Blog Commenting Technique: The No-Nonsense Guide that Actually Converts
by Prosper Noah
An effective blog commenting technique definitely exposes your blog to a new audience as well as increasing your subscribers and page views. If you are looking for a way to improve your blog commenting technique, then here is the last bus stop where you can learn all that you need to be successful.
There are many ways you can improve your blog commenting technique. However, finding ways that actually work to bring visitors and ultimately subscribers to your blog still remain the important thing. Before we dive into this, you need to understand a few things.
What is Blog Commenting and its Importance?
Now let me answer this question with a question. What is a blog without a community of readers?
A blog does not only need readers but readers who interact with the contents: with their questions, answers, contributions and lots more.
If you own a blog that publishes lots of quality articles on a regular basis, then you’ll love it
- When readers appreciate your hard work
- When they ask questions
- When they contribute to a post
It encourages the author to keep posting more quality contents that you love.
What are some Blog Commenting Examples?
You’ve probably visited lots of blogs and have seen different opinions in the comment section.
Some comments include
“Thanks for sharing this article”
“Loved the Post”
“Great Post, etc”
You can see from the above there are actually different types of comments, but which of them actually convert?
How to Comment on Blogs
You are looking for ways to comment the right way on blogs that in turn converts. When we say convert, there are different meanings starting from
- Commenting for Traffic Conversion
- Commenting to Build Relationships with the Authors and his Readers
- Commenting for SEO in other words: to rank higher on SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages)
Whether you are commenting for the purposes listed above, I’ve got you covered. You are going to learn the best ways to comment so you can achieve what you so desire.
Note: When commenting, our best tip and advice is to build a relationship.
How to Comment on Blogs for the Purpose of Traffic
As just mentioned, we have different reasons for commenting on blogs, and the first one is commenting for traffic.
Are your aims going to be for traffic? Well, there are very few ways that work for commenting with the sole aim of driving traffic:
- Look for Blogs in your Niche.
It’s always advisable that you comment on the ones in your niche because it helps you get more targeted traffic and exposure, contributing to what you are interested in.
In fact, you won’t be overstressed since you already know about the niche; however, the most important thing is that the blog you would be commenting on in this aspect has to be
- Active, in other words, publishes regularly and
- Have a decent amount of traffic and followers
2. How do you know which blogs have followers and traffic?
Probably the one that gets tons of comments and is popular in its field.[Host bloggers comments: I heard 30 comments indicate an active blog. You could also Google Top Blogs + Your Niche.]
What you must know when commenting for traffic:
3. Comment Relevancy
When commenting for traffic, do make sure your comments are relevant.
Don’t just pop in and leave a comment like some spammer.
The only way you are going to leave a comment that does not get you into the spam box is when you read the post and leave your opinions.
4. CommentLuv Enabled Blogs: Added Advantage
When leaving comments for traffic, you should also take note of blogs with commentLuv integration.
CommentLuv helps you display your most recent blog post in your comments. It should not be abused though!
I am going to show you how you can get to know blogs with the CommentLuv enabled feature.
5. How to Do Blog Commenting to Build Relationships with the Authors and Their Readers
This is the most recommended, however, it is very possible to drive huge traffic from this also.
Building a relationship with a blog’s author and readers is one of the best ways to build your blog as you would be adding quality to their blogs through your comments.
In order to build a relationship by commenting you need three important things:
6. A Gravatar
A Gravatar lets you display your image whenever you leave a comment on a WordPress blog and as well make you look professional.
I personally do not recommend you leave a comment with the default white author image.
When you use a Gravatar it shows the blog author who you really look like and creates the first impression. That is your first step.
7. Leave In-depth Comments.
I suppose you already know what I am driving at. Yes! Do not leave the one-line comment.
E.g. “Nice post”, ” Great article”, “Thanks for sharing ” etc.
While these comments may look nice, the truth is they are far from nice.
They actually make you look like that old spammer wanting to get backlinks to his site.
Those type of comments go well with any article on a blog and so they give an impression that you didn’t read the post.
So you need to read the post, leave your opinions via contributing in the comments.
Below is a perfect example of an in-depth comment by blogger Chris DeeWaard.
Help their readers too in your comments and you are going to build a relationship within few days!
8. Let Them Know You are Talking to Them in Your Comment
Spammers do not waste time in personalizing comments, so make sure you mention the author’s name in your comments.
Add a “Hi [Name] to grab his or her attention.
Make sure you visit the blogs regularly so you can appear active.
I always advise you to subscribe to the newsletter so you can get an alert of new posts.
When you do this, you easily build relationships with the authors and their readers.
9. Blog Commenting and SEO: Do comments really help you rank?
Commenting regularly can help you build some backlinks. However, they will not be such high-quality backlinks but when done on blogs with high Domain Authority and good Trust Flow, the comments could spike up your rankings a little.
But here is a secret about blog commenting and SEO that helps your blog a lot:
10. Rank for Your Name in Search Engines Plus Organic Traffic
Before I reveal this secret, let me tell ya a little quick discovery.
I recently came across a blogging friend, Andrew M. Warner of content ranked; well, he’s become a regular commenter on my blog, In fact, I see him on every blog I visit.
So? what about him?
Well, you won’t believe this: he leaves comments too, but guess…
He doesn’t leave a link to his website in any of his comments!
Well, I had to reveal his little secret to you; I just hope he doesn’t scold me when he gets to see this post LOL.
So the little secret is that it helps him rank for his name on search engines and probably lands some organic traffic to his blog.
The one great thing about him is that he leaves in-depth comments that get you impressed and the only way you can get in touch with him is to actually copy his name and pop it into Google search.
Which definitely lands him;
- More Organic Traffic
- High click-through rate
Such type of blog comments can help you increase your rankings.
Before we move on, let’s recap:
Few Blog Commenting Tips to Help you Comment Effectively on Blogs:
When you plan on doing blog commenting for any purpose, there are a few tips to help you succeed:
- Make sure you try to always read the post so you can know what to say in the comment section.
- Do not try to leave links in the comments field. WordPress already provides you with a field where you can put your blog homepage URL.
- Go for the sole aim of adding quality and value to the blog and not look like who’s only there for the traffic and backlinks.
How to Find Blog Commenting Sites Using 2 Ways
Many sites allow comments but you really can’t stop with a few that you’ve come across; you need to comment on as many as possible to increase your visibility and chances of success.
But how do you find so many of them?
11. By Following Blog Commenters
It’s very simple:
- Visit the blog
- Leave your comments
- Click through to the other comments you saw there
- Leave more comments
This lands you on other great blogs where you can find additional commenting opportunities.
12. Use a Tool
You may need a tool to help you easily filter which blogs accept comments and so am I recommending Drop My Link.
DML would help you find sites to comment on easily without having to use search strings. Though, search strings work too. But Drop My Link would save you some time.
How to Find Blog Commenting Sites with Drop My Link:
– First, you need to sign up for Drop My Link.
– Activate your account by verifying your email and then follow the instructions below the image.
In the field for keyword above, Enter your keyword. Probably the topic you would like to comment on E.G: “blog commenting”
When you hit search, you’d be provided in the search results with blog posts that allow comments in the “topic.”
So all you need do is click through to anyone that interests you and you’d like to leave a comment on.
That’s it with finding blog commenting sites with Drop My Link.
I definitely recommend you comment on blogs to build relationships with the readers and blog author, doing this alone would help pull other possible benefits.
I have come to the end of the post, and believe you now know all about the benefits of this blog commenting technique.

How to Use the Blog Commenting Technique to Convert Visitors to Subscribers
by Janice Wald
Prosper shared an impressive 12-part blog commenting technique.
Once you get visitors to your site by following this strategy, you need a way to convert them into followers.
Can you believe this?
Just over the weekend, I had a loyal reader write me to tell me she’s been reading my tips about how to grow your email list, but she never knew how to start an email list in the first place.
I have shared two email services that can help you create your subscriber lists: MailChimp and SendPulse.
Once you advertise your optins, readers who want them will sign up. They give their email in exchange for the free optin.
Your list of subscribers’ emails will be kept at the website of the service. After you publish, the service will send your newsletters containing links to your blog posts to your subscribers.
Readers, please share so other bloggers know about Prosper’s impressive blog commenting technique.
I look forward to your views in the comments section. What is your blog commenting technique like? Are there any tips you can add?
