Commenting on Blogs..
You may think whether commenting on other’s blog has to be taken under consideration. You will get the answer if you know why you are commenting. Normally people comment on other blogs inorder to get notified, or to promote the link or website they attach along with their comment. You can find a number of comments listed under a good blog. So, your comment has to stand out of others, right? Under this post, we will come across some points which I believe, will surely help you.
As a part of SEO (Search Engine Optimization), I’d been following normal or ‘traditional’ “Nice post” strategies while commenting on other blogs. This might be a cordial or formal style of commenting. But, there are chances of your comment getting un-noticed by others. Also you may find a large variety of this “Nice post” strategy.
But, if you want to post nice comments, the first thing you have to do is to read the blog. Thinking about wastage of time, I had commented on some blogs without even reading it. This is surely not a good practice. I can surely say without reading a blog, whether interesting or not, you can never comment on it sincerely. I can’t say as tips, but these are my suggestions for you on how to do good commenting on blogs. It may take some time, but you will surely get a good result.
Disagree if you cant agree!!
While you read comments on other blogs, you may notice some comments that disagree with the blog. We will automatically let us to read that comment. Why? Because these comments stand out of other normal comments I mentioned before. Disagreeing posts need not be without respect or rude. But remind, saying you disagree without pointing out the exact reason is worthless. So, you have to explain why you disagree with the author.
Add a little humor.
Don’t feel frightened to post comments with appropriate humor content. Surely it will make people to go through your comment at least twice. Since normal comments are serious, your comment will surely give a cool look. You don’t want to search comic books to make people ‘LOL’, just be frank.
First impression is the best impression
First impression is the best impression!! So, create a sharp and pointed opening line. This will surely draw people’s attention. If you are successful in building a witty and powerful opening line, surely one will read your comment without skipping.
Add your piece of information.
You have read many articles like “10 ways to get more Facebook likes”, right? Why cant you suggest a 11th way? People who read such a blog will surely read your comment as they are interested in increasing their Facebook likes. Obviously, they will find your suggestion hopefully useful.
Make the author to visit your website.
Impressing the author is another trick. Just make a feel to the author that you are familiar with their works. If possible, make a comment on the Portfolio, positive or negative. You are even getting a chance of the author visiting your website!!! Yea, its true.. If you like to provide any suggestions, visit our Portfolio.
Search your category.
Searching for highly relevant blog posts will be much beneficial. You may use the blog’s search function to find blog posts where you can expose your knowledge.
Use website name.
While filling the comment form, people normally put their website’s link in their name. I prefer you website name to your name. You may be little confused. But, try this. A catchy, keyword-focused name will surely encourage people to click on your link. Even the author himself may visit your website.
Make it fast.
Remember, no one wishes to read a novel. So, keep it short and simple!! Point out your points quickly.
Why can’t you comment on other comments??
Making meaningful conversation with other commentors will draw attention to your website. It will give a chance not only to increase your visibility, but also to show off your knowledge.
