If you get a conversation going on your blog – you are a winner. Well, all of us want people to comment on our posts as that is the single most encouraging factor for a blogger to continue blogging[well, along with monetary benefits of course :)]
Along with great content, we also need give our readers something for those informative comments. So, here are a couple of ways which will help you boost or skyrocket comments on your blog:
IMPORTANT – To increase your backlinks here is a list of some of the best blogs with both DoFollow and CommentLuv enabled. Comment on them and increase your search rank and page rank – Click Here
A point to remember – Approve only RELEVANT comments and comments that add to the conversation. For comments like ‘great’ or ‘thank you’ you will always have the option of removing do follow and as well as commentluv from that comment. Also, while you use all these plugins; don’t forget that what matters the most is CONTENT. So, ensure you have the right content in place.
If you know of any more important plugins, do let me know and I would be happy to add it here.
Is it applicable to only wordpress blogs or also for blogpost?
Comment Luv Zindabad:)!!
I agree to most of the things you have mentioned. But as soon as you make your blog a dofollow, be prepared to face the flood of spam comments. That is one reason I had to revert back to nofollow 🙁
@Mohan: You should try Akismet plugin for wordpress, which is generally pre-installed whenever you install WordPress on your custom domain. Since I’ve started using this plugin, even a single spam comment has not appeared in my to-be-approved list. This plugin is quite good.
Nice article Vishal. I have been looking at the pros and cons before implementing it on one of my blogs
This post is quite informative for those bloggers who want to increase comments on their blog (as five above ways). Thank you for your post. And one more, I would like to thank you for sharing the list of some of the best blogs with both DoFollow and CommentLuv enabled. I will try to see all these blogs.
darn! Mine is blogger. I wish I had started in wordpress now. I have been searching for a better comment widget in blogger. But I haven’t come across any yet. 😐
Some of the plugins are for wordpress only and presently I’m using blogger but I think I’m also trying wordpress I heard that it offers a lot of functionality that some blogging sites doesn’t have.
Agree with you, btw i’ve add Comment Luv & Top Commentators and now i use dofollow plugin
Btw how to create sliding in your footer that shows your other post, please share
Great tips… I think social networking is also important… you should share your blog posts in twitter, facebook, digg etc. they do provide a lot of traffic.
Awesome blog. The Keywordluv plugin has been kind to me. I have to say, that there weren’t many sites that I commented on prior to the plugin. Why? It takes time to post comments and I don’t have much. Now that we’re awarded a link for doing so, it is worth it. Thank you for using it.
Yeah you’re right mate DoFollow blog will increase comments, Thanks for great tips 🙂
the tips you posted found useful. by default are blogspot blogs dofollow?
