Do you take time to read blog posts and then not comment?
Many people do comment and for good reasons. For those that don’t you may be missing out on more than you think.
Commenting is good for many reasons. One of them is for the benefit of the writer themselves to let them know what you like or don’t like about the post. This can lead to improved posts later or posts more relevant to your taste or expectations. It is important that your comments are relevant and show that you have read the post and not something like “great post” etc.
You will also find that that people will read your comments and if you are a regular commentator on a particular website that you will build a reputation with the readers yourself. When you comment you should leave your website address and you will find that people will visit your website /blog and your traffic will grow.
Many full time bloggers spend more time commenting on other peoples blogs than they spend time writing their own. They have successfully grown their own blog by spending time doing this and traffic grows from other blog readers as well as the search engines that find these comments and link back to their own blogs.
How do you feel about commenting on blogs? Is this something you do? Have you found it successful in getting traffic to your own blog or website?
