How to Sprinkle Magical Traffic Dust on Your Blog Comments (A Blog Commenting Guide)

Blog commenting rocks!

Blog commenting rocks!

Blog commenting, unfortunately, is one of the most overlooked traffic strategies.

Why is that?

It definitely deserves more credit because it’s actually one of the very best ways to drive highly engaged visitors to your blog.

In fact, blog commenting is the #1 thing I did to drive traffic to my blog when I relaunched it last year, which generated 8,000+ visitors in it’s first 30 days.

Yeah, sure, it’s not as fast as some other traffic methods, but it is simple to do and it’s FREE.

Who doesn’t like free? :)

Although commenting for traffic is simple to do, it’s come to my attention that some newbies aren’t grasping the concept behind blog commenting and the benefits it has, beyond just traffic generation.

A few weeks ago I was surfing around the threads of WebsiteBabble.com, an amazingly pleasant and engaged forum community owned by my good friend Lisa Irby, and I came across this thread:

Noz's success story

Noz’s success story (click image to enlarge)

 

I’m always glad to read success stories like this because it’s further proof that if you put in the time and work necessary the results will come.

As the discussion progressed, I shared blog commenting as one of the best ways to drive targeted, engaged traffic.

Which resulted in several requests from forum members for a guide specifically about blog commenting:

BTW, you can read the entire thread conversation by clicking here.

If you’re already subscribed to me then you most likely got the email I sent a few weeks ago asking for your feedback on the need for a blog commenting guide. And to be quite honest, I was pretty surprised by the number of responses I got back expressing the need for one.

So, per your request, here it is!

I know it’s taken me a little bit to publish it (due to some unforeseen tech issues) but I’ve finally whipped it together for you.

I’ve recorded an in-depth tutorial video about how to blog comment for much MORE than just blog traffic.

If you’ve been actively following me since the dawn of my blog relaunch last year, then I’m sure you’ve noticed that I’ve been M.I.A (missing in action) for the last few months – at least on the content creation side of things.

Well, I’m back in action!

I’ve been taking care of some personal stuff and now that I’ve gotten them all sorted out, I’m ready to get back in the drivers seat. :)

I’ve got a ton of juicy new posts and content coming your way and I’m excited to get my content creation juices flowing again.

    Hey Ti,

    Well, I don’t have 25 minutes at this very moment to watch your entire video but I’ll be sure to do that girl. You KNOW I’m curious when it comes to blog commenting cause that’s my all time favorite thing to do. Not that I need any new pointers I’m sure but always love to hear other people’s successes as well.

    I’ll also be sure to tweet this post so that I can get the downloadable live examples. Oh yeah, just more stuff to learn and share with my readers right!

    Thank you for taking the time to put this all together and I know you’re a pro when it comes to getting targeted traffic to your site so if there is any area I can improve upon, this would be it. ;-)

    Thanks Ti and you have a fabulous day.

    ~Adrienne

    • tiroberts

      Adrienne,

      Thanks for dropping by and sharing your input. Yes, I know that you are indeed a blog commenting queen. You do it so well. Both your quality and quantity is amazing. I see you EVERYWHERE, literately. LOL.

      BTW, I’ve added a downloadable PDF outline of part 1. It doesn’t reflect everything I say within the video word for word, but it does give a good overview of the content.

      Hopefully that will suffice for now until I can find a good transcriber, for cheap. Would you have any suggestions for a good transcriber service?

      Also, I believe the social locker is fixed. I just updated it with the version that was released to fix the bug. Hopefully it’s working fine now.

      Thanks again for dropping by and sharing your input. It’s always great to hear your voice added to the conversation. :)

      Ti

  • Adrienne

    By the way, I tweeted this post through your locked area and it didn’t give me access to the downloadable information. Bummer! :-(

    • tiroberts

      Ahhh! See, now, that is exactly what I hoped did NOT happen. :(

      This is my first time using this social locker plugin and I was afraid some of my readers may run into that problem.

      Hmmm… Adrienne, would you mind circling back around and clicking the other social buttons on the locker to see if it’ll unlock?

      Meanwhile, I’ll see if there’s any switches I can jiggle on my end.

      Thanks for the heads up, BTW. Really appreciate it.

    • tiroberts

      BTW, which social button did you push initially?

  • Arthur Strout

    Good Day to You Ti,
    I’m having the same problem as Adrienne. I selected both Google+ and Facebook. I wrote a recommendation for this post on both my pages there. The Facebook and Google+ comments are the same, so if you check out my page at Google it’s all good.
    You asked for recommendation that may be helpful for another tutorial. I have a hard time figuring out what to do with the basics in social media. A “just the basics” or “getting started using and understanding” Google+, Twitter and Facebook would be extremely helpful.
    I’m looking forward to viewing part 2 of your blog comments tutorial soon. Good luck with the technical stuff. I struggle so hard with that myself. Once I’m past some of my own tech junk, I plan on sharing what works and helping others through my own experience “getting stuck”.
    My Best to You
    Arth

    • tiroberts

      Hi Arthur,

      Wonderful to see your comment again! :)

      Boy, I tell ya’, one of my biggest pet peeves about blogging is dealing with all the technical crap that comes along with it. It really grinds my gears!

      LOL. But I guess there’s a pro and con to everything, right?

      Well, I believe that I’ve finally got the bug fixed. I saw in my plugin dashboard that this issue was happening across the board for all the social locker plugins from this vendor. There was an update of the plugin that was said to fix this issue that I hadn’t installed yet.

      It should work fine now since I’ve now installed the update.

      Would you mind circling back around and checking to see if it’s working for you now? I sure hope so, if not I’m liable to just trash the thing all together.

      Anywho, thanks for the content suggestion. I love to know exactly what my readers are needing in regards to content so your input is really a great help. I’ll definitely put that on my calendar.

      Thanks again for dropping by and sharing you input.

      I look forward to seeing more of you around soon. :)

  • Sue Neal

    Hi Ti,

    Like Adrienne and Arthur, I’ve shared this post but not received access to the locked content – I’ve done a scheduled share (using Hootsuite) to twitter, FB and G+, via the Twitter button.

    Also, like Adrienne, I just don’t have 25 minutes to spare to listen to the video right now – it would have been good to have a transcript. I’ll try to find time to come back to it later. I must admit, I’m not keen on video posts for this reason – they can just take up so much time.

    I do think blog commenting is a great way to drive traffic to your blog – I think it’s had a big impact on mine – the only downside is the time it takes. I really enjoy it and think it can yield dividends, but it’s extremely time-consuming (as you can see, like most bloggers, I’m short on time – could just do with a few more hours in each day!)

    Thanks for this share, Ti, and I hope you get the gremlin with the locked content sorted :)

    • tiroberts

      Hi Sue,

      Great to see your comment. :)

      Thanks for letting me know about social locker issue. I did some digging and found that there was an update of the plugin that was said to fix this issue that I hadn’t installed yet.

      It should work fine now since I’ve now installed the update.

      Would you mind circling back around and checking to see if it’s working for you now? Let me know if it is or not; I’d really appreciate it.

      Also, I’ve added a downloadable PDF outline of part 1. It doesn’t reflect everything I say within the video word for word, but it does give a good overview of the content.

      Hopefully that will suffice for now until I can find a good transcriber, for cheap.

      I was definitely thinking about getting my videos transcribed as I know it would be a huge help to my readers. I’m actually looking into that now and I’m thinking I should be able to find a good transcriber for cheap on Fivver.com.

      Unless, you have any other suggestions for this kind of service, do you?

      Yes, I agree, blog commenting is incredibly time consuming, especially if you’re doing it the right way. But it’s more than worth the effort. It’s like sewing tons of seed that will all grow and work for you a thousand times over in the future.

      Thanks again for dropping by and sharing your input, Sue; I look forward to seeing more of you around. :)

      Ti

      • Sue Neal

        Hi Ti,

        I’ve retweeted your post but I’m afraid it still hasn’t released the locked content – doors still stubbornly shut :(

        Thanks so much for your reply and especially for going to all the trouble to provide the PDF, which I’ve already had quick look at – I much prefer reading to listening, unless it’s a practical tutorial where it’s helpful to see a process being carried out.

        Afraid I can’t help as regards transcription services – I’ve never used them. Fiverr would probably be your best bet if you can find someone reliable, with good reviews.

        I can see you have some great tips, particularly when it comes to connecting with top bloggers. It never would have occurred to me to put anything other than my home page in the website link when I’m leaving a comment – a great idea to use this to link to one of your best posts.

        I don’t think setting up a membership site is something I fancy doing, but I can see it could be a great business model for some bloggers.

        I agree with you that commenting is worth the effort – as you say, it’s about taking the long view. Building trust and relationships always takes time.

        Cheers, Tia :)

        • tiroberts

          Thanks, Sue.

          I just took down the social locker. It was a neat idea but was much more of a headache than I bargained for! I don’t have the time or patience to deal with technology stuff. LOL.

          Everything is accessible for viewing and download now.

          Also, I didn’t realize this until after your comment, but the PDF you downloaded is the wrong one! It actually belonged to another video I made for my membership site so you actually got some paid content for free by accident. How about that? LOL.

          I just uploaded the right file and you’ll be able to download it at the same link.

          Thanks again, Sue, for your input and feedback. :)

          Ti

          • Sue Neal

            LOL, Ti – so I got a bonus for free – fantastic!

            Sorry you’ve had all these hitches, but I guess that’s what happens sometimes when you’re brave enough to try new things out.

            Thanks very much for your response and for opening up the locked content – and a huge thank you for mentioning my post – I’m highly honoured :)

            All the best, Ti – happy Friday to you and have a great weekend :)

          • tiroberts

            You’re quite welcome, Sue, and you have a great weekend as well! :)

  • Arthur Strout

    Good Day to You Ti,

    I really appreciate the extra mile you went to resolve
    getting us access to Part 2 of this tutorial. It was definitely worth the wait!
    You have a unique flare and your hard work so hard! I added another post to my
    Facebook and Google+ pages as a thank you and quote it below:

    “Blog Comments Tips Part 2 is now available!

    Ti Roberts sent an email to her subscribers (myself
    included) about “getting my a$$ kicked by technology!”

    She was trying some new technology to get her viewers to
    share her post/videos on social media. Unfortunately using the social sharing buttons,
    for instance “like” or “Google+”, failed to give access to Part 2.
    Oh Boy! Do I understand how she feels! I’m seriously
    considering turning my free WordPress testing site into a fully hosted site and
    making it a test, record and sharing place for all of us to learn about and
    more effectively use the tools we need to succeed.
    Thank you Ti for your efforts and finally removing the pesky
    culprit to give us access.

    This link from yesterday’s post is the same, but now
    brings you to Part 2 of the tutorial (you can access Part 1 there also): (No
    need to include it here.)”

    I know how hard it is trying to work and juggle computer
    time. I was under the impression that you worked at trafficking full time as
    your only job. How impressive you are managing collage full time, working part
    time and putting so much effort into such great quality presentations.

    Well Done!

    Hi Ti,

    I`ve been reading your posts for a while now & I have actually commented before , but I doubt that you will remember me!

    The fact is I just love your stuff! You have a lot to say & you put it over so well!

    One of my greatest fears is that I don`t know enough about a subject to be able to produce epic content …….so I don`t!

    I`ve always enjoyed reading the comments on blogs & can easily appreciate why it`s such a great source for relationship building & gaining ideas for further posts.

    One question that did keep on going through my mind was do you only concentrate on blog posts? By that I mean do you comment on articles in article directories or posts on social media sites?

    Please could you share with us how you come up with content ideas & how you actually put a post together.

    Look forward to following you!

    Nick

    • tiroberts

      Hi Nick,

      I absolutely DO remember you, how could I forget?! It’s great to see your comment and I’m thrilled to hear that you’re still following me. :)

      I’m glad that you’ve found this tutorial helpful and you bring up some great points in your comment.

      I actually already have this topic on my calendar and I will be recording an tutorial on how to do this as well in the near future. So it’s great to know that my readers are actually needing this information!

      Stay tuned for more tutorials coming soon and if you can think of any more topics you’d like for me to cover, please do let me know as well.

      Great to see your comments again, Nick, I’m looking forward to seeing more. :)

    Hi Ti,
    I avoided blog commenting for the longest time. Guess I was afraid of what to say and not looking stupid.

    Now, I love blog commenting because of the relationships that are being formed and being able to voice my opinion.

    I love that you made this video and left a PDF on how to go about blog commenting. This will be very helpful for me and many.

    This is the first time I have commented on your blog and am glad I found you on BizSugar.

    Thank you for this valuable information.

    Hey Ti,

    This is my first time commenting on your blog but, I thoroughly enjoyed reading (and listening to) your post.

    I’m a big fan of blog commenting because for me, it ties in with something I like to do anyway which is read other people’s content. So, if I’m going to take the time to read your post, I might as well comment on it, right?

    That just makes sense to me!

    • tiroberts

      Hi Hermine,

      Wonderful to see your comment; welcome to the community!

      You’re absolutely right, if I’m gonna read it then I’m definitely gonna comment. It’s common courtesy in my book.

    Blog comments on Disqus or CommentLuv or G+ on WP via plugin all carry a certain social signal pulse that links to your semantic social footprint and to your social connections that hopefully adds authority to your authorship so when your Rich Snippet shows up in SERPs your personal branding effort pays dividends

    Thx to Adrienne for the share in my G+ stream

    • tiroberts

      Hi Neil,

      It’s great to see your comment; welcome to the community!

      You’re absolutely right, all comments, regardless of the comment system use will aid in enhancing your social footprint.

      That’s why I’m not picky about my commenting system or hard pressed to get a CommentLuv system. I’ve enjoyed the Disqus comment system since the early days of my blog relaunch and I continue to do so.

      If I change up my comment system it will most likely be to aid in my blog list building efforts. Other than that, I’m happy with it.

      Thanks, Niel, for dropping by and adding your voice to the discussion.

      I look forward to seeing more of you around soon. :)

      These are all suggestions I’m going to look into. I hadn’t realized how important it is to have the right commenting tools.

      Also, thanks so much to Ti for the great ideas about comments. It’s one thing I fail at. I think we focus so much on our content and forget to interact with people from the other side.

      I love the PDF summaries too.

    Hi Ti,

    That’s a great tutorial. You should have that in the form of an eBook for people like me who would rather read the information.

    I’ve just blogged today on promoting your post and my last but not least tips was blog commenting, of course.

    • tiroberts

      Hi Sylviane,

      Great to see you, again. :)

      Right under the first video I do have a brief downloadable PDF outline for my readers who’d rather skim over the info. The more in-depth examples are given in the second half of the tutorial for those who like visual examples.

      I know that many of my readers, like yourself, would rather read the content in text format rather than video. So I’ve tried to incorporate the two to accommodate both types.

      I’m working on finding a good, reasonably priced transcriptionist so I can have my videos transcribed. Would you happen to have any suggestions or someone you could refer me to?

      Thanks for dropping by. :)

    Hello Ti,

    That was a very comprehensive list about blog commenting. I found it to be extremely informative. Also, you did it in such a way that people can put it into action right away. I really love information that is self-explanatory and you did a great job of doing that.

    I, myself have been trying to do a lot more blog commenting. I have noticed that the top blogger’s do lot’s of blog commenting. Thank you writing such a fantastic blog post! Now, I know I have to up my blog commenting game up for sure.

    • tiroberts

      HI Maketta,

      Great to see you again! I’m glad to hear that you found value in this post. My aim was to make it as simple and as easy to follow as possible, so thanks for giving your feedback.

      Blog commenting is def a game changer. Even if you can only commit to leaving 3 to 5 comments per day, that will help increase your overall brand/blog exposure.

      Thanks for taking the time to add you voice the discussion, Maketta. :)

    Hi Cole,

    Great to see your comment; welcome to the community!

    Yes, there have been a TON of blog, high profile and up and coming, who’ve written posts referring to blog comments. It’s certainly been a hot topic here lately.

    I can def see why local smaller brick and mortar businesses would rather rely on local SEO to build brand awareness and gain more exposure. I actually think that local SEO is one of the very few niches where SEO does matter and can make a significant difference.

    I can’t say that I’ve been able to increase local traffic for local small businesses as I don’t contract any local clients, or any clients for that matter. I’m not currently taking on any personal clients and my focus is more so on blogging, affiliate marketing and product creation. So, my traffic generation strategies are more so aimed to increasing global traffic for global blogs and websites.

    I really do appreciate you taking the time to add your voice and input the discussion, Cole. I love your well thought out contribution and I look forward to seeing more of you around soon. :)

    I like the PDF format, too, since it takes less time for me to read than to hear someone speak. I am new here, and came here from Adrienne Smith’s blog. I am a fairly new blogger (about nine months old) and so I am still learning about the strategies to blogging and commenting, but I must confess that I got an early start to this back in the spring.

    For now, I’m happy to be here. I have a thread on my blog where you can post a link to your blog, too, if you like, for more promotion. You can find it here: http://lorrainemariereguly.wordpress.com/2013/08/13/post-your-links-here-to-promote-yourself-and-your-blog/

      I’m very glad to hear that you liked the PDF download. I’m going to make that standard for all of my tutorials, so thanks for chiming in on that.

      I popped over and checked out your blog and it looks great. You’re doing an awesome job so far and I’m confident that the best is yet to come from you.

      I’ll be sure to drop by your promo page and leave a blurb there as well.

    Hi Ti, I found your via Adrienne’s blog today. I love how you put your info into PDF – I find it hard to watch video’s as hubs want to know what I’m watching ,etc. I can quietly read :) I think commenting does make a big difference but it takes a lot of time as well as you must read first and think of things to comment about. I find when I haven’t time to comment the comments on my blog go down but not the traffic as much. I believe it’s valuable too because you learn what people want to learn more about thus giving you more to blog about :) Nice to meet you!

    • tiroberts

      Hiya Lisa,

      It’s so great to see your comment; welcome to the community!

      I’m very happy to hear that you enjoyed my tut. This is the first of several tutorials on engagement, traffic generation and blog promotion I’ve lined up so if you enjoyed this one, I’m sure you’ll enjoyed the others to come. So be on the look out. :)

      I’ve dropped by your blog a few times before and left you comments. You really do produce some interesting content over there and I love your writing style and tone. Plus, you have a great, engaging community, which is wonderful to have as well.

      Thanks so much for taking the time to add your voice to the discussion. It means a lot and I look forward to seeing more of you around soon.

      Have a great weekend! :)

    Hello Ti,

    This is my first time visiting your blog and I have to say that I’m really happy that I came across it. I found you through a post Adrienne recently published. I have always heard that blog commenting is a great way to attract traffic to your blog, but I was never really sure how to do it. I comment on blogs, but I don’t think that I do it consistently enough considering my hectic schedule.

    I’m a full-time graduate student and I am also in the middle of my internship, both of which keep me busy, but to add to that, I also have to spend time with my family. I hope as I become more organized I can put your tips into action. I would love to be able to find the time to comment on at least 5 different blogs daily, if not more.

    Thank you for your tips and resources, these are great! I hope that when I do put them into action, I’ll see good results!!

      Hi Felicia,

      It’s great to see your comment; welcome to the community!

      I can totally understand your time struggle. I’m also a FT college student so it takes some doing to really find the time to get my engagement time in. There are some days when I fall short, but I always try to get SOMETHING in everyday.

      I’m very happy to be connected with you and thanks for taking the time to add your voice to the discussion. I’ve checked out your blog and you have some great content over there. You’ll be seeing me interacting with you there soon, too.

      I look forward to seeing more of you around. Thanks again, and let me know if there’s anything else I can do to help. :)

    Hey Ti,

    I really didn’t realize how important and valuable commenting is until this year. I definitely was about to generate a lot more traffic than before, even though I was taught to blog everyday, which didn’t suffice. This is definitely a great video on how important blog commenting is. Many people have asked me how valuable blogging and commenting is. Well I can definitely point them to this blog post! Thanks for sharing!

      Hi Sherman,

      So great to see your comment; welcome to the community!

      Yes, blog commenting and just interacting/engagement in general is very important when it comes to getting known in the blogosphere.

      I believe that everything concerning growing traffic and exposure to your blog starts with a blog comment. From there things progress into social media interactions, email communications, interview posts and then eventually guests posts.

      You can’t be afraid to put yourself out there, that’s how people find you!

      Thanks, Sherman, for taking the time to add your voice to the discussion and for sharing this post with your circle of friends; I truly appreciate it!

      I look forward to seeing more of you around soon. Take care!

    My strategy for blog commenting is to dominate the discussion. The way I do this is I pick one blog and read all of the posts on it for a week or even two weeks. I comment extensively on each post making sure the comments are thougtful and meaningful, and most importantly add to the discussion. I try to submit a comment on every single blog post on that blog and then move on to the next blog. After the author adds new content, I go back to that blog and continue commenting. This strategy has worked extremely well for me especially because my name keeps popping up as the top commenter on all of these blogs. My grand strategy is to have a comment on every single post of 1000 blogs by the end of next year. This is a very time consuming, but simple strategy that anyone can execute.

      Hi Denis,

      Wow! You have a stellar strategy in place. I’m sure that your traffic will benefit greatly from it. Not to mention the relationships you’ll build as well.

      I wish you the best of luck and if there’s anything I can do to further help you just let me know. :)
