How To Drag More Commenters To Your Blog Posts

Share this Post >>

Blogs are meant for writing anything and everything. There are personal blogs and business blogs. Whatever may be the blog type and purpose, the one who promotes blog wants to be heard. In other words, if the author of the blog gets feedback or comments on what he is saying, the author will be encouraged to write more.

A blog which attracts comments from different segments of audience can be compared like a physical or virtual hangout which is so lively. We shall discover how readers will participate in your blog by giving useful feedback or comments. The tips I share here are the ones that helped us to get loads of comments in our discount coupon blog that features carbonite and sitterciy discount deals.

Let users revert back with comment

It is not only presentation of good content on your blog but also extending invitation to the reader to post a comment is very important. You can always prompt readers to ask for opinion or share their experience in the subject matter that was discussed. If someone goes thorough the intricacies of the topic that you have discussed, he will be more compelled to hit back with a comment.

Ask questions

As you present content to your audience, it should provoke new thoughts and fresh ideas in them. If you present everything, there will be nothing to be shared by your visitors. You can ask open ended questions, so that your visitors will come back to share their thoughts.

Approved comments

When visitors post comments on your blog, you should be readily available to approve them at the earliest. Visitors will be encouraged to find their comments on your blogs before their next visit to your site and you should not disappoint them. And you should also let the approved comments stay on your blog. If more comments are present on your blog, new visitors will be encouraged to read the content and they may be prompted to leave comments also.

Balanced stature all the time

Even if a visitor responds with negative comments, you should try to win them with positive expressions. You should be balanced in all kinds of circumstances. In extreme situations, where users cross the line of control by posting personal criticism or using uncivilized vocabulary, you should not hesitate to block the user or you can disapprove the comment.

Commenting on other blogs

You can participate in writing comments at other blogs and forums. When you post comments at other blog sites, they will be interested in visiting your own blog and most likely they will also write comment on your blog. It will also create a new stream of visitors from different forums and blogs that you participate in.

Freebies and contests

You can run various contests so that users will participate on large-scale and there will be room for discussion among the readers. Winners in the contests can be awarded some freebies so that your blogs gets more publicity and more and more visitors are prone to post comments on your blogs.

Posting killer article

You can impress your audience by writing killer posts which keeps lingering in their minds for a long period of time. Many-a-times your audience will refer your articles to their friends and members in social networking sites.

Usage of widgets

Your audience will be happy to see their names on top of other comments. You can reward the best commenter by pulling him on top of the comment list by displaying his or her name in the sidebar or footer. This measure will encourage users to post comments again and again. As You can see in the top commenter list at the bottom of this blog.

Avatar display

You can enable avatar functionality on your blog site, so that user’s photo or avatar will be displayed along-with their comment. Some users love to find their face on your comment space.

Offer back links

By using CommentLuv plug-in, back-links will be sent to them who comment on your blog. This will encourage your visitor to comment more.

Shortcomings

Sometimes you may have to go through unexpected and unwanted comments where your language skills or expertise in subject matter may be exposed or criticized. You should have the broadminded approach in acknowledging your shortcomings rather than going in a defensive manner. This will not infuriate others and they may fall in love for your sheer humility in accepting your failures.

Enhance commenting arena

You can present best and easy way of submission of comment. Users should be able to post their comments in less time by going through minimum possible steps. User friendly interface should be implemented.

  4. Hi Jane,
    Thank you for the post. I would agree having a killer article with images draws attention in the form of questions improves engagement with the bloggers. Infographics is the cool thing

  5. Great tips for attracting more comments on blog posts!

    I noticed that you mention “posting killer article,” but do you have any examples of which kinds? Is it articles tailored specifically to your nice audience? Are they ones that have to do with pop culture? Or is a controversial post? I’ve written all kinds of different posts and there doesn’t seem to be any specific rhyme or reason to the amount of comments I receive.

    • Hey Mandy, “killer content” usually is the one which is a post which makes people say “WOW”. It should be written with much details either in a comprehensive manner or short and sweet. The length doesnt matter, but it should be highly useful to the readers in solving a problem or giving a super insight.

      The amount of comments or reactions from people also depend on your level of interaction at Twitter!

      Thanks for your comment.

  12. Jane,
    Well consolidated points. One of the key element I consider, effective commenting on other post. Identify your domain expert blogs and place your niche comments at postings which should sound your domain expertise related to the topic. Most visitors love to read your valuable comments, and will surely build the trust and positively will haul traffic and commentators to your site. Thanks
