Blogging has increased rapidly over the past few years. Everyone seems to have a blog these days. Blogging was actually meant for online journaling. But these days, blogs are used for making money too. You can very easily find a blog about almost everything.
An important aspect of blogs is commenting. You can comment on other peoples' blogs. The blog owner can also turn off the comments. But mostly, the blog owners don't turn them off. Comments are a great source of content for them.
You can use the commenting feature of blogs for the promotion of your own website. You can very easily get the back links by commenting on other blogs. These back links will help in two ways. Firstly other people visiting that blog will find your link and most probably visit your blog. Secondly, the back links will help you get a more prominent position in the search engines' result pages.
But you should keep some things in mind, while commenting on other blogs. This will make your commenting and promotion efforts more effective.
1. First of all, you should find the blogs relevant to your own blog. Those blogs should also be talking about, what you are talking about on your blog. For example, if your blog is about "making money online", you should try to find some blogs, which are also about online money making. One reason for finding relevant blogs is that the readers of that blog will already be interested in what you have written in your comment. The chances of them visiting your website will thus be increased.
Another reason for finding the relevant blogs and commenting on them is that it will increase your knowledge in that particular domain. And you will be considered an expert in that domain. With more credibility, the chances of more people coming to your website will increase.
2. You should try to add some value to the original content, while commenting on it. You should never write something like "Nice article. Visit my website". This will back fire on you.
Instead, you should try to find out something that is missing from the original article. Once you find such a thing, you should write about that in the comments. This will make you more credible in front of the readers, and they will naturally be interested in visiting your website.
3. Don't keep looking for only the do-follow blogs. You should instead try to find the blogs which have high authority and reputation. The blogs with more readers will be more helpful to you. You should try to find experts in your niche.
4. Another thing you should try to do while posting comments on other blogs is to reply to other comments. And whenever someone replies on your comments, you should try to start a conversation with them. The idea is to be more social on the popular relevant blogs.
We are sure you will love these tips. You should apply these while promoting your website through comments. These will really help your blog a lot. "Enjoy Your Coffee"
