What am I saying in essence? Using blog comments can help you expose your own blog or build traffic whether you are commenting in other people’s blog or you are generating comments on your own blog. However, I am going to show you ways through which you can generate traffic to your blogs by commenting on other people’s blogs.
Explore Google To Your Profit
Do a search on Google for those exact keywords that you’re using. Visit the first 5 results and leave useful comments on each. Yes, they are your competitors’ blogs but considering the fact that you are looking for more exposure which they already have, you can use them to achieve your aim.
Register With Commentluv
This is a program where you can comment on people’s blog to leave a link through which those who are interested in knowing more about what you have to offer could find you. There are several tips that can help you to get the best out of this feature. First, you must make your comments useful and targeted to the topic of discussion. Second, you should end your comments with a call to action and finally, you should study and know how to use commentluv. Just jumping in to build your traffic is not enough: because you might be missing something. Take your time to explore it’s usefulness.
Follow Other Blogs
Commenting on other blogs on your niche will not only gain you more exposure but will also advertise your expertise. Quality regular comments in at least 45 to 60 other blogs are good ways of link-building that will help expose you.
Reference To Posts And Comments
In other people’s blogs, you might notice a comment that is pulling the crowd. Referencing to it with another call to action but qualitative comment is a great way of getting noticed. You can also make reference to other posts from other blogs and have them do same for you. The result is amazing.
Attach Hyperlinked Keyword To Your Comments
There is a tool that you could use to do this; example is the keyword luv plugin. This feature auto highlights and underlines the first keyword after @ in your comments without spaces. For instance, when you write your name@yourkeywordwithoutspace, the keyword is hyperlinked. This feature will also gain you traffic from the search engines when those keywords are searched.
Another Powerful Method Is By Asking A Question
Questions do inspire curiosity. If you clicked through to a blog and found it of a very high quality, asking a question can lead to a relationship with the author and possibly linking your own blog (most times). This is still a good way of building back links to your blog thereby gaining more exposure from the ranking blogs.
