Become a Commenting Rockstar with My 7 Tips!
Maybe, you’re already familiar with the power of Blog Commenting. But, if you’re not. Then, you’ve to know. Most folks think that commenting will gain them backlinks, let me aware them all, most times it doesn’t give you any dofollow backlink as by default wordpress blogs are nofollow. There are dofollow blogs too, but not so much where you can comment and gain a backlink.
Though, you don’t get backlinks from most, but there are some other Amazing benefits commenting GIVES with the exception of backlinks! Here they are;
- Lots of Traffic, Some Exposure
- Interaction with other fellow-bloggers
- Don’t hesitate, and ask at least one question to the author of post, that you’re commenting on (absolutely helpful to gain more knowledge, and get rid of doubts about various things)
- Try to answer others question, this will help you to appear on top commentators widget (if available) and also helps you to be a part of debate which is completely filled with knowledge
- Last (probably), FAME! If, you’ll help then more…
You’ve seen, what I’m getting and trying to get still. What are my goals I want to achieve through this simple work?
Here they’re listed already above, I’m getting most out of that list and trying to maximize benefits. But How that’s possible?Question arises, Right?
Well, I know the answer! and want to share it with you all my friends.
Here Answer is! Commenting in the Best Way, will let you get most out of the benefits I mentioned above. And, here I’ll share my own tips that I think can make anyone the Commenting Rockstar (in fact, I don’t guarantee but I can say, that it works if used properly)
Finally, here are my tips
Now, come to the main point that I want you to know. Believe me you can be a rockstar commentator, if tips are used properly.
#1. Never! ‘Great Post, Thanks for Sharing!’
We’ve been getting lots of comments with the text Great Post, Thanks for Sharing and other rubbish words, that really don’t add value and seems to be written just for the sake of one more comment today! huh, but they don’t get it approved from me (at least). I guess, same would be happening to their other rubbish comments, left on various blogs. Such commentators are then, appeared as devil in the blogosphere. Believe me or not, such bullshit commentators are just losing their respect and brand, and will be no longer appeared!
For them I can only say stop their stupid comments, and give comments that add value and are descriptive, that can impress the author, that are worth leaving.
Final: Never leave even a single comment with ‘Great Post, Thanks for Sharing’. But try to write lengthy comments, that add value, ask questions in the comment and take time to write it. Be positive!
#2. Avoid using default Gravatar
Don’t you have your custom Gravatar? If not, then you would be using default Gravatar which I think may be the worst mistake while commenting! Yes. People don’t tend even to read comments by a person, who didn’t have set up his/her Gravatar. And this will not benefit you in any way, just because of your Avatar! You’ve to use your real photo in order to get fame, traffic and replies, otherwise you’re commenting like a BOT! . Bots never have a Gravatar, and thus your comment most times will not be appeared.
Final: Use your real and best (if you’ve) photo as your Gravatar from today. And try avoiding such a mistake in future, this can lead to call you a SPAMMER!
#3. Do reply
If you gets a question while helping others, or on your own comment from anyone. Simply, you must have to answer to satisfy/help properly (this is the most important thing, don’t forget it!) Isn’t it? OK. You’re also ready for this too, but you’ve to know in first place, whenever there’s a reply ‘in response to you’. And that’s possible only through subscribing to comments on a particular post at a blog. Hence, you’ll now get emails from the site if there’s a comment on a particular post.
Final: Always tick the check box ‘Notify me follow-up comments’ to be subscribed, and that’s it.
#4. Take it as your Job
That’s what I do. Taking Commenting on blogs with a schedule as a job, makes me do this work more better. I reserve one whole day to do this, then stop! and start writing again. This works really faster, and beautifully awesome for me, and why I wouldn’t recommend you to do this too? Of course, I will. You’ve to be responsible, and a person who concentrates on his work not on Social Profiles.
Final: Do commenting on a regular basis (I mean, schedule 2-3 days for commenting I don’t say that do commenting for all 2-3 days, but trying to say you. Do at least 2-3 days commenting in a week, if possible) Hope you understand. Think, as you’re on job. But, do post valuable comments only.
#5. Impress Others
It means, that you’ve to make your speaking tune better and even impressing. The more you’ll speak in a better way, good manner you’ll get more fame, respect and last but not least, others will be interested in checking your blog too, to see what you’re! This can be done, by observing others writing way, style and tune. If you’re quite new here, you wouldn’t be knowing how to write more and better. Then, commenting = ideas! Try it as you’re writing, try impressing others, take as you’re a tutor. I believe, better commenting = better writing. So do it.
Final: Impress others, with the knowledge you’ve. Make sure, you don’t seems to be Arrogant. And write as you talk.
#6. Add Value
People are out there with very short comments (one liner comments). They’re commenting thinking that they’ll gain backlinks through it. Even I’ve been forbidden few commentators from doing this stupid work, and asked them to add some value into your comments. But, unfortunately, they just ignore my advice. I don’t want to reveal anyone’s name here. Nor, I want to say anything more to them with the exception of one Advice that ‘Commenting for backlinks is the waste of time, brand and lots of traffic, if they’ll comment like they’re true commentators, they can do more with it’ But, they’ll neglect it too, but my work was to aware them what they’ve to do in case they want to grow.
Final: Try posting lengthy comments, never one liner (at least never on our blog). Show your love through commenting, not by doing it for backlinks..
#7. Golden Tip
Install RSS Feed Reader to your chrome browser. What it does? Simply, it notifies you whenever there’s a new post published on a specific site (that you’ve added in your list). It’ll not work automatically, but you need to add various popular blogs it for whom, you want it to notify you. Here are some my tips, that I use to decide whether a specific site should be added.
- Firstly, do check site’s posting schedule (I’d recommend you not to add a site that publishes daily, except some you’re mostly interested in reading)
- Never add sites, that publishes 2-5 posts in a single day
- Add top ones in first place (i.e. Problogger.net, CopyBlogger.com and other sites that are in the same niche, you’re in)
- Don’t add sites that you don’t read, nor interested in
