Do you want to make money with your blog? Do you need to drive more traffic to your site for free? Blog commenting is an effective way to drive traffic to your site for free and it will promote your site’s rankings. The following article will show you common blog commenting mistakes that you must avoid. There are different strategies when it comes to blog commenting. Some strategies can actually affect your SEO efforts negatively.
Things to Avoid When Blog Commenting
Before commenting on a blog, read each sites commenting policies, if they have any. Some sites will not allow you to post your links in the comments. Do not use any keywords in your name, unless you are authorized to do so, or if the site uses commenting applications such as CommentLuv or KeywordLuv.
Do not copy and paste your comments
Don’t leave messages like: “Love the post”, “Thanks for the tips” or “Awesome Advice” or any type of short post that brings no value to the blog. Such a message is basically just saying, “I didn’t even read your post, I just need you for a backlink.”
Do not just try to promote your site
And never try to pitch your products or services, or try to get people to join your mailing list. There are other ways to go about advertising your products and services. And remember not to leave your links to your site in the comment section. Doing this will get your comments rejected and deleted on most commenting sites.
Don’t Comment Just For the Fun of It
Do not make the mistake of being a casual commenter. Leave unique, quality comment and bring some insight to the subject being discussed. Be sure to actually read the post and some of the comments others have made before you leave your comment.
Don’t Go Off Topic
A common mistake made by commenters is that they change the subject and comment on unrelated things. Be sure your comments are relevant and useful to the readers and stay within the subject of the previous thread of comments.
Don’t Get in Too Late
You don’t want to be the 279th person to comment. Comment in blogs that either have no posts or just a few recent posts. By being the first to post a good and relevant comment on a site you will get a lot more traffic back to your site when they click your link. But, if your comment gets buried by all the other comments you will not get the results you were looking for.
Blog commenting is a great way to increase your exposure, drive traffic to your site, increase sales and increase your SEO ranking. So it is important that you avoid these common blog commenting mistakes.
