Leaving a thought provoking and insightful comment on a blog post along with a name, email address and link is not only a great way to get an inbound link but also improve your brand visibility and establish your place.
Do you follow commenting etiquettes or additional guidelines to submit your worthwhile comment?
What if I replace above sentence with conversation with your friends?
Do you think twice in indulging in discussion with your friends?
I do not think twice before commenting on my fellow blogger’s post or even replying them. You should also not sound robotic while commenting.
- Replace fellow bloggers with friends.
- Replace commenting etiquettes with conversation with your friend.
Say If I am wrong. I want to give one illustration through my own experience. Not many days passed when Pro blogger Donna Merrill shared one of my posts What I Have Learnt From My List Post by addressing me “My new blogging friend Shiwangi Shrivastava brings out very important topic”. This underlined sentence is very touching and the word friend strike your head bone.
The words like dear, friend, bro, sis and take care may sound unprofessional but make your comment more conversational and build your relationship further. In other word you can say Non professionalism keep your professionalism alive.
I am presenting some pronounced points which will grow your Blog’s comment. As I have got an extension in the number of comments. May noticeable stuff turned out to be helpful for you as well.
Obviously if strangers come to your blog even you welcome them with your polite response. Suppose when any guest come to your house you welcome them by showing your hospitality. Similarly your blog is your sweet home so you should generate such warm effect via comments that his or her first visit turn into often visit.
2. Use strong and descriptive words
I don’t understand why every blogger try to make things simple may be it is their own style. According to me I love to incorporates variety of tactics. Lets take some illustration again.
Don’t use Use
Really happy Ecstatic
Not every time I am saying to use such strong words but sometimes you should just to set your comment or post apart from others.
3. Build community with your replies
It is always sane to respond to the comment instant. It shows that how prompt and caring you are for your commenter. But sometimes due to your other liabilities if you are unable to respond back promptly, well in that in case you can express your excuse for the better harmony.
4. Always be ready to face vary in opinion
Remember you cannot please everyone with your thoughts in the post. You should respect your commenter’s point of view even if you disagree. Disagreement in views between commenter and replier does not mean that anyone is right or wrong. It just means that both sides have difference of opinions. You should be smart enough to find the midst way out so no sides get hurt.
5. Involve yourself in conversation
In my last post Women’s Day special-My 7 Favourite Women’s Blogger, me and Nirmala involved in conversation. I engaged Nirmala not only for increasing the numbers of comment but wanted to interact with her genuinely. Conversation builds relationship. Who else don’t want to be connected with friendly conversation? I always try my best to involve myself with my fellow bloggers oops friends.
Untargeted keywords again
I am happy to get more comments so I thought I should share my tips with my readers about growing Blog’s comment. I wanted to replace keywords or link building stuff with the interactions and relationship building. Whatever I am getting the response through building relationship not through targeting keywords.
Blog zone is my second home. Recently I am told that I can have better logo design in my blog. I frequently answer I have designed my blog with 50-60 comments, 70-80 likes for a post and few shares and still striving to get more members to add more value to design. Still need to grow more lot.
Lines for you
Comments make your blog more visible. Either your comment for others or earning comment for yourself the temptation should not lack that matters. Interaction with readers or fellow bloggers or friends is my keywords. Is this post is really pills for you or not. Do let me know through your priceless comments.
Celebrate Holi on a colorful note find the rainbow of your life. Very Happy Holi to all my friends.
