Brand Your Comments !I got new friends through my blog. Guess how? I saw their comments in my blog and I replied to them and so on.Β Branding yourself in your comments is an important one in the Blogging field. It now helps not only to get online friends, but also drives all the traffic to your Blog’s link. Now let us discuss how to brand the comments in such a way. Commenting on others blog will refresh your blog and let others know your blog exists. You can comment in a blog unrelated to the topics in your blog, it can drive some traffic, but it will not be a permanent one. So I prefer readers to comment in a blog related to the subjects or topics in your blog, so you could easily link your blog for reference. The Golden Rule of Commenting is not to SPAM! Remember that in mind. Please don’t spam in my blog and also in others. You can refer the below stuffs for a decent commenting. Happy Commenting!Β

Be The First To Comment : Always try to be the first for commenting in a blog. Because first impression is the best impression. I meant every reader will check the first comment of a article/post rather than other comments.

Check out Popular Posts : Search all the famous blogs and other blogs for their popular post. It is popular mainly due to the maximum page visits and the comments received. It will be useful to display your comments in such a post.

Show Your Photo : Your comments will look dull if it has a default logo instead of other photos. So try to get yourself a cool Gravatar.

Branding : By commenting frequently in blogs will help others to remember your name and your blog’s name. Even the regular readers will be aware of you and your blog. Most popular blogs have top-commentator widget installed. So always try be a top-commentator of a blog. It will try to increase Page Rank and Traffic.

Quote by Arun Basil Lal from Million Clues

Never comment for the sake of commenting, readers can easily distinguish a genuine comment and a fake comment. If you just want to say congrats, do it in a special way.

As per I concern never/ever spam your comment! Don’t misuse or abuse commenting.

  17. Um… I don’t use emoticons because it makes my comment a little childish. Anyways, if you praise truly it will show and the person would know that he has read the post or not.

    I often comment after reading and say what I feel.

  18. One thing i dont like in comments section of any blog is
    I skip the comments which are long enough to read. So I prefer to read simple comments..

    1. I agree, not only comments but also any LONG blog post will discourage the reader to carry on, whatever the topic is. So we should try to be simple yet effective on commenting.

  19. I don’t think so but is it important to show your photo in comments through those gravtars? I mean i am reader of few technology blog but have not used gravtars to show my photos on those blogs. Is it important?

    Your replies to commentators on your blog are a great way to build comments and popularity for an individual post and connect with your readers. Great job!
