Blog commenting is a serious issue in the blogging. I am blogging since last 6 months and is running 5 blogs with my college friend Shitij Jain. We always used to compete each other in this blogging. We used to give challenges to each other every time. And yes, I usually wins!!
We started blogging seriously since last 4 months when we came to know about many bloggers like Amit Agarwal, Amit Bhawani, Harsh Agrawal and many more. In the starting of this profession, I was not able to understand the process of commenting on blogs. But one day I came to know about the word “backlinks”. I was confused about this term. Then I asked one of teachers in this blogging profession about backlinks who is Mr. Saurabh Rai. I used to ask each and every query from him instead of searching it on Google.
He told me that backlink is a path through which a person comes to your site with a referral. I was so confused that who will refer my site on his or her blog.. ??
Then he told me that commenting on other blogs can help you in building backlinks through which I can gain lot of things. At that time I always find it difficult to read someone’s article and comment on it with relevant advises. It was so boring until I started reading blog of Harsh Agrawal. I was so amazed with his blog. I get all the answers in his blog whether it is about WordPress, Blogging, Monetize your blog or the killer Search Engine Optimization tactics. This was something that I liked it.
Soon after 20-25 days, I get familiar with many of the blogs which help me to gain something and I started commenting on the blogs with a positive comment. What I gained through blog commenting is :
Generate Free Backlinks :
Commenting on a blog help me generating free backlinks without spending any money on some SEO solutions which says – “Get 1000 backlinks instantly in just $9.99″. This things are not good for the natural SEO tactics. One day, all these things will spoil your blog and you will be crying on your decision. Though I have not tried these services and I will also tell you not to spend your money and time on these services. May be these services fetch you instant backlinks but Google Panda Algorithm is against it.
Blog Commenting is the safest method of generating free backlinks just by throwing a comment on blogs. Backlinks are necessary for the site popularity. When you will gain some popularity, you will get some good rankings in Google and traffic will flow to your site.
Improve PageRank of your blog :
This is the major factor why Blog commenting is necessary for you and your blog. As I told you in the last point that this will generate free backlinks to your blog. Now I will tell you what is PageRank ??
PageRank is a link analysis algorithm named after Larry Page which is used by Google Search Engine, that provides a particular rank to a website when it gains some popularity. This rank is from 0 to 10. If your blog is having 4 or 5 PageRank then you will surely get good rankings in Google. Let me tell you one more interesting thing – The PageRank of Google is 10. It is totally dependent on how popular your blog is ??
More you have backlinks, then more your blog is popular, and more you will have better PageRank which will fetch you good search engine rankings in Google. But keep one thing in mind, that if you comment on popular blogs your popularity will increase rapidly.
Drive more traffic to your blog :
When you comment on a particular blog, you must keep 3 things in mind to gain traffic for your blog -
# Always try to comment on a blog which has better traffic and a good PageRank.
# Try to be the first person to comment on a post written by the author.
# Always add more value to comments for better traffic.
If you do not understand on how to add more value to comments, I will elaborate with an example – Bloggers always needs more comments on their blog and also if the comment is positive, then it will surely make him or her happy. Instead of commenting simple like “nice post” or “thanks for the info”, try to write some extra through which your comment gets noticeable by people coming to that post. First person always gets an advantage in driving more traffic if his comment is adding some value to the post. Through this way, you can get much traffic than your expectation.
Get familiar with other bloggers :
Once you started commenting on a particular blog regularly while adding some value to it. Your comment will get noticeable by the blogger and blogger will start replying to your comment every time you comments on his blog. This will create a bonding between you and the blogger. Through this way, you can get connected via Social Networking Sites and thus can share your problems through this if you have any.
