How to Market With Blog Comments The Right Way

Sat, Sep 4, 2010

Blogging Tips

It seems like it’s my destiny to write a post about comments! Everyplace I go, there is information about comments, the proper use of comments and the benefits of comments!

Since my purpose in blogging is to get the word out, share with the world what I have learned, I figure I need to write a post about how to make use of the comments we leave! 

Yaro Starak is one of my favorite teachers and as you see by his movie, he understands what we need to know about ‘the right way’ to leave comments!

Not only information about comments, Yaro teaches everything we need to know to monitize our blog! He has an awesome coaching program where we can learn it all!  Click here to join the Blog Mastermind Mentoring Program For this post, I’ll focus on comments!

Another blog that I happened on was Sire’s Wassupblog. Sire shares his Commenting Rules 101 and teaches that if we want to improve our comments, we need to:
*Read the Entire Post – we need to NOT do as Kimberly Castleberry defines as TMISTE (too much information, I’ll skip to the end).

*Formulate Comment – take time after reading the post to think about what we learned and what we already know about the subject.  Put a thought together before we write.

*Proof Read Comment – Re-read what we wrote!  It’s amazing when we see the mistakes we made the first time through!

*Don’t Spam Comments – Even though we might be tempted, Don’t!  Most of the time the author will delete the comment when they see the spam. 

*Read What Others Have to Say – It is a lot of fun joining in the conversation!  You’ll get backlinks and meet new people!

*Use Name, Not Keyword – Even though you want maximum exposure, blog owners would rather have your name than your keywords!

*Nothing to Say Then Don’t Say Anything – Sire’s last tip from Commenting 101 is to not say anything when you have nothing to say! A simple ‘social bookmarking’ the post will be thanks enough.

In Sire’s most recent post, teaching people about comments, Sire gives us a test to see if we are leaving good comments!

All this comment stuff started for me the other day when I left a comment on Sire’s post and he replied with a letter sent to my email inbox!  That led to his teaching me about Comment Threaded Plugin!  Now I know how to reply to all the comments left on my blog and to send the comment writer an email with my response! 

With Both Yaro’s and Sire’s help, I’ve learned the right way to write comments that will drive traffic to my blog!  It will be fun to see it come to action!

What experiences have you had with comments? Do you use Comment Threaded Plugin? Do you read other comments before you leave one?  Have you developed relationships with the people who leave comments on your blog? Leave a comment and let me know!

    I don’t always read the comments already left on a blog, before I leave my own. Also much of the spam one receives on a blog comes from automated bots.

    What irks me is when someone comes to my blog and leaves a comment not relevant to the post they are commenting on.

    Yes, I do use commented threaded plugins.

    Hi Linda,

    It seems everybody is adding their bits about blog commenting. Including me. BTW, I’ve found your blog from twitter’s #blogchat by Rose.

    Answering your questions: I read the post but not all comments.

    About developing relationships online, when I started people who’ve been commenting on my blog are people I knew already, but then I intend to meet new people and increase the number of my friends online.

    I recently learned that Comment Threaded Plugin isn’t necessary anymore if you’ve upgraded to WordPress 3.0 as it’s become part of core WordPress. Notice how you see “reply” twice.

    Also notice below there’s 2 check box with “Notify me of followup comments via email”. There are 2 plugins doing the same thing.

    Time to check your plugin settings.

      Thank you Ben for visiting my blog and leaving comments! As far as the double ‘reply’ tabs, it seems to me that one is to reply to the original post, the other is to the reply to the comment. I’m going to check it out. If you’d be so kind to tell me what you receive in your inbox, then I’d know what other people are seeing! I look forward to reading your last post! It is crazy that so many of us are sharing information about comments! I guess we all want to be heard!!

    I always received an email when someone leaves a comment on my blog. I also receive an email from you if someone leaves a comment on a post I have commented on. You seem to have an automatic notification that the commenter needs to opt out of if they don’t want to be notified. What I really want to be able to do is just receive notification from some one when they are just repyling to my comment that I left not when every one else leaves a comment. Not sure if that is doable.
    Does seem to be a duplicate of notification buttons at the bottom here.

    Hi Linda
    Always enjoy your posts. Like you, I read Aussie Sire’s comment post and thought it was very topical. I actually read through all of a post before I comment and I also read all of the comments too! I know,I should be working on my blog but I so enjoy learning from others and being part of the blogging community that I can’t resist.
    I don’t have a comment’s policy on my blog yet. Being a new blog I have only just started getting regular visitors and commenters to my site and so far my anti-spam plugin seems to mostly take care of inappropriate posts.

    Hi Linda, I always get exited when I see another great post, which this is, of how important it is to leave good comments, because I believe the more people that do so the more the word gets out. If each post converts at least one commentator it’s done it’s job. Naturally we would hope it manages to convert a lot more than that.

    I would also like to thank you for the linkluv, no-one appreciates it more than I do.

    In regards to the two “Notify me of followup comments via email” do you have the “Enable threaded (nested) comments” box in your WP settings ticked? If you do I reckon disabling that will solve your problem.

    Comment Threaded Plugin is a must. :) Great for engagement purposes, and can be quite a handy one whenever I wish to respond to other commenters. If time permits, I always browse through what others are saying before leaving my thoughts (great seeing Rose here by the way). I see comment form as microblogging so it’s amazing how we all get to learn from one another’s POV while discovering new blogs to read.

    Thanks to Sire’s tweet, I’m here for the first time. Nice meeting you Linda. Keep up the great work.

  8. Miguel@Free iTunes Codes Says:

    When I usually look for blogs to comment in I look through and if they don’t allow keywords as a name then I won’t waste my time. I read the post and think of a thoughtful comment so if the blog owner doesn’t allow it then they won’t get my comment.

    I do have a relationship with a blog owner I started commenting on but he doesn’t allow keywords so I don’t post on his blog anymore I just post on his forum.

    As far as reading the comments before mine, it depends on how many there are. Also I do not like reading the comments that are all saying the same thing like, nice post, leave more like this. It is a challenge making the comment emotional sometimes. Also whenever I can, I try to add my own tip on what the post is about.

    Hi Linda,

    What experiences have you had with comments? Not to good for awhile because I wasn’t really commenting on other peoples blog. Just over the past few months have a started doing that. It’s like night and day.

    I have to agree with you about Sire, he is the man. I have learned a lot about commenting right just by reading his posts. Also, the fact that he usually always returns the favor is very cool.

    Do you use Comment Threaded Plugin? I was for a very short time. I stopped because I also use Thesis 1.8 and seopressor, wp-threaded plugin doesn’t play well with it.

    Have you developed relationships with the people who leave comments on your blog? Yes

    Great post thanks for sharing

      Yes, I use Comment Threaded Plugin, I really like it! I’ve heard that Thesis has issues with a few things. It’s a bummer because it’s been recommended by many online marketers as the theme to use when monitizing, and that’s my next step! I look forward to reading your latest post!

    Linda,

    Wow, how comprehensive this is. It is common sense to so not hard to remember. I often try to add some of my common wisdom to the subject at hand, but when it comes to commenting, I think this covers it. and the video is great. Yaro is very clear and articulate. I am going to syndicate this more than I usually do as this is really helpful.

    I have to admit that sometimes it is hard to sit through someones video if they are not really organized and rambling. I tend to shut it down after 30 seconds if it is not compelling. I got all the way through tis one!

      I couldn’t agree more! Yaro is one of my favorites and this video is great! I think that giving a video 30 seconds is what most people do! When I watch a video I immediately look to see the lenth and like you, listen to the first few seconds to decide if it’s worth the time to watch.

    Emotional engagement is an easy term to remember when it comes to commenting. I often read an article, then think about it for a while before coming back to make a comment. No wonder the computer is forever running slow!

    Thanks for pointing out that we need to proofread comments before leaving them. How many times I’ve hit the “Submit” button and then seen an error in my comment. Ouch! How embarrassing!

    You’ve taught me to reply to comments on my blog. I very rarely read comments on others blogs; however, I have developed some fun contacts through commentors on my blog.

    Hi Darlene and Linda,

    I understand the problem of not being able to edit your comments after hitting “Submit Comment”.

    As a blog owner, we can make our blog more friendly to commenters by implementing the “Edit Comments XT” plugin, which allows commenters to edit their comments after they’ve hit the submit button.

    Or if you’ve left a typo, contact the blog owner and ask to have the typo corrected.

    Thanks so much for this post. I cannot tell you how much time I spend reading comments that are obviously spam comments in my admin panel. Yes I do use akismet, but sometimes it marks pingbacks as spam and I want those to show as comments. Anyway, I do try to read the comments on a blog before I post one unless there are already a lot of comments on the blog. I do try to add something to the conversation when I post a comment. As far as my own blog goes, I do even try to reply to each comment that warrants a reply. It is important to me to build a community on my blog and replying to comments is a great way to do that.

    Thank you for sharing that great video and advice on Commenting. I have say I have been guilty of leaving short comments, epically when I not as familiar with the topic being talked about. I started off thinking that if I comment something that would help people with there ranking. Which I have learned it does, but after seeing Yaro’s video I understand how important having good comments and leaving them is to help you grow and help others grow as well.

    Boy I am guilty of not always reading all the comments before I leave a comment. I will read them all if there are only a few, there is normally some amazing information found in comments. Sometimes I actually find I learn more from the comment than I might have from the original post.

    I think there is a lot of value in learning how to properly leave comments. I suggest everyone take your advice and learn the proper way.

    Hi Linda, great article on comments! Wow, I thought it would be common courtesy to read the entire article at least before commenting but then perhaps I am old-fashioned. If a subject doesn’t interest me, I won’t comment. Due to time constraints and desire to contribute to a wider blog community, I skim the comments already left. I have only recently started to really get my blog working so this was a very useful article – thanks!

    Linda,
    Apparently your post is working by all the comments that have been left here on your blog :-) Nice job!

    I believe that as the owner of my blog I owe it to the people that have taken the time to stop by and read it AND leave a comment the courtesy of a comment back. It’s a great way to engage them and others and it also can further your relationship with them and make it stronger.

    The great thing about syndication is that often times a new reader will stop by my blog. When they leave a comment I always go to their blog and visit it and comment back for them. I will often syndicate it for them too. I look for them on Twitter and Facebook and make an effort to connect with them. Comments lead to so much and the benefits are huge.

    Thanks for helping everyone to understand how crucial this can be.

    Linda, I haven’t seen much of Yaro’s work before, but I can certainly see why you are such a fan. I very much enjoyed watching this video. I haven’t given my comments much thought before, so I am relieved to see that I think I do follow most of the rules most of the time.
    Like Belinda, I would love to know if there is any way of just subscribing to the follow up comment on the comment I have left, rather than having to receive all follow up comments. Clearly you can’t get a dialog going unless you see the follow up comments, but some blogs get so many comments it becomes difficult to keep up. Anyway thanks for another valuable post Linda.

    Comments are such a great way for a blog owner to interract with readers. For me, it’s nice to meet the people who visit and to have some conversation with them. So, as a blog visitor, I love to leave comments to share my thoughts with the blog owner and have some conversation. I enjoy reading other’s comments as well, as there often is more great information shared by others (as was pointed out above). It’s almost like a small community where you can get to know a few other bloggers and readers…..

    Thanks, Linda, for a good post and for starting a great conversation!

    I don’t always read comments before I write a comment. I have a limited time and I don’t read fast but I understand the value of it. It is really continuing the conversation from the blog. I love that aspect of a blog post instead of an article.

    I loved the points you brought up! I have been blogging for almost two years now and this is definitely something I can work on! I think commenting is really building a relationship with you and the author!

  24. Rob Wilson Says:

    I always read the whole blog post but I sometimes skim other people’s comments on the blog post – I’ll read them all if there are just a few or if they seem particularly interesting or vastly different from one another or if my internet connection is super fast or I am avoiding working :)

    Proofreading your comments is really important. It is amazing how many times I have looked them over and realized I have misspelled things or wrote something I didn’t mean to say. I saw somewhere (I think on Facebook where somebody said oh that was a Freudian slip and the other guy said no it was a Jungian bra, lol) Sometimes things come out wrong and are only apparent after a proofing.

    Anyway, I think it is great if you develop a relationship with somebody who comments on your blog – it’s just another way to connect. Depending on how personal your blog gets those connections could run fairly deep.

    Have a great week – Rob

    Why not read the entire blog? My experience has been reading the entire blog is a learning event for me. One exception is when people are using their blog to sell their product and the blog read like a sales letter.

    Reading the comments in many instance have given me a clearer picture of the post. In this particular post the comments on Comment Threaded Plugin added to my understanding how to use this particular plugin. As a results of reading the comments I have a question, do I use the plugin or the feature in WordPress?

    Thanks Linda for adding to my blogging experience.

    I just found your blog this evening via a link posted by Beverly Monical on Facebook today (your Fiverr post – this was new to me!). So I had to show my husband your post tonight and show him the Fiverr website. Then I checked out several more of your posts here.

    I love this post about blog comments – particularly since I am new at this blogging thing (just started my blog in December)! In fact, just a couple of days ago I figured out that the ‘generic posts’ that I’ve been receiving on my blog are nothing more than spam.

    I’ll be back here often to read up on many posts that have caught my attention. I look forward to getting better acquainted. Take care!

    Your mentor is very good. I’ve bookmarked this page for a possible link-back (I hope you don’t mind :) )

    Sometimes, I get into the habit of posting my comments without proofreading them. I also do not usually read other people’s comments – especially when these are one-liners.

    “Thank you.”
    “Great info.”
    “Nice tips.”
    “Interesting.”

    sound very spammy even though the poster could mean well. What attracts me are well-thought out posts with a personal touch in them. I feel more at ease knowing that I’m reading something from a real person who’s truly interested in what I had written about.

    Personally I leave comments only the post which helped me or I like that post. Whenever I’m leaving a comment I always try to leave comments with adding values to it, and I also don’t forget to Proof Read the Comment before leaving on any site.

    I think most of the tips I’m following what you presented here, and now I will check Commenting 101 post.

    Thanks

    Hi Linda, this is a great post.

    Comment marketing is a great way to do outreach. It helps your sites rank in the search engines and allows you to make a bunch of great contacts that could help you in the future. Oh yeah, you get a small trickle of traffic too.

    The hardest thing i have found is really finding good blogs to comment on in your niche. Unless you run a site in the internet marketing or related niches there is often a lack of blogs to comment on. That being said, if you can find some good ones you should see some great results for your efforts.

    Everyone should follow these basic rules, but how many actually do? Some of my blogs take more work on clearing the spam comments than actually contributing with articles. It’s like people never learn.

    Hi Linda,

    Learning the “best practices” to this whole internet marketing thing can definitely be a bit of a puzzle. A lesson I learned long ago was to ‘pick your guru’ and stick to their advice come hell or high water.

    The fact is there is just too much clutter and opposing opinions to ever think that you’re doing anything the right way if you spend much of your time searching for the “best” way to do it. Paralysis by analysis sets in and nothing gets accomplished.

    I’ve followed Yaro for a few years now and he certainly seems to be genuine and more than competent enough in the field of blogging to stick with and learn from.

    All the best – John

    I’m appreciative to the content you put on this post. Actually I mostly agree that commenting should deals with several regulations and behaviors. To me, it is always interesting to know that other people enjoy our blog and take some time to participate. Thus, leaving comment without spamming is very well respected. Keep up that good writing, Linda. Regards.

    I get a ton of comments from marketers who leave unrelated comments. Most of the times these don’t even get approved so they are also wasting their time since they won’t even get a link out of it! Great advice.

I know many seeking just to get links do – but if they don’t get approved…what a waste of time. It’s easy to spot as most use there anchor keyword as there name.

    Unless the comment is relevant – it’s spam.

    Most of the time people leave comments for the sake of backlink and majority of those comments are ‘left-handed compliments.’ Blog commenting works when you have something beneficial to add in the conversation, showing that you’re interested, have read and understand the topic very well.

    I also suggest choose blogs that are relevant and tailored to your niche so that you have something meaty to add up.

By the way, I am heading to Wassup Blog to read Sire’s commenting Rules. Thanks for sharing.
