When you write a comment after reading a blog post, it is called blog commenting. Since I have joined the blogosphere, I have learned so many things, but the most enjoyable thing I have learned is blog commenting.
There are so many benefits you get if you do blog commenting on different blogs on a regular basis. As so many benefits are attached to it, it has a great importance in the world of blogging.
Through this blog post, I am going to explore the benefits you get from blog commenting so that you will able to understand it’s importance.
Traffic is the first thing every blogger wants because they need people to read their content. If there is no traffic on the blog, you might not be able to keep the blog running because sooner or later you must want to cash out your efforts, right? And that is possible only when you have a good amount of traffic on your blog.
When you comment on a blog, your blog link goes with the comment, and thus you get a few hits from the people who want to check out your content.
Here is a basic comment form looks like:
Once you submit the comment, it looks like this:
Look at the comment above which I have published recently on a blog. You can see my latest post link was fetched by Commentluv plugin installed on that blog [not all blogs use commentluv], and my name is also hyperlinked.
Now, if someone comes to that page, sees my comment and get interested in my comment luv link as the title shows there, then he will click to visit my blog post.
And I will get one visit. In this ways if you publish ten comments a day, you may generate more than ten hits or more per day. It depends on those blogs’ visitors as well, if more people are interested in your post link, they will visit you.
Currently I am getting around 30 visitors a day from blogs where I have commented, and I believe that it will be doubled soon as I will be reaching to more blogs . Additionally, the number of blog comments was tripled on my blog as compared to earlier.
2. Building Relationships
The best thing of blog commenting is you come to know about new people in your niche, and when you regularly read and comment on their blogs, they start noticing you. Now, they start coming to your blog to read and comment.
Gradually you become friends with them, and that is the beginning of a healthy relationship.
Mind it that the relationships are imperative in blogging.
Blog commenting is not an effective way of link building because most of the blogs offer Nofollow link, but there are many blogs that provide dofollow links as well. So when you comment on those blogs, you get backlinks to your blog that help in search rankings too.
4. Learning new things every day
To post a comment you need to read blog posts thoroughly. When you read, you learn something new, right?
I am taking my example here; I am still a newbie but since I have started blogging, I have started reading multiple blog posts every day. Reading is very important for commenting because until you don’t understand the content, it’s tough to write a good comment. This way, I am able to learn so many new things like traffic generation, social media marketing, Internet marketing, WordPress, Plugins, etc. Few months ago I was unaware of these terms, but now I am familiar with these. This all happened because I started reading blog posts to comment on them.
So blog commenting helps you learn new things every day.
5. Clear your doubts for FREE
As I said in the #3 point that you learn so many things by reading the articles, but at times you find problem understanding some topics. In that situation, you may ask your questions via comments that might be later answered by the author.
Remember? in the school days, a home tutor comes to your home to teach you, and you could ask him the problems you face. He must have solved all the problems but in return he used to charge a monthly fee for all this, right?
But when you start learning by blog commenting, you learn for free. Just ask questions in the comments, and get answers.
6. Establish Credibility and Improve visibility
Commenting doesn’t mean just to write a few words or 1-2 lines, and submit rather it means to share your views or ask questions to start a conversation in the comment area.
If you are writing better comments, you will notice that your credibility is getting established gradually. You become a good guy in people’s eyes. More people start trusting you.
Additionally, when you read and comment everywhere, your visibility improves a lot. I have examples of Adrienne Smith and Carol Amato whose comments I can find on all the blogs I visit nowadays.
To be honest, I came to know about them via blog commenting.
Blog commenting is imperative if you want to become a credible blogger of the blogosphere. To me, it’s the second most important task when it comes to blogging. I do it every day, and I enjoy doing it.
You have just come to know the six benefits blog commenting offers, and that is why blog commenting has a great importance in the blogging world.
