7 Little Known Ways to Get Your Comments Read

Written by Julia on September 17th, 2010. Posted in Articles

In the previous article on blog commenting I wrote that you should comment on a blog only if you had something valuable to add to the discussion and that only valuable comments would be of benefit to you. If you provide a useful comment, not only will it be approved and posted but there are more chances that it will be noticed by the blog author and other people who can follow your URL and bring more traffic to your site.

But what is a valuable comment? And are good comments always noticed and read? This is what I'd like to talk about in this article.

When DoFollow Blogs Can Hurt You

Written by Julia on August 22nd, 2010. Posted in Articles

Being bloggers we all like good comments. A good comment adds to the conversation, provides useful information and relevant links. The commenter doesn't drop many links to his/her multiple blogs or websites in the comment text.

And we all hate spam. The owners of "DoFollow" blogs observe an explosion of borderline spam comments and moderate like crazy!

You may think you did everything right. You typed your SEO terms into the "Name" field and wrote a comment. And since the blog is "DoFollow" why not add one more link in the signature to get more backlinks and clicks?

You think this is smart. However, you hurt yourself.

The majority of Internet marketers believe that the success is in getting the website ranked high for one or two primary keywords, and they put all the efforts to achieve this goal. This works, but not always.

Sometimes to achieve better results and convert your website visitors into customers, you need to think outside of the box, be original and unique.
