Three Ways to get Your Comments Noticed

Blog commenting is quite possibly one of the best ways I know of building links to your blog, in fact whenever I mentioned a list of back-link building methods it will be at the top of the list every single time. They reckon that there are at least around 10 back-link-built comments for every genuine comment and on that basis it is not very difficult to understand why most blog owners will skim over these genuine comments and ignore them.

Here are three tips to help your comments stand out from the crowd.

1. Write Longer

The average comment is about 50 words so any admin’s eye will certainly be caught if you write a comment that takes up considerably more space, they will be more inclined to reply to you.

2. Interact With Other Commentators

If you read a post and find that another commentator has left a comment that you wish to address or add to then reply to that comment and aim your comment at the original commentator, the admin will love this kind of interactivity.

3. Make Use of HTML

A lot of WordPress blogs allow you to make use of some simple HTML tags such as bold, italic, underline, and quote, and if you use these it will make your comment stand out more as very few linkbuilders will take the time to do this.

Do you have any more tips? Feel free to add them in the comments section. 🙂

  • Well thanks for coming out finally to say hello! And yes I am usually way too lazy to comment most times as well.

  • I think one point that was left out is to make an honest attempt to provide valuable feedback.saying “nice job”, “good post”, etc don’t provide any value to the blog, and don’t establish yourself as an authority.

  • I think instead of reading such kind of tips and commenting in thus an ‘artificial” way, commenting should be done in a more natural way.. it depends on the commentator..either he gives sincere comments or he just does not comment at all..

    I don’t know how many of you will agree with my point..

  • Hi Dean,
    Writing long comment is not my strength because I am Swedish and living in Spain, so English is my third language. But write in bold, italic, underline, and quote was something new for me, thanks for the tip.

  • You are right Dean, commenting is still a great technique to get backlinks. However, most people like sticking to the average word limit, writing longer comments actually does help. I have a first han experience of this, and yes HTML tags really help make your comment look different, thanks a lot for sharing.

  • I never check follow up comments lol

    I guess I should start checking them from now on

    anyways good short post.

    • Oh you certainly should!

      I’m not very quick at replying to comments left on my blogs and that is something I definitely need to work on. 🙂

      I removed your link because I do not wish to promote drugs on this blog. 🙂
