Posting comments on other relevant blog posts is a great way to establish relationship with bloggers and the audience.

By posting useful comments you can generate interest in the audience. There are chances that the audience would like to read your comment as well with every new post released by the blogger.

Undoubtedly, you are required to spend a considerable period of time in understanding the views presented in the post before posting a valid comment.

Your insightful comment will give you returns in many ways. While posting comments you can be selective in choosing blogs that implement CommentLuv for receiving comments.

The advantage with CommentLuv is that you as you post a comment, a link back to your recent blog post will be included automatically. In this way, you will be able to attract new visitors to your blog.

You can also choose blogs that follow you and you too can ensure that you follow those blogs. This process will take time, but you are on the sure path of success.

You should also interact with visitors who post comments on your blog posts. By replying comments, you will be able to recognize them and readers will be alighted to hear from you. They will get encouragement to post replies on a regular basis.

But do note that blog commenting cannot be relied as a major or a sole traffic source. You have to spend quite some time in commenting on other blogs (which means you have to read a lot of blog posts). And, you have to be consistent in doing this.

This may not work for everyone as a great traffic source. But blog commenting is surely a source of good traffic.

Call to action

It is very important that you should include text in the content that encourages users to give their feedback. You can ask your readers what kind of stuff they would be interested, how to improve your blog, what are their choice of topics, etc.

If you are offering a free email newsletter, you can ask them to subscribe to the same. You can also encourage them to pass on the blog post’s link to their network of friends. Your posts will become viral if the power of social networks is triggered in the right direction.

    Great tips Jane.
    Blog commenting and guest blogging has worked great for me. It has helped me getting some nice traffic to my blog. But I would like to mention Web 2.0 properties here. Using Squidoo and HubPages can also give your traffic stats a vital boost. They rand higher on search engines and can even provide you with relevant backlinks.

    Great tips Jane. Commenting does work. If commenting is combined with answering and asking then it goes an extra mile. Guest posting especially on popular sites within your niches will do wonders for your site. Not only will you be able to generate traffic but also build your own brand. I was wondering what your thoughts was on article marketing, does it still work?

  13. Philip A. says:

    Having a targeted and loyal audience is vital for the success of a blog.
    For my blog promoting I started with article marketing in Article Directories, then moved to guest posting which is very time consuming, and I kinda felt sorry for some great content I would have added to my own blog which is fairly new….no I’m commenting on blogs and forums, and personally I think you can reach more people through commenting, I feel it’s more personal this way
    Thanks for posting this information and sharing it with everyone, cheers to you.


  14. Agree with Tarun above. Social media is treasure for traffic reason but we have to be careful or we get trashed as spammers. What’s the best platform of social media? It’s a bit hard to answer but the best bet is to evaluate our traffic profiles. Based on my GA result facebook is the best for my blog with 7% of my monthly visitors came from there.

    The points you mentioned in the post are effective but hard to implement. I tried blog commenting but it requires a lot of effort, Guest posting is awesome way to get more eyeballs but you need to have a great sense of writing otherwise it becomes really difficult to get accepted on higher authority blogs.
