Importance of Blog Commenting

Importance of Blog Commenting

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.

1. Traffic

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:

comment form

Once you submit the comment, it looks like this:

comment example

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.

3. Backlinks

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.

Conclusion

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.

    • Hi Saurabh,

      Thank you for stopping by my blog post and leaving such a nice comment as I really do appreciate that.

      Blog commenting is a great way to get others back to your site. You need to get CommentLuv for your website. It is a great tool to have because it shows your last post you wrote at the end of your comment. That is the free version. The paid version lets you pick the blog post from your last ten posts that you want others to comment on. It is a very cool tool to have.

      Thank you so much for sharing, Saurabh and you have an awesome night and week.

  3. Hey Linda,

    Well you know how much I do love blog commenting and for all the reasons you mentioned above.

    I love the interaction myself, learning new things, meeting new people and forming new friendships. It also can really help you be seen when you leave genuine, helpful and informative comments. We all have something to add to the conversation I believe even if it’s just our own experiences.

    We all started somewhere right and what we share in a comment might help someone else as well. Plus if that person has CommentLuv like you pointed out, our posts will be seen and hopefully it will catch some bloggers eyes and they’ll want to come over and see what we have. It’s a win/win situation in my book.

    Thank you for the mention, surprised to see that but always appreciated. Nice to be lumped with Carol, she’s awesome as well.

    Great advice Linda and I’m off to share it with my friends. Hope you’re having a wonderful day and you enjoy your week okay.

      I don’t know how you keep up with it all. You have a terrific memory. We all do have something to share with our readers through our hopes, experiences and strengths. By commenting, hopefully we will get them to come to our blogs for a visit.

      CommentLuv is one of the best tools out there. You are so right, It’s a win/win situation for everyone in my book too. I mentioned you because you are the best at commenting out there and the next time I use your name, I will ask permission.

      You have an awesome night and rest of the week!

    I love your post about blog commenting. I have had the chance to meet so many cool and interesting people through commenting. I also learn a lot about a person by the comment they leave.
    I always appreciate when someone adds to the conversation with their insights about a particular topics or even disagrees with me. It gives me another point of view.
    You obviously know the importance of blog commenting and how to do it the right way. How do you discourage those who leave comments like “Great post. Love it.” or “Cool tips. Thanks.”

    It’s obvious that they didn’t bother reading the post that I took time to write! The ultimate insult.

    I have a few of those who are maybe just looking for a backlink. I may put a blog comment policy on my website. What are your thoughts about it?

      Thank you for leaving such a wonderful comment on my blog post as I really do appreciate it. It is so cool to meet such interesting people through blog commenting. Now, I have met you and am happy I did.

      As for people who leave comments like great post, love it or cool tips, thanks, get spammed. I don’t even see those types of comments any more. My web designer put something on my site to prevent those kind of comments. They don’t read your posts they just want to get their link on your post. You don’t need those types of comments on your blog post. I will ask my designer what plugin he used for spam and get back to you on this matter.

    Great post, indeed! 🙂

    I completely agree with you. Blog commenting will bring many benefits for us. I still remember when my early days I entered blogosphere, no one knows who I am. It was a bit sad. 😆

    But, I learned from a lot of people and found that blog commenting is important for bloggers. So, I started doing it. 😉

    As expected, I get traffic, friends and followers at the same times. I get a lot of followers on Twitter, I even believe I was the only person who has a lot of foreign followers than other people in my city. I am grateful for that. 😀

    Yes, we will learn a lot from reading other articles. I like the way you say that blog commenting will clear your doubts for free. I love it. 😉

    Thanks for sharing this with us, Linda.
    Keep up the hard work. Have a great day for you!

  8. Great post Linda,
    Blog commenting is really one of the best and most effective means of connecting and building solid relationships with fellow bloggers if done well.

    However just like every other thing, if you really want to be getting good results from your comments, its important to always have a goal in mind while commenting and all the comments you will be writing should gear towards you achieving that goal of yours.

    Finally, its very important that every blogger take blog commenting very serious because i can really open doors.

  9. Hi Linda,

    My personal favorite is “building relationships” as you mentioned. Regardless of being a seasoned blogger or a newbie getting to know the world and vice versa, you have to talk with the audience.

    People only keep coming back when they feel connected to you at a personal level regardless all the backlinks left behind by a comment.

    There is no better backlink than the “connection with the heart” 😉

  11. Hi Linda,

    Great post here.

    Interestingly enough, I never started paying attention to blog commenting until I met Adrienne. And it was just through engagement with her that I really saw the true potential of blog commenting.

    It’s something I do from time to time, but with so many other projects I’m working on, I have to limit myself to a set amount of hours towards it. Lately, I dedicate 5 hours a week towards it and that it. Could I do more? Sure. But I have things like Kindle book and courses and other projects that take up my time too .. and there’s only so many hours each day.

    But, I do agree that blog commenting is good and it can help achieve all of those things you mentioned. Especially building relationships.

    Great post.

    • Hi Andrew,

      Thank you for visiting my blog post and leaving such an awesome comment. I really do appreciate that.

      I was the same way. I didn’t know anything about blog commenting till I met Adrienne and she helped me with what blog commenting was all about and how to use it as a marketing tool. She taught me how to build relationships and to help others without expecting anything in return.

      Blog commenting takes a lot of time. Being consistent as you are doing is the key to success. 5 hours a week is great. You’re setting goals and following through with them and that is tremendous. It’s the only way we will succeed.

      Thank you for sharing, Andrew and you have a wonderful weekend!

  12. Hey Linda,

    I’ve come to know the benefits of blog commenting quite well over the years! You have listed the reasons why I find it very beneficial for myself and I know it will be to others. It may be tedious to some, but it well help anyone grow their brand and their blog.

    I can remember when I wasn’t getting that much traffic at all. As a matter of fact, I was getting under 1,000 visitors a month. Just by commenting on one more blog a week, and commenting on more blogs with an alexa of under 100,000, I saw my traffic increase over 1,000 visitors/month.

    Also I started to learn more and above all build credibility! I started to get more offers as far as being included in roundup posts and doing guest posts which I think everyone should take advantage of.

    So yes, blog commenting should never be ignored in my opinion. Networking is key in building a blog or business, and this is the way to do it!

    Thanks for the share Linda! Have a great weekend!

She took me under her wing and helped me learn about blog commenting and how important it is in building relationships with others. I absolutely love her.

      I see a huge difference in generating traffic through blog commenting. Not as much as yours, but it’s growing. It is helping me build my brand and my blog, just like you said.

      I have seen some of your guest posts and great roundup posts and you’re right about how it builds credibility. I will take advantage of this when the time comes. People are actually coming to me for help. I am so excited by this. It just takes time and time is what I have. I am retired now.

  13. Hey Linda,

    Absolutely love blog commenting, one of my favorite things to do when am online.

    Traffic is surely the primary reason to do blog commenting and being the 1st commentator can increase the traffic by manifolds.

    I love connecting with new bloggers and try to build a stronger connection with those whom I know. I actively keep looking for new blogs were I can comment and network. Sites like Kingged, bizsugar etc. helps a lot in this aspect.

    Blog commenting does improve visibility and other bloggers come to know about our blog when we leave comments on other active blogs. This is where the comment quality matters most as a barely passable 2 liner comment won’t add any reputation to the commentator, nor will others take much notice.

    thanks,

      I too enjoy meeting new bloggers. Some of them have a lot of questions that we can help them with and make them feel more comfortable with blogging. I use Kingged and have to become more active in Bizsugar.

    Really informative Blog post on commenting. Beautifully laid out content inter-spaced with perfectly edited images. Wow! terrific.

    I love the idea that I get more traffic to my Blogsite when I leave comments. To trigger that sort of visitors I believe that the comment I leave behind must be contain value add content itself, written in an engaging way.

    The comment should make people curious and what to know more about – Me – the commenter. That’s when I’ve discovered inbound traffic flows.

    Yes, much better than the inbound traffic is the relationships I’ve built over the years with other Bloggers.

    That’s my real fun part. I’ve got to know them as people. I’ve got to know who their wife and children were. Very occasionally, when I’ve had the chance to travel to their country I’ve had one or two actual meetups and it was great fun.

    Actually, once a year I travel abroad from India, and whenever possible I try and meet a Blogger or three in my country of destination. I’ve made some terrific friends over the years.

Sherman Smith posted it on Google+ and Glenn Shepherd put it on his roundup post. I feel like I went to the moon and back. I think it’s time to not call myself a newbie anymore. I am so amazed and feel such gratitude towards both of them. I get most of my traffic from blog commenting.

      We meet new people everyday through our blog posts and in the comments, we get to know, like and trust each other. I am 63 years old and love blog commenting and I enjoy meeting new people like you, Ivan. Building relationships with others is so important, like you said and I am building those relationships one at a time. I am meeting the coolest people Online. Don’t you just love it.

      It’s nice that you get to travel abroad and meet some of your commentators. I used to do a lot of traveling. About ten years ago, I went to Paris and loved it. The culture and the people were wonderful. I want to travel to India one day. My oldest sister has been there three times for spiritual reasons and she loves it there. I have nine brothers and sisters. My oldest brother died two years ago from cancer and I really do miss him.

Blog commenting does not bring in an ridiculous amount of traffic, but it can help you bring in a small portion, but every new person you get to come to your website is another opportunity to make money and gain a client. I have been reading and commenting on blogs for quite some time now and I can not tell you how much I have learned for just reading. Just reading and gaining new information everyday has helped my website dramatically. I loved your article.

    Blog commenting is the main source to connect with new people. When it comes to build connections with bloggers then blog commenting plays an important role. When I entered in the field of blogging then I was not aware about blog commenting and all. After some time when I came to meet Adrienne and Harleena then it was all clear.
    Blog commenting increases traffic at your blog.

    • Hi Omar,

      Thank you for visiting my blog post and leaving such a nice comment as I really do appreciate that.

      Blog commenting is all about leaving value driven comments and creating new friendships with our commentators. We all get to know, like and trust each other. It’s all about people meeting people, some we will learn to love and others we wont. It requires a lot of time but is well worth it. The more blog posts we write and comments we make, the more we improve our writing skills.

      Thank you for sharing, Omar and you have an awesome day and weekend ahead!

  20. Hi Linda,
    I found this informative post’s notification today at kingged.com and thus this visit here for the first time. Nice to meet you;
    Comments are an integral part of blogging!

    Yes, as someone said, i too started my blogging journey by commenting on others pages, and only after doing this for some years only i started blogging. In my initial time of internet activity i started reading a lot of stuff and after finishing reading i will have something to say about it and out rightly i post my opinion, in many cases i got brick bats and and in several other cases i got applauds!

    The very place we are now in ie Kingged is one of the best example for
    comments and commentotors paradise!! I say paradise since this platform gives as much as importance to its members comments! Of course there are few cases where people just say Excellent, goog , great, amazing and yet another common word people use for everything ie ‘Awesome” these types of comments should be avoided and it will not give much meaning to the post or to its writers! Kingged dot com is very strict on this but in some other communities such one word or one line comments are appreciated and welcomed, which is not a good trend at all.

    If a person read our post fully he will surely have something to say but in other cases they just leave one word comment and go!

    I am so glad to read such a lot of information on blog commenting and its value in your content.

    Nice to meet you

    Keep sharing

    Have a good day

    • Hi Phillip,

      Thank you for visiting my blog post and leaving such a wonderful comment as I really do appreciate it. I love Kingged and it is a great community and one of the best out there. I am meeting some of the most amazing people.

      By blog commenting, we get to know, like and trust each other and it’s all about people meeting people. Some will love us and some won’t. It’s that simple. Nice to meet you too Phillip and you certainly are allowed to voice your opinion.

      We post and comment to give value to others. I want to help as many people as I can and I write my posts in such a manner so everyone can understand. That is my motivation. I am a spiritual person and I believe in the golden rule.

      I have come to love blog commenting and think that if someone takes the time to comment on a persons post then we return the favor by commenting on theirs. I don’t believe in one liners either and on my blog they go right to spam. The spammers are getting smarter, they now use CommentLuv on their spammy remarks. This is a new trick they are using and it is working but you can tell by what they share and spam them immediately.

      Its been a pleasure to meet you Phillip and thank you for sharing.

      You have a wonderful night and weekend ahead!

  21. Thanks for the post

    Blog comments can help with the search engine optimization of your website by seriously improving your ranking within the major search engines. Where sometimes webmasters running traditional websites complain about being in the Google Sandbox for months, bloggers often report seeing their results in search engine results just a few days after they activate their blogs and start posting entries.

    • Hi Manisha,

      Thank you for stopping by my post and leaving a nice comment. I really do appreciate it.

      Blog comments can help search engine optimization as long as we put the keywords in naturally. I am not having any problems with SEO and am glad about that. I am not in the Google Sandbox, thank God. I will take your advice and follow my own guidelines from an article I previously wrote on SEO.

      Thank you for sharing Manisha and you have a wonderful weekend!

  22. Hi Linda

    Blog commenting has become one of the most effective ways to:

    a) Do off-page SEP

    b) Build relationship with fellow bloggers

    c) Make influencers notice you

    d) Participate in informative debates on your niche topics

    e) Make people heard your voice

    f) Practice to improve your writing skills

    g) Remain the part of your blogging niche community

    h) Create your own blogging community

    Therefore one must focus on doing this activity regularly and should not do this just do formality. One needs to comment where he feels it is must to comment otherwise he should have all the liberty to go without commenting.

    Thanks a lot for sharing such wonderful post on showing importance of blog commenting.

    Have a great weekend ahead.

    • Hi Mi Muba,

      Thank you for stopping by my blog post and leaving such a great comment. I really do appreciate that.

      Building relationships with other bloggers is one of the best methods to use. We want people to know, like and trust us and in return we do the same. Some people are just not everyone’s cup of tea. It is all about people meeting people and some we love and some we don’t. If we keep writing good posts and do things to get the influencers attention we are on our way to providing our audience with the very best content. Once we have their attention, we don’t want to loose them.

      Your list is a very valuable tool to use while blog commenting. We must be consistent and practice them on a daily basis, not allowing problems to get in our way, while achieving our goals. So, we do need to be clear with our message and keep moving forward.

      Thank you for sharing Mi Muba and you have a wonderful weekend!

  23. Hi Linda,
    I completely agree with your 5 points and of course, point #2 (Building Relationships) completely blows it out.

    The more relationships we create, the more we can get links and traffic from those friends. My blog is where it is today because of blog commenting and I highly recommend it 😉

    Hope you are having a wonderful weekend

    • Hi Enstine,

      Thank you for stopping by my blog post and leaving such an awesome comment. You are way ahead of me with blogging but I am learning as fast as I can. Building relationships is the most important part of blogging. I am meeting the coolest people on the face of the planet and learning so much from people like you.

      The more relationships we build the more our businesses grows and I too know it is from blog commenting. I am taking your advice seriously.

      Thank you for sharing, Enstine and you have a wonderful weekend!

  24. Hi Linda

    Thanks for your helpful and instructive post on blog commenting

    As a newbie to blog commenting I am learning every day how helpful it is and already I can the tiny shoots of connectivity coming from blogging mavens like Adrienne Smith.

    I really like your last point: Establish Credibility and Improve Visibility. It sure does make sense to be commenting on many blogs. Sooner or later people start to notice you, they see you’re a serious player, and will then check you out.

    I get it!

    Thanks again

    • Hi Kim,

      Thank you for leaving such a nice comment. I really do appreciate that. As a newbie, try to comment on five blog posts a day. Your hanging out withe the best blogger on the face of this planet. No matter what you do, read Adrienne’s blog every Monday!

      In time you will establish credibility and you will be amazed at the traffic you will receive. Be patient and consistent. Blog at least once a week and on the same day of the week. People will begin to look for your post on the day you pick each week. You are on the right track.

      Thank you for sharing, Kim and you have an awesome day and weekend ahead!

  25. Thanks for sharing another extremely helpful &
    well written post Linda!

    And for the record, while you may be still fairly new to blogging you
    are well beyond newbie status!LOL!

    I love the way you demonstrate your expertise through
    your various images and red arrows etc!

    You definitely need to be getting paid to your share proven expertise
    with some real, confused beginners!

    Seriously, you need to put together (either) a free
    60 to 90 minute “How to” webinar, where you offer paid
    one on one coaching/consulting on the back end!

    And teach real newbies two or three of the proven fundamentals,
    of successful online marketing,

    Because you have clearly mastered them Linda!

    And they can certainly learn a ton from you about “how” things
    really work online!

    Or maybe “test” creating a the X most common online marketing mistakes
    most beginners make! (And “how to” correct or avoid them!)
    free special report and a video or Podcast series etc.

    Seriously, I’ll bet the newbie beginners and Intermediates
    that are smart enough to consistently follow you, would love
    have you take them by the hand and guide them through the online
    waters!LOL!

    I hope you’ll seriously consider doing so, because you are natural teacher!

    • Hi Mark,

      Always nice to see you here and I really do appreciate your comment.

      Thank you for all the wonderful things you shared about me and that I should be teaching. This week for the first time I was asked to do two guest postings. I still feel like I am new. I will begin doing them in 2016 when I will be ready. I am grateful for your confidence in me.

      Your doing a heck of a lot of new things with your blog too. Maybe we should make a pact that 2016 is going to be the year for even more growth. Replying to comments on at least 5 blog posts a day from Monday to Friday and take the weekends off. Sounds like a great plan and I learned that from Adrienne Smith. I am always trying to reply on the commentLuv links and I’m catching up today and it’s a weekend. By 2016 I will have it under control and so will you. I have a lot of confidence in you.

      Thank you for sharing, Mark and you have an awesome weekend.
