Oh the title sounds pretty gruesome doesn’t it? Ah well you get nowhere in life if you don’t play the game.
It’s pretty easy to do, very simple, yet so many fail to even know this exists. When you visit a blog I am hoping after you have spent the time to read a post that you then find the time to comment. This is one of my pet hates with the blogging world. Leaving a comment can be so beneficial to your own blog, so use it to your advantage.
You are NOT just leaving a comment on a blog post, you are opening up your own blog to a new audience, intentionally you are stealing that blog owners traffic.
So just how do you get noticed from leaving a comment I hear you say? Well let me explain:
Search for those blogs in the same niche as you, there is no point wasting your time trying to comment on something you know nothing about. Of course sourcing out the “highly ranked” ones works best, as they get a large amount of traffic.
Never spam a blog, I know this would annoy me as a blog owner, but personally I love comments, hey who doesn’t, so go and comment on as many as you can.
When you leave a comment, think before you type, writing your comment up on Word for example will make you sit and look at what your typing. You would never just write and publish straight to your own blog I am hoping, so take the same time and care over each and every comment you leave, then edit it so it is perfect.
Quit leaving a few words, if your going to bother to comment then actually comment. Offer your opinion, offer some advice. Use names when talking or replying to another commenter.
If there are many comments, a tip to getting easily noticed is to reply to the first comment, the one right at the top of the list of course, get your name seen.
Sign up to receive email notifications, yes I know too many will annoy you, they do me sometimes and I have been known to unsubscribe , but this gives you a great opportunity of getting into a conversation with others.
Use your Twitter name to post your comment rather than an open URL , this makes it easy for others to follow you.
Happy Traffic Stealing ….
