Tips To Get Free Traffic From Blog Commenting

Interested in getting free traffic for your blog? And one that doesn’t need much effort either? Well, you can through blog commenting. You know, when you visit another blog and leave your comments instead of being a silent reader. You can drive traffic to your blog by branding your comments.

Benefits of Blog Commenting

There are quite a few benefits to commenting on blogs, of which some of them are:

With so many comments out there, I’m sure you sometimes wonder just how to attract attention to your comments. Here are some questions that you may want to ask.

Does The Blog Have CommentLuv Plugin?

blog comments trafficI like it when I see a CommentLuv plugin on the blogs that I am about to comment. It does encourage me to comment. I’m sure many of you would agree too.

What this plugin does is to place a link of the commenter’s latest blog post at the end of their comment. This way, other readers and commenters are able to view the title of my latest post and if they are interested, can just hop over. Great to get some free traffic to my website!

Do You Have An Avatar?

An avatar is your image that tags along on your comments on posts and forums, together with your name. It is easily created. Check out Gravatar.

Would be great if you do create one. Sure will come in handy especially when you are not among the first few commentators or when there are a whole bunch of other comments too. It definitely makes your comment stand out and be more visible to other readers. This will get you some good traffic for sure!

Although recommended, you don’t have to put your picture. You can upload an image of your pet or an animation or just about anything else you fancy. Nothing rude or offensive though please.

Are You Adding Value?

Is what you have to say, meaningful? Or does it even make sense? Is it of value to the other readers of the blog?
Too often, commenters make general comments that seemed to fit in almost any blog they go to. It’s like the ultimate go-to comment that you use on every single blog you visit. It gives the impression that you are trying to blog-hopto as many blogs as possible in the shortest time… without really reading the posts. That’s akin to being a fake. And you know what? You are sounding like a spammer too.

Try to come up with something informative, witty or funny. Alternatively, you could also provide your insights and recommendations. Good advices are always appreciated. If you can’t or don’t have the inspirations at that moment, you could even comment on other comments.

Is Your Comment Related To The Topic?

Even though you desperately wanted to talk about something else, the comments section is not the right place to do so. Not only will you sound irrelevant, you may end up irritating some people.

So, read the blog posts (and not just the post title only) to understand what the author is trying to say before you comment. And make sure that it is relevant.

Now, if you have an entirely different experience on the topic, won’t that be a great idea for a new post? You can place a link on your comments to let others know where to find your post.

Are You Nice?

Being nice doesn’t mean that you have to always agree with the author. You can disagree but be polite in delivering your thoughts. Respect the author and other readers and you will find that you will get respected too. I’m sure many will be interested to know more about you if you display a good character.


Commenting on blogs definitely bring you lots of benefits. When properly done, this will get you a lot of free traffic to your own website or blog.
