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.
