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:
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.
