Tips on writing Good Comments on other Blog Posts!

A short but sweet post regarding commenting on other blogs; Commenting on other blog posts as you know is an integral part of building quality backlinks to your own website or blog, however there are some concerns over the quality of some comments being left on posts.

You can normally tell when someone hasn’t taken the bother to read a post thoroughly before leaving a pointless comment such as ‘great post thanks for sharing’. I personally tend to remove some of these types of comments from my own blog when moderating, as I believe it to be un-resourceful to my readers.

Asides the importance of building backlinks, leaving good resourceful and insightful comments has its other advantages. By being more creative with what you write you can properly address the topic with your own views, opinions and suggestions, be more creative with your commenting basically. To be able to do this effectively you’ll need to start reading posts more accurately.

Leaving good comments doesn’t go unrecognised as I’ve noticed on my own blog; by getting involved in reading other informative posts and leaving productive comments can bring traffic and general interest from readers back to your own blog.

Here are some bullet point suggestions to keep an eye on when commenting:

  • Read the post fully and understand what has been written.
  • Think about your views and ideas on the subject.
  • Write your comment in a Word document, check for spelling and grammar and aim for about 4 to 5 lines of text. If you have plenty to say then by all means write more.
  • Post your comment and subscribe to the responses.

Bloggers like myself value the importance of quality comments, and one of my suggestions today is for you to take a careful look at the way you leave comments on other blogs.

    Hello Fabrizio. I’ve been reading your blog for a week now and was intimidated to leave a comment. But I guess I can break the ice here.

    I have not known that back links are built from blog commenting as I understood them to be no-follow and useless. I have blown it with my blog, several times; I bought almost every back link building program out there. And you know what? It cost me dearly. My blog started growing backwards. I am still trying to fix it.

    Anything that says ‘automation’ – in fact, if it has to do with a blog… run away!

    Well, I hope that was slightly valuable.

    Ps. I won’t go as far as writing my comment in Word first. I think the comment sections’ spell checker should be efficient enough.

      Hi Ivin,

      Thanks for sharing your comment and dilemma which I’m sorry to hear about truly. More or less getting backlinks from commenting is a bit of a hit and run subject, which is why I use and encourage other bloggers to use the CommentLuv plugin which I see you use on your blog. You’ve probably already seen this post but I’ll post the link anyway, it’s a list of 400 do-follow CommentLuv blogs.



      Keep reading and commenting on other blogs, I’ve also found that taking part in online forums really helps to build those backlinks, good luck.
