How To Do Blog Commenting… Like a BOSS!

Traffic. Something all websites need. And one of the largest sources of traffic is also the easiest to tap into and get a flood of traffic. Yes, I am talking about blog commenting.

It sounds so easy right? Find a high traffic blog and leave your website’s link in a comment. However, do that and you will virtually get no traffic. Why? Because people have no incentive to visit your blog and your comment may not even get approved because it is just spam!

Now, there is only one way to make the most out of blog commenting and get a lot of traffic. Read on.

I never read about this method, I discovered it by accident. I was on a high traffic blog, reading an SEO article and I realized that I have an extremely relevant article on my own blog so I posted a link to it. A few days later I noticed that I got over 200 hits from that single comment! The next day, I read another article which was about email marketing. I wrote an article about email marketing on my blog and left the link in a comment. 3 days later… and I got another 241 views from that comment! Sounds good right?

So here is what I did exactly.

I found a high traffic blog, which was related to my niche. As soon as I saw a brand new article… I wrote about something extremely similar, which goes well with that article.

As soon as I was finished with my article, I immediately left a comment linking to my blog post. Because my blog post was so closely related to that article, it got a lot of hits.

However, I also realized that it was no good that I could only get a surge of traffic with comments. So what I do now, is that I optimize my post to get more and more returning visitors. At the end of your article, leave some links to related content on your blog. When people see that you have quality content all over your blog… they will come back there every day!

And also (I am pretty sure I do not need to tell you this): get their email! The more subscribers you have on your list, the more traffic you can send to your blog just by sending out a broadcast. Simply download Pop Up Domination, install it and get your visitor’s emails!

And that is how to do blog commenting… like a BOSS!

  1. Hopefully this works…lol jk. Great tip! I expect most comments done on JC are done….LIKE A BOSS!
    And a big thumbs up to a 16-year old being so successful online.

    1. They wont allow your links in blog commenting website option as this will be spam and you will be able to add links in comments body … I have doubt my friend on it.

      1. Abhik says:

        I doubt it too..
        Links in comment body may marked as spam by akismet.

      2. Mate Hegedus says:

        They would be spam if they are irrelevant. However, if you have quality and related content… than of course it is going to get approved!

        1. Hey Mate,

          Unless the blog owner already knows you I doubt very much that they’ll approve the comment with the link unless they approve all comments automatically.

          If the comment is really good, it doesn’t need a link in it anyway. People will want to find out more about its author and will visit his or her site.

          It is not cool to put links inside comments that you post on blogs that you have not commented on before and whose owner doesn’t know you well.

          You may presume that your comment is great but I would leave it to other people to determine that.

          1. Mate Hegedus says:

            I agree with what you are saying. However, I still think that if your comment has value… than it is going to get approved.

        2. Erwin Miradi says:

          Nice post you got there Mate. I agree the commenting is important to get ourself recognized.

    2. Mate Hegedus says:

      Thanks 😀

      Now you know how to get traffic like a BOSS!

    3. I agree, don’t do it repeatedly, you will soon find yourself in SPAM BIN, i don’t think its a remarkable idea. Nah…..

  2. PPC Ian says:

    Great tip! I’m huge on blog commenting and really believe in the strategy. The only downside of your particular tip is not all blogs allow links (even nofollow ones).

    1. That’s right Ian,

      Very few blogs will approve a comment with links in it. The writer of this post is right though about the link having to be totally relevant to the post if it’s to have even a slight chance of not being removed.

      It’s different if the blog owner on which you post the comment already knows you well. In such a case the link will be left in the comment and approved.

      1. You have a point there. Personally I don’t allow any links in the comments from somebody who hasn’t commented before. Even returning commentors tend to promote quite a bit, so I tend to be pretty careful. My take on it is if you really want your link there, comment enough to make it to the top commentators, I have no problems with it.

    2. Yes that one is really surprising to me as well … If they are not allowing in website option than how they are going to allow you to add on comments in your comments body.

      1. This guy is lucky, got featured as guest blogger on this A list blog, otherwise the idea he is come up is not so great and will not work always. ( may be throw you into trouble if you repeatedly leave comments with link in it ) I don’t know if you will get traffic this way for long.

    3. Abhik says:

      That’s exactly what I think.
      Also, the comment may marked as spam if you put more than one link.

    4. Mate Hegedus says:

      Of course you are huge on blog commenting. Always trying to be #1 commentor 😀

    5. Erwin Miradi says:

      Yeah I agree. There’s not many blog approves comments with links in the body. Sometimes even the auto approval ones filtered that kind of comment as spam.

  3. PPC Ian says:

    Another blog commenting tip: Add thoughtful, lengthy comments. This is sure to get you noticed, and will draw users to your blog.

    1. The length of a comment is important in case you are liable to leave 2 or 3 words. I don’t necessarily like very long comments unless they are really valuable in their content.

      It also depends on your relationship with the blog owner and if you are commenting back and forth on a subject already. Only in such casses are very short comments OK.

      Otherwise a minimum of 2 or 3 full lines of text across the width of the page is necessary and of course the comment has to be on topic and make sense.

      1. 3 to 4 lines of comments are good for readers as well.

        1. Daniel is also recommending 3 sentence on his latest post.

          1. ah comment with link in it 🙂

        2. Yes ZK,

          3 to 4 lines and as many as 10 lines is good. Any more than that and the blog owner as well as the readers will likely not want to read it.

          Unless of course it’s so brilliant that they will be transfixed by it and will be happy to read on.

          1. I think it is really not about the number of lines, but the content. As long as you add to the conversation, it makes sense.

    2. Erwin Miradi says:

      Yeah agree. But you forget about being controversial. It works sometimes too 😀

  4. MykeTech says:

    Great tips! I had a blog on Wiz Khalifa and got a lot of views from commenting on lil wayne’s blog.

  5. great post. i try to be on as many top commentators list as possible 😀 its really huge traffic from blog comments 🙂

  6. fazal mayar says:

    good post, i think being honest and not spamming and providing thoughtful comments is the way to go.

    1. who2india says:

      Agreed, you should comment honestly and good.

  7. Ivan says:

    Hey!!! what happen with the quality of the content… I was expecting more tricks…

  8. Very well thought out my friend..I will have never thought of that..

  9. Edgar says:

    It sure sounds like a 16 year old wrote it. like a boss?

    1. Mate Hegedus says:

      I try to stand out and be more than just another blogger.

  10. Justin Dupre says:

    Your post is very informative. Thank’s for sharing your experience regarding techniques in blog commenting. Will definitely take this into consideration next time.

  11. Naveen says:

    Nice post . written by a 16 year old makes it even more nicer. I should try this too 🙂

  12. Blog commenting in general is a good strategy. Leaving a link to a related Blog post is a good idea IF the Blog you’re on allows links. Most don’t.

    There is a Plugin called “CommentLuv” that some Blogs run which automatically pulls you latest article title and links to it when you leave a comment. It rewards Blog commentors with a link. I run it on my Blog and many others are starting to use it to encourage comments.

    1. I’ve thought about installing CommentLuv and KeywordLuv across some of my sites as a way to try to encourage comments from real users, I’ve seen it in action on a few sites and I thought it was pretty cool, but I am concerned about the SEO impact. Is it beneficial, or does it dilute your link juice? Right now 90% of the comments that come through for approval are Scrapebox comments. I like the karma though, should I install the plugins for the karma and forget about the SEO implications? Do you have any feedback on the real-world impact?

      1. CommentLuv and KeywordLuv will give you surprising a lot of new visitors to link to an excellent article you have on your blog.

      2. I think it’s good. I don’t approve junk comments and the ones I do approve come from real people with Blogs who are trying to get their word out.

        I have found it to be beneficial and I don’t think it created any negative SEO impact. You can set the nofollow tag if you want on all links.

    2. Yes and there you always have option to choose if you want to post comment with latest blog post and any other post of your choice.

      That should be the best practice, you can use this method with comment love plugin and place your relevant blog post link in there,.

  13. Thanks for the tips about blog commenting i generally share comments about the post alone

  14. This technique is very easy to do and there is a plugin for it because it works.

    Just Google “your search term + CommentLuv” and you are automatically linked to your last post at the bottom of the comment using it’s title, so be sure and have your keywords in it.

    Bloggers who use this link out dofollow.

    Try it.

    Great post, Mate…:)

  15. Caleb says:

    This post provides the perfect reason for using the CommentLuv plugin and I cannot figure why JC doesnt have it installed on this site..perhaps he figures it might bleed his seo work? But ill still request it anyway…

    John Chow, plz install commenluv at once!

  16. Just by consistently showing up on blogs, I get an extra dozen or so visitors per day per blog that I comment on!

    And its funny, because I reference doing things like a boss all the time… like a boss!

    Haha thanks for the awesome post,

    I have started a blog named, [email protected]. I am very new in the field of blogging. I have lot of original content ready for publishing, but I could not get any readers for five of my posts on my blog. That is why I am searching for articles on how to get traffic for blog. In that persuit I came across your website johnchow.com. I am trying to read almost all your articles;but this is one of the most I liked . A Big Thank You.

  18. Patrick says:

    I’ve tried many ways drive traffic to my sites. Some have been marginally successful, others have been failures. Now, on one of my sites, I’m offering to build a simple WordPress site for a small business for $100. I’ll lose money (and time) doing this, but it may drive up traffic and interest in the long run. Hopefully, it will have a multiplying effect.

  19. its really a worthful tips, because most of the online users are spamming with their links, they are not posting to their relevant sites, for link building they are doing like this, but this article will them to learn more.

  20. fas says:

    Better still get AWeber! You need not send mails manually.

  21. Great info. I’m using your tactics in reverse. I wrote this blog post first then came across your article.
    I also found that I received many more comments after I installed Comment Luv.
    Any other Tips?

  22. Erwin Miradi says:

    Nice idea there. But then again I think the point is on the quality of the contents. No matter where and how we get the traffic, they’ll keep coming back if we have rock solid contents in the blog.

    1. true, unless you have quality content, no matter how you get traffic, from where you get traffic doesn’t contribute much.

  23. moni says:

    Nice post. I never thought that even this is also possible to comment like a boss

  24. yinka says:

  25. Allan says:

    I like this article. Like a BOSS 😉 lol

    I’ve never thought about writing a similar article then linking it through the comment. I can see why it would definitely give a surge of traffic. So thanks for this, I’ve learned something.

  26. imould says:

    So useful information for me.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Best Regards

  27. if we do blog commenting in dofollow it will be more worth

  28. blog commenting are divided into dofollow and nofollow but each one has different methods

  29. Great idea, but a lot of blogs don’t like it when you leave a URL on the comment form. Those who are more strict with weeding out comments will immediately dismiss the URL as spam and not even click on it. Glad to know it has worked for you though, and writing a related article just to be able to link back to it shows a genuine intention to engage others.

  30. Essays says:

    These days, it is very difficult to give blog url into comment area, as it will be seen as SPAM. Bloggers do not like their comment area full of urls.

    1. More than one link and you would be in trouble.

      1. The number of links mostly depends on the blog owner. What matters is the quality of the link.

  31. Techmug says:

    I thinks with this tool most of the comments go to spam folder

  32. Superb post i like it your post thanks for sharing.

  33. blog commenting really helps a lot in serp movements and PR juice

  34. Amani says:

    Yes traffics is most important. No matter how quality your product or services without traffics there will be no sale. No sale=no revenue=no profit. Its like a shop without customers.

  35. if u comment in good blog it will help you to have good pr juice and have some conversations
