How to do Blog Commenting for Traffic
Just as mentioned above, we have different reasons for commenting on blogs and the first or one of them is Commenting for traffic.
Are your aims going to be for Traffic? Well, there are very few ways that works for commenting with the sole aim of driving traffic
Look for Blogs in your Niche.
Its always advisable you comment on the ones on 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 over stressed as 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 I.E: Publishes regularly and
- Have some decent amount of traffic and followers.
How do you know a blog with followers and Traffic?
Probably the one that get tons of comments and is popular in it’s field.
Must Know when commenting for traffic
When commenting for Traffic do make sure you comment relevancy!
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.
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!
Am going to show you how you can get to know blogs with commentLuv enabled feature.
How to Do Blog Commenting to Build Relationship with the Authors and his Readers
This is the most recommended, however it is very possible to drive huge traffic from this also.
Building Relationship with a blog’s author and readers is one best ways to build your blog as you would be adding quality to their own blogs through your comments.
In order to build a relationship with commenting you need three important things
A Gravatar let’s 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.
Leave In-dept Comments.
I suppose you already know where am driving at; yes! Do not leave the one line comments.
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 gives 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-dept comment by Chris Deewaard.
Help their readers too in your comments and you are going to build relationship within few days!
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 subscribe to newsletter so you can get alert of new Posts.
When you do this, you easily build relationship with the authors and readers.
Even when they don’t happen to reply to your comments at times, you should not stop commenting as it helps you with more backlinks, exposure, etc.
Here is a detailed and Perfect post by Chris Deeward on why you should keep commenting on blogs even though they don’t reply to comments.
Blog Commenting in SEO: Do comments really help you rank?
Commenting regularly can help you build some backlinks however not so high quality backlinks but when done on blogs with high Domain Authority and good Trust Flow could spike up your rankings a little.
Firstly, Case Study by an SEO friend Anderson
Anderson built 20-50 indexed blog comments a day using OneHourBacklinks.com for a local search term.
After two weeks, the term went from out of the top 200 to position #20.
Another couple of orders, and it was up to #11 after a month.
Finally, he added 10 PR home page links to push it to #3. (So cheating a bit, but the point is still valid. :))
Bottom line: You CAN move your site using just comment backlinks.
I don’t recommend this approach, simply because it is susceptible to algorithm changes by Google. However, it shows that comments are still wildly effective for ranking.
Secondly Here is a secret of blog commenting in seo that helps your blog a lot.
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?
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-dept comments that gets you impressed and the only way you can get in touch with him is to actually copy his name and pop 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.
Few Blog Commenting Tips to help you Comment Effectively on Blogs
When you plan on doing blog commenting for any purpose there are few tips to help you succeed
- Make sure you try to always read the post, so you can have what to say in the comment section
- Do not try to leave links in the comments field, wordpress already provide 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.

You may need a tool to help you easily filter which blogs accept comments and so am recommending DropmyLink.
DML would help you find sites to comment on easily without having to use search strings. Though search strings work too. But dropmylink would save you sometime.

Blog Commenting for backlinks definitely have some good impact on your blog’s rankings if done on authority sites however you should know that all your comments may not be indexed by google especially if done on blogs that don’t get crawled by google quickly.
That’s why I recommend One Hour Indexing for indexing all of your backlinks within an hour or less.
I definitely recommend you comment on blogs to build relationship 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 blog commenting and its benefits.
