Getting More Blog Comments – That Actually Will Get You More Web Traffic

Making Your Blog Comments Effective For Marketing

I check my analytic s all the time. It always amazes me how much traffic I can pull from commenting on other peoples blogs. With all the animal updates google likes to give us. Many bloggers have been more cautious with blog comments.

I can’t blame them I literally get thousands of spam comments every month. I also get lots of those weird comments, you know the ones they kinda go like this:

“Great idea, thanks for the tip I am going to have to use that, I learned so much thank you”

Let’s be honest here:

First nobody is going to care about your blog comments unless you engage the writer or engage another comment with a meaningful opinion. Seriously you don’t have to agree with me to get your comment on my blog. You simply need to actually read what I write or read what someone else commented and take part in the conversation.

Blog Comments don’t = Higher Search Engine Rankings

Maybe blog comments do increase your search engine rankings. But if that is the case your comments needs to be on blogs that are within the same niche that you are in to get any meaningful link juice.

SEO isn’t the power of a blog comment. The magic is in the comment itself. You need to really step back and look at the other commentors and also take in the bloggers blog.

The better you can grab a persons attention with your statement the more people that will visit you. I see it all the time on my own stuff. I drop a comment somewhere and keep getting traffic from that comment for months.

The reason is because I don’t write crappy comments. I write thoughtful, insightful and sometimes heart felt comments. The type of comments that compels a person to click on my name.

I know I am going to get some people biting my head off for saying this but I think it needs to be said. Blog comments are only good for your business if they can actually get you traffic.

Get out of your mind that you need lots of backlinks to make money or get more traffic because it’s simply not true. What you need is content that people want. The rest will happen on it’s own.

Blog Comments Is The Doorway Into Another Traffic Stream

Realize that the webmaster of whatever blog you are visiting works very hard to keep traffic coming to their site. If you do your part engage the author, write good comments that are keyword rich then you will be rewarded with more traffic.

If you are low on advertising budget and you want to drive more traffic to your stuff here are some do and don’ts when using blog comments for you

  • Don’t use landing pages in your url’s I don’t know any bloggers that like to link to other peoples landing pages
  • Do write thoughtful comments, spend 5 to 10 minutes writing your comments
  • Don’t comment without your avatar
  • Do use gravatar

And please, please don’t outsource blog commenting. Write your own comments. Nobody will represent you as well as you.

Happy New Years!

Creating A Responsive Blog Community That Will Get You Results.

There really are only 2 ways to make money online. Either you are going to invest money in advertising your business Or you are going to work all the different free marketing methods available to you.

Personally I have always favored spending money, rather than spending the extra time, however I do know what it is like to try and make money online without having a marketing budget to work with.

When I first got started in all this online marketing stuff times where different. You could easily get quality back links just by visiting other blogs. You could use Google Ad Words and just direct link your affiliate link.

A lot sure has changed in 8 years. Today you have a much more difficult time getting the one thing we all need to make money on the internet. That is web traffic. I have been talking about web traffic since around 2005.

It still is the most important variable to making money on the internet.  With that said I am going to share with you what I think is the most mis understood aspect of  blogging. That is creating a responsive community. [Read more…]

Do This One Thing And Become The Blogger You Where Meant To Be

Ever notice how some people have amazingly successful blogs? Not just anyone can be a good blogger.  If you are one of those people that don’t like writing but where told or taught you should blog you should stop blogging right now.

I have been blogging since 2006. There is more than the allure of making money that drives me to blog. Fact of the matter is I simply enjoy writing about stuff. Even if I wasn’t doing business online I would still more than likely blog about something or another.

I want to help you today, more specifically I want to help you right now!

Decide right now that you are going to blog and keep blogging even when you don’t have anything to blog about. The reason why is because it will more than likely take hundreds if not thousands of post before you become a better writer.

I am not talking about grammer or spelling or anything of the sort. I am talking about developing the ability to become fluid with your thoughts.  Your success as a blogger will only come through consistency over time.

Many of today’s successful bloggers weren’t so successful when the started. They had no traffic, went around and commented and shared peoples stuff. They developed real relationships with other bloggers.  One thing all these bloggers have in common is they have consistently blogged for years.

They all have different approaches, the end results are always the same. If you decide here and now that you are going to blog consistently and you aren’t going to ever stop. Your consistent actions over time will be your strongest asset.

For starters….

Search engines love it when you actually stick around for a few years. They start to rank you higher simply because you been around. People start to realize your serious because they see you consistent. They also know there is a good chance you are going to share something new with them.

Good bloggers love to share ideas and thoughts.

In closing,

Good blogging is simply a matter of staying consistent over time. Eventually your writing will pay off for you. The most important thing to keep in mind is truly with all your heart love to write. If you don’t and your just blogging because someone told you it was a good idea. Stop! There are lots of ways to earn money online. Blogging is only one vehicle and it’s really not for everyone.
