Many bloggers have made more than rocky mistakes in blog commenting. These mistakes are what you are going to learn in this guide.
What is my story regarding commenting on blogs? I started blogging as an entertainment blogger some time ago in 2014 and I was very stingy in blog commenting. I thought I would make that person look famous by leaving a good comment on their blogs rather than me.
This is a bloody truth of the selfish mentality of bloggers in blog comments. I was very stupid and lazy leaving a single comment on a blog until the day I noticed the power of blog commenting. I can’t go much into details of my selfish citation for blog comments.
How did I discovered the secrets of blog commenting?
I changed my mind to blog on reviews the day I discovered the power of building a brand online. I told myself entertainment isn’t my calling in blogging. Since then I changed my mindset of blogging and blog commenting.
I have been doing well in building backlinks since the day I discovered the trick. Am leaving credit to Samuel Igwe of loudtips.com who challenged me to be a top blog commenting blogger.
I once shared a guest post on loudtips blog sometimes ago on the topic understanding your blog DA and PA, my very aim was to tap from his influence as a blogger and gain a trust flow too on my blog and get a DoFollow backlink which was my primary aim of sharing in respect to driving traffic. To my greatest surprise, when I send the post to him for review he actually accepted the guest post and publish it.
But what really happened?
I looked long to get a DoFollow backlink from him and this is what happened. He gave me a No-Follow backlink and I was furious why I will write a post of 1k+ words and could not get a dofollow backlink.
When I contacted him of the reasons why he couldn’t give me a dofollow backlink he told me he doesn’t give dofollow backlinks and that if I do want to build backlinks I should use blog commenting. Hey! Come on buddy, blog commenting? How do I get backlinks through blog commenting? Do you think I have that whole time to leave a comment on a post? No matter how interesting it is?
Is it leaving a comment on a blog like. “Nice article, commenting from…. or admin of…. or is it nice one, also read <a href=”URL.com/article”>naija…. bla…bla…bla</a>?
Blog commenting Mistakes bloggers make
But these mistakes are common for bloggers when leaving comments.
1) Commenting outside the topic.
When leaving a comment on a blog, read very carefully to assimilate the information then leave a comment and see Google and authors handwork. People will want to follow your link to see your personal blog by doing this. Assimilate and regurgitate the information you have comprehended through the post.
Google will penalize you for building bulk backlinks to your homepage within that day. If for example, you’re looking for backlinks through comment box, then 10 to 15 comments are enough per day.
3) Leaving Annoying Kind of Appreciation
Those kinds of comment are call spam comments even though the author never meant to spam the comment box. For example: “Nice one” Thanks for sharing, good article read also:
6) Not setting custom avatar
Don’t consider any fault why you should not consider blog commenting, but always see the need to do that. By this doing, the world of blogging will be an interactive place for everyone.
