Few days back one of my blogger friend Abhishek asked me a question :
I just came to know that you are active commenter on most of the blogs.
Your comments easily cross 100’s within a week.
Well, I feel lazy for commenting.
Can you please tell me, if there is any profit from commenting like traffic or relationship or SEO or anything else? You do you just comment out of your interest?
Though Abhishek already answered the question by mentioning important points. To answer his question in details , instead of replying him. I thought it would be better I should write a detailed post on the importance of commenting for any bloggers and social media person.
Despite of other reasons this is the most important reason you should start commenting on other blogs. You always complain that your site is not getting enough traffic from other search engine, that is because your site is not gaining enough authority in search engines. When you comment on blogs, it helps you to create backlinks and build traffic to your blog. Though most of these links are nofollow and carry little value, but again it helps a bit. For new blogs, commenting will help in faster indexing of your blog.

Another important aspect of Commenting is Traffic. Commenting helps a lot to drive traffic into your blog. Though there are few things which you need to take care of, instead of adding comments like thanks nice post, try to add more values to comments. Another thing which can easily be done is take advantage of threaded wordpress comments. Reply to any question asked on any post, be it your blog or others blog. Anything which add value is appreciated by everyone. To take the maximum advantage of commenting follow these simple rules :
- Try to be the First commentator to comment
- Write detailed comment. (Minimum 4 lines)
- Make sure you have an image added with your email address. Use Gravatar.com
Commenting with your Keyword as a name has a great advantage in terms of SEO, though many bloggers might find it as a spam and they don’t accept such comment. But if you comment without self promotion and add more value to the post, everyone will love to accept your comment.
