Blog Comments :
Blog comments are what make a blog interactive and social. The most popular blogs have a very interactive community who voice their opinions on posts frequently. It's that social aspect that makes blogs such a powerful component of the social web. People like to feel involved. Leaving blog comments allows readers to join in on the conversation about a topic that interests them. Blog comments are the lifeblood of a blog. Comments are what separates a blog from a static website. As the conversation builds, so will your relationship with your readers and so will your blog's popularity. Encourage your readers to join in the discussion and leave comments and respond promptly to the comments left by your readers to make them feel valued. Just as you don't like to be ignored when you address someone in person, you don't want to ignore your readers when they address you through a blog comment.
Importance of Blog Commenting :
Blog commenting has become more popular in today's world and it helps to increase traffic and improve search engine
ranking of websites. Blogging helps people to share ideas and views with others, post some new information which is not added in the article and paves the way for discussions, etc. While posting we add our name and URLs that helps us in creating back links.
Choosing relevant Blog :
In order to be effective in promotion, blog comments need to be on related niche blogs, valuable, timely and consistent
with the URL naming convention. For choosing such relevant do follow blogs, we do keywords search using search engines.
The search results give you links that describe topics on the keywords. Now you can start commenting and discussing with the participants of that blog. Hence, choosing relevant blogs is one of ways for increasing free back links for your
website. An interesting aspect of blog comments is the fact that people who leave comments on your blog can also leave links to other blogs or websites or their own blogs to further the conversation. These links can be a great resource to help you find new blogs to read, like-minded bloggers, and new post ideas. Additionally, bloggers can leave trackbacks on your blog through blog comments when they link to your blog posts on their blogs. Trackbacks are another great way to help you build relationships with other bloggers as well as to drive new traffic to your blog from the links on those other blogs.
Why blogs omit registration and login?
Most of the blog readers and blog commentators do not like registration and login as they feel that blogs should be
informative and easy to get ideas quickly. But some of the blog owners feel that people who login can be engaged and more committed in blog community to give valuable comments. As people always look for an easy method, blog owners do not want the registration and login method.
How to write comments?
- Back links: Before submitting a comment, we must provide url in the comment. Adding url and name along with the comment,
is one way of getting inbound links to website.
- Popularity: Adding valuable comments to blogs would increase popularity to your website. Blog commenting is a good way to make your names familiar with many bloggers across the world. Spend time on writing valuable comments for others blog; you will receive valuable comments for your website. Number of valuable comments on others blog is directly proportional to number of comments for your website.
What search engines do for comments?
Search engines always look for fresh and new content. Blog commenting and forum discussions are often featured high in search results. Search engines see blog comments as contents and not as comments. Sometimes it is like other people writing contents for you. People engage themselves by posting a comment by asking a question, someone would reply in their comments, blog owners can provide some other resource, and thus it continues till they get the right answers. Blog commenting actual paves the way for developing good content.
As a blogger, even if you are some blog rockstar, you should be playing two roles: the blogger and the commentator. This is very much a circle of communicating in where you should give and receive information… not just give or not just expect to receive. You should be blogging regularly and you should be commenting regularly on websites. You also should try to make an effort to engage in conversation on both your blog and on other blogs. Now, when I say that, I mean you might want to interact with the other commentators on other blogs as well. The bonus to doing it is that you could end up widening your own blog circle in the end, as well as learning a great deal more.
Finally by reading all the above mentioned process of blog commenting, one can understand the importance of blog
commenting and adopt few techniques while writing a comment.
