It’s every new bloggers dream to get comments to their blog posts. Because comment shows how engaging and awesome your blog is and also that you’re doing a darn good job (that’s what I feel). It also shows that your readers and friends appreciate you and your effort.
Blog commenting is great for our blog because it attracts more eyes, investors and other co-operate bodies as well. And to my point of view, people/ bloggers who don’t get comment to their blog post(s) are missing out. But I am sure all that will change in a few 🙂
Our site is like any offline business, it is impossible for it to grow if you do not do proper design, optimization, visibility study and publicity.
As offline marketing, if your business is growing and you are not coming up with new innovations or ideas to boost your customers moral, your customers are bound to visit the next shop right? Because, we need improvement to improve our needs, right? But what can you do to keep your audience coming back for more and making that regular comment flow on your blog? That is what we’ll be finding out in a short while.
Some few days ago, my friend and student told me that he don’t think he can continue blogging. I asked him why and he said; when he started blogging newly, he was getting engagements and comments to his blog but suddenly, things started changing. Now he hardly gets comment to his post. And not seeing comments plus engagement in his post is frustrating.
The truth is – If you are getting comments and engagement to your site before and it suddenly just stop, you must be doing something wrong. And what are the things you’re doing wrong?
You Hardly Comment on Other Blogs:
The truth is – it will be difficult or almost impossible for people to comment on your blog if you do not comment on other blogs. The blogging world is like a food chain, the more you comment on people’s blog, the more you get noticed, the more other bloggers get curious about you, the more they visit you and dropping that awesome comment to your blog.
Ask any pro blogger or any blogger receiving comments to his or her blog, they will tell you that they did and they still do comment on other blogger’s blog post.
I know you are too busy, so do i. but try as much to comment on 5 blogs per day but if you have a little more time, try commenting on 10 blog post with commentluv enable. I assure you that with due time, you will start getting comments to your blog (that’s a fact).
I know you don’t comment on other blogs but the truth is if you do not show love to others, nobody will return the love.
Your Comment is just not worth it:
I have deleted enough crappy comments on my blog from bloggers who do not know how to comment. Believe you me, we all want that comments coming in but if you are making a valueless comment on a blog post, that blogger is likely not going to accept/ publish your comment.
When commenting, don’t just leave “great post, thanks for sharing” or “this is what I am looking for” or “I love this post”. These comments won’t pass any good blog’s moderation cue. You can make can make that funny comment on Entertainment blogs but not on others…
When making a comment, make it as valuable as possible. If you can’t come up with good one, try to fit in a little bit yourself to the comment.

Before pushing the Comment button, ask your self – is this comment worth the read
Also remember that there is no shortcut in achieving success…
You Are Not Showing Love to Your Commentators:
Always try as much to visit your comenters blog because if you stop by their blogs, it will boost their moral to always coming back and dropping that good comment.
The truth is – if I come to your blog every day for months, always commenting and always sharing your content. At some point in time, I will stop visiting you, why? Because… it is human nature.
But if i comment on your blog and you reciprocate, i will always wants to comment and share your content, right?
You’re just not asking:
At times, people will come to your blog, read and want to say a thing or two about your post, but because you didn’t ask for their opinion or comment, they’ll just go.
Some people loved to be asked before they do. But still, they are some people who will comment without you asking but those people are few :).
Here is the truth: If you do not follow step one and two, then the rest of the tips might not work for you.
Remember to always share the love and you will receive in return.
