improve your backlinks for SEO.

There are some blogs that do not allow website link but their content might need to be outstanding and unique to attract commenters.

All you have to do is find blogs that allow website link in blog commenting and 80% of blogs will allow blog commenting with a website link.

 

Step 2. Share Somewhat Useful Comments to get a Higher CTR

Comments that like “great article, thank you.” Or “nice post man.” Akismet is a comments spam filter. A comment like that often ends up into Akismet.

Complimenting on every single post is the best way to leave a comment on other blogs.

Avoid doing a long blog post comment. I’ve come across several blog post with bloggers are willing to leave a 500-word comment on an article. Which guest posting marketing would be a better alternative instead.

An example of a comment from a previous article, they commenting on blogs with a very professional layout, yep, very long. A few days later, I did copyright checks and found their comment is copying from one of QuickSprout posts.

Leave a short comment would be great but not 1 or 2 words comment, when you see a lot of people leaving long comments.

Leave a long comment when you see a lot of people leaving short comments.

 

Step 3. Keep Commenting to Build Backlinks

While you’re waiting for your comments to get approved.

Go ahead and keep on commenting on a lot of blog posts, leave some value and keep compliment other people contributions.

Do not worry about whether your comments will get accepted.

Keep commenting is your goal to drive traffic to your blog, but also to build backlinks.

Now that you’ve cleared on how blog commenting could help your online business.

10 Blog Commenting Tips to Drive Targeted Traffic to your Blog even faster

1. Link your website to the about page. Most blogger will be new to know you, the about page would be a good starting point. The homepage should also be fine.

2. Avoid company name or keywords name when blog commenting. People want to know people behind the brand. A commenter name with real name compares to “Lose Weight Today”, most people will completely ignore the comment.

3. Improve Gravatar image resolution. Gravatar, as mentioned, is visual content what drives people to look at the content of the comment. Gravatar provides high image resolution and according to Gravatar, it’s time to update your profile pixel.

4. Write relevant comments to the topic. Either a story, experience, or anything but the important is relevant to blog topic. And obviously, it’ll show you haven’t read the post and just want to leave a comment.

5. Focus on building a relationship. A part of SEO purposes like link building via blog commenting. Blog commenting can also a marketing tool for relationship building and be sure to leverage both.

6. Be the first one to comment. The first commenter gets to see first as readers scroll down to the comment section. To be the first person to comment on blogs is by using a FeedReader.

7. Mention other commenters. This shows you’re reading what others are saying which will give the author be more interested in what you’re saying in blog commenting.

8. Tweet about your comment. Once you left a comment, go ahead and send a tweet to your followers and mention the author.

9. Stands out from blog comment. If you see a lot of short comments in an article, write up a long blog comment one that will make you different. On the contrary, if you see a lot of long blog comments, all you have to do is write a short and sweet comment to make yourself stands out.

10. Use signature correctly. Is it necessary to leave a signature when commenting on blogs? I’ve seen short blog commenting and long comments that include a signature. It’s completely up to you when you feel like you’ve excessively over using when blog commenting.

  1. Hi Louis,

    Good tips bro! Glad you’re spreading the blog commenting word because it is an easy, simple way to spend 5-10 minutes, for building strong friendships with influential bloggers. I often go through every comment I receive and click through to the commentor’s blog, to share my thoughts through a comment and to tweet the post to my 45,000 followers. Which I’m doing now 😉 Thanks a bunch Louis!

    Ryan

    1. Hey Ryan, I’ve noticed your tweet on Twitter but I’ll just ignore Twitter for now for the next experiment purposes, Thank you for stopping Ryan, I’d love to comment on your blog if you could provide a website link though.

      Cheers,
      LH Louis

      1. Hi Louis,

        Just click on my name my friend 😉 It’s linked to my website. Then you can click the link to my blog.

        Here it is: http://www.bloggingfromparadise.com/blog/

        Thanks!

        1. Ryan! Just left a comment over the article.

  2. Good thing you followed your own advice and have gravatar, Louis! Had to fish out your comment at TrafficGenerationCafe.com from spam (I hate those spam filters sometimes!). The only reason I spotted it was because it had a gravatar and the others didn’t! 🙌

    By the way… I was told by one of the leading SEO experts, Eric Enge, to never-ever use CommentLuv to connect to your latest post. Could definitely be seen as a spammy tactic by Google.

    IF Google traffic matters, that is. If you are getting more traffic from comments than you’d ever hope to get from Google, then who cares, right?

    1. Nah it’s phycology advice from experts I stole from. Wow Ana, I guess Comment Luv is facing an issue there.

      Not actually, my goal of writing articles experimenting how Neil Patel tactics could help a website getting free traffic from Google. Otherwise, blog commenting is also a great way to build backlinks.

      I used to ignore Google because I didn’t want to learn SEO, it’s simple but Neil Patel is a game changer.

  3. Hi Louis,

    You have written about one of my favorite topics: Commenting. You sure have given some great advice here for people to follow.

    I always say “Commenting is the backbone of your blog” and it works both ways. When going to someone’s blog, address them by their name, tell them how much you liked the blog, and of course you have to read it lol.

    I can tell you that I have received more readers on my blog just from leaving a comment. People do read the comment section!

    Moreover, you have brought to light the many aspects of how comments work from starting a relationship with a blogger to how well comments drive traffic to your own blog.

    I’m taking one tip here that I absolutely LOVE…making my CommentLuv link to my about page. Thanks for the advice and I’ll be spreading this around.

    -Donna

    1. Hi Donna,

      Love the advice, Donna, making comment Luv links to the about page is definitely a great way to warming cold traffic.

  4. Hi Louis,

    I found this post through Donna Merrill’s share on Facebook and am glad I clicked through! These are really great tips! I don’t understand why so many bloggers don’t understand how useful commenting on other blogs is. That is, valuable comments. I have a love-hate relationship with CommentLuv. I think some leave a comment just to leave a link. Sadly, I use it off and on with both of my sites.

    Anyway, spot on advice! I’ll be passing it on as I know many that will find your post as valuable as I have.
