You already know why commenting is so important for bloggers and how it help you build healthy relationships with fellow bloggers and readers. Thus, knowing anything related to blog comments and about commenting system is utmost important for every blogger.
First of lets understand the importance of comments on your blog
- If you are devoting time to create killer posts but you are not getting comments then your blog looks stale and stagnant. Thus, getting comments is important to make it look regular blog with good user engagement. If you have no engagement on your blogs, advertisers will hardly advertise with you.
- Comments are in text format and so that they are also indexed by search engines just like the post content. Thus there are more keywords and other texts naturally targeted. Many times I get traffic from keywords which are not even used in the content but used in comments. Thus, comments help increase organic traffic as well.
- If we are getting huge number of comments on our blog posts then we can show our posts with huge comments to our clients. They might get impressed with it and love to advertise on the blog.
- When you get comments on your blog, you come to know about them and when you reply to their comments. You indirectly build relationships which is indeed important in blogging.
These are the benefits of getting comments on your blog and for this you need to know how to drag more and more comments on your blog posts?
To drag more comments for your blog posts, the first thing is to do a lot of commenting on your friends’ blogs, on similar niche blogs and other blog posts which you love to read.
Now when you comment on a blog post, author might reciprocate and come to your blog, its your duty to make things easier for them and also try to give few benefits to them.
Commentluv is one such plugin that adds few extra value in your blog’s commenting system which you readers can’t ignore.
Now Lets understand what the CommentLuv plugin is all about?
CommentLuv is a WordPress plugin developed by Andy Bailey. When a commenter puts his website address in the website field, this plugin fetches the latest posts from his blog as list from which he can select one to show along with his comments. So this plugin actually helps commenters to show their latest post with their comment. Check out the screenshot to understand better:
