Engage In Writing Comments The Right Way
But you need to comment properly for it even to matter.
The most common reason for commenting is to build backlinks. And secondly, to gain more website visitors.
True, but is it a smart strategy? Brian Clark said “yes and no.”
Let’s get engaged the RIGHT way…
Write Meaningful Comments
A poorly thought-out comment will be a waste of time. Think about what your writing and if you need to, erase the entire comment and start over. Don’t just write anything to get a backlink.
Read The Post Before Commenting
Don’t think about commenting before reading the article. Only comment when you have something to discuss in relation to the post. Otherwise, if you drop down to the comment form you may only look stupid. Does the title really mean what it says? I’ve been fooled a time or two and for good reason. Those blog owners know what it takes to get readers.
Write More Than Two Words
Two words. Three words. Four words. No. Let’s make a complete sentence that will attract those visitors to your blog. Remember, you want visitors. If you write a more lengthy meaningful comment, readers will see you have something to say and possibly come visit your blog.
Only Add Healthy Comments
If the comments are not going to be juice filled, don’t do it. Content is king and that’s what will get you noticed. You want to build a relationship with the owner, current readers, and new visitors to come. Great content will allow you to build those lasting blog relationships that drive visitors to you.
Take a Unique Stance
The same old comment can be boring. Try to put a twist on your comment writing skills each time. Unique is what makes us different.
Things you should NOT do…
Put Keywords In the Name Area
Having keywords in the name area will probably just get your comment deleted and fast. You should only put your name there for a more personal look. It’s okay to add your website, such as BlogMeanscom or something similar. Again though, your name adds a personal touch.
Don’t Add Your Domain URL in The Comment
I know you want to insure readers will see you, but there is no need to add it again. The URL is already listed under your name. Most website visitors will quickly find this out.
Go Outside Your Niche If Building Backlinks
Planning on building backlinks? YES! That’s okay, so long as you stick to your niche. Google will rank your website better when content is relevant. If you are commenting on other niches it’s best to just leave out your URL.
Cursing usally just gets the comment deleted. Not all sites are kid friendly, but never the less you shouldn’t do so as a courtesy.
Argue with Other Commenters
Stating your opinions is okay. However, when it turns to arguing about something it’s not. Discuss the varying matters, but without all the bickering. Bringing up valid points makes for more thought, as to arguing just leads to wasted time and effort.
Blog commenting should be a part of your business. They can help build your own community through new relationships and create long term ones as well. But blog comments should follow having great content, meaninful thoughts, and relate to the writing.
Go ahead, write your comment!
