How Commenting Can Help You to Get 1000 New Readers In Few Days

When you start a new blog, your first goal is to get new readers, more traffic and more subscribers. Of the three, I always suggest that bloggers focus first on getting more subscribers, as they turn into return visitors and increase the trust value of your domain. However, this is not an easy task for a new blog.  In this post, I will share a tip to help you to get more targeted traffic that you can then turn into subscribers with your quality content.

Let’s have a look at how commenting can help you to take your blog to the next level:

The strategy itself is simple. You simply need to spare a half hour a day for commenting.

Select a few major websites in your niche. Make sure the target users are the same as yours’. Keep track of all the feeds using a tool such as FeedDemon, and manage your folders.  (The approach here is to create different folders on your feed reader for different types of blogs that you are targeting to comment on toward the purpose of getting subscribers.)

Again, all of the blogs should be in the same niche. For example, my niche is blogging and technology so that I would create folders for the same niche, and typically my folders will look something like this:

  • Popular blogging blogs
  • Blogging blogs using Top Commentator plugin
  • Blogging blogs using CommentLuv plugin
  • Dofollow blog comments on blogging niche

Now, commenting on popular blogging blogs will help me to get decent traffic, and if the content on my blog is compelling and interesting, I can expect a fair amount of conversion.

The second and fourth options in the list noted above will give me an SEO advantage, and the backlinks will be high-quality relevant backlinks.  The blog enabled with the CommentLuv plugin will help me to showcase my latest article, giving it more exposure. A good article title will do the trick to getting more CTR.

Now – spend at least 30 minutes a day commenting on these blog updates. Make sure you add value rather than simply making a comment like “Nice! Thank you!” or “Great post!”

If you keep track of blog updates using Twitter, then you might be lucky enough to be the first one to comment. The first commenter will always get more traffic, and thus his comment will be more beneficial.

Suppose you’re the first one to comment on a post published at, and the first day you get ten hits from the pro blogger, and the next day it goes down to five, and gradually decreases from there. It will still continue giving traffic once in a while.

Now suppose you make ten such comments in a day. Let’s do the simple calculations for that one day.

Out of ten comments you’ve written, let’s say six work for you (worst case scenario).

  • The first day you will be getting 6*10= 60 visitors
  • The 2nd day you will be getting 4*10 = 40 visitors.

So you’re getting 100 visitors within two days from your niche sites.

Now show them the best of your content, (the best way to do this is by using this landing page strategy).

So – even if you are successfully converting 50% of these visitors into your loyal visitors, you will be getting 50 RSS subscribers within a day!

Worst case scenario, if you are a new blogger without much content, and you manage to grab 5 RSS subscribers with this strategy, isn’t that better than spending an hour writing content?

Here is a testimonial from one reader who got a lot of traffic and many new email subscribers by simply adding a meaningful comment here at ShoutMeLoud:

  1. Harsh,

    I think this will work. I haven’t tried this. I have to admit that i am bit lazy in going to other blogs and commenting. It is bad. If i want to get good traffic i need to read more and more blogs and comment..

    1. Harsh Agrawal

      I know this work need great effort..but if you do it wisely for 2 weeks.. the result will be record breaking for u.

  2. It works, but not for all blogs and spending that much time on commenting would never give sudden boost in feed readers.

    Btw, have you seen any pro-blogger wasting his/her time on commenting? They would rather prefer to work on their blog. πŸ˜€

    1. Harsh Agrawal

      Harshad the stage at which Dareen is now, he does not need to comment anywhere.
      Most of people try to become the first one to comment on his blog because first comment always get noticed.
      That’s what I try on his blog and it actually works. I won’t say I get lots of traffic but if my posts are based on SEO or blogging, that attracts the same kind of visitors.

      Always try to comment on the niche blog according to latest post which you have posted.

      Great post. Never have thought of organizing feeds that way. Honestly I only subscribe through email but now I think I’m going to try your way so I can comment more on specific blogs πŸ˜€

      1. Harsh Agrawal

        Thanks Michael.
        And from my personal experience it works big time. Though it needs lots of dedication for few days (7-10 days ) and if you can spend this much time on a blog with useful comments. You will see the difference in no time.

    3. Hi,

      Blog or website commenting will provide quality backlinks. However, I am not sure if it helps in generating feed subscriber.

  3. Simon | Teenius

    Great post. Personally I spend about an hour a day commenting on other people’s blogs, and I must say I think it’s had a big impact on my own blog. I mean, I get around 17 comments per post on average, so I’m really pleased with that πŸ™‚

  4. after all, all in one working forumula for new bloggers to understand the traffic metrics and commenting power ..

    p.s. any one heard of that Paid Internet Commenters by China ! chinese know power of commenting πŸ˜€

    1. Harsh Agrawal

      There are actually many paid software for this. But no matter what they will never be able to give the personal touch.

  5. Any one can get quality backlinks by commenting also. Dofollow blogs are great for easy backlinks πŸ™‚

  6. I only comment for get backlink, I do not think that being first on comment list can increase feed subscriber to 1000, but it can help for grow traffic and backlink. afterall your blog is nice.

  7. Well.. I think this is a nice idea .

    Another Important point which one body said here was that if you try to give genuine comments , you have to actually read a lot of stuff first and that will help you get some serious knowledge too .. so its a great thing in itself . Even if you dont get expected readers , you will get unexpected knowledge πŸ™‚


  8. I comment for getting backlinks as well traffic and i think chandan is right. Getting backlink is different task, when you get backlinks from the listed link then it doesn’t need to first or second in the list. But make good comment regarding the post.

  9. your site s awesome n excellent n…..there are no words really to express the greatness of your site dude…:-):-):-)
    day by day its improving a lot and this article which you have posted here is extremely useful for my site…..really nice 1

  10. Very good knowing sharing. Will definitely implement it. I liked the comment by Manish Chauhan, “Even if you dont get expected readers , you will get unexpected knowledge. ” Wonderful!!

  11. harsh you made it really easy and cool,doing this surely increases time we use to comment on blogs or websites,which will surely increase our traffic and subscribers.

  12. Thanks Harsh,
    I need to be more organized and targeted. Being involved in the sites I like is something I’ve been meaning to do, but now I have a blog I have even more reasons for doing so!

  13. Thanks Harsh,

    I am following your suggestion from your blog. Let’s hope it will work and i will get some traffic.

    One question! may you tell which is better Genesis or Thesis. any comparison?

    1. Hey Anand
      I hope this will work for you too…. Though if not subscriber, I’m sure this strategy will bring you recognition and people will start knowing you. Just one same avatar all the time..
      Meanwhile when we compare Genesis and Thesis both are good… People who are using Genesis says it’s easy to customize but it’s almost the same coz you need to have little bot of CSS knowledge. My recommendation would be Thesis of course. πŸ™‚

  14. Ajay singh bisht

    ohhh…harsh !! this has been the best article i read over your blog..thanx a lot for this mate…

  15. I think this will work. I haven’t tried this. I have to admit that i am bit lazy in going to other blogs and commenting. It is bad. If i want to get good traffic i need to read more and more blogs and comment.
