7 Tips for Getting Your Comments Approved Swiftly
1. Find Blogs in Your Niche
What’s the point if people come to your blog via a comment you dropped in a blog that talks about repairing bicycles and your own blog is all about orange. The people will not benefit anything and will not be willing to return to your blog again.
Furthermore, your blog will not enjoy much SEO benefit for you commenting on the bicycle repair blog if that’s not your niche market. Therefore, your target should be to read and comment on blogs with the same niche as yours.
2. Insert not More Than one Link
I quite disagree with many bloggers and webmasters that you can leave up to two or more links in one comment; this is because no matter the genuineness of your comment on my blog, I will only approve one link. I personally prefer to have just one link in a comment. Any comment with more than one link is seen as spam on my blog.
3. Add Your Picture to Your Comments
One of the effective ways to build your brand online is to use your own picture, preferably the same one everywhere. Now, what good is it if you use a default image or objects and people don’t see your face next to your comments?
If you really need to be visible and make a name for yourself in the blogging arena, then you need to add your picture. And pictures of your pet, company logo and so on, will not help you to achieve this.
4. Leave Meaningful Comments
To be able to make a meaningful comment on a blog post you need to read the post first. When you highlight some of the key points in your comment, you are showing the blog owner that you have actually read the post.
Remember, you don’t have to agree with everything the post author had said. Don’t be afraid or shy, feel free to voice your opinion on the topic, add value or constructive criticism with facts.
5. Respond to Comments on Your Blog
Back in your own blog, be sure to reply to every comment promptly to keep the discussion going and to encourage more comments from new and old commenters. People want to be heard and appreciated.
Some commenters can be very funny, still, respond to their comments or delete them if you feel they are not relevant.
6. Use Your Real Name in the Name Section
Blog commenting is first of all a means of building a relationship before the other benefits of blog commenting, and you cannot claim to be building a relationship with me when you will not allow me know your real names. Many people said using keyword in the name field is the best, but for me, I will delete your comment one time.
7. Add Value to the Discussion
In blog commenting, you are contributing to either the main post body or the comments other visitors has made already. Therefore, you must add value to the discussion or topic on ground.
