One thing I like about getting links from blog commenting is that it doesn’t just supply a backlink to your website. It also supplies traffic.
The reason? People sometimes click links in the comments of posts.
In this tutorial I am going to take you through finding places to leave a blog comment, the do’s and don’ts of blog commenting and how to get your comments approved.
First off, what exactly is blog commenting?
It’s simple leaving relevant comments based on relevant niche blogs or relevant topics.
Easy enough, right?
Let me give you an example. Let’s say you have a niche site about owning rabbits. Let’s say you find a post on a similar blog that covers a great way to feed rabbits so that they do not over eat.
With me so far?
Now on this particular blog post you’ll find a comments section down on the bottom by scrolling down. You decide to give the blog owner some praise for a well written post.
You could leave a comment that adds to the discussion and at the same time you can include your link. Notice I bring up, that your comment should add to the discussion! Don’t SPAM them, they will not approve your comment.
That’s probably the best advice I can give you. Most people do not get their comments approved because they are just spamming their link rather than adding to a meaningful discussion.
Don’t worry I’ll demonstrate this:
Here is an example of getting involved in the discussion.
I am going to demo a comment I posted up at Aweber’s Blog. This particular comment was on an article they wrote about a week after I put up my own article about Google’s impact on email marketing.
Here’s what I wrote. Notice how I contribute to the subject rather than self promotion.
Notice how I add my insight to help contribute to what the article is all about? I do this intentionally. Not only can I help other people in my area of expertise but I can also get a nice backlink from them for making a real and sincere comment.
Notice I also just use my name instead of something like “make money online” or a similar spammy keyword phrase?
This will all but guarantee an approval for your comment.
By the way, you can view their original post here to see why I added what I did.
Let me show you the kind of crap that gets deleted.
This is the type of message I get on several of my blogs, constantly. It doesn’t matter what the topic is, this is the junk people put in.
Notice how it doesn’t add to the conversation? Notice how it has nothing of value for my readers? Notice how the name slot is filled with a spammy set of keywords?
Even if this was a legit comment, I’d never approve it. Neither would most people.
