Last week I offered up my first two boost your blog traffic tips: The Ultimate Blog Challenge and Guest Blogging. Today I want to talk to you about blog commenting.
One of the things that sets a blog apart from a website is the ability to post comments and engage visitor interaction. Blog visitors can let a blogger know how they felt about their post. They may agree with the post. They may disagree. They may even have something unique and valuable to add to the conversation.
But how will blog commenting (you commenting on other blogs) help you bring in more traffic to your blog?
As a blogger you want to continually create more ways for blog readers to find your blog. One of the ways you can do this is by commenting on other blogs. Every time you leave a comment, and you fill out the comment form, you are leaving a way for blog readers to find you. They can click on the highlighted link and make their way to your blog—keeping them there is up to you and your blog content.
If the blogs you are commenting on have certain plug-ins installed—such as CommentLuv or Livefyre—a link to your last blog post will show up below your comment. This allows viewers to see the title of your last post and follow the link directly to it. I use CommentLuv on this blog. I love it!
Blog commenting can also help you procure guest posting spots. As a blogger, I often follow links to posts of bloggers who have left comments on my site. I have found several blogs I know follow just from those comments. If a fellow blogger likes what they see (from your comment and your own blog posts) they may feel inclined to ask you to guest post on their blog.
